We got Spencer got of someone else though without relizing it. Then when we brought him home and had a look at his vet records, we saw his first owner lived up our street....

I'll try and make a full body picture when his paw gets better. Then you'll see
My BC has "regular" sized legs with spots...it's very common for borders to have spots on their legs.

I hope Spencer is OK!

Here's some pictures i just took an uploaded of him.We got told he's 80% border collie 20%?? Compared to a pure border collie he looks a bit out. all well, thats not that matters to me. He is a lovely dog and thats all that matters. Its not really the looks to much. As we say with humans, don't judge a person from the outside, its whats inside that counts!! Thanks guys for all your replies. bye

I'm back from the vet. Spencer was great. He was a bit suspicious when we got out the lead for the car. (We usually don't use a lead, he is well behaved) When we got to the vet we found out the piece of wood had acually come out much more. All it needed was a bit of a pull. Once the vet got it out in a pull, his paw started bleeding a bit. He now has three different bandages on his left paw. It was a piece of wood 1cm in to his paw. That was quite far in. It was aprox 1.3 cm's long. Anyway, just telling you, he's on his way to recovery. He had antibiotics just a few minutes ago. Now he is lying around somewhere in the house. We just have to make sure he doesn't chew it off. Anyway, cya later

His legs look normal to me. My BC has white legs with brown and black spots all over....I've seen many other BCs with spots on their legs also. In the second picture of other borders you posted, the dog is crouching down a bit and his chest fur is hanging down quite a bit (that's a lotta fur lol).

I hope Spencer feels better soon. The girls say get well soon.

Awww, thankies Gaddy. He is so much better now. He is a happy dog again. He's wagging his tail and jumping around everywhere in the house. I thought he'd do it and he did, he's ripping the bandages off. hehe. There's sracps of that wool stuff the vet used al around the place. luckily, he can't get through the main bandage. That will hopefully stay on till tomorro night. After that the dressings can come off. And he's back to normal. The vet said it shouldn't take long for it to heal. Also, he might look a bit more of a border collie than his mum. She's like 60% kelpie and 40% border collie. Anyway, cya later

lol. he's down watching tv at the moment to keep him ocupied. Tomorro or Wednesday he'll be able to run with his friends at the park again. I went down there today by myself without Spencer just to see everyone... They asked where Spencer was. If he runs on it now, he'll get it infected. I'll give him some excercise though so he doesn't get unfit. Maybe just a slow 10 minute walk at a time...

Cya
