Smart, alert and outgoing, these short-legged dogs are small but mighty. They come from a long line of working dogs that have herded cattle, and they still have that herding instinct today. At home, they love to follow their family around and get them all in the same room. They’re friendly, loyal and loving, but not above nipping your ankles to get you moving in the right direction.
These dogs have been the faithful companions to Queen Elizabeth II for decades. More recently, they’ve become Internet memes for their uncanny resemblance to a loaf of bread, and they even have their own beach meet-up in Southern California.
