Traits and Characteristics
Combining the speed and grace of the Collie with the courage and loyalty of the German Shepherd Dog, the Shollie is an intelligent mix that is growing in popularity.

A smart dog that wants to learn, Shollies do best with a devoted pet parent who will embrace their high level of attention and exercise needs. Understanding the qualities that comprise both the Collie and German Shepherd Dog will help prepare new Shollie parents in getting to know this charming, enthusiastic mixed-breed.
