The Border Sheepdog is a mixed breed dog—a cross between the Border Collie and Shetland Sheepdog breeds. Energetic, intelligent, and playful, these pups inherited some of the best traits from both of their parents. Border Sheepdogs go by a few names, including Sheltie Border and Border Sheltie. If you like to bring this beautiful mixed breed home, you might be able to find them at shelters or breed specific rescues. Remember, it’s always better to adopt and not shop! These adorable pooches are best suited for homes with yards, as they have a lot of energy. They also fit in with families of all sizes. These pups have a tendency to be yappy. If you want an energetic “firecracker” dog who will keep you on your toes, alert you to any potential dangers, and love you unconditionally, the Border Sheepdog may be the right pooch for you!
