  1. Thanks for the great input, everyone. I'll get a good picture of Max and post it before requesting more feedback!
  2. We recently obtained a Border Collie at a shelter in Wisconsin. He had been listed on "Petfinders" and was identified as a Border Collie. Wasn't so sure when we saw him--big pooch! Weighed in at 53 pounds at our vet. He has ears that look more like a spaniel. However, it may be a thick growth of hair--underneath, the actual ear flaps are relative small and triangular. However, he does not hold them erect as our first Border Collie does. By the way, we obtained this fellow as a companion for her. Both are neutered. How can I find out if the new pooch is Border Collie? I suppose may
  3. Thank you so much for the info on the dog treats. Have not bought any, but they sure had me "Hooked" with the cute ad.
  4. I love the ad for Milo's dog treats . . . not sure if it's the actress or the pooch that makes it. The pooch is clearly a collie of some type and another web location has suggested it's a Border Collie . . . what do Border Collie breeders, trainers, and owners think?
  5. Thank you for all the replies on Border Collie tails. Right after I posted this I figured people would think I was "anal" for worrying about it. All the answers were reassuring and informative!
  6. Almost every picture I see on-line here shows Border Collies with a lovely, fluffy tail. My girl, who we figure to be a BC-mix (unknown mix) has a rather hairless tail. Sometimes she carries it low, other times curled over her back. Any way to know what kind of a tail she'll develop other than genetic testing? She is not very fluffy anywhere, but is remaining very silky. Will be six mos. 12/9.
  7. Hello, all Border Collie lovers, trainers, and breeders. I have been a Border Collie fan since I learned on PBS several years ago how intelligent they are. In addition, I helped an area farmer hook up with a rescue group and he got a wonderful dog. We are a big "animal" family, a 4-1/2 month old Border Collie mix, a Golden Retriever, a kitty, as well as 2 horses and 2 jennies.
