Originally known as the Scotch Sheep Dog and was a herding dog using to tend sheep. One famous fan of the breed was Queen Victoria, who was known for her penchant with dogs.

Care and Health

The Borgi is a relatively healthy dog who enjoys a lifespan of 12 to 14 years. The Borgi will likely inherit the Collie coat, and as such he will need to be brushed several times a week throughout the year, and during shedding season he will likely need brushing every day simply to keep his coat manageable. Because he has a thick double coat, be sure to check out our deshedding tool guide, where you’ll find the perfect tool. He will need his teeth brushing every week with doggy toothpaste to keep periodontal diseases at bay and be sure to check and clean his large ears every week, as they’ll often catch a lot of dirt! If you find that he doesn’t enjoy grooming, then make every experience pleasant with a treat or two.

Fun Fact

The breed has famously been a favorite of the Queen of England since 1933.
