Rough Collie coat question
 
Hello, my mother is looking for a dog and she decided she wants a collie. She likes this one but we cannot find how the coat color is called? http://img.wikinut.com/img/17wshv.q_...uy-my-pup.jpeg

Got any ideas? Thanks in advance! :)

White Sable or Sable white I'm guessing.

They're beautiful dogs - the Rough Collie was made famous by the "Lassie" TV series.

If you want a low maintenance non-shedding collie, a Smooth Collie would be a better fit.

Norman...you apparently have never met an smooth coated Collie if you think that. They are anything but "low maintenance non-shedding". I wish you would stop giving such blatantly false information.

Right...if it's on wikipedia it must be true.

I used to have rough coat collies. My friend has smooth coats. I think I had way more hair on me when I'm with her dogs than my rough coats or my shepherds!
