Hi I am Patricia and love my border Collie Max. We are a team and love being outside staying healthy. I have learned a lot by being Max's owner. People do not know that Border Collies come in many colors and coat and ears. Max is a genetic white witch means he is not from two merl parents it is just more white genes in him than most. He has brown eyes that look like he has eyeliner on and up close you can see little black spots here and there but not much. He has spotted ears. I know I will never find another one like him and I am enjoying every day I have him in my life. We are part of the Kansas City Disc Dogs and Max loves it more than I ever knew a dog could love a sport. Max keeps me healthy and my mind running to keep ahead of him. He also enjoys earning trick titles with Do More With Your Dog. If you had told me I would own a BC while I lived in town off the farm two years ago I would of told you no you have to have farm work for BC's but now we have so many things to keep Max and I happy. I brought Max to live with me 7-24-2014 at 4 months old and it was love at first sight. He did not bond with me for a few months but now the bond this dog and I have can not be broken by anything. We are a team. I never knew I would do so good with this BC living in town. I do live in a small country town and have a big yard.Max is a indoor dog. Max travels with me and is a pleasure to have to keep me company when we are on the road. Below is a picture of the first day Max came to live with me and he fell right asleep but he has been going full steam since that nice long nap. Ha ha. He sleeps its just that people need to be aware of how much energy a BC has but I love it.

Nice dog.

 

White border collies have been around probably as long as there have been border collies. Until relatively recently there was a prejudice against them and perhaps there still is among some folks. But it does seem to me that I see a lot more of them than I did 25-30 years ago.

 

Max looks like he's a lot of fun. Happy to hear you're enjoying him.

 

And welcome to the Boards.

I imagine we see more of them because there are also more white factored dogs around and people don't mind breeding white factored to white factored. There is still a prejudice against them among sheepdog folk, probably much less so among those working cattle.

 

I have a white working border collie. He as a black mask and ears but the rest of him is white with ticking. He's a great working dog.

 

Welcome to you and Max!

 

J.
