About The Breed
The Border Collie is a hard worker and is eager to please. They require a lot of play and work to keep their mind occupied and stimulated. They excel at almost every canine sport. Agility, obedience, frisbee, herding, are all a breeze for this highly intelligent dog.
The Border has a double coat that can come in rough and smooth. Their double coat protects them from the elements. They come in different patterns such as solid, bicolored, tricolored, and merle. They are most often seen in black and white.
OriginThe Border Collie has a very interesting origin. They are the result of dogs left from the Ancient Roman occupation of Great Brittan, crossed with dogs that accompanied the Vikings during their invasions. What resulted is what is considered the worlds greatest herding dog.
