I've finally decided that I'm ready for a new dog, and am hoping to get one sometime next year. There are several breeds on my list, so I'll definately be checking out shelters and rescues to see if anything calls out to me. But what I really want is a collie puppy! Since I've always gotten dogs from shelters/rescues, I have no idea how to find a collie breeder. Of course the most important thing I'm looking for in a dog is temperment - I know that sometimes collies are aloof toward strangers, so I will have to have one that is extremely friendly and confident around new people; I'll be training it to be a demo dog for presentations. I also want to do sports with it, so athletecism (sp?) is also very important; a lot of collies I see at dog shows are kind of clunky, so I want one that has good movement. A working bred collie would be awesome. Oh, and I MUCH prefer a smooth collie, I think they're prettier. Any suggestions???
