Sasha the Shollie (German Shepherd / Collie mix) at 3 year old—"Sasha was born in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada but currently lives in Toronto. She is a gentle giant who loves to play, work, and make her parents proud. Her favourite things are playing with the ball and going to the cottage! What a fantastic mix."

Description

The Shollie is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the German Shepherd 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.

Ya she has a very bad habit of barking at nothing but we've been working on that, that's not going to well. Ever since I got sage I knew she was speicel that she was the dog for me.
