The border collie is one of the world's finest sheepdogs. Originally, he was known as the Shepherd's dog, the English Collie, the Working collie and finally the Border collie.
The head is essentially an old-fashioned collie head, fairly broad in skull, slightly blunt in muzzle. Body lithe, sturdy, long in comparison to its straight legs. Expression bold and keen in action, soft and appealing when at rest. Coat very dense and of varied lengths. Colour black and white; grey and white; red and white; black, white and tan; solid black or white
