what is the difference in standards and appearance between a bordercollie and an australian shepherd? i adopted mei-lin, a couple months ago from a phoenix, az shelter. she is a katrina dogs brought into phoenix after the flood. she came from louisiana, lafayette animal control. one set of papers signed by a vet say she is pure border collie, another says she is pure australian shepherd. the latest vet says she is possibly border collie/aussie cross. mei-lin is very friendly and happy to any human she meets. to dogs she growls and barks hard at them for a while, (maybe 30 min.,) then they become best play buddies. she is very active and can fetch or retrieve anything for hours, never seeming to tire. she has a fetish for anything made of hard plastic containing batteries of any sort. she already destroyed 2 cell phones, a tv remote,flashlight & cordless phone. she does not eat or chew the batteries. she separates it neatly, into 3 main parts, (front, back & batteries)
