Border Collie

Side elevation illustrations of a Border Collie standing and sitting

The Border Collie, also called the Scottish Sheepdog, is a medium-sized energetic herding dog. The Border Collie, hailing from the Scottish borders and the United Kingdom, was originally bred to be intelligent and obedient as a working dog for herding livestock. Nowadays, the Border Collie is frequently regarded as the most intelligent of domestic dog breeds and succeeds as a work dog, show dog, or sport dog. Due to the Border Collie’s intelligence and drive, this breed requires a dedicated owner to provide their pet with a job to perform in order to ensure the Border Collie’s happiness and satisfaction.
