Black and White
Does color make a difference?
Color is a personal preference, but should never be the sole basis of breeding. The border collie should be bred for intelligence, soundness of mind and body and working ability. The fact that border collies come in beautiful colors is just the icing on the cake. The most common colors are black & white and black tri. Border Collies also come in other colors including red & white, red tri, sable & white, blue & white, red merle, blue merle, sable merle and pattern white. Color is not a factor in the personality of the dog.
