The English Springer Spaniel and Collie are two of the most popular and best-loved breeds to own, so it makes sense that breeders have created a hybrid of the loveable pair. Just like their parents, the Sprollie is loving, loyal and always up for an adventure in the great outdoors.

In this thorough introduction to the Sprollie dog, you’ll discover that:

  • There’s a wide variation in appearance at this early stage in the hybrid’s history
  • The hybrid can be prone to joint and eye problems at some point in life
  • This dog needs at least an hour’s activity a day or they can become destructive
  • They can slot into households that include young children and other pets


Sprollie Breed Overview

Both English Springer Spaniels and Collies have long histories as working dogs in often demanding conditions, but have quickly segued into life as companion animals in the past century. 

That doesn’t mean they’ve become any less energetic in this time, however — that’s why Sprollie parents need to be happy with the idea of going on long walks every day, as well as keeping their pet’s big brains stimulated with games and puzzles.

If you’re more than happy to meet these requirements, you’ll find life with a Sprollie rewarding. This is because they’re generally obedient and sweet, although they retain an erratic streak that usually manages to be lovable rather than irritating.

Sprollie Breed History

For the past few decades, the trend for hybrid dogs has shown no signs of slowing down and it feels like every other day that there’s a new canine portmanteau popping up.

The exact origins of the Sprollie are a little hazy, but we can be pretty sure they emerged from the United Kingdom around the time that other hybrids began emerging from the 1990s onwards.

What we can speak more confidently on is the history of both parent breeds.

The English Springer Spaniel, for example, actually heralds from Spain — hence the name. However, they quickly found their way to the United Kingdom where a specific variation was bred to accompany hunters and scare (or ‘spring’) animals out of the undergrowth. They were famed as hard workers and good company at the end of a long day in the field.

At the turn of the 20th century, the movement to set standards for dog breeds began in earnest and the English Kennel Club did just this for the English Springer Spaniel in 1902. The American Kennel Club did the same in 1920.

After this point, they are more likely to be found in family homes rather than in a working environment. However, many have found roles as sniffer dogs within the military and police forces.

The Collie has similar European ancestry, as their distant relatives were thought to have been brought over to Britain by the Romans. In the centuries following this, these dogs were bred with local canines and became adept at herding sheep, particularly in the Highland region of Scotland.

The Collie was a fairly obscure dog until Queen Victoria took a fancy to them on visits to Balmoral Castle and requested some be brought down to England for breeding. This Royal seal of approval led to an explosion in popularity and they became regular competitors at dog shows in the latter half of the 19th century.

Two authors also helped spread the love for Collies, too. The breed features heavily in the books of Albert Payson Terhune, who also bred long-haired varieties of the dog. In addition, the most famous Collie of all time made their first appearance in a 1938 short story by Eric Knight. In the following decades, the heroic antics of Lassie would feature in countless films, TV shows and comic books.

Sprollie Breed Appearance

As with all hybrid breeds that haven’t been around all that long, the appearance of a Border Collie Springer Spaniel mix can differ wildly from one to the next — much depends on which side of the family tree is better at asserting its dominance.

At this early stage, it can be said that most Sprollies tend to have the floppy ears of an English Springer Spaniel, rather than the upright ones seen on a Collie. The typical coat colors (usually black, white or brown) and the feathered tail bear the influence of a Collie, however.

The Sprollie tends to be medium in size and muscular in build. This is usually covered in a coat that’s average in length and density. They have broad heads with alert expressions, tapering muzzles and a distinct stop. Their oval-shaped eyes are most commonly brown, while noses are black and brown.

Sprollie Breed Maintenance

When it comes to looking after a Sprollie, there’s one thing that you’re going to need to set aside a lot of time for and that’s exercise. These are dogs with boundless energy and need at least an hour’s activity a day — this can include walking, running, hiking, swimming or playing canine sports. Having a large backyard is also helpful in this regard.

