Bearded Collie and Bearded Collie pictures

The Bearded Collie is a hardy active dog, with an aura of strength and agility characteristic of a real working dog. He has a high level of intelligence and resourcefulness and owners must keep him busy or he will invent things to keep himself occupied. It is believed that the Bearded Collie was developed from the Polski Owczarek Nizinny dog from Poland. The Polish dogs were mixed with Highland Collies which became known as the Beard Collie. Used as a working companion he would drive cattle and sheep to market.
The Bearded Collie can make an excellent watch-dog, as it has a powerful bark to deter would-be intruders.
