Collie Dog Breed History
The Collie dog breed history has many disctinct facts and at the same time it's definite origin is still unclear.
The first testimonials about a Scotch Shepherd belong to 14th century and noted in works of a poet J. Choser. Then the representatives of Collie dog breed have been described in the books "English Dogs" and "The British Canine Encyclopedia". All sources describe Collie as a herding dog with long fur of black or black-and-white fur.
Collie origin has at least two different versions. The first affirms that Collie ancestors have been brought to the North Europe by the Roman legionaries, another one describes Collie dogs as already existing as herding dogs at the territory of Britain for that time. Most probably modern Collie is a derivative of both those dogs, brought by legionaries and those used by shepherds in Britain.
Collie Dog BreedShepherd dogs have been mostly popular with Highlands, the territory between England and Scotland. An interesting Collie characteristic of lack of aggression differs it from other shepherd dogs. It is explained by the fact that wolves have been eliminated at British Islands long time ago. The main task of Collie shepherd dogs have been to herd sheep and keep the flock together.
Collie herding feature is so strong even nowadays. These dogs do not like people walking together to come apart from each other. They believe everybody is to walk in a flock and watch it barking and gathering the people together.
It is interesting that the Queen Victoria has become the first Collie fancier and breeder. She turned attention to these herding dogs in 1860 and brought them to the Windsor castle. This is the start point of the Collie dog breed as a companion dog. Collie breeders selected the most spectacular dogs with thick, long fur for breeding as a companion dog. And other Collie dogs proceeded to be used as shepherds got a name Border Collie.
First Collie dogs had black and black-and-white fur. In the process of selection there appeared red, marble and sable colors. First Collie dogs had more gross body and head form. The Collie dog breed achieved its modern daintiness in the process of selection by crossing with Russian Hounds.
Further Collie dog breed became popular in other countries and continents.
There have been established Collie breeding clubs in the USA and New Zealand while in Australia they have been used mostly as a shepherd dog. In Russia and them in the Soviet Union Collie have gained great popularity as service dogs. They took part in Russian-Japanese war as medical aid dogs. In the years of the World War II they searched bombs and delivered secret messages.

Collie and ChildrenCollie Temperament
