This intelligent, energetic, beautiful dog breed has a history that stretches back around two thousand years. However, the Border Collie only came to be recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1995.
The German Shepherd Dog (GSD) has long had the world’s adoration and was recognized by the AKC in 1908. The dog originated in Germany in 1899 when Max von Stephanitz bought the canine at a dog show.
Some may look like the Border Collie, some like the German Shepherd, and others may combine features so well they don’t look like either parent.
Both parents are loyal, intelligent, playful, strong, energetic, and loving, with the average Shollie also having these traits.
As an intelligent breed, Shollies are easily one of the easiest dogs to train. They’re also eager to please, meaning training will be a breeze but be sure to train them how your specific dog prefers.
