Smooth Collie Breed Dog Photos

Collie Photo Gallery – Pictures Of Collies!

November 24th, 2008

The Collie was originally bred for herding sheep and goats in Scotland.  This large (45-80 lbs) breed is also known as the Scotch Collie.  Collies come in 2 different coat types:  Rough and Smooth.  Despite their drastically different appearances, the 2 types are the exact same breed.

The dog in the photo above is a Smooth Coated Collie.  This variety has a thick undercoat with rough outer guard hairs.  Smooth Collies shed a moderate to heavy amount (as it varies seasonally).
