Artist's Description

More than a century ago, in 1894, a a Northumbrian farmer cross-bred his two sheepdogs in order to create the perfect herding dog. One with the intelligence and protectiveness of the great large flock guardians, but the friendliness and desire to please of the passive sheepdogs. The result of that breeding is what we call the Border Collie. Although the Border Collie is hailed as the “supreme herding dog”, he was not recognized by the American Kennel Club until 1995.

Coat colours range from the common black and white, to sable, blue and white, red and white, blue merle and the tri-colour black, tan and white.
One of the most talked about characteristics of the Border Collie is the “stalking behaviour” that these dogs exhibit, when working or playing. An intense stare and a low-bellied crouch towards it’s objective is somewhat unnerving for those new to the breed. This same intensity makes the Border Collie a breed to excel a Search and Rescue, and dog sports like Agility. Their versatility is amazing.
