|Ria is a Lab/Border Collie.
Her mom was Pure Lab(and super tiny too!):
Ria and her Mama, Maya
For recent pics of Ria, you can go on her profile page. Her dad was Border Collie mix - I think he was crossed with Rottweiler, as he had the appearance and markings, with the Border fur, ears and temperament. It was a litter of eleven puppies! Accidental litter, no selling, they just wanted to find them good homes.
You can see the Border Collie and the Lab in Ria quite easily now that she's older. She's dainty and lean like the Border, with tiny paws, a narrower face, the ears, and she has the 'stare' of the herder. She has the love of food and water from the Lab, and her body and tail are all Lab. She's just all around a sweetheart. Her Mama was EXTREMELY ball driven - which Ria is as well, and her Sire was very very laid-back and sweet.
We ended up with a realllyyyy smart puppy, who LIVES for her ball/frisbee, will run herself into the ground if you let her, has great herding instincts(I'm thinking about taking some classes with her later just for the fun of it), with energy like you couldn't believe, and a great off switch. She's overall got a fantastic temperament and we're glad we went with the puppy we did. They had a chocolate with blue eyes there, three yellow Lab looking pups, and the rest were variations of black with either white markings or brown markings. The boys had the brown markings, the girls had the white markings.
