Border Collie

Border Collies are athletic, medium-sized herders standing 18 to 22 inches at the shoulder. The overall look is that of a muscular but nimble worker unspoiled by passing fads. Both the medium-length rough coat and the shorter smooth coat come in a wide variety of colors and patterns. The oval eyes are the focus of an intelligent expression—an intense gaze, the Border Collie's famous “herding eye,” is a breed hallmark. In motion, they are among the canine kingdom’s most agile, balanced, and tireless citizens.

The Border Collie is a well balanced, medium-sized dog of athletic appearance, displaying style and agility in equal measure with soundness and strength. It's hard, muscular body conveys the impression of effortless movement and endless endurance. The Border Collie is extremely intelligent, with its keen, alert expression being a very important characteristic of the breed. Any aspect of structure or temperament that would impede the dog's ability to function as a herding dog should be severely faulted. The Border Collie is, and should remain, a natural and unspoiled true working sheep dog whose conformation is described herein. Honorable scars and broken teeth incurred in the line of duty are acceptable.
