As noted above, the mix between the German Shepherd and the Border Collie is called a Shollie. These pooches can also grow quite big as well and tend to have very distinct physical appearances.
Despite their large size, shollies are playful family-friendly dogs that can be left around kids without any issues.
How Does a Shollie Look Like?
As with many crossbreed dogs, the look of the Shollie is derived directly from its purebred parents. These pooches come in a wide variety of coat colors including black, golden, brown, and white.
The coat is often a mix of two colors though – one dominating the entire body and the other forming small accent spots. The Shollie’s coat is dense and the pooch is considered a heavy shedder.
Shollies also have a large body, characterized by strong, well built, lean muscles. These canines have cute floppy ears too and a long muzzle.
How Big Will a German Shepherd Collie Mix Get?
Most Shollies would typically inherit the physical attributes of the German shepherd parent. As a result, the pooches are very big.
On average, a Shollie will measure between 21 and 27 inches in height. The dog can also weigh somewhere between 70 and 80 pounds when fully grown.
You will notice however that it’s very easy to mistake a Shollie for a purebred German Shepherd, especially because of its large, muscular, and imposing size.
