I would recommend the rough collie as a great family dog. Here in Scotland our rough collie males are on average 24 inches at the shoulder. Our dog Elvis is the sweetest natured dog you can imagine and we love him to bits. He is also a very beautiful sable and white dog.

    Sounds like you love your puppy. Of course, I would love any puppy named Elvis. He has to be my favorite. Seriously, I love the collies.

We have two blue merle rough collies in the UK. Surprisingly we find they are not that keen on long walks, even though they get them twice a day!

Can be yappy and yes, they do tend to over eat if you allow them to do so.

However, they are loyal, loving, and in our minds, the most beautiful dog ever bred.

Be prepared to allow time when out with them, as you will be stopped constantly and asked I bet they are hot in the summer!

Have you ever seen the fabled mix of Great Pyrenees and Smooth Haired Collie?

Very rare. But the smartest, most mischievous and outstandingly unique combinations of herding/explorer dogs (with unique brown diamonds around the eyes and a body nearly that of the normally pointy-faced Short-Haired Collie).

Any gimmicky combo-names come to mind?
