Dog of the Day: Tito the Black German Shepherd/Border Collie

Ran into this pup down on Polk Street, but if I remember right (I’m doing this from memory, not from notes), he and his mom were actually visiting from Florida. And mom was a vet, so you know he’s well-treated. He’s barely more than a puppy, about 1.5 years old.

Edit: Oops! I just heard from his mom, below… the woman in the picture was indeed a vet from Florida, but Tito is from San Francisco. Which means I might just be lucky enough to run into him again. Yay!

Edit x2: Boy I suck. The woman in the picture is Tito’s mom. The vet from Florida is present, but not actually in any pictures. And Tito is still adorable.

German shepherd and border collie. I bet he’s smart as a whip. And fast.

He did a fair bit of clowning around at the table too.

    Hey Adam! I somehow just happen to run accross your blog finally. I am Tito’s mom. I am a resident of SF and my best friend was visiting from FL. She is the vet. He is still very well-treated 🙂

    It’s funny because I had checked your blog a few times and then forgot about it. I was looking at images of GSD/border collie on google and saw the pic of me and Tito and followed the link and here we are!

    Thanks for posting Tito as the Dog of the Day!

    I have a female GSD/Border Collie and they look like twinsies. We are up in Grass Valley but I too was looking at other pups on the web. Glad I saw this. They are such great dogs!

      They totally are. Super smart, and not as high-strung as a pure border collie can be.

      Any pictures of your pup on the web? Feel free to leave some links in a comment, if so!

    Tito is a lovely dog! I have a Shepherd Collie Lab cross that is black and looked so much like Tito when she was young. She is the best dog I ever had! These are great cross breeds. Thanks for sharing.
