    I’ve had my amazing girl Maisy for 5 months now and besides a Parson terrier, I cannot for the life of me figure out what she might be mixed with!

    She has all the characteristics of a pure person besides her coat. I’ve never yet met anyone who has said a parson can have extremely silky/long but curly hair. Anyone else? Anything? I’ll eventually get her a doggy DNA test if it’s worth it.

    She stands 16 inches at the shoulder and she weighs 18 lbs. She is all white with tan spots. Her body is proportionate unlike the Jack Russell Terriers who are more rectangular in body shape. Her head and facial features are square/more blocky. She also does not shed besides some tiny spears of fur I find every now and then. But shedding is minimal

    She looks similar to my old Jack Russel to be honest who came from a long line of workers but she didn't have a silky coat but rough..

    She certainly isn't a purebred Parson. A long and silky/curly coat would not be correct at all. PRTs can be smooth, broken or rough coated.

    Also, at twelve inches in height, she's too small.

    She's definitely a mix.

    Looks like a poodle mix to me, but the photos are hugely clear.

    She definitely could be because she doesn’t shed. She mults in tiny balls like my YorkiPoodle. She has only one coat as well, not a double coat again like my yorkipoodle. She’s silk!

    ..This is one of my PRTs being shown as a six month old pup.

    I think you could see the difference.

    I see Bedlington in yours. Her body shape and coat look that way.

    I definitely see the difference! These two dogs look just like her. The one lying down is a JRT/Poodle and the one by the flowers is a PRT/Poodle.

    I also see Bedlington terrier in her - it was my first thought when I saw her. Think it's her body shape.
