      About Collies

      The Collie was developed centuries ago to be a herder, watchdog, and companion. Made famous by "Lassie," a fictional Collie popular in the 1950s, this breed is well-loved as both a working dog and as a pet. Collies come in two varieties - rough coat and smooth coat - but are recognized by their distinctive flopped-over ears, thick hair and long face. These proud dogs are friendly, excellent with children, and are very intelligent and trainable.

      Did You Know?

      Like "Lassie," Collies are known for their keen intuition, and there are many true stories of them coming to the rescue of both people and animals.

      Origin of the Collie

      This born shepherd was bred in the Highland regions of Scotland. The original Collies were mostly black.
