Bearded collie Description
  The Bearded Collie, also known as "Beardie" is a medium-sized, robust, agile, hardy and active, but not massive herding dog. It has a shaggy coat and an ever-wagging tail. It is an ancestor of the Old English Sheepdog and the family resemblance is obvious. It has a broad head, short muzzle and a shaggy coat all over its body, even under its chin, which is how it got its name. The outer coat is dense and weatherproof and the undercoat is thick and soft. It has a large head and teeth. Its eyes are wide-set and harmonious in color with its coat and its ears lie close to the head. It has a long tail and is carried low unless the dog is excited.
