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

Species group:

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 Australian Shepherd / Collie (Smooth) Mix is a cross between a pure Australian Shepherd and a pure Collie (Smooth) Mix, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. These intelligent, intuitive, and sometimes sensitive dogs will be a real handful unless you have a large property and something interesting for them to do.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog. But you can expect an attractive, sturdy animal that looks more like the Shepherd or more like the Collie depending on the roll of the genetic dice.

Behavior / health:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the cross between two of the world's most highly regarded herding breeds is going to give you a double dose of the herding dog personality-- intelligent, intuitive and sometimes sensitive, and full of boundless energy for working in the great outdoors. An Australian Shepherd / Collie (Smooth) Mix confined to a small apartment will be a sad and possibly destructive animal.