However, this is only when they’re fully grown. A Sprollie puppy shouldn’t be over-exercised as this can damage their still-developing joints, and occasionally lead to developmental conditions, such as hip dysplasia.

The Sprollie isn’t as fussy when it comes to grooming. Their coat will need brushing several times a week and only very occasionally washing. Pet parents will also need to stay on top of brushing their teeth and wiping their ears to prevent infections. Nails might need to be clipped as well, but often, the amount of exercise a Sprollie does will wear them down naturally.



Sprollie Health Risks

Both English Springer Spaniels and Collies have health conditions which they’re predisposed to developing at some point or other in their lives. Some scientists may argue that widening the gene pool through crossbreeding helps eliminate that risk, but this theory isn’t wholly agreed upon.

As a result, some of the health issues that prospective Sprollie parents should be clued up on include:

  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Elbow Dysplasia
  • Eye conditions
  • Epilepsy

Elbow and Hip Dysplasia

Both parent breeds of the Sprollie are medium in size and love running around — unfortunately, dogs fitting this description often suffer from elbow or hip dysplasia. This is when either the elbow or hip joints fail to develop correctly, leading the ball and socket to become misaligned. 

This is often a hereditary illness and breeders should attempt to prevent puppies from being born with the disease by screening their animals for the condition. This method isn’t foolproof, but it’s a lot better than doing nothing — be sure to ask your breeder for evidence of this before taking a Sprollie home with you.

The most common symptoms of elbow or hip dysplasia are reduced mobility and evident pain. Once a vet has made a diagnosis, there are various treatment options available. This includes weight control and supplements for milder cases, and physiotherapy and surgery in more serious instances.

Eye conditions

It’s been noted that a Sprollie’s eyes can sometimes be afflicted by disease during their lifetimes. Collie Eye Anomaly is an example. As the name suggests, this mainly affects Collies and is a defect that’s present at birth. Luckily, this is not a deteriorating condition, so whatever vision your dog has at 10 to 12 weeks old is the same as it’ll be throughout life.

The symptoms range in severity and some dogs will barely be impacted. However, others might start bumping into objects, be fearful of new environments, have pale spots on their eyes or lose their menace reflex (the instinct to blink or turn their head away from an oncoming object).

Vets will be able to diagnose this problem from around the age of eight weeks old, but unfortunately, there’s no cure. Collies or Sprollies affected by the disease shouldn’t be bred further.

Retinal Dysplasia is another inherited condition associated with the two parent breeds. This is caused by an abnormal development of the retina, which can lead to impaired vision. Again, there are no effective treatments, so the only thing parents can do is try to maintain an affected dog’s quality of life.

Epilepsy

Both English Springer Spaniels and Collies are breeds that have higher rates of epilepsy and as the neurological condition is thought to have a genetic basis in many cases, this might also be true of the Sprollie, too.

The main symptom is seizures, which are often accompanied by shaking, incoordination, drooling and lack of bladder control. If a vet suspects that a dog has epilepsy, they will usually prescribe anticonvulsant medication. Pets can normally resume a normal life once they start these, although they will require regular veterinary monitoring.



Catching diseases early can make a huge difference when it comes to effective treatment — a wellness plan includes regular testing and examinations for this very purpose.




What to Feed a Sprollie

As an incredibly active dog, a Sprollie will have a voracious appetite and parents should be looking for recipes packed with protein, vegetables and vitamins to keep them fuelled up. Avoid starchy or filler ingredients as these won’t be doing your dog’s body any good.

It’s also important that parents pick a dog food that has been specifically designed for their pet’s age. Meals for puppies will contain the vitamins and minerals necessary for healthy growth — too much calcium at this age, for example, can sometimes lead to hip dysplasia developing in later life. The same principle applies to senior dogs, too.

Sprollie Temperament

There’s a reason why both English Springer Spaniels and Collies are such good working dogs when put to the test — they’re both intelligent and good at learning commands, especially when positive reinforcement is used.

A Springer Spaniel Border Collie mix will normally inherit these traits and are considered to be affectionate as well. That being said, they need an effective period of training and socialization at a young age, especially if you want to introduce them into a household that includes young children or other animals.

