2. Rough Collie
Like the German Shepherd, the Rough Collie is another breed that is smart and incredibly loyal. They have a beautiful coat that is actually easy to maintain. This is the breed that is synonymous with the iconic television show “Lassie.” They are a working breed and they do enjoy herding small animals, including groups of children. Collies can also be large animals, ranging in weight from 40 to 65 pounds. The females are smaller than the males. This breed does like to have some time to play outside.
