"Ernie was adopted at a Las Vegas animal shelter when he was a few months old. We were not sure what breed he was at the time. As he grew older I knew he had Afghan in him and later determined he had Collie after viewing other Afollies. He was an incredibly bright dog, very loyal, very kind, never barked unless ask him to do so. I only needed to tell him one time not to do something and he never did it again. Very sweet to all people, children, other dogs, rabbits, etc.. He was a pet therapy dog for a little while visiting hospitals. He loved to run with me and was a very fast, agile dog. He was by far the best dog I ever owned. He lived to the age of 14.5 years and I cherish every minute with him."
The Afollie is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Afghan Hound and the Collie. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
