Scotch Collie-Color-What is the proper color for a pure bred Scotch collie, or is there more than one color of pure bred collie?
The color is immaterial and is no index to the breeding. They are usually light brown and white or brown, white, and black. You must look to build, shape of head, expression of eye, length and texture of coat, size, etc., to tell whether he is of pure blood. The collie has a long, rough outer coat and shaggy tail; stands from twenty to twenty-four inches high at the shoulders; has a broad, high head and narrow muzzle; erect, rather small ears, and he puts them forward when spoken to or interested in some distant object; the eyes are brown, somewhat oblique, very bright and intelligent looking; the weight is from forty to sixty pounds.
