The early version of the Border Collie consisted of rough-coated and smooth-coated varieties with a similar appearance to the modern one. The history of the Border Collie is often disputed due to the many existing theories on how the breed originated. At one point, it as believed that Queen Victoria fell in love with the breed while on a trip to Balmoral. In 1906, the Border Collie standard was introduced to the public. This affectionate and lively breed has been occasionally used as guide dogs. In 1995, the Border Collie was recognized by the American Kennel Club. Like the Border Collie, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier was known for its agility in the field. It was cross-bred with the Old English Bulldog and the Black and White Terrier. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier was bred to be welcoming to humans and became a loving companion, despite the fact it had been used for dog fights. In 1935, the English Kennel Club recognized the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. In 1974, the AKC officially recognized the breed. While its original purpose was to be a fighter in the ring, the loving canine was adored by families. The Border Collie Bull Staffy’s parent breeds are both recognized by the AKC.
