Pictures of Border Collies

Updated on July 13, 2011

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. Collies make excellent companions, workers and dog agility competitors. Their hunger for a challenge makes them enthusiastic trainees in all dog sports, particularly fly ball, at which they excel above all other breeds. Their medium to long coats comes in many colours, but the most common being black and white. Alternatives include black tri colour, blue merle and red/gold. They can also often have different colour eyes!

To celebrate the excellent breed that is a Collie dog, I have put together pictures of Border Collies for your to enjoy. These pictures will show the varying fur colour, ear style and shape and abilities of the Collie through training.

Border Collies make the most adorable puppies! These pictures of Border Collie puppies show the most common colouring; black and white. The amount of black and white can vary a lot amongst dogs; some dogs will even have only one colour to their fur. Collie puppies are extremely playful and enjoy nothing more than a run and catch game in the park. Be prepared for them to keep you active! and watch out for their herding instincts kicking in. They have been known to try to herd children, or even cars.

      Thanks for the great hub, fantastic pictures! I didn't realise there were so many types of border collie. Our is quick stocky and black velvet fur on her back. We're wondering if she has some black lab in her. Otherwise she is all collie. Just adopted her yesterday and enjoying the getting to know you process.

      Glad you both enjoyed the hub; a very easy one to do with such great looking dogs. Border Collies are very intelligent and quick- they require a lot of attention, but are definitely worth the effort.

      We have a Border collie. She's a red and white and completely crazy. Right now she's sat with me, watching me and hoping I'll talk with her :)

      Nice hub, great pictures.
