Prized for his intelligence, herding instinct and working ability, the Border Collie was developed more than a century ago in Britain. An intense and tractable worker, the Border Collie is a highly energetic breed that thrives with vigorous exercise, a job and space to run. The Border Collie is an affectionate family dog that does best with mature children due to his tendency to herd people. His coat sheds seasonally and requires regular brushing.
