The Bearded Collie is one of the oldest British Breeds of dogs. They grow to be pretty big dogs, and are the most adorable puppies. They were originally bred to be sheep dogs and are normally quite lean and athletic under their big fluffy exterior. They are an ultimate family dog and will bond individually with each member of the family. They are also guaranteed to catch the eye of onlookers at the park!
The average lifespan is around 13-14 years, but they can live for up to 15 years with the right diet, genetics and lifestyle.
They usually grow to about 50-55cm in height and weigh an average of 22-28kgs in peak condition.
