Is the Border Collie / Miniature American Shepherd 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 pairing between a Border Collie and a Miniature American Shepherd hasn't been all that common in that past. However, because of the explosive rise in the popularity of the Miniature American Shepherd, you may encounter this mix in shelters going forward.

Appearance / health:
The Miniature American Shepherd was originally developed to be a miniature Australian Shepherd. As a result, when you cross the Border Collie with this breed, you can expect a smallish collie-type sheepdog.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, with the Border Collie / Miniature American Shepherd Mix you are getting a double dose of the herding dog intelligence, energy, and sensitivity. Properly socialized, trained with positive rewards, and given something interesting to do, this mix could be a top flight family dog as well as a great farm animal.
