    Does anyone have or like Border Collies?

    I have 4 Border Collies. Does anyone else have a Border Collie? Does anyone here like them? They are such great, obedient dogs! I wouldn't believe it if someone did not like Border Collies. Everyone one in my family has one - we have all grew up with them and still love them!

    I've never had one but one came up to me in a park a few years ago to be petted and he was soooooo sweet. His name was Diesel. I have also seen one near my house who is very well trained in crossing the road. They are very intelligent aren't they?

    I would never ever get another breed. They are just the most perfect breed for me. And I believe they are the most obedient dogs and the quickest learners. I work with my Border Collies everyday in herding, flyball, obedience, and agility, if you tell them to do something, there are right at it. And they are also very quick.

    I have an 11 year old border collie/healer cross. She is the absolute most wonderful dog in the whole world.

    They are LOVELY dogs. I adopted a 7 year old from my local shelter 7 years ago, and she was an AWESOME dog, her name was Kash, and she was one of the most active, and most sweet dogs I have ever had. And she was also VERY obedient.


    Did you know: If the world was one shelter instead of broken up ones, 5,000 dogs are killed per second?

    Did you know only 40% of dogs in the world are adopted from the shelter?
