Is the Border Collie / New Zealand Huntaway 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 New Zealand Huntaway isn't all that common, but you may occasionally encounter this mix in a rescue in New Zealand, if nowhere else, especially since Border Collies have become popular companion animals there.

Appearance / health:
A true New Zealand Huntaway is bred for its working quality, not a standard look, so its appearance can be all over the map even before you mix in the Border Collie's contribution. You can expect a good-sized and energetic animal.

Behavior / temperament:
The New Zealand Huntaway undoubtedly has some Border Collie in its heritage to enhance its intelligence and its desire to herd its flock. However, modern Border Collies can be companion or show animals, as well as serious herding dogs, and some reports state that this mix will only produce a livestock herder of "average" ability.
