(Credit of new breed description goes to my friend Carter aka cornbread, she left this on my Facebook page! LOL- I just dug up the appropriate pics-, she's always taken great interest in the Limo)

And to think that we got her spayed and didn't know we had a rare breed on our hands! Gah!

Too funny. If only you had known ahead of time you could have made lots of money breeding her. Who wouldn't want a dog that is such a talented and sleek ballet dancer. :)

BREED HISTORY: In the late 1970s, a German Shepherd Dog was mated To a Dachshund, some say accidentally, some say as the result of a bet made in a rural Georgia bar. In the intervening years, outcrosses were made with feists to refine the breed, but the modern Limo has remained much the same since the early part of the 21st century.
