Is the Border Collie / Chow Chow 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 Chow-Chow / Border Collie mix is a cross between a pure Border Collie and a pure Chow-Chow, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. While the mix is not common, you may occasionally encounter it in a rescue. Considering the very different personalities of the parent breeds, you would be wise to have previous experience with training and socializing large dogs, and you should know a bit about the special personality challenges offered by each breed. This mix is a poor choice for people who lack time, space, and dog smarts.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance depending on which breed's traits dominate, this mix frequently resembles a fluffier and/or more powerful than usual Border Collie.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, owners of this mix need to be prepared for almost anything. The Border Collie may be somewhat dependent and clingy, with a strong desire to herd the family together and be active with you for a large part of the day. The Chow-Chow is a dog that needs to be properly socialized to avoid becoming overly aggressive, especially with strangers but potentially with children. Respect this mix as an individual, and tailor the training to the personality that emerges rather than making assumptions.
