In the interest of fairness, I am going to start by saying that not all border collies are a bad breed of dog. In fact, in many ways, they are the most loving and faithful pets you can find. There are many border collies out there that will love to be a part of your family, but are shy and don’t do well when you are around them as a group.

If you are going to adopt a border collie it is important that you are responsible enough to ensure that they have a good home.

This allows you to see if the dog has any health problems, and you can get a better idea of the temperament. You should always be sure that you get the information upfront before making a final decision about whether or not to adopt. a border collie.
