Like Lassie, perhaps the most famous canine television star of all time, Collies are known for their intelligence and connection to humans. The breed has been used for centuries as drovers and herders and are fast, strong working dogs. Most of all, this graceful dog is a loyal and affectionate family companion. Collie puppies thrive on daily exercise and activities and respond well to gentle training. You'll be rewarded with a loving dog who is as happy to play outside with you as he is to hang out with the family.
