|Hi Bunny. The average height and weight of a Border Collie is 18-22 inches and 30-55 lbs., respectively. Enjoyment at playing soccer and the other traits you describe apply to Border Collies along with many other breeds. There are many acceptable colors and combinations of a Border Collie's coat, and the texture may be wavy, curly, smooth, rough -- the Border Collie is prized for working ability not appearance. High energy (not hyper - as some people label them) is standard and very intense focus when working (tasks happily performed 24/7). As far as hating cats: Yes, most Border Collies will chase a cat but "hating cats" is dog specific, not breed specific. Bunny didn't have exposure to or wasn't taught how to peacefully live with cats in his early years.
Although I don't really see Border Collie, it's a possibility. Bunny is a beautiful dog -- and appears to be just as good and wonderful as a companion and family member as he is beautiful! I do see Pomeraniana/Spitz in Bunny. Possibly some Schipperke (but with a tail?)
