Farm collie

Farm collie

The Scotch Collie or farm collie is a rare collection of the remnants of the original Collie dog type.

When show breeders crossed the old Scotch Collie with the Borzoi in the early 20th Century they created a more elegant, cosmopolitan dog known today as the Rough Collie. Breeders such as author Albert Terhune preserved some of the original Collie bloodstock.

Scotch or Farm Collie is primarily bred in the U.S. and Great Britain as a working farm dog. It has more physical similarities to the English Shepherd, Australian Shepherd, and Border Collie than the Rough Collie. There are no current registries that include Scotch Collies for show purposes. It has the stereotype of Lassie, trained to be a sheep-herder, a bird chaser and catcher and do other useful things around farms. This breed stands as one of the least common.
