A workaholic in heart and soul, the Border Collie was specifically bred and used to herd livestock. And she does it with so much zeal!

But be warned – without sheep to herd, she’ll round up and assemble any living creature, including your kids.

The Border Collie is highly intelligent and loyal. There boisterous spirit and lovely coloring makes them quite popular, and as a result, there are many awesome cross-bred pups created by combining the best of the Border Collie with other loveable dog breeds.

    Border Collie/Blue Healer. Happiest smartest most loving dog I have ever had. Ball crazy. In water chasing sticks. Not a retriever, herds it near and drops it, waiting for it to move again.

      He or she sounds great, David!

    We have a 6 month old rescue BC mix. We were told she is Border Collie Beagle. Our vet agrees that is likely. She has lots of BC traits but definitely has the scent teacking skills of a Beagle. And some of the stubbornness! But she looks nothing like your example of a BC-Beagle cross…(Of course I think our Mia is a beauty!)
    However, your picture of a BC -Pit mix looks EXACTLY like a one yr old Pit mix I walk regularly. The owner who adopted him said she was told he was Pit-Hound mix. But I suspected Border Collie because he is a very sensitive dog, very gentle, not much of a barker, likes to stick close and follow my lead. He is a sweetheart and a complete ringer for the picture on your site!

      I have a collie who is pregnant and will have collie/border collie mixed pups, if you are still looking. I’m not a breeder, though. I am from Maine.

    Loved reading about the many Border Collie mixes but alas none were a match for my sweet girl and I’m dying to know lol. I want to post a photo of her but don’t know how here. So could you tell me how to find out what her other half is?

    1. Meg Marrs Avatar

      Hi Apryl – visual identification of breeds is basically always unreliable, even from vets! Your dog’s looks really don’t offer an accurate assessment of your dog’s genetic background. If you’re really curious about her breeds, I’d say get a dog DNA test! The photos we showed here are shared and reported by owners, so we can’t help you identify your dog, even if visual identification was an accurate method.
