The Back Story:


Country/Date of origin: Great Britain/1500s

An ancient breed of herding dog, the Rough Collie shares a common heritage with the Border Collie. In the 1860s the Rough Collie caught the eye of people interested in the beauty of the dog and bred it to increase body size and the thickness of its coat. With the patronage of Queen Victoria, the Collie became vogue in the 1880s. In 1885 Collies were admitted into the American Kennel Club and great specimens were fetching more than the average man earned in ten years.

There are two varieties of the Collie. Rough coated Collie and Smooth coated Collie, both are the same except for their coat.
