Border Collies are special little friends. I was heart broken when we lost ours last year. Skye is 9 months now and has softened the loss. Enjoy your new journey.

Congratulations! Scotch is very handsome and sounds like such a nice fellow. While he will not "replace" Lewie, he should fill up some of the empty
places with his own brand of companionship and fun. I am so happy for you.

Best wishes for you and Scotch (great name BTW). 

 

I have seen quite a few of the lighter-boned Aussies that look like Scotch.  If you had told me he was full BC, full Aussie or a mix of the two, I would have taken your word for it.  There is a huge overlap in phenotype of the 2 breeds.

 

As for the Aussie rescue group taking in what may be a BC, kudos to them for responding to a dog in need. Our rescue group focuses on BCs and BC mixes, but sometimes we have had a sheltie mix, or a chihuahua that someone couldn't leave in the pound, or a mini-Aussie/JRT mix (best guess - but hey, it was a tri). If the dog is in need and there is a free foster home, sometimes the 'other' dogs sneak into the system. Who cares? all these dogs need a good home.

Same for the border collie rescue I volunteer with as well. Gotta give all these breed rescues that step up when there's a dog of another type who needs help.
