It’d be very difficult to not mention Lassie when talking about collies, so there. Now that that’s out of the way, collies are a very popular breed of large dog, not only for their obvious ties to classic literature and film, but for their sharp minds and friendly natures. These loyal dogs rarely show signs of aggression unless their owners are in need of protection. Equally fearless and gentle, the collie is good with kids and can be the ideal addition to a happy family.

They can get as tall as 2 feet and weigh 50 to 70 pounds, making them slightly smaller than the Bernese.
