Do you think she is pure Border Collie?

We bought what we thought was a pure Border Collie. The parents were on site so I took pictures. The owner said they were both pure BC's.

When we took her to the vet for her shots they said they think she is mixed with Aussie because of her color. What do you think?

Her dad

Her mom

I don't really care what she is. She is such a sweet girl and we love her so much already! I just wondered what you thought.

I'll add this one to my mental list of bizzare stuff vets say...

Looks like a Border Collie to me!
I bring my Aussie pups to work w/me (dog groomer), clients always want to know what kind of dogs they are. One is a red-tri, the other a blue merle. I guess people in this town aren't familiar w/blue merles, as they seem suprised when I tell them she is an Aussie too!
