When were the first BCs documented in the USA?

Recommended Posts

I was curious if anyone knows the approximate time that working Border Collies were first imported to the USA?

I have not been able to find much info documenting historically when they were first brought into the USA.

I have a picture of my family from about 1860. They are sitting in front of their sod house on their farm in MO. There is a black and white dog named Jack that looks just like a BC sitting with the kids. I don't think there were any BCs as we known them in the USA until much later. I suspect that Jack was more along the lines of an English Shepherd.
