Collie is an inspired, quick-witted and lively dog, absolutely loyal to its owner. She easily finds language with children (regardless of their age) but is wary of strangers. Standing out on screen, she is considered the most lovable shepherd dog by American kids. Due to her qualities such as obedience and alertness, she can be an equally good star or companion for life. This energetic dog enjoys outdoor play and exercise, which is beneficial for its health and coat. Due to its sense of responsibility, the collie can be a nanny dog.
