Does anyone know anything about golden retriever/ shetland sheepdog mixes? I found a golden sheltie at a local shelter that I am very interested in meeting, and I was just wondering if anyone can tell me anything about the personalities. Obviously, with a hybrid dog there is no way of knowing exactly how much golden and how much sheltie it will be, but I was just wondering in general. Do they usually have a pretty long life expectancy as mutts? Also, are they good with other animals and children? My husband and I currently do not have any kids, but we will be looking at having a baby in the next 2-3 years or so and it's a must that the dog we pick now be a good dog for kids. Also, how big do these dogs normally get? The one I am looking at is currently around 7 months (the shelter doesn't know for sure) and is about 25, which I think is on the lower end for golden shelties.
Thanks in advance!
