      About Bearded Collies

      The Bearded Collie, or “Beardie” as it is affectionately called, is often confused with the Old English Sheepdog. (The easiest way to tell the difference between the two is their tail – Beardies have one, OES don’t!) Bearded Collies have large, expressive eyes and are medium sized, reaching approximately 45-55 lbs. in adulthood. These dogs are bouncy, intelligent, and have charming personalities. They are excellent with children, eager to please and excel at dog sports such as agility, obedience, and herding.

      Did You Know?

      The Beardie was originally bred to be a working sheepdog, and today works great as a family watchdog.

      Origin

      The Bearded Collie originated in Great Britain, likely in the 16th century.
