Staff Writer

This week’s first pup is a friendly male, red collie mix and is approximately one and one half years old, pup number 2 is also a one and one half year old male, black in color.
A little about the Collie: Border Collies are medium-sized dogs with a moderate amount of coat, which is most often thick and sheds often. The collie is playful and energetic and thrives in an atmosphere in which he can play and exercise continuously. Collies enjoy companion pets, even though an innate trait of the Border Collie is to herd. The dog may do so with small children, cats and other dogs, but due to the breed’s intelligence, they are able to be trained quickly to live in peace with other pets and members of the household.
Before taking on the breed as a household pet, potential owners should be sure they can provide regular exercise commensurate with the collie’s high energy. These dogs will show frustration and distress if left alone, ignored or unable to run and exercise. Like many working breeds, Border Collies can be motion-sensitive and may chase moving vehicles and bicycles, but this behavior can be modified by training.
