Border Collie

The Border Collie is a large breed of dog. They do require a lot of exercise to stay out of trouble and also to stay in shape. These dogs do tend to put on weight so daily runs and long walks are a must. The Border Collie is a great family dog if socialized with children as a young pup.

This breed sheds throughout most of the year. You will need to vacuum daily due to the long shedding fur. The fur on the Border Collie is dense and long. It can be flat or somewhat curly. The colors range from cream, tan, black to a white color.

If you are looking for a puppy, you may wish to work very closely with a breeder or a rescue organization. If you are working with a breeder, make sure they belong to at least one national group. In fact, it would be great if they show you their membership certificate. When possible, before getting a puppy it is best to meet his mother. Study his mom for her personality traits, such as aggressiveness, shyness, activity etc. Chances are her puppies will take on similar traits. It is important that you tell your breeder or rescue group as much information as you can about your family and life style. Matched with the right family, you will find the Border Collie to be a real treat to get to know.
