Scottish Border Collies

Scottish Border Collies

The Border Collie is AKC's 139th breed. The Border Collie was featured in the hit movie, "Babe". "Collie" is a Scottish dialect word used to describe sheepdogs, including Border Collies. The 18th century poet laureate of Scotland, Robert Burns, accurately described the essence of the Border Collie, describing it as "honest" and "faithful". The Border Collie was first classified as the "Scotch Sheep Dog". In the second half of the 19th century, Queen Victoria spotted a Border Collie and became an active enthusiast (at this point, the divergence between our modern Collie and the Border Collie began). Border Collies are famous for their work in sheepherding, including sheepherding trials; a Border Collie fancier, Mr. R.J. Lloyd Price, is credited with the institution of sheepdog trials in 1876.
