The Border Collie originated from Northumberland, on the very border of England and Scotland, and was developed for herding livestock, especially sheep. The name “Border Collie” came from the fact that the breed was developed somewhere on the Anglo-Scottish border where the Scottish Highland "colley" sheep was prevalent. The first time the term "Border Collie" was used was in 1915 by the Secretary of the International Sheep Dog Society. It was used in order to register them as a separate breed along with other Collies that were already registered.
Border Collies are known to be descendants of the Old Hemp, a tri-colour dog that was bred by a man called Adam Telfer. This dog was smart, quiet, and used by many shepherds as he was known as the best herding dog around. These beautiful dogs became popular at the end of the 19th century when they were presented at the first official sheepdog trial in Bala, Wales.
Border Collie character
Intelligent, attentive and a hard worker - what's not to love? The Border Collie is a big hit with many families. They make fantastic guard dogs and love to protect those who surround them, giving off great energy. These dogs do need exercise, so a big garden or field is perfect for them to let off some steam! They aren’t really "house-dogs" and will need a lot of space.
Border Collies should be trained very early on, while they are still puppies. In fact, it is easier to train dogs when their brain is still developing. As obedient dogs, Border Collies are very enthusiastic while working with people and are happy to learn new things.
Border Collie physical characteristics
The Border Collie is medium-sized, dog breed with an athletic appearance. Their bodies are longer than their low set tails. Some Border Collies have two different coloured eyes while their coat comes in two varieties - rough or smooth. It also comes in just about any colour and pattern, including bicolour, tricolour and merle.
This breed can stand between 18 to 22 inches at the shoulder and weigh between 30 to 45 pounds. They typically live from 10 to 17 years old.
