The Bearded Collie is a medium sized dog with a delightful, fun-loving personality. Gentle, easy-going, and agile, the "Beardie" has a bright inquiring expression that is a distinctive feature of the breed. Their coat is grey and white, weather proof, medium long and straight enough to split down the length of the back to hang on either side, lending a distinct jaunty aire to the dog when it trots. Bred for centuries as a herding dog, the Bearded Collie is a devoted and intelligent member of the family.
