Collie This is not a collie, but a Shetland Sheepdog or Sheltie. Rough or Smooth Collies are much larger with long elegant noses. Although shelties and collies share some breed characteristics they are two separate breeds.
I chose this picture because I liked how the photographer made the dog the clear subject by blurring the background, and the flowers that frame it. I also like how they used the rule of thirds when positioning the dog's face.
