Puppies at 8 Weeks

By 8 weeks the puppies are ready to start going to their new homes. Their ears will begin to popup and we get an idea of what type of earset they will have. Border collie puppies can have prick ears, ears that shoot out to the side or ears that tip forward.

Border collies are known for their skills in herding, agility, flyball, frisbee and obedience. Below are some action shots and illustrations of young dogs learning their sport.

      Hi Rangoon House - Thanks for dropping by! No two border collies are alike. Each is such an individual; they will never be a cookie cutter dog like some breeds.
