There are two types of Collie coat. ROUGH: The well-fitting, proper-textured coat is the crowning glory of the rough variety of Collie. It is abundant except on the head and legs. The outer coat is straight and harsh to the touch.. The undercoat, however, is soft, furry and so close together that it is difficult to see the skin when the hair is parted. The coat is very abundant on the mane and frill. The face or mask is smooth. The forelegs are smooth and well feathered to the back of the pasterns. The hind legs are smooth below the hock joints. The hair on the tail is very profuse and on the hips it is long and bushy SMOOTH: The Smooth Variety has a short, hard, dense, flat coat of good texture, with an abundance of undercoat.
The Collie is a devoted family dog with an affinity for small children. It is loyal and affectionate and is the self-appointed guardian of everything it can see and hear. It is the ideal family companion.
