Longhair collies or “Lassie dogs” are, just like the movie star, very loyal and devoted to their owners. It is indeed proven that these dogs would typically help any person who needs help. They are very intelligent and active dogs. They get along well with other animals and also children. They are perfect family dogs.
Whoever brings a longhaired Collie into the house should be aware that this dog needs as much love and attention as he is able to give himself. Collies are very much in need of harmony and enjoy it when the whole family is together. These dogs are certainly not made for long periods of solitude or even a kennel position.
