The Bearded Collie, or Beardie, is a herding breed of dog once used primarily by Scottish shepherds, but now mostly a popular family companion. Bearded Collies display shaggy hair and sweet disposition and are independent, inquisitive, high energy and athletic.
Cheerful and happy-go-lucky, the Bearded Collie is affectionate and playful. A wonderful playmate for children, this dog loves to be near its family. Bearded Collies shed, though some of the shed hair gets caught in the long wavy coat rather than ending up on your floor and furnishings.
