Description


The Border Collie originated from the British Isles, and spent much of its developing history in the border country of Britain and Scotland, hence the first part of its official name. The second part, "Collie" has less certain origins. It may come from the word "coalie", meaning black, a Gaelic work meaning "useful", or from the name of a particular Scottish sheep breed. No matter the specific origins of its name, all these terms represent important aspects of this breed.The Border Collie was selectively bred for its skill in herding sheep, which includes its ability to use its eye to intimidate sheep. The Border Collie is still used for herding sheep in Britain and the U.S. It is also known for its high performance in agility trials.
