Twitch is my grandmothers dog who I lived with for about a year and care for a few times a week. He is the first border collie I met and one of the smartest dogs I know. I swear he knows every word that we say! He runs and barks at the planes, trying to catch them, as well as birds. He is pretty comical. He does have some herding instincts, like biting ankles when someone has their shoes on. He barks at pretty much everything and has a lot of anxiety, even though he had plenty of socialization as a puppy. He gets along well with most female dogs, but shows some toy aggression occasionally. However, he is a very sweet and sensitive dog. He loves to cuddle and loves to run and play. He is very energetic (a little TOO energetic for my liking). He does pretty good off leash, too. All around a pretty great dog, despite his quirks!
