"I would like to introduce my guardian Angel. She is an 8 year old Border Collie – Rottweiler mix. She is very timid and not aggressive at all. We adopted her when she was 2 years old. Her name is Angel. She has most characteristics of the Border Collie. She loves to run and play, she would be a great herding dog. She LOVES kids and people. She never barks indoors and only barks outdoors if she hears something strange. Her bark is a complete Rottweiler bark. The most unusual thing about her is how non-aggressive she is. Sometimes, it seems she is afraid of her own shadow. We feel she may have been mistreated at a young age. She has a keen sense for knowing when thunderstorms are coming. She will know they are coming HOURS before they actually hit. She weighs only about 31-32 pounds. She is a wonderful pet and we love her dearly."
The Border Rottie is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Border Collie and the Rottweiler. 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.
