A Scots Shepherd Dog is supposed to be a forerunner of the Collie, I believe.ann freier said:my daughter's reading "The Call of the Wild", and asked me what a "Scotch shepherd" was, as Buck's dam is one in the book (she DOES have a good eye!--my daughter; don't know about Buck's dam ).
anyone have an idea? :?:
I had a friend about twenty years ago that had a Newfoundland male and a small black and tan shep mix mutt. They produced three litters of puppies before he got around to getting her spayed. She was one of those dogs that went through pregnancy and birth with no complications. All of the pups looked like Lab mixes.Can you imagine a large dog like a Saint Bernard and the little Shetland sheepdog (Shelties) having relations. It would of been difficult for a small dog to bare such large pups let alone care them to term.
Originally, from my undeerstanding, the collie dog was in refference to ANY dog that herded the Colly sheep.I have never heard the term. A Scotch shepherd would make me think Border Collie only b/c the BC is the top rated herder of working stock dogs. And this isn't my opinion. Where did the term come from from, England?
Too many collies out there to say "collie." What type of collie?
