Hello! I'll be bringing home my first border collie at the end of the month (so excited!!) He's a gorgeous little Blue Tri boy. I am wondering what type of coat he'll have? His mum was relatively smooth, and his dad was rough - the breeder thinks my little boy will be medium like his Dad. When I met him at 7 weeks, he was much fluffier than some of his litter mates but not as fluffy as other BC pups I've seen. I'll adore him no matter what, but just curious as to what opinions are on what his coat will be? First pic is at 7 weeks, second is about 6 weeks and third pic is about 4 weeks. Thanks SaveSave SaveSave
Hello! I'm thrilled to be part of the Border Collie club. So far, I'm loving my new puppy. He turned 11 weeks, this past weekend. I've had him for 2 weeks and have enjoyed watching him grow and develop his personality. When I bought the puppy, the breeder told me it was a Brown Tri, even though he didn't have any of the light brown/tan color. He said that the puppy would grow into it. I noticed that his other litter-mates did have the light brown/tan color, so I thought it was odd he didn't have it, if he was in fact going to be a tri. I am curious what you guys think. Do you see any signs of tri in him? Is this something that some puppies do grow into? I don't really care if he is tri or not, I'm just asking out of curiosity. Here are two pictures that were taken over the weekend, at 11 weeks of age. Thanks!
According to Anadune database I can expect to get 1-2 smooth coated puppies by breeding my rough coated bitch to a rough coated stud dog. (They both have smooth coated mothers) But I have been told that it is impossible to have a smooth coat from that cross - basically that one HAS to be smooth....just curious which is correct.... Thanks!
Hello everyone! New to BCs and the forum. I'm hoping adopt this adorable pup when I get back to the States in a couple weeks. His dad has a rough coat, and I know smooth is dominant over rough, but he looks a tad too fluffy to be smooth. Is there partial gene expression in coat length, or will he get rougher/smoother as he gets older?
