About the Borador
The Borador is a hybrid dog that is made up of a combination of two different purebreeds. It's a cross between the Border Collie and the Labrador Retriever. We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Borador is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.

The appearance of the Borador varies from the long coat of the Collie to the short hair of the Labrador. The coat is usually black with white patches ranging anywhere from the ring around the neck to the paws. Some have diamond patches on the chest. The body often resembles the Collie but with the coloring of the Labrador resulting in a retriever looking breed.
The Borador has a well balanced temperament and cares for family. It is intelligent and quick to learn new commands. They are ready to please and enjoy following orders. This breed is very active and enjoys people and other dogs. They take to new comers quickly.
The Borador is a healthy, active breed that requires plenty of exercise to keep its weight under control.
The Borador is easy to maintain. It needs semi-frequent grooming because its long coat can knot and it is a heavy shedder.
The Borador enjoys the outdoors and may do best in a rural setting. It is a highly active breed and may not do well in confined areas.
