Is the German Shepherd Dog / Collie (Smooth) Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Shollie

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.

A first-generation Shollie is the result of breeding a German Shepherd Dog with Collie. You never get an entirely predictable result from a mixed breed, but considering the heritage of these two highly intelligent dogs with a real sense of purpose, expect a large, intelligent dog with lots of energy that needs to be channeled into meaningful work or interesting exercise. If you don't have time to work out with the dog, you might be wise to pick something a little more chill.

Appearance / health:
All mixed-breeds vary, but with this mix, expect an energetic, athletic larger dog.

Behavior / temperament:
While the personality of a mixed-breed isn't entirely predictable in advance, you should certainly expect to spend a lot of time socializing and playing with the Shollie from an early age. A bored, poorly socialized GSD / Collie mix could be neurotic or destructive.