When unstimulated, a Sprollie can start being destructive or a little erratic in behavior. This can usually be averted with lots of exercise and plenty of toys to keep them occupied.

Brodie is the best dog I've ever had. His energy level is always on stand by. When younger he would have out hiked me if I would have let his trail blazing soul. Now we are both getting older we need to take things slower and in smaller quantities. I think he would trot on like an energizer bunny whenever I wonder if its time to rest his old pads!!! He can be just as affectionate to people as he is energetic. And Intelligent??? I swear my fur child has over a 2,000 word vocabulary and a memory to match since he seems to remember about every place we ever visited. Getting more excited than a 5 year old in a candy store when he tells from our route that we are going to one of his top special people spots. I thank God for bringing Brodie into my life, he helped me get through some dark areas of my life and feel if not for him, I may not be here today. I owe him my life, so then I feel it's only fitting I give him the best one.

We rescued Nala from a shelter after she was abandoned by her previous owners in a field (why they would do such a thing is beyond us). We now couldn't imagine life without her. She's playful, loves a cuddle, intelligent, caring and crafty as hell. If she's in the mood she takes to training like a duck to water however she can have her independent moments too. She's never reactive, gentle but has a great personality to match. Couldn't recommend Sprollies enough.

We got Mila as a rescue at 11 months. we have had her now 6 months and she is a real joy to have around and is a super happy dog. She is a destroyer of toys, and have not found one to outlast her chewing. In moments of boredom and we are not watching, she will destroy carpet, moulding, ANY wood, earbuds, Kobos's, outdoor deck...haha but it is becoming better with positive reinforcement. She only barks when someone new comes into the house or the bell rings. She had not been socialized by her previous owners as a puppy, and we are still working on this as she can be very anxious around other dogs BUT has improved GREATLY in our 6 month ownership. She now enjoys playtime with a select few others. We have also noticed how loyal she is and trys to protect us and the house cat, if she feels we are possibly being threatened by another. Great off leash dog, on leash can be a challenge due to her energy. Her eyes are on watch all around us. Beautiful dog, sheds quite a bit, so lots of brushing needed. As we live in a cold climate area of the world, our winters can get to many day's at a time of -30C, so we are working on indoor brain teaser games as well as enrolling her in a dog play kennel once a week. Beautiful breed, need active owner's and patience. You will be rewarded with a loyal, loving, and very happy companion. We love her to bits.

May has been the perfect dog in every way. So happy, fun loving, energetic,super intelligent, annoyingly so at times, you cant fool her. She loves walks on the beach and woodlands but not so keen to be bothered by other dogs, totally uninterested. She is great with kids but doesnt like to be roughed up, shes a very gentle soul. She herds up our cats if they start scratching at the carpets and only barks if i sneeze, weird. She cant exercise for long periods as she used to, she will do if i let her but she stiffens up later in the day but a good hours walk each day still leaves her with plenty of energy for playing in the house later. When young she would run the entire day no problem. Sprollies love the outdoors, they need exercise and mental stimulation very often. Shes been so easy to train, no problem at all.

A very high energy dog that so far hasn't abated with age. Still very alert and very bouncy. She's aloof with other dogs and non confrontational but she's happiest with people especially children. As a teenager she was difficult, tried to assert her authority and refused to obey orders though we didn't stop her training, she chose not to listen. She left her teenage stroppiness almost overnight and became the perfect dog. She knew so much, it had all been stored in her brain. Super intelligent, independent thinking without disobedience, just wants to please. Not food orientated, is happy just with praise and/or tennis ball. Always happy and eager to learn something new as often as possible. She doesn't have separation anxiety, she trusts my return. She has the intense collie state one minute and the joi de vivre and bounciness of the Springer spaniel in the next. She quarters a field like a spaniel and stalks and herds like a collie. She's a thinker and goofy at the same time. Always in a good mood and always always devoted to you. Good family dog loves everyone but has a special bond with one.Has an incredible memory. Good alert dog but too friendly with people to be guard dog. She is territorial on her property. She looks like a stocky border collie, black and white with short spaniel ears and feathering to her tail and feet. Never known a dog like her. They're hard work in the beginning but with friendship and patience they become the ultimate multi-faceted dog who will always be there for you through thick and thin. Their loyalty and intelligence takes your breath away.

