i dont believe its about breed it should be about personality, a dog can look like a sweetie and be vicious where others can be calm and others overly energetic, id go with personality.

if the border collies are from a puppy mill or breeder, I say definitely go with the pups in the picture that were abandoned. But, like the above poster, it does depend on the temperament of the dogs, which may or may not be hard to tell this young (I don't have much experience with pups). Even though every dog deserves a good home, I'm always a sucker for shelter dogs :) Good luck.

I'd definitely go with the rescues.
They need a home. A border collie is intelligent and a fast learner but become easily bored without a job to do. They NEED to work for hours a day or they can become lethargic and destructive with boredom. Granted, any dog you choose should be properly exercised anyway but Border Collies are among those breeds that unless you have the space and time to give him then you sholdn't go with them- for their well being.
