The Bearded Collie, affectionately called the Beardie, is a medium-sized herding dog that is perhaps best known for its memorable shaggy hair. Energetic, playful and often goofy, Beardies are easy to get along with and make excellent companions. The breed is also still used for herding today, and is considered a hard worker and independent thinker.

Beardies are known to be excellent family dogs that get long well with kids. They are affectionate dogs that crave human companionship. Beardies are entertaining - they can be humorous and even clown-like at times. They are a pleasure to be around! Could this be the right breed for you? Take a moment to learn all about the Bearded Collie. Or, if you have shared any experiences with this delightful dog breed, please share them. Talk about your Beardie!
