Murph's Mom, I'm sure your research told you that border collies can be intensely driven and focused, with off-the-scale energy levels, and can be dog-aggressive.
I hope you have a very active lifestyle and want to get into activities for dogs. This is a breed that must have a job - whether herding sheep or doing agility or flyball. If you don't give them a job, they will find one on their own,(digging, barking, chewing, nipping) and it's guaranteed you won't like it!
So are you interested in Maybelle and Maybelline down below?
