Is the Collie (Rough) / Golden Retriever Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Gollie

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 smooth Gollie is a cross between the Collie and the Golden Retriever, although subsequent generations may have different proportions in the mix. While it's an uncommon mix, you may occasionally encounter it at a rescue. While both parents breeds are intelligent and energetic animals who enjoy the outdoors, be aware of the possible differences in temperament, because you never know whether the Collie or the Golden personality will win out.

Appearance / health:
All mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, but the Gollie tends to be a large, energetic, and attractive animal.

Behavior / temperament:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, but some owners have reported that their Gollies seem to be aware of their complex heritage, with some individuals being happy to swim in the water or retrieve yet also occasionally engaging in herding behaviors like trying to nudge their people together.
