Is the Border Terrier / Collie (Smooth) Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Border Terrier / Smooth Collie Mix

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 Terrier / Collie (Smooth) Mix is a cross between a pure Border Terrier and a pure Smooth Collie, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix.

This isn't a common mix, but you may occasionally encounter it in a rescue.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog. In this case, the appearance of your pet could be very different depending on whether the Terrier or the Collie traits dominate.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, you know going in with this mix that you're almost certainly getting a high energy dog that demands to be trained using lots of positive reinforcement. Don't let this active animal get bored, or you could have real problems.
