About six years ago got my daughter a standard poodle. Shortly there after learned breed was for hunting this thing actually had webbed feet. Loved being in water. It got to be he was always by my side. He was also very protective of my wife and daughter. Then shortly after Christmas of 08 he vanished.

So, no chance of a Karelian Bear Dog? You never know when you might need your K9 to avenge you against marauding ursines. http://victoriatrix.hubpages.com/hub/Bear-Hunting-Dog-Breeds They have similar coloration to the border collie.

Not a retriever, for certain.

I voted Border Collie because we have two Australian Shepherds (their cousins).

Sydney



Brisbane

Both breeds would make an excellent companion,as someone mentioned the Golden Retrievers are a larger breed than the Boarder Collie. I saw a show about Dogs and the different breeds,they mentioned that the Border Collie was one of the more intelligent breeds of the Dogs. Both will need a lot of attention to their long coats of hair.

Our neighbor has a Boarder Collie named Tough, he's a smart little guy,i'm guessing around 30lbs. of high energy

I have a Border Collie. You better be very prepared to exercise that dog like crazy. If you don't it will pace, whine, dig holes, chew things, excessively bark, etc.
