9. Bearded Collie
The Bearded Collie is considered as one of Britain's oldest breeds. It was in 1514 when a Scottish shepherd was said to breed a Polish Sheepdog with his other herding and flock dogs such as the Komondor and Old English Sheepdogs. These breeds were said to form the foundation of the breed. In 1967, the first litter of Bearded Collies in the USA was whelped.
Bearded Collies are good hunting and herding dogs. They can grow to a height of 20-22 inches and can weigh 60 pounds. They do not thrive well when kept indoors in cramped living spaces. They hate to be confined and prefer to be outdoors even in adverse weather conditions >> read more..
