Pure-bred Or Half Border Collie?

by Erik
(Ukiah)


I am trying to find out if my dog is pure-bred OZ Shep or Border Collie. What are key things to look for? I have seen pure-bred OZ Sheps with bobtail and long tail, mine has long tail. Thanks for your help.

Note from Anton: You can get a dog DNA test done that will tell you the breed. For example, check out the Wisdom Panel Dog DNA Kit.

Thanks Anton but on that link there is no option for a kit for Aus shep- just Aus Cattle dog.

Thanks Kathy

Thanks all for your comments, Yes I agree he's gorgeous and for me, not a breeder or shower, doesn't really matter if he's pure OZ or BC. I was just curious. Erik
