Wouldn't her coloring be unusual for a Border Collie?

My initial thought was Aussie/Golden retriever.

Border Collies can come in almost every color out there and even Aussies have a sable coloration in their genetic lineup. However, since it's not one of the "accepted" colors, it's never bred for and so is relegated to a rare crop-out color.

And BC's can have blue eyes as well.

Honestly her color isn't unusual at all for a Border Collie, I know a lot of red or sable (I can't really tell which she is) dogs out there. iluvdogs on this forum has a sable BC boy with blue eyes.

But, I'm quite inclined to say that she's at least part Aussie. Those ears and the width of her muzzle are unusual in Border Collies, though it can happen occasionally. Much more commonly seen on Aussies though and Aussies are popular in your area, too.

I would have never guessed BC, so i did a search to find other "red" Border Collies. I found this site:

Thanks!

She looks a lot like the dog "Rum" from this persons youtube channel...

If I am not mistaken, Rum is a Sable Border collie with two blue eyes.

She really looks like a border collie to me...

Wow! That does look like her! Thanks!!!

I got a return email from a nice lady from the above mentioned BC site, she says she needs to see more pics but there is a good chance she is a pure breed BC. Her ears seem to be more aussie than BC though, they never "stick up" even when she hears a strange noise.

Thanks! Great looking dog.

Weather was great here in Houston, so I took the pup out on a long walk,
My son decides to throw a rock into a small pond, much to my surprise, the pup (Kiah) jumps in right after it, she quickly gets out, it was a little cold for Houston, she walks around the pond, tail wagging, then jumps in again this time in the deep end, and splashes around like it was greatest thing in the world...so my question is, do Border Collie like water? Or does she have some Lab in her? More pics!
