    Collie mix, maybe some kelpie or Welsh sheepdog in there.

    Yes we brought him as advertised as a Welsh Collie. A lot of people say he have German Shepherd in him. He have the web feet of the Welsh Collie and when playing over the field with a ball he do the out run and lay down waiting for the ball to be thrown. He only have one speed and that’s a hundred miles a hour. Lol E3FB316A-A266-4D2C-9F4E-3988A0C42C60.jpeg

    It was the colouring that made me think GSD.

    I would say Welsh collie x GSD maybe? Doesn't look like a full Welsh collie.

    Yes I think that’s why a lot of people think it.

    He is a tri colour, medium coated.

    A lot of people think a Collie should only be black and white.

    I had a Welsh collie as a family dog so I know they come in tri-colour. It was more the shape of the black colour on his back that made me think GSD.

    Border collies can also be merle or 'red', but I think Welsh collies are usually red colouring.

    His sister on this photo was sold to a farmer to train as a sheep dog, she was the one that I had fell in love with. Hie other brother and sister went as a pair a few minutes before we arrived. 2297B67B-3EE7-4B94-B9E5-3ECAEBE40D7C.jpeg

    The sister is pretty, but I think your boy has so much character - he's gorgeous!

    Welsh collies don't have a standard 'look' and they do vary quite considerably.

    Not only that, I'd say he's saddle patterned & his tan points are actually brindle.

    Lovely looking dog whatever he is, but I'm a sucker for collie/shepherd types!
