Applenut...that dog seriously is at least half border collie...probably the other half rot. I have a border collie (brown one, its weird) and I know the shape/color patterns very well...and its almost a perfect match except for the brown accents, which either shouldn't be there or should be white.
BTW border collies are great dogs...very smart and need a lot of excercise...big yards are great. I taught mine to retrieve footballs, really useful if you are a place kicker.
Plus it helps to run them 50-60 yards out and back about 10 times. My collie is very inteligent as well...VERY large understanding of a lot of english words...and responds well to hand signals I.E. the ball is over on THAT side of the lawn. Also VERY protective and suspicious of strangers...though she never bites but barks and growls like mad.
[EDIT: Just looked at the pic again and realized it didn't have the little white mane that border collies have...]
