It could be an Appenzeller Sennenhung/Mountain Dog But I'm not a canine expert ;)
I agree Karen look here too. http://www.akc.org/breeds/appenzeller_sennenhunde/index.cfmBeautiful dog!
Such a large dog to have such petite features. Thank you!
looks like my friends aussie, except for the tail.I love all the dog pics you put on. More please.
It does look a bit like one of the appenzellers.... but I am another of your fans who would so love to see an image of a Cavalier... The tricolor, King Charles, has almost identical colors in the same distribution as the beautiful appenzellers but that is where the similarity ends. Cavaliers have much shorter legs, a thick furry tail, and generous feathers on the legs and slippers on the feet.
It looks like an early Bernese Mountain dog ( the above is the German name) although rather petite. They almost died out until a breeder sought to make sure the breed was not lost. They are the origin of all Swiss Mountain dogs ( above mentioned, plus Saint Bernards, Swiss Mtn. dog, Greater Swiss Mtn. dogs and a couple of others). Today the "Berners" are a much bigger dog ( although not as big as the Saints) and are the strongest dog breed - able to pull up to 1200 pds. They were breed to pull large wooden milk carts in Switzerland. We have a beautiful male and are so thankful the breed did not die out. Would love to see more images of the Bernese Mountain dog as well as Saint Bernards.
