The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The pairing between a Border Collie and a Maremma Sheepdog isn't all that common, but you may occasionally encounter this mix in a rescue. Because of the physicality and size of the sheepdog involved, the Border Collie / Maremma Sheepdog Mix is unlikely to be right for most situations.

Appearance / health:
While all mixed-breed dogs can vary in appearance, you need to be prepared for an animal that could end up being large or even huge.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the Border Collie / Maremma Sheepdog Mix can present some challenges. Thanks to the ancient Maremma instincts, you need to be able to socialize the animal with firmness to establish yourself as the alpha. However, you must also respect the sensitive side of the Border Collie. Unless you're an advanced dog psychologist, you may feel like you're walking on eggshells with some individuals.
