If you've never owned a dog, do not get a Border Collie. They are a very, very high energy animal, and they will run you off your feet! That is, however, a desirable trait for certain purposes, but they do require training from a good source (not a first time dog owner). They perform best as outdoor dogs, but cannot be neglected, or they will get into trouble!! Decent as guard dogs, but not their primary purpose since they are mostly selected for herding type behaviours. Jack was a good dog, and I was pained to see him go...
