Did You Know?
These super intelligent dogs are originally from Scotland, where they were bred for centuries to be shepherds and guard dogs.
The Collie is so smart they have been used for many other purposes too, including water rescue and being guide dogs. Many famous faces have owned one of these wonderful pets, including Queen Victoria, J.P. Morgan and Presidents Coolidge and Hoover.
