Rough Collie


I love tri colored boyfriend had one named Prince who passed away almost 6 months ago. Prince had a great personality, and always wanted companionship, to play and just enjoy life. My boyfriend and I are looking for a great breeder to get another one.
Hi from Ann in West Lothian Scotland.   I have a 2 1/2 year old sable and white rough collie called Elvis.   I just love these dogs. Love the website.
my prince a rough collie was my favorite dog but sadly he passed away last sunday and i miss him so much. He was only 10years, 6months old and i do wonder if there was something i could have done for him to live longer. I feel so guilty, because we had to have him put to sleep because he went off his back legs and had a serious heart murmur
Just on this site for the first time and I also have a collie pup she's 6 months old now and we love her to bits and that's how my best golf glove is bits but we still love her.

Have your Say

A Rough Collie is a breed of dog created in the beginning for herding in Scotland. It is well known because of the works of writer Albert Payson Terhune, and was made popular later on by the Lassie novel, films, and TV shows. There is also a smooth-coated dog; some breed organizations consider the smooth-coat and rough-coat dogs to be fluctuations of the breed.



Collies come in five basic coat colours: sable and white, where the "Sable" ranges from pale tan to a golden mahogany; white (which some breed standards disallow); tricolour, which is primarily black edged in tan; sable merle, almost identical to a sable and white, yet with a slightly mottled sable coat, and blue merle, which is a mottled gray. All come with white coat areas, in the collar, parts of the leg, and maybe tail tip. Some may have white blazes on their faces. Tricolours are more likely to have a tan blaze on their face.

The desired size and weight varies among breed standards; male collies can stands 55.8 to 66 cm (22 to 26 in) at shoulder; the bitch averages 5 cm (2 in) shorter. The male can weigh 20.4 to 34 kg (45 - 75 lb) and bitches 5 to 10 pounds (2.3 - 4.5 kg) less.

The mascot of Texas A&M University, Reveille VII, is a Rough Collie.

Dog - Rough Collie Tricolour

The double layered coat needs to be brushed frequently and thoroughly to keep it in a show condition, but it does not require extensive care. Rough collies should show no nervousness or aggressiveness, and are good with children and other animals. However, they must be well socialized to prevent shyness. They are mid to large sized dogs, are suited to live in small apartments because of their calm disposition; as they are not high strung as the Poodle, Labrador and other hunting breeds. The herding instinct is very much apparent in some dogs, but other dogs do not show this as much. Rough Collies are very loyal and protective to their owners.

They are a good family dog. They are eager to learn and to please and respond best to a gentle hand. They relish human company and should be let outside as they need to run and exercise. By nature gentle and domesticated, they are fearless in danger and will rush to defend their owners. Due to several booms in the popularity of this breed, breeders more concerned with profit than breeding good dogs have produced Collies that are high-strung, neurotic or extremely shy. These problems are not typical of well-bred Collies, and can usually be avoided by acquiring a Collie either through an ethical breeder or a good rescue organization.


Both Rough and Smooth collies are descended from a localised variety of herding dog originating in Scotland. Originally, there were numerous forms of these dogs. After the industrial revolution, dog ownership became fashionable, and these early collies were crossed with the Borzoi (Russian Wolfhound), to get a more "noble" head, which is today one of the true characteristics of the rough collie. Continued breeding for show purposes drastically changed the appearance of the dogs; it was in the 1960s a much taller dog than today. Earlier dogs were also more sturdy in build.

They are friendly, unaggressive dogs. The coat needs to be brushed frequently to keep it in a show condition, but it doesn't require extensive care. They are mid-sized dogs, suiting them to live in small houses and apartments.

Picture of Amity from Jan in Oz - Thanks

Amity the Rough Collie Dog
Hi, This is Amity my wonderful friend.  She was a pound dog, her owner had to go into a Nursing Home.  We think she was a show dog by the way she stands, she was also fully trained when we got her.

Now she spends her life lying around and visiting old folks in Homes.  These collies seem to have the perfect temperament for a Pet Therapy dog.  She is now nine years old.  This photo is not the best one of her but there just seems to be something in her eyes ....... Amity .... it means Friendship.

Regards - Jan from Oz

Just on this site for the first time and I also have a collie pup she's 6 months old now and we love her to bits and that's how my best golf glove is bits but we still love her.
Hi. I had 2 collies, with the first names DOUSKA....I got her in Scotland while on holiday, and brought her home to live in Ireland. She was the sweetest sweetest and cleverest dog I ever had, and I had  a snow white Alsatian before her call Sasha. When i left home to move into my first house on my own, my mother was so upset at the thought of Sasha moving out with me, I decided to leave her with my mom. I also left  Douska with my mother while going on holiday, but she had an unfortunate accident and died. I got another rough collie a year later and called her Douska 2. When family started to arrive we gave her to friends who had just lost their dog to old age, and they were thrilled to give her a new home where she was was just one of the family. We are now considering getting a new collie as our family are grown up and we miss having a dog around. To me, a Rough collie is the perfect dog as your best friend.
Gracie, my 4 year old collie died in May. She had Blastomycosis. She was the love of my life and I miss her every day. There is not a sweeter dog than a Collie.   Cherish each and every day that you have with your Collie.
