20% chihuahua. Then, Blue heeler, hound, Great Pyrenees, and a bunch of other.
40 pounds

Looks a lot like one of my dogs. We've been trying to pin down a dominant breed since we got her a few months ago. I suspect she's like me - an American mutt. No wonder I like her.

Ruby is much the same, had both of us wrapped around her paw within hours of her arrival. She has impeccable table manners mind!

Ruby... mostly Australian Cattle Dog. She's evolving as a tracker and speedster - if chasing a lure counts.

She ran a 7.74 sec 100 yds last weekend. This week it was 7.57 sec (27.04 mph). Personal Best! They get 2 runs per day at this AKC sanctioned event. For her breed (mixed) - All American large dog, non-pedigree - she's currently ranked at #163 in the US. Top 5 run 31+ mph. Amazingly fast.

Ruby ended the 100 yqrd dash season with a >28 mph run. She broke into the top 100 fastest in the US AKC trials. Not bad for her 1st year!

Summer's here and the latest competition is "dock diving". A 35" running start to how far she can leap into a pool. She skipped over beginner and master (intermediate) and is performing at the senior level.

Today she broke 23'!

Saw the competition for this event pop up on TV.. I think on the 4th. It is incredible to watch. Made me think of your Ruby.

My favorite hairy pussy's name is Misaki ("beautiful blossom"). She's indeed beautiful, I know her since late 2018. Classic brown-grey European Shorthair. She's our "secondary rail and bus stop cat". On rainy days, she often sits in the bus shelters, but normally she relaxes in the bushes around.
Everyone can cuddle with her, she has no mistrust to people. She comes on my call and normally welcomes me with her happy meowing. She's actually 9 years old, but curiously looks older.

Funnily, originally she's the cat of my mothers actual young female neighbor, which had Misaki as a child! But Misaki always wandered to her actual owners around the corner, so they gave her to them.

Yet another spin on AKC dock diving. Air Retrieve... Lure is suspended 2' above the dock and it's further back after each successful grab. The top tier is 21'. Ruby is grabbing it at 19'. I love the flat out form. I never knew this type of competition existed. Sure beats primping and running in a circle.
