Pictures of Border Collies
Boder Collies are a breed of dog that is loved around the world for it's intellect, energy and non aggressive nature. Traditionally used as working dogs to herd sheep, collies are now becoming even more popular as household pets for owners that have a lot of energy to burn. Collies are beautiful looking dogs that glow with enthusiasm and willing. Their eagerness to please is obvious on their playful and always cheerful faces.

They can also often have different colour eyes!
