The History Origins, Characteristics and Coat of a Rough Collie

Origins. This breed originated, like the other three Collie breeds, Smooth, Border and Bearded, in the dark-colored herding dogs of Scotland. from which the name is derived. 'Col' is Anglo-Saxon for black. For centuries they carried out their arduous work herding sheep on the northern hills, with only local recognition. In 1860, however, Queen Victoria visited Balmoral for the first time, saw the breed, fell in love with it and so assured its future popularity.

Characteristics. This is a strong and active dog, free from coarseness. The head is tapering, the expression alert, intelligent and inquisitive.  It makes an excellent loyal pet, responding well to training.

Group. Herding. Working (KC) Size. Large 

Coat. Color: Sable and white, tricolor, and blue merle, each with white markings. Texture: Very dense, the outer coat straight and harsh, the undercoat soft, furry and very close. Mane and frill very abundant, legs well feathered.
