Short title:

The Bearded Collie is a herding dog. Herding dogs were originally bred to control the movement of sheep and cattle. While some breeds still work the farmlands, others are used for search and rescue and narcotics detection. When kept as pets, these dogs often try to "herd" their owners, by nipping at their owner's heels. If properly trained and exercised daily, herders make excellent family companions.

Personality: 
Beardies are the Three B's: bouncy, bubbly and boisterous. They are clowns, charmers, con artists and sweethearts. They make loving family pets who are extremely sensitive to their owners' moods. However, they can also be stubborn and strong willed, traits that kept them at their posts as sheepdogs for centuries. They are known for their intelligence and problem-solving abilities, which can make them challenging to live with.

Beauceron
