I imported Sug from Scotland. We call him “Sug”, short for “Sugar”, because he is sooo sweet. In the years that I have been breeding Border Collies, I have never met a more biddable dog. When it comes to working, he is all business. He has no problem moving the larger stock, but I am really impressed with his grace, confidence and patience to move our chickens and turkeys from pasture to pasture. We are currently training his granddaughter Chili to help around the farm as well.

Sug has produced some promising working and agility dogs. His son, Finn is an explosives dog in Florida. He looks just like his grandfather Sadghyl Pip me to Comebye CDX UDX. Pip was an outstanding herding and obedience champion who produced quite a few outstanding performance dogs around the world.

He has medium energy level and medium- high drive.

Sug is out of imported working lines and has a balanced structure.  He is a red merle and white border collie with a medium coat.
