If you’ve seen sheep­dogs in movies, chances are they’re bor­der col­lies. Hail­ing from Scot­land and Eng­land, the breed was de­vel­oped to help herd sheep and is known for its “herd­ing eye””—the in­tense stare that keeps sheep from stray­ing, ac­cord­ing to Dog­time.com.

Breeder James Chong likes them, “Be­cause they’re smart. They’re used in agility com­pe­ti­tions and are easy to train.”
