I adopted a border collie from a shelter when it was 4 months old. It was extremely energetic and playful. It was loving and kind as well. When first adopted, it had various training problems such as eating food off counters and defecating inside. However, these problems went away after about a month of training. Unfortunately every time a gate was left open Gracie would run away and I was never able to break her of this habit. Gracie was also not safe to leave around small pets, as she ended up biting my hamster in half, although I'm not positive this was intentional. In conclusion I believe the benefits outweigh the drawbacks and Border Collie mixes are an excellent addition to any family, provided that one has time for training and frequent walks.
