Border collies are good dogs. They're quick learners and usually have a strong bond with their humans
Though any dog can be trained off leash, so it really comes down to personal preference.

Were you thinking of getting a puppy or a full grown dog?

I need to start out with a puppy because otherwise my other dogs are a little bit harder to interduce a new dog to . . . But if it a puppy they all try to mother it.

Australian Cattle Dog. Only, they can be very dog aggressive.

Are they like that sometimes even when they are raised with other dogs? I have a dog already. If I bring a cattle dog as a puppy will there still be a chance of having issues with agression?

I think if you get a young pup 7-9 years old and let him know that he's the bottom man on the totem pole things should be fine. And be sure as he gets older that you and the other dogs keep him in check.

I think all dogs can become dog aggressive when in the wrong hands and without proper socalization.

My fiance and I have a German Shepherd, and we were concerned because we live with another dog and we also have 2 ferrets. Turns out he's just the sweetest thing to the ferrets and loves a good romp in the yard with the other dog.

I would say to do your research and to get any dog from a reputable breeder. And if you can, meet the parents too, as they give you a good insight on how your dog will be.
