I found an entertaining time waster last night. It is a site that allows you to upload a photo of your dog and it tries to tell you what kind of dog it is. Our dog Skye is a rescue dog and so we have no idea of her breed. At the animal control center where we got her, they thought she was a Bearded Collie or “Beardie” (Don’t let the “Collie” part of the name fool you, Beardies look like Sheepdogs.)
Anyway when I discovered the “What-Dog.net” I right away started sending in photos of Skye. The result comes back showing your dog in a big photo with information about their guess as to the breed. The small stamp-like photo gives you an image of the breed they are guessing. Each photo I sent generated a different answer. I was surprised when the first one came back “Skye Terrier” since the name of the breed was the same as our dog’s name.
We have often thought our dog was a Bearded Collie, or Dandie Dinmont Terrier (because of the eyes), but even though this site often seemed pretty far-fetched in its results, it was a lot of fun to see what it would come back with. Below are all the results I got for Skye.
