What Does a Pit Bull and Border Collie Mix Look Like?

Mixed breed dogs often look like a combination of their parents, with some characteristics coming from each breed, according to HowStuffWorks. Puppies with a pit bull and a collie for parents are likely to be large in size with personality traits coming from both parents.

It is hard to predict which parent's traits are more predominant before the puppy grows up, especially because pit bulls and collies, aside from their similar size, can be very different dogs in temperament. A pit bull and collie mix might be long haired or short haired, with a combination of stocky pit bull body traits and slimmer, sleeker collie body traits.
