That's really sweet, but there's something you need to understand about mixes: they're unpredictable. If you look at my sig, you'll see a large German Shepherd mix. I ran into the woman who owned his mother after I adopted him. She knew what had happened to the others in his litter. He was half GSD, half Golden Retriever. Muggsy was primarily GSD in temperament, though with a beautiful natural retrieve and a friendliness to strangers that would be unseemly in a GSD. Others in his litter were far more GR, far more GSD and one was basketcase fear biter.I thought that also but since he's only 18 pounds I thought he is too small to be boarder collie....actually, I volunteer at a shelter and this dog was my favorite i made sure to visit him everyday! but i am in college and my apartment doesn't allow dogs so in the middle of convincing my parents to watch him until I was done he got adopted!! I was heartbroken and still am! I check the website every day in hope hell come back so I can go get him. But in the mean time I wanted to try and find out what kind of dog he is so that maybe in the future I can adopt the same mix because he was so wonderful!
