Breed Bio: Border Collie


The Border Collie is a breed developed for their intelligence and obedience on the border between England anc Scotland for herding livestock, more specifcally sheep. The breed is incredibly energetic and athletic; great for agility work outside of their use in the working group. Ancestors include the Old Hemp and Winston Cap.

First recognized by the AKC in 1995, BC's come in a recognized seventeen different colors and seven different markings. They typically range from 25-45 pounds, and 19-21 inches tall, making them great dogs for both active city dwellers and families with larger reaches of land.

With a lifespan of up to 14 years, the breed is not for the lazy. They require daily physical and mental stimulation, or can become quite destructive. Considered the most intelligent breed, collies can be great pets for homes with children, keeping up with the rowdiest of the bunch and herding them much like the livestock they were bred to tend.
