Hello everyone and especially dog admirers!
I didn't really like the default EA Border Collie, it seems somehow off to me, so I decided to create my own. After searching the Internet for reference pictures I found out about four most typical coat types and tried to recreate them for sim dog breeders.



BREED DESCRIPTION

This is a herding/working dog breed that originates from the UK. Other names are Scotch Sheep Dog and Sheepdog. Border Collies still herd livestock just as they were bred to do centuries ago. These collies are particularly well suited to work on challenging terrain for relatively long periods.
They are typically extremely energetic, acrobatic and athletic. They frequently compete with great success in dog sports, in addition to their success in sheepdog trials, and are often cited as the most intelligent of all dogs.
Given the breed's nature, Border Collies are probably not well suited to apartment living, but considering its friendly character live well in private houses. Border Collies generally have boundless energy. As with many working dogs, they really crave challenging physical activities and need plenty of outdoor time. The Border Collie breed is also known for being affectionate with family. The collies may seem guarded with strangers, after all, their ancestors were bred for centuries to look after farm animals.
The most common coat colors are black and white, red merle, blue merle, and tricolor (black/tan/white).
