While a group of one hundred Border Collies will probably look as if they belong to the same breed, they will not have a uniform appearance. Since a "good" dog can be judged only by its herding performance, there is no "breed standard" of appearance to which Border Collies should conform. In general, they are of medium size (25-55 pounds), with coats that may be smooth, medium, or rough. Colors are black, black with tan, and, less common, reddish-brown, all usually with white markings. Predominantly white Border Collies and merles, though unusual, also occasionally appear.

Highly intelligent and trainable, the Border Collie is a very agile dog with plenty of stamina and determination. This is a dog that is eager to please and very quick to learn, which makes him a pleasure to train. He is one of the most trainable of all breeds. This is a well balanced dog with a good temperament and a good nature. The Border Collie is loyal and dedicated, and is both faithful and affectionate to his family. However, despite all of these traits, the Border Collie is not a dog that will be suites to all owners, as he needs a high level of mental and physical stimulation (running, biking, fetching, walking) and will not fare well without this.

The Border Collie may get on okay with older, more considerate children, but is probably not the best choice for those looking for a companion for their child or for those with smaller children. These dogs can be wary around strangers, but can get on okay with other pets. However, their strong herding instincts means that they may try and herd everything, from children and family members to pets and just about anything else. In some cases, the high energy levels of the Border Collie can make it a little hyperactive, but with the right level of attention, exercise, and mental stimulation this is a problem that can be relieved.

The Border Collie was developed on the borders of England and Scotland in the UK, hence its name. Bred for herding, this dog became hugely popular because of its high intelligence and high level of stamina - in fact, even today this breed is a favorite when it comes to working dogs on farms etc. The Border Collie was registered with the AKC in 1995.
The life expectancy of the Border Collie is around 13-15 years. There are a number of health issues and problems that are linked to this breed, and this includes deafness, seizures, allergies, epilepsy, cataracts, OCD, PRA, and HD. You should ensure that the parents of the Border Collie puppy have OFA and CERF certificates.
