Is the Border Collie / Australian Kelpie 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 Kelpie / Border Collie mix is a cross between a pure Border Collie and a pure Australian Kelpie, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. While this cross is rarely made intentionally, you may occasionally encounter it at a rescue. This mix is highly regarded for its intelligence and lively personality.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance depending on which breed's traits dominate, the Australian Kelpie / Border Collie mix will almost certainly be a good-sized and highly athletic animal.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, owners of the Australian Kelpie / Border Collie mix repeatedly emphasize the high energy level of this mix of two top herding dogs. If you are looking for a farm dog or a jogging companion, this dog could be perfect. If you expect this dog to spend long hours alone with nothing to do, you're asking for trouble.
