Is the Collie / Shetland Sheepdog Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Cosheltie

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 Cosheltie is a cross between a Collie and a pure Shetland Shepherd, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, this mix of two close breeds will result in a dog that you will be able to identify as some sort of Collie mix.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, the reality is that the Cosheltie is the result of pairing of two breeds with very similar skill sets and urges. This dog is likely to be intelligent, a bit sensitive, and sometimes eager to "herd" its family or the family pets together.
