The McNab is a breed developed by Alexander McNab in the latter part of the 19th Century in Medocino California. He bred Border Collies he brought with him from Scotland with the herding dogs brought to California by Basque herders to create a hardy breed for herding sheep and cattle on his ranch. It became a popular dog among ranchers and herders in Northern California with its reputation spreading later in the 20th Century. Please do not call these wonderful dogs "curs" or "black mouth curs". They are a specialized but oh so lovable working dog with a name, the McNab.
