The Rough Collie (also known as Long-Haired Collie ') is a type of long coated secondary to large size dog that in its original form is a type of collie used and bred to herd in Scotland. Originating in the late 1800s, now known through the works of author Albert Payson Terhune, and through the Lassie novel, movies, and television shows. There are also many fine glazed, some breed organizations, including the American and Canadian Kennel Club, expensive dog-coat smooth and rough-coat to be variations of the same type. Rough Collies generally come in shades of sable, Merles, and tri-color. This breed is very similar to the small Shetland sheepdog that part comes from the Rough Collie.
Three color coats recognized for Rough Collies: sable and white, where the "sable" ranges from pale brown to a mahogany; tricolor, which is primarily black edged in tan, blue Merle, speckled gray. All have white coat areas, in the collar, the legs, and usually the tail end. Some may have white fire on their faces. In addition, the American Kennel Club to receive white, where white-dominated dog with colored mark sable, tricolor, or blue Merle on the head and sometimes body patches. Rough Collies have a blunter face of the shepherd dog, smaller but otherwise very similar Shetland, in part derived from the Rough Collie. The planes of the muzzle and skull should parallel the top of the collie, with a slight but distinct stop. (In shelties, the aircraft is not aligned.) The downy undercoat is covered by dense long hairs, rough exterior famous Ruff around the neck, feathers about the legs, the skirt in the stomach, and frills at the back.
The desired size and weight varies among breed standards, collie man can stand 55.8 to 66 cm (22 to 26 inches) at the shoulder, females average 5 cm (2 inches) shorter. The men are usually in the range of body weight (45 to 75 lbs) and females usually 5 to 10 pounds less. Although the US-collie sometimes reported to be more than a hundred pounds, this is superfluous dirty for dogs healthy collie big usually weighs no more than 85 kilograms. British standard calls for dogs significantly smaller than those under the American Kennel Club.
One of the characteristic features of the Rough Collie is its head. This is the light in relation to the whole body, and resembles a blunt oval slices smoothly from ears to black nose, with distinct stop and plane parallel head. Well rounded snout, and never square. There are variations in the color of the head, however. The eyes are medium sized and almond shaped. Ears should be semi-pin, with a third of the top folded. The ears are not 'end' true general enough, and many have their ears collie recorded as a puppy (using medical adhesive tape or paper) to encourage them to put the right-no cutting or operation involved. They are similar to the Shetland sheepdog, but larger.
Once seen, the contrast between the head and that of the Rough Collie Border Collie is immediately obvious, the latter having a much shorter muzzle and stop more clearly between the nose and forehead. Ruff also special in distinguishing two breeds.
