We had a border collie mix that was a hyper dog tore up everything in our house but I loved her. She changed and we aren't really sure why. She started darting out of the house running up and down the street. It would take us 40 minutes to an hour to get her. Then after Everett was born she bit Kyle. Kyle was standing near the back door calling her to let her out. She came charging and jumped up and bit him. She was just laying down before so I am not sure what happened. The kids were no where around. We had made the decision to bring her to a no kill shelter. With the behavior unprovoked we could not chance her biting anyone else or her getting out and biting someone else. It was a sad time for us.

We now have a small mix breed dog that we adopted awhile later. He is amazing with the kids. I'm hoping that he remains the same because seeing our other dog do that was so scary.!

Ahhh lyndsay!! im a pro at the border collie breed. i have a border collie mix. They are highly intelligent and high herding drive. They need to work so badly that if they dont do something they go kinda crazy. Thats why alot of people who have them train them for agility...as to the dog its a type of work if they arent herding sheep or cattle. Also they have a high tendency to look at kids as their herd and therefore to be protected....which unfortunately can mean parents or grandparents etc can sometimes get nipped. Its all very common for a border collie to act out like that which is unfortunately why so many end up in shelters. Im glad you took her to a no kill tho

She was a mix and we did have her trained which was why her behavior was shocking. She did not care for the kids much either. She was a very very odd dog. She didnt just nip my husband. She latched onto his hand and would not let go.

Yea it was really scary. Yes they are best buddies. Huge difference from a dog who wouldn't even play with the kids. When we adopted him he leaped into Katelynns arms. And licked her face it was all over after that.
