Most Dogs constitutions are not significantly different from a humans - so whatever you eat they probably can to (except chocolate). One thing to be aware of is Pedigree Borders have a potential to develop a sensitivity to red meat which makes them ill so it is generally advisable to limit their red meat consumption (and red meat based dog food consumption). Dog foods composed primarily from chicken/rice etc. are best to avoid any major bowel issues. A full grown male border should weigh approx 7kg (14lb or thereabouts), have a bold chest and pronounced rise from the chest to the hind legs - check up some photos of this if you need. On occasion some will naturally get heavier than this whilst maintaining a good shape.
