Bearded Collie

One of Britain’s oldest breeds, the Bearded Collie is a strong, agile herding dog with a shaggy coat. His name comes from the long hair, or “beard,” under the chin. Known for his playfulness and ever-wagging tail, the Beardie is an active, intelligent and devoted companion. This working breed requires extensive grooming due to his long coat and fine undercoat.
Living Considerations
  • Good with children
  • Not hypoallergenic
  • Not suitable for apartment living
Did you know?
Originally known as the Highland Collie, the Bearded Collie’s name was later changed because unlike other collies he has long facial hair. “Beardies,” as they’re fondly called, descended from another European shaggy herding dog, the Komondor.
