2011 Smooth Collie Puppies
2011 Smooth Collie Puppies:
The Smooth Collie probably evolved from dogs brought over by the Romans in the period after 50BC which bred with native dogs and is, apart from coat length the same as the Rough Collie. Although there are differences in type between the two breeds these derive from different interpretations of the Breed Standard rather than any fundamental differentiation between the Rough Collie and the Smooth Collie.
The present Smooth Collie has been developed over more than a hundred years and is quite distant from his working ancestor; it is possible that the Borzoi was introduced at some stage, which would account for the narrow head shape with minimal stop and the slight rise over the loin.

However, the Smooth Collie still retains working instincts and cannot be trusted near stock unless he has been familiarised with sheep and cattle. He has a typical collie intelligence though does not have the same aptitude for obedience work and is quite happy to be an indulged member of the household. The Smooth Collie is not as glamorous as his Rough Collie cousin, but the advantage is that the coat is very much simpler to keep.
To become a full KC Champion he requires a working award, otherwise he is known as a Show Champion. The Smooth Collie is up to 24″ tall, the bitches being a little smaller, and weighing up to 30kg. Colours are sable and white, tricolour and blue merle with typical white collie markings. All colours should be clear and strong.

The Collie presents a picture of true balance, each part being in harmonious proportion to every other part and to the whole. Collies are considered one of the most beautiful breeds because of their elegant appearance. Sometimes referred to as the Scottish Collie, the Collie is of Scottish heritage. They come in two coat varieties, Smooth Coated Collies and the Rough Coated Collie with the only difference being the length of their coat.

Rough coats will occasionally produce smooth coats in their offspring. The Smooth Coated Collie looks like it has a crew cut. Rough Coated Collies have always been more popular than the smooth, and the personalities slightly differ in snappiness, which may be why the Rough is so much more popular. Collies are medium sized dogs with either long fluffy fur, or short smooth fur. They have long faces and elegant bodies. They come in colors of sable and white, tricolor, blue merle and white.Their personality gives way to their popularity, as they are very gentle, loving, affectionate and friendly. Much like the TV collie named “Lassie”, Collies will strive to be with their families and endure difficult hardships to remain loyal to their owners. Forever immortalized by “Lassie” (who was actually a lad!), they are a true family dog that enjoys human companionship.
