Report Could my dog have Border Collie origins? in General Border Collie Discussion Posted January 21, 2013 This isn't much help, but a friend of mine (in the US) brought a dog back from her study abroad in your area, and he is built just like Lillo. Burger is black & white like a Holstein cow, not quite like a "traditional" Border Collie. While Burger has some traits that make some people think "Border Collie", to me, they're more like Spaniel or bird dog characteristics. Are there hunting-type dogs in your area? Whatever he is, Lillo looks like he's living the good life! He's absurdly cute.
