Cal D: How much does a purebred Border Collie roughly cost?
I am sure there is quite a large Border Collie price range depending on pedigree and all that stuff. But breeders online seem very wary of listing puppy prices. If anyone has bought a Border Collie perhaps you can share your experience with the cost. Thanks

If you get a Border Collie from "working" lines 250-500 non-registered. If you get one from an American Kennel Club or Canadian Kennel Club registered breeder who shows their dogs in conformation, then you would be paying at least 700. First and for most Border collies are prized for their working abilities, so as long as they are healthy and well socialized I wouldn't worry about looks.

I just bought a working Border Collie, she was running cows for a month at five months old. I paid $350 for an ABCA registered dog. She picks up trash, sticks, tools and etc. Stays on my heels all day and I don’t require a leash as she never strays. Not spayed either and the DNA tests are fantastic! She also herds my chickens around and protects them. Just did it on her own as it’s instinct in a working dog. Screw show dogs!!! Unless you like picking up sticks and trash! The dog earns it’s keep on the farm!

My husband and I recently adopted a 2-year-old border collie. The adoption fee was $250 And it included the chip and shots. She is truly wonderful. We also have a male Borador (border collie/lab mix) and they are both extremely intelligent and great with kids. But they are highly active? ( they absolutely need space and daily activity)
Answer by Nancy
Adopt one from a rescue or your local pound. You have to go and look at the dogs the pound has yourself if you know what you are looking for since they are often mislabeled as other breeds. I have had 4 adopted border collies. The one that was from AKC lines even though she was beautiful and was oh so sweet, she was the dumbest of the 4. This last one by his looks and drive is from herding lines. He tries to herd the dogs at the dog park and he does a pretty good job at it until there are too many of them to try and keep to the area he wants them to stay in…

The price for showing and conformation line border collies: 1000-2000 dollars
- for sporting line border collies: $700-1500
- for working line border collies: $500-800
- Will a Border Collie Puppy be Rough or Smooth Coated?
- Afghan Hound vs Border Collie?
- What is the best dog for a border collie to get along with?
Although the showing line border collies are the most expensive, that does NOT mean that they are the best, in fact, they are the worst. They do nothing for the better of the breed and all the AKC breeds for is barbie dogs that can't herd sheep like a true working border collie can. It isn't too hard to prance around in a ring with over fluffy coats to earn worthless titles so that they can overprice their puppies. Please support ABCA and their working border collies.

depending on where you get it. if I were you I would check out petfinder.com. they have plenty of full-bred border collies that need homes. they are a lot less expensive too. probably around 50 to 200 dollars. the dog will thank you for rescuing it. trust me.
Answer by Ally Cat
I would say around $ 200 for a well-bred one.
Watch out border collies are super hyper!
Mine was free, someone just dropped her off with all of her papers outside of a PetSmart during an adoption day…when my dad asked how much for her they just have her to him.
She must have some brain damage or something because she is the dumbest dog I've ever met…we love her to death though.

I paid $ 500.00 for my Border Collie, however, that was 12 years ago. I have not looked at prices in quite some time. I am assuming you have researched the breed and know what you are getting yourself into as this is not a breed for everyone.
Answer by lilcslilhottie
Border Collie price depends on the breeder plus the colors as well, and females cost more than males, so I'm guessing 350 for males and 450 for females.
