Origin and characteristics

The Sprollie a cross between two different breeds -the English Springer Spaniel and the Collie or Border Collie. Sprollies have probably existed for decades in rural areas, where farm dogs were allowed to mate freely. Currently, with the rise of the craze for hybrids over the past 10 years, they have been bred and sold purposely. Sprollie puppies are adorable, and it’s one of the reasons this breed is so popular

Both of the parent breeds are known for being active and intelligent. Springers tend to be cheerful, fun-loving and bouncy. Border Collies are typically intense, with a strong desire to herd. With a hybrid such as the Sprollie, it’s safe to say that no matter which breed’s temperament is dominant, this dog will need lots of daily exercise.

A Sprollie who has been raised with or socialized to children can be a great companion for families whose children are at least 6 years old. At that age, most children should be capable of understanding how to interact appropriately and safely with a dog.

Sprollies need early training and socialization. Exercise needs for healthy Sprollies can usually be met by a couple of long daily walks or playtime. The typical Sprollie is highly energetic. They are likely to maintain their energetic lifestyle well into adulthood, so they need regular exercise to keep them fit and healthy.

Sprollies tend to be bright and affectionate dogs. They may love everyone in the family or choose a single person as his favourite. The Sprollie can get along well with other dogs and cats, especially if he is raised with them.

Coat, Shedding, Grooming

Sprollies have double coats. They have a soft and dense coat below their top coat, which is usually smooth, short or medium-length with a sparse to bushy texture.

Their coats are easier to maintain than some other dogs’. Their coat needs thorough brushing twice- three times a week to help them shiny and prevent / remove mats and tangles. More frequent brushing recommended during Spring and Autumn.

Areas behind the ears or where the legs meet the body require special attention, because that’s where mats develop easily.

How to manage shedding?

Sprollies typically shed. Regular brushing helps to keep fur off the floor, furniture and clothing.
Bathe a Sprollie as needed. That might be weekly (if he spends a lot of time on your bed or other furniture), monthly or somewhere in between.
Many Sprollies love to play in water. It’s essential to rinse them (to help remove chlorine, salt or debris) and dry them thoroughly afterwards.
