Check out the rescues. Our last 3 were puppies from the Humane Society, and each has been a great dog. Our adult kids got 3 more that way.I am looking for a dog as we speak.
Yes he was a smooth coated border collie. Looked like a lab mix but he had papers. Like I said he didn't know how to spell and we sometimes had to spell stuff in front of him so he didn't go nuts. I read they know over 200 human words.Is he border collie? They are very smart, useful herding dogs.
