I often scour google images with the search terms "doberman husky" to see if any new photos come up with his similar look. You better believe I've seen most of what's out there. I'm a tad obsessed with checking out similar looking mixes to compare them to my doberdog. I'm fascinated. Once again, it's all about his mysterious past. The sanctuary told us he is Doberman Husky, and I've always just gone by what they said.....
But then, last night.....the Loki Doberdog world as I know it changed......furever...
While enjoying Loki's favourite social media feed, The Twitters, I came across a fun new fur-follower Kelly Dog @KaiVnm with a very doppleganger-esque photo. It was uncanny! So then I dug a little deeper and looked at some her adorable doggerpics....and then black n' tan with big eared worlds collided.... but this was no doberman-husky she's an AUSTRALIAN KELPIE!!
This is Kelly Dog (who you should all follow on twitter):
Breed Description: Slightly longer than he is tall, the Kelpie has a broad chest and firm hindquarters that contribute to his flexible, energized appearance. The head is long and narrow. The medium length tail is low set. The short, compact feet have well arched toes. The double coat consists of a short and dense undercoat and a hard, straight and weather-repellent outer coat (Loki has this!)
Breed Characteristics: their easy trainability and keenness on the job make them a fundamental component of the workforce. They are ready to respond immediately to any signal given by their masters, even from a great distance. (hmmm not quite Loki.....he's a flight risk.....)
Size: Height: 17 - 20 inches (43 - 51 cm)
Weight: 25 - 45 pounds (11 - 20 kg) (well...this isn't Loki....he's 83lbs......)
In conclusion, I will continue to obsess over the Australian Kelpie, Loki's mini-me from down-under.
What do you think of the doppleganger effect?!
