A wide variety of colors!
The Border Collie can have several different coat colors! They have one of the largest ranges for a breed standard. All coats colors are beautiful, but here are a few!
|Black & White||Blue Merle Tricolor||Brown & White|
One of the smartest breeds.
An amazingly gifted dog is an under-statement! These pups are excellent with training and understand more than the regular dog. They require a lot of mental stimulation to keep them occupied. Some might say they are “workaholics!”

Great herding dogs!
Border Collies were meant to be working dogs, especially herding. They are incredible athletes and need to be exercised daily. These pups have a high energy level and are great in agility also!

Recognized as a breed at the end of the 20th century!
It wasn’t until 1995 that the Border Collie earned it’s breed title. They were a little late to the party ranking as the 139th breed! They definitely have gained more popularity over the years than some other breeds. It is no surprise that you can spot them instantly!
