Thread: Wanted Lab X Boarder-collie

  1. #1

    Default Wanted Lab X Boarder-collie

    Hey

    Im just wondering if anyone knows of someone in Vic who breeds lab x boardercollies on a regular basis............after loosing my boy on black saturday im determined to get the same breed as he was just a sweet heart! However i am unable to get a puppy until around Oct (once the house is re-built and i move back) and im struggling to find a breeder..............every now and then there are a couple in the trading post but not often

    Any help would be great, im after a boy puppy................if you know anyone who may be able to help me out in a few months it would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks so much

    I don't live in Vic but just wanted to say that it's unlikely another Lab x BC will be the same as your previous one. Cross breeds have unique temperaments and personalities. You may find yourself being disappointed as the dog could have more of one breed in it than the other.

    Just to add, if you really like one part of the breed, there are a lot of puppies which are rescued after being dumped so you could try adopting one of those. A good website is www.petrescue.com.au - you may find exactly what you're looking for.

    Like Molli said
    If you like borders or border X check out http://www.sophies-choice.com/banjoschoices.html
    They have a lot of dogs that need homes and they update on a regular basis
    Good luck!

    Breeding, Showing, Training and general crazy making!!!
    If you seek understanding listen to the music, not the song.

    Spuddy - Molli and Ash have given you great advice! I can imagine it would be so hard to lose a dog and can completely understand your yearning for one of the same crossbreed!

    Gee! Wouldn't it be nice if all members of this forum could offer useful advice and a bit of understanding!

    Yep i sure as hell have "understanding" for the welfare of dogs & not supporting a BYB is part of my compassion for dogs in general.

    & i also understand how bloody inhumane & cruel it is to hit / abuse / neglect & abandon dogs as some owners do. I also understand how bloody inhumane & cruel it is to use dogs only for monetary gain such as byb's & puppy farmers do

    I think this owner though has/had such an emotional attatchment to her dog who just happened to be that cross that they now feel that only that type of dog could fulfill the whole and hurt thats been left from losing her beloved dog.
    Its not that she's out supporting BYB,PuppyFarmers etc etc..... its emotional for them,not malice.

    well im very shocked to read some of thoes responses!! For starters i dont even know what BYB is so if someone could explain that....?? also supporting pupper farmers??? i dont know what that is.......!!! but if its anything to do with farms......i dont live on one and i bought my previous dog from a friend whos lab accidently got pregnant. So i have no idea what anyone is really on about!

    Also I like lab x boardercollies, i have seen and spent time with quite a few and they are a lovely breed!!!!! I didnt say anything about getting the exact same dog with the exact same personality.......clearly that is not possible! People who like labs generally will get another lab because they like that breed......this is the same thing and i think most ppl are reading into it too much!

    For thoes who understand me........thank-you
