Is the Border Collie / Cocker Spaniel Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Border Spaniel

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Border Spaniel is a cross between a pure Border Collie and a pure Cocker Spaniel, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This mix is recommended to the high energy home with lots of stimulation. The dog is unlikely to be happy if left alone for long hours during the day.

Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, but many of these mixes seem to lean strongly toward the Border Collie side, and some owners have said their dogs shed heavily.

Behavior / temperament:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, but the Border Collie brings high intelligence to a degree where it may sometimes seem the dog is reading your mind. This mix is likely to be able to solve problems. If the problem is that you have allowed your pet to become bored, it will find a way to become destructive.
