Pure-bred Or Half Border Collie?

by Erik

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

Cross-breed Aussie & Border Collie
by: Clark Fork River Ranch

Your beautiful dog looks like a fine cross between a tri-color Australian Shepherd and a Border Collie. We just had our pure border collie bred to our Australian Shepherd male (AKC eligible) and she had a fine litter of six. We have 2 nine week old puppies left, one boy & one girl. They look more Aussie than collie, but the other 4 looked more Border Collie. This is a loving, smart & agile cross-breed.
