you can't know what a mixed breed puppywill grow up to be like, but if it has border in it it will probably be very active. so you need to be able to provide several hours of exercise per day, including running every day.

 

for mixed breeds I recommned going to a shelter and gettingan adult. you already know their size, appearance, general exercise requirements, and temperament.

 

please don't buy from a pet store (puppy mill dogs) or doubtful breeder.

 

there are so many abandonned dogs, getting one from a shelter is preferable. If you want a puppy then go to a reputable breeder, who breed / raise healthy puppie as and socialise them properly.

Hmmm...

The above puppy looks a lot like an English sheep dog (collie) and I'll tell you something - they have enormous amounts of energy and a brain. Not only do they require exercise and rarely slow down, they need to be mentally stimulated.

They say if you cross a german sheppard with a collie it will go insane without that kind of care though I'm not talking that extreme.

 

Hope you have plenty of time and energy because they just don't stop!

it might be what is known as a "backyard" breeder, they have accedental litters or breed their own family pats for profit or to witness the "mircale of birth"...

if you get a puppy remember it is hard work, they can only hold their pee in for one hour per month of age (example, if she is 3 months old, she will hold it in for 3 hours max). At night they can sleep through most of it pretty quickly, but you usually have to get up at around 4 am at the latest, or nevertheless at least once in the middle of the night.

 

personally I wouldn't get a puppy. My dogs will always be adults from shelters. They deserve a second chance (or third, or fourth,...) and what you see is what you set, temperament / appearance wise. they require a lot less exercise and are usually house broken as we say to mean the dog is clean inside the house.

 

if you still wnat apuppy, please read Before and After Getting your Puppy by Dr Ian Dunbar, THE reference for first time puppy parents. free download:

thank you

 

i am wanting an active dog, but am a little concerned that a border collie will be too active. They are beautiful dogs tho.

 

Will keep that in mind about the puppies. I did have a puppy before - jack russell. Tiny thing. She was 14 when she died.. Looking to get another - its amazing how much you miss having a dog around!!!
