"Dog Tag" print for Border Collie lovers

Combining hand-drawn letters with illustration in the shape of a dog tag, this original print is individually hand-printed on my press in a soft blue traditional oil based ink, inspired by the skies of the Border country.

Prints are signed and can be personalised and gift wrapped.

Can I have this print in a custom colour?

This print can be reproduced in your choice of colour as a digital fine art print of archival quality on heavyweight matt, acid-free paper. It's not feasible for me to hand-print custom coloured prints as the time taken to hand-mix inks and set up the press for a single print is prohibitive. Custom colour prints are signed and can also be personalised & gift wrapped.

If you'd like a custom colour, choose your print below and let me know what kind of colour you have in mind in the 'custom colour' box at the checkout. I'll then send you some options to help you choose the right one.

About Border Collies

The Border Collie was originally called the Scotch Sheep Dog. “Rough” or “Smooth” coated, they originated in Northumberland along the borders of Scotland and England, and are said to descend from dogs used by the Vikings to herd reindeer and the old British droving breeds, with a bit of spaniel added. A relentless desire to herd (be it sheep, cattle, children or cars) with a crouching pose and mesmerizing stare is characteristic of the Border Collie at work.

Top of the list of neuropsychologist Stanley Coren’s “The Intelligence of Dogs”, the Border Collie is known for its amazing wisdom, understanding and intuition. There are many tales of a Border Collie’s uncanny ability to foresee their owners’ needs and know when something is wrong. An intense desire to work and incredible stamina are the hallmarks of this smart and savvy breed. If they are not given a job to do they will just invent one for themselves (and then get it done - brilliantly)!
