Collie is another name for sheepdog.
What most American’s call a Collie is actually a Scotch Collie (AKA Lassie)
They come in rough (longhair like Lassie) and smooth (shorthair)
A border collie is a smaller type collie from the same region (on the border of Scotland and England.) If you have ever seen the movie Babe, the dogs featured are border collies.
They need more than just something to do. BCs end up in shelters a lot for not being taken out for runs. Scotish collies usually have a lower need to get up and go (although many working lines still do) where a BC will keep going and going and going.
