"This is our dog Phoenix at 2 years old. He is a Border Collie/Basset Hound. This is his, you know I'm going to get my way, look. Most of his time is spent laying next to you and just wanting to be pet all day long. He looks like a Border Collie, but acts like a Basset Hound."
The Border Basset is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Border Collie and the Basset Hound. 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.
