Is the Border Collie / Shetland Sheepdog Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Border Sheepdog

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 Sheepdog is a cross between a pure Border Collie and a pure Shetland Sheepdog, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. As both parent breeds are already fine livestock animals, the mix is not really common. But you may encounter it in a shelter.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, the Border Sheepdog is the result of two breeds that are already fairly close in appearance. Expect a furry Collie-type animal.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, the Border Sheepdog is almost certainly going to demand a lot of attention. This intelligent, sensitive, and active mix needs something fun and interesting to do with an owner who can spend time with the pet. A neglected Border Sheepdog will become destructive and unhappy.
