Is the Border Collie / American Pit Bull Terrier Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Pit Collie, Border Pit

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 Collie / American Pit Bull Terrier Mix is a cross between a pure Border Collie and a pure APBT, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. This isn't a common mix, but you may occasionally encounter it in a rescue. If it's obvious to the eye that this animal is an APBT mix, check your local laws to make sure you are allowed to hold the so-called pit bull mixes in your area.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog. In this case, the appearance of your pet could be very different depending on whether the APBT or the Collie traits dominate. In some individuals, you can easily see that the APBT in the mix. Expect a muscular, energetic dog.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, most owners agree that the Pit Collie isn't the right choice if you just want to kick back and watch TV with your pet. They need mental and physical stimulation.
