The Border Collie is a breed of working and herding dog that was developed in the Anglo-Scottish border region. The breed being developed on the border between England and Scotland is thought to be the origin of the breeds name - the 'Border' Collie! Likewise, the term 'Collie' is thought to have been derived from the Celtic word for 'useful.' The breed was originally developed to be capable of herding livestock, especially sheep, and to be highly intelligent and obedient. The Border Collie is a descends from the Landrace collies that originate from the British Isles. The Border Collie has a double coat, soft dark eyes, a well-defined stop and a athletically built body. The breeds double coat can come in two texture variations: smooth and rough. The rough coat variation is of a medium to long length and has feathering on the dog's legs, chest and belly. The smooth coat variation is short all over and has minimal feathering. The breed will most commonly have a black coat with white patches on its face, neck, feet, legs and tail. However it is not uncommon to find Border Collies with bicolored, tricolored, merle or solid coat colorations.

While they may drive you nuts when they're bored, it's amazing to watch them work. Whether your Border Collie's "job" is to tend livestock, chase the rabbits and birds from your garden, or just be a loving companion, you'll find that your Border Collie will do anything for the love and affection with which you pay them.
