In 2013 Shadowcat Films began filming a documentary to capture the incredible bond between shepherds and their working dogs. Set in the beautiful scenery of Northumberland and the Scottish Borders, ‘To the Border Bred’ explores the story of the Border Collie through the words of the people who work with them every day.

Featuring many local voices from the Scottish Borders and Northumberland, the film showcases many aspects of the lives of a Border Collie including a newborn litter of puppies, the first time that a puppy is taken to sheep and the ongoing training of a working Border Collie. 

The film also explores the story of the heroic ‘Sheila the Sheepdog’ and her involvement in the rescue of American Airmen from the Cheviot in 1944. 

Including the Border Collie Rescue UK, and SARDA the Search and rescue dog association, 'To the Border Bred' is a diverse and colourful exploration of the breed through the words of those who know them best.
