The border collie comes in at the top of the list for smarts and intelligence. These dogs are extremely bright and are in their element doing a job they love; herding.
Border collie puppies can make you laugh with their antics, but can also be a handful at times and adult dogs of any kind can be a nightmare, if not properly trained.
The border collie is mainly a healthy breed but can be susceptible to a few health conditions such as epilepsy, hip dysplasia, and a few eye conditions. They are also prone to allergies, which are mostly food-related.
