I had a collie when I was a very young child. She was an incredible dog that we loved very much. I decided that it was time to get a dog to help with our goat herd and be a watch dog for our family. A collie was the perfect choice for us. Ellie arrived when she was just over a month old. Within a couple of days, she was already trying to herd the baby goats into their stalls. Ellie has continued to amaze us with her herding instinct as well as her watch dog abilities. She will let us know the minute a car pulls into our driveway. Ellie is a gentle and affectionate puppy. She is very smart and quick to learn commands. She is wonderful with my children as well. The collie breed has so many wonderful qualities, from family companion to livestock guard dog. This breed will bring years of loyalty and love to their family.
