The Borador is a mixed breed dog–a cross between the Border Collie and Labrador Retriever dog breeds. Outgoing, curious, and energetic, these pups inherited some of the best qualities from both of their parents. Boradors go by several names, including Border Collie Lab and Border Lab. Despite their unfortunate status as a designer breed, you can find these mixed-breed dogs in shelters and breed-specific rescues, so remember to adopt! Don’t shop! These cute and energetic pups make excellent companions for active owners, and they can thrive in any space. Still, these medium- to large-sized dogs can grow bored easily and need space, so they tend to do best in homes with yards and lots of activity. If you want a loyal, affectionate, mid-sized dog who thinks they’re a lap dog, the Borador might be the right pup for you.
