Donny the loving collie

My Donny is a rough collie with a wonderful nature. His two favourite things in the world are food and cuddles and I think this reflects the breed. Rough collie's are stubborn so if they have 1 bad experience with something they will be put off that particular thing for life. A downside with the rough collies is their lack of tolerating certain foods which other dogs can. This means I can't give him normal dogs treats as they upset his stomach. I've found this to be another common rough collie trait. I've grown up with rough collies and they have always been very good tempered dogs that are great with children. Although their coats look horrendous to groom, we only have to groom him once a month to keep him looking pretty. I'd definitely recommend this breed of dog.
