Border collies are an intelligent, athletic, and energetic breed. They are a sheep herding breed developed in Scotland. They are medium sized with long fur, and come in many colors, the most common being black and white. Although they do make good pets, due to their high intelligence and energetic nature they need more physical exercise and mental stimulation than most other breeds.
