Overview
Originating during the 19th century, the Border Collie was so named due to their home of development on the border of Scotland England. This breed was prized for their outstanding herding abilities of any type of livestock. Today the Border Collie is a popular farm worker, family companion, and talented show dog.
Character
The Border Collie is medium-sized, exceptionally athletic, and possesses great endurance. This breeds obsession is their livestock work. They are high energy, confident, and determined. They are light on their feet, have a flowing movement, and are extremely versatile.
Temperament
This breed is intelligent, responsive, and devoted to their master and work. The Border Collie is extremely sensitive and thrives on human interaction. They are not recommended for the novice, sedentary or apathetic dog owner or for a home with a two-career family. They do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time and will suffer separation anxiety or become destructive. Border Collies do best in a home with older considerate children. They typically get along with dogs they have been raised with but should not be in a home with cats or other small household pets. This breeds inherent work ethic will lead them to attempt to herd anything and everything that moves.
Care
The Border Collie requires weekly brushing. Special attention should be given to the coat during shedding. Bathing or dry shampooing should only be done when necessary. This breed is prone to PRA, hip dysplasia, epilepsy, deafness, Collie Eye Anomaly, and allergies to fleas.
Coat
The Border Collie comes in two coat varieties: rough or smooth. Both varieties are double coat and weather resistant and are close fitting and thick. The outer coat is either wavy or straight and coarse in texture. The under coat is dense, short, and soft. The rough coat variety has fur of medium length. The chest, forelegs, underside, and haunches are feathered. The coat on the face, front of legs, ears, and feet is smooth and short. The smooth variety has fur of short length over the entire body and there may be slight feathering on the chest, ruff, haunches, and forelegs. The color of the coat comes in all colors or combination of colors and markings. They may be solid, merle, sable, bi-color, or tri-color. Border Collies are average shedders.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are recommended. The Border Collie is easily trained and does best with praise, consistency, fairness, respect, and firmness. Due to their extremely sensitive nature this breed must never be treated in a harsh or heavy-handed manner. They are exceedingly talented in herding, police work, competitive obedience, search and rescue, Frisbee trials, and Flyball. Border Collies are also used successfully as therapy dogs and guide dogs for the blind.
Activity
The Border Collie has an inordinate amount of energy and requires more than physical exercise. They thrive on work, play, mental stimulation, and close contact with their owner and family. They are not recommended for apartment or city dwelling. They do best on a working farm or in a rural secluded setting where they are able to romp, run, and roam freely and safely.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Border Collie puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Im looking to buy a almost all white boarder collie, the mother is deaf should I buy, owners says pups can hear and see

The white gene in the border collie causes deafness. If the puppies are hearing tested, then that's good. But they can still go deaf later on in their lives. It is a risk.

There is a test called the BAER test (brain stem auditory evoked response) which will test the pup's hearing.

Are unbred, untrained, 2 yr old Border Collie females (healthy-outside dog) of any value? I have a healthy 2.5 year old pure bred female border collie who has never bred and has always been an outside dog; she is trained with basic commands, but no herding; the farm here is not likely to get any sheep, so maybe she would be valuable to someone else?

Your Border Collie will be worth more is she has some kind of verification that she is purebred - for instance, registration with the AKC. Because she is not a puppy, she is no longer worth a breeder's price. This does not mean you should advertise her as free to good home. Free to good home advertisements usually bring out dog fighters and abusers. If you are looking for a new home for your dog, you may want to give her to a no - kill rescue group. Otherwise, you can list her on the classified advertisements for a reasonable adoption fee (about $50-100). Be sure you know she is going to a good home. If you know a friend or relative who may want a dog, suggest your dog to them.

I have a 2 yr old Border Collie and she is for sale I cant get her online though she is NOT trained but she has had one litter it was a secret litter though :-(. She is a great watch dog though she does have a little training in herding, but other than that just her name, Sweetheart. She barks every time anyone drives up the driveway. If you want another dog most of the time a dog will bark at something if another dog is barking at it first email me if your interested in her: bulletandbba@gmail.com Hope It Helps, -G

Dog's, unlike wolves or other canine's do not have a 'season' for breeding. An intact female dog will come into heat an average of every 6 months. But unless your dog is of impeccable breeding and has passed all health and temperament tests; and has titles, spaying your dog is the best thing to do for your dog and your bank account.

The best thing to do is to have the dog tethered to you or crated when he is in the house. When he needs to go out, go out WITH him and make sure he uses the bathroom. If he hasn't, do not bring him back in. If he is out for 30 minutes, then bring him back in and either tether him to you or crate him. When he starts to sniff or asks to go back out, take him out and stay with him unless he uses the bathroom. Praise lavishly when he uses the bathroom outside. Use an enzyme cleaner such as 'Nature's Miracle' to clean up all of his messes and where he has messed in the past.
