    Hi all.
    I lost my best friend (a beautiful Border Collie) 2½ years ago. And I am now just about ready to consider moving on and getting another dog.
    I am very interested in an Australian Shepherd Border Collie mix, however I need to do a lot more due-diligence before I make any sort of decision...
    Can anyone help me with advice on any reputable breeders, or indeed owners who would be able to spare a little time chatting to, or meeting with, me?
    Many thanks in advance.
    David

    I’m just not sure why you would want a cross??

    Both great breeds if you’re prepared for the ‘herding dog’ personality.

    There are a lot of health checks (for inherited faults/diseases) for both breeds, and this is where your research should start.

    I dont think there are specific breeders for this cross, and with Aussies pretty low on the KC registrations list you'd be hard pressed to find any.

    Both breeds can be pretty gobby, neurotic, high drive etc so it's much of a muchness really.
