Hello,

I recently got my dog Odin. He is 3.5 months old. The person who sold me the dog was selling him as a BC. I saw the pics of his mom who appears to be a BC but not his dad. However, as I was investigating through I saw that he appears to be very alike to a McNab so i would like to hear out your opinion.

PS. We love Odin independently, I am just curious of his breed.

Did the person selling him not give you any registration paperwork? The odds of him being a Border Collie or Border Collie mix are statistically much higher than the odds of him being a McNab. However, you can contact the McNab Shepherd Registry if you want. McNab Shepherd Registry – Preservation of The McNab Dog

Well, I live in Panam City, Panama. It is a third world country so such records are not held in general unless you buy the puppy from an actual dog farm or a company etc. I was just hoping to get some feedback from y'all based on his general look. As you can see, the mother appears to be a solid border collie but I do not have the info of the dad. The seller claims Odin is BC but the ears and the fur confuses me. :)

But once again, we love him to death. We are just wondering what breed he is.

Ah. Border Collies can have short fur and erect ears. They can also come in a more colors than black and white. Most people who use and breed working and/or sport Border Collies care more about working ability than appearance, so there can be a wide variety of "looks", as opposed to people breeding for the show ring, where the type is more uniform and consistent.

A friend of mine has a short-haired, erect-eared, black and white Border Collie, as well as a long-haired, tipped-eared, red tricolor Border Collie.
