My pets name is Felicia. She is Collie (rough and smooth). She is brown and black with a little bit of white on her neck. Collies origin of breed is Scotland, but you can find them in North America also. The first Collie breed was called the Scottish Collie.
The Collie is sensitive, sweet, kind, and playful. That?s why they make good pets for little children. Also if someone tries hurting the dogs owner or someone it knows then the Collie is known to attack the person. If you bring them outside then they get very energetic. A Collie will go 2,000 miles to reach its loved ones.
The life expectance is about 14 to 16 years. The health problems that a Collie can get in between those years is eye defects and hip problems which may lead to arthritis. The tip of their noses are sensitive to the sun. The Collie is a very popular dog breed resulting in sales of many animals of poor health.
Grooming a Collie is very simple. You should have a thorough weekly brushing plan. Bathe twice a week. This will keep it in good condition.
