  1. Dog Breeds
    We're looking into adopting a puppy in the future and I did some research on these breeds. However, I'm still unsure which would best fit our family. I'm looking for some advice from people who have owned, or currently own, these breeds -- even if they're mixed. Here's a bit about us: We are...
  2. Dog Breeds
    Hi! I am interested mainly in getting into shepherds, but I'm not sure which breed to choose. I've fallen in love with groenendaelers, to some extend malinois, and, alltough not shepherds, czechoslovakian wolfdogs. I ask for opinions here and there and the dutch shepherd, border collie and...

  5. General Dog Discussion
    I was wondering if anybody who owns or has owned a Border Collie could give me some insight as to what kind of dogs they are. I'd like to get one some day (not anytime soon as I don't have the money nor the room for one right now) and would like to know as much as I could about them. I wouldn't...

    Hi, I have a very sweet border collie but lately I have been having trouble with something. She has become very protective about her stuff or place, so whenever I go picknicking or camping, and another dog walks by (sometimes she does this with humans as well) and comes bit too close, she...
  7. Dog Training and Behavior
    We adopted a medium sized Border Collie mix from a shelter 3 years ago. He was very depressed and showed signs of having been abused. He grew to love and trust us but still - after 3 years - is aggressive towards almost all dogs and will occasionally just randomly snap at people. I just came...
  8. Dog Training and Behavior
    So I just adopted my first dog (my parents had a small dog when I was about 3 but I don't really remember much of that). He's a 1.5 year old Border Collie mix that was taken to the shelter as a stray. We've only had him for about a week and he has become increasingly aggressive. The first two...
  9. Dog Health
    Hi all, I had a dog once with cancer, so I understand what will happen and there is no cure. But, I want to tell you all what happened. I moved to Florida recently to help my mom after her hubby passed away. So, things have been busy and had to find a new vet. So, about 4 months back I felt...

    I have a 5-year-old Border Collie called Max. He is an amazing dog and is also my emotional support dog. I rescued him roughly a year ago from a very abusive situation. He was kept in a dark stable 24/7 covered with his own filth, beaten and had to fight for his food. When I first got him it...

I recently had difficulty loading some hogs on the trailer in which the got out of the pen. I ran them everywhere until we got them back in. Speaking to a local guy he said a good farm dog...

  14. Dog Stories
    One of the countless case stories from “Border Collie Rescue” that shows the incredible work they do with dogs few people know or understand so well. Just ended up back at the story of “Natalia” whose appalling neglect formed the main part of an RSPCA cruelty case and prosecution. Despite...
  15. Dog Training and Behavior
    So we have a border collie/lab puppy who has TONS of energy. Very hard to tire out- usually needs at minimum two 45 minute walks a day plus two hard 20 minute sessions of fetch, plus 30 minutes of obedience training, plus all food via treat dispensing toys (so lots of mental stimulation and...

    Hi all, This is my new puppy Remy. He is a rescue, estimated at 3-4 months old by the vet. He was listed as a Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix, which the vet agrees with. However, he has some abnormalities and people have pointed to his facial coloring to indicate that he might be a...

    Hi, This is my recently 1 year old pup named Ajax. We bought him off gumtree as a kelpie cross border collie cross blue heeler at 8 weeks of age but as he has gotten older we have noticed his fur in the neck, back legs and tail regions is more like a husky/malamute/shepard type hair. At 6-10...
