Are Shetland Sheepdogs related to these collies at all?
I have a picture that somebody posted in a Facebook group that you might be interested in. I got permission from the person who posted it to pass it on to websites like this. It’s a nice picture of an early Collie/English Shepherd lying at the feet of three ladies having their picture taken at a bus station. Please let me know how I can get a copy of it to you and thanks for your dedication to the historic collie breed. I’ve had an English Shepherd and a modern type of Collie. Both were wonderful dogs. Take care, Lantz Shapiro
Turbo will bring such joy to your lives! What a cutie! When our puppy arrived tetrihen years ago, I was given the book The Art of Raising A Puppy by the Monks of New Skete! It is a very helpful and practical book!
OMG I was looking at this for a project and my dog looks exactly like the last picture, what type is that last pic because we got her as a rescue and they literally look identical!
Love your site. I have been doing a lot of research on dogs, particularly herding dogs. So I have a question. What is the difference between an Old Time farm Collie, an Old Time Scotch Collie and and English Shepherd?
Yes, there is a difference, the English blood in some lines of English Shepherd provide a different look and temperament. But just to confuse things a bit there is also a lot of Scotch blood in the ES breed so do your homework and know what you are getting if you are getting one. Check out this article to explain the differences. https://www.oldtimefarmshepherd.org/current-collie-articles/difference-english-shepherds-scotch-collies/