My sprollie is a very sweet and loving dog. High energy during walks or training, very calm in the house. She looks like a small border collie (around 17 inch at her withers) with floppy ears. She sometimes shows some insecurity (gentle handling required!) and loves being around people. Definitely a dedicated cuddler ;)

Shortly after losing my beloved 15 year old border collie, Missy came to us from Romania at 7 months old, terrified and semi feral. It was evident that she had received very little human contact and what there was had not always been the best experience for her. With gentleness and patience she is now almost 3 years old and almost a different dog. She is friendly, loving and obedient (most of the time), however, she still needs to learn a few behaviour rules in respect of her human pack as opposed to the dog pack in which she spent her most formative months. She can be very overprotective and has to be watched when we have visitors or are out.

Millie, my pet Sprollie, has been the greatest joy of my life so far! I'm 26 and my dad is a dog breeder in Ireland, we have always had dogs growing up but I've never loved a dog like I love Millie. She is extremely sweet, affectionate, gentle and smart. She almost has a sensitivity for human feelings, she is the best company and comforts both myself and my parents all the time. She loves playing with toys and fetching them, helping my dad in the garden (following him while he mows the lawn!) helping him feed our chickens (again following him and keeping an eye, occasionally herding the chickens!) and most of all, she loves cuddling! She gives affection to almost everyone she meets, by giving the paw or licking you on the cheek if she really likes you. I have never known a more gentle, sweet soul. Millie was born on a farm to a springer pet and collie work dog, the farmer who sold her to us actually wanted her back days later as they said she would make a great show dog because of her markings. We refused of course. I love Millie so much and she is the best dog to ever come into my life. I will continue to love sprollies forever. I highly recommend sprollies for an affectionate, loyal companion for life.

He loves his humans and his yard but can be stubborn at times. He has lots of energy and needs exercise every day or he will get into mischief. He also loves to swim in a pool or lake which gives him the opportunity to burn off energy! His coat is black and white like a Border Collie with black freckles on his white mussel, face and legs, a real cutie!😀

I have had springers and setters all my life , my father used to breed springers. Buddy is an absolute gem of a dog , the collie-springer mix is great in everyway . He has endless energy for outdoor activities, and has a heart of gold , as others on here have mentioned he is unbelievable in tune with people emotions, he is literally a lovely fluffy black and white stress ball. He has the appearance of a slightly small setter apart from his markings( there is no setter in his mix but that is his exact body type ). I couldn't recommend this mix enough to any potential owners , one caveat is that he does require a good daily walk to be completely happy and chilled .

Im struggling a bit with my puppy. She is 4 months old. She is really sweet and affectionate one minute but then starts biting and nipping the next. Ive 2 small children and it really hurts them (and me) when she bites. I understand pups are teething but ive tried everything to try get her to stop biting. I have her on an hours beach walk each day and then play with her in the yard so i am trying my best to make sure her energy level is drained a bit. Ive gotten very frustrated with her also as shes all over the furniture and wont get off and she barks very loudly when i give out to her. I suppose i should take her to obedience classes.

Fantastic, Pippin is easily the best dog we've ever had as a family. She's highly energetic, seemingly never losing the will for adventure which works great for us. She's incredibly calm in the house, but is like a raving lunatic on walks, which she evidently enjoys based on her body language and behaviour. She's very calm and gentle with younger children, partly because of her growing up with all our younger cousins around her, and is beyond tolerant even if a baby pulls on her tail. Given the right training as a pup (we did all ours at home, no lessons), I think the sprollie is the ideal dog for almost anyone, asking as they are up for the challenge.
