The Smooth Collie is a breed of dog developed originally for herding. It is a short-coated version of the Rough Collie of Lassie fame. Some breed organisations consider the smooth-coat and rough-coat dogs to be variations of the same breed.
The Smooth Collie is a large dog, ranging in size from 22 to 24 inches (56 to 61 cm) for females and 24 to 26 inches (61 to 66 cm) for males at the shoulder; weights vary from 45 lb (20 kg) for females up to 75 lb (34 kg) for males. Standard size for the breed is on the larger end of the range in the United States and Canada, smaller elsewhere; for example, for the AKC, the range is 22 to 26 inches (56 to 66 cm) and 50 to 75 lb (23 to 34 kg).
The Smooth Collie is slightly longer than it is tall, with a level back and a deep chest. The features of the head, particularly the 'sweet' expression, are considered very important in the show ring. The breed has a long muzzle, flat skull, and semi-erect ears (although, in practice, the ears typically must be folded over and taped in puppyhood, or they will usually be fully upright in the adult dog).
