My Experience with Bearded Collie was truly amazing. The very stature of this dog would grab your eyes. They have a very pleasing personality.The beardie I worked with is Riley. He is a clown :) Always up for tricks and mischief. I had the amazing experience to see him from his youth to his old man form. Not many of us know that Bearded Collie's coat change color as they age. Also their eyes match the color of their coat.
I remember Riley's mom brushing his long wavy coat every week and tying his facial hair into a cute pony. Riley is 11 years old but still is full of energy. He is an example that Bearded collie's are healthy breeds. He likes long walks and to play fetch. He is a gentle soul and is very pleasing and soft to other dogs. Beardie's love lot of space hence are not suited for apartments.
A good Vitamin,Hip and Joint supplement will give any Bearded collie their youth back. They will just bounce back with energy.
