My pup, Delilah, is a Border Collie/Pyrenees hybrid. Her parents work on the same sheep ranch. I was told she was the 'runt' of the litter. At eight weeks, she was 3 pounds, while her sibs were 5 pounds. She was a white dog with cream mask and spots and blue eyes. Well, it didn't take long before I realized that Delilah was no runt. She simply took after her father's family, the Border Collie! She is turning one year old now, and looks like a white Border Collie with very red mask and spots, green eyes, and a tannish-pink nose. She weighs 32 pounds and is 21" at the withers. Has anyone else experienced this type of hybrid, and can anyone tell me why she got most of the recessive genes? I love her and would not trade her for anything! I actually wanted a Border Collie but could not afford one. It looks like I pretty much got one and paid a fraction of Border Collie prices around here.
