Collie is believed to be a perfect mate pet for human beings. I think that’s because this large size breed has mild temper and when you touch Collies they will be very friendly. Unlike Tibetan Mastiff’s fierce nature, the Collies offer security to human beings. I like Collie very much and I think in the future I will raise a Collie.
I think many people like Collie but have no idea how to choose a fine Collie puppy. I collect some information and I hope the follows points will give you some help.
1. As for new raisers, Before you buy a Collie puppy, you should read information about Collie for reference and know the preliminary knowledge about Collie, especially the pictures about Collie puppies. At least you should know the appearance and inner feature about Collies, in case of being cheated by sellers. It if funny if you want Collie puppies but when you raise them up, they become other breed.
2. The age of the Collie puppies shouldn’t be too young or too old. The best age of a puppy is between 2 to 3 months because this is the golden age of training a Collie puppy. If they are too young or elder, they can be your favorite pets when they are young, but you may face some trouble when they grow up because as they won’t at your command.
3. Choose the liveliest puppy and make sure it is full of spirit and energy. You can watch the puppies for a while and see which one looks most spirited and then check up to see whether the puppy has physical defects. Don’t choose the smallest one in the same litter because it suffers from an inherent shortage and it will be hard to bring up.
4. If you already make decision, it is necessary to demand the Pedigree certificate and technical data of the puppy because these materials are very important for raisers. Besides, the Vaccination certificate and assignment with signs of both sides are also very important. These certificates will prove you are the owner of the Collie Puppy. We know dogs are smart animals, they can find their original family. If you don’t want to involve some ownership cases, you should be very cautious.
When I talk about pets with my friends, I often tell them that for large breeds, Collie is one of my favorite breeds. I like their color, personality and shape.
Collie is a kind of pets which is very thoughtful for its master and its alert, intelligent and diligent features make Collie a favorable pet for human being and people usually regard Collie as their close friend. Collies are also the animal film stars in many famous movies. It is always the honesty friend which can help people guard their sheep, thus Collie is also called shepherd dog.
Collie belongs to the large breed and it has a small head with long and sharp snout and mouth. Its eyes are full of passion and alert, and you will feel secure when a Collie is with you. Even it is in a large size, you don’t have to be afraid of this large dog because Collie has a good temper and it is happy when you show tender care for it. But it will be very fierce when Collie meets a bad person. Men sometimes can’t distinguish good person from bad person but dogs always have the strong discernment. Collie is different from some pet dogs such as Chihuahua and Pomeranian which are only pets, and Collie is a practical pet that can guard your house.
Collies have different colors and I haven’t seen a pure Collie so far. They can be brown and white, or black, brown and white. We often see the brown and white ones. When I first see the Collie puppies, I can’t image these little dogs would grow up to the large shepherd dog! They have similar appearances with other ordinary dogs and they are really cute. But when they grow up, we can’t use the word “cute”, and to be more precisely, “honest” would be the most suitable word to describe Collies.
(If you are scrupulous enough, when you look at these pictures upside down, you will find they are the different stages in Collie’s life.)
Tips: It is a meticulous work to raise Collie. As a large breed, Collies need more nutrition than the small breeds to support its growth. The best way is to add some meat into its diet.
