Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The McNab Shepherd-also called a McNab Sheepdog, McNab Border Collie, or McNab Herding Dog-is a breed of dog whose focus is on herding. It originated from a smooth-coated dog typically reported to be the Scotch Collie or Fox Collie, which was also the ancestor of the Border Collie. The appearance of dogs called McNabs can vary widely, though their shared roots with Border Collies means that they are often predominantly black or red with white markings - white muzzle with a white streak running up the head between the eyes, usually a white neck and chest, white-tipped tail and one or more white feet. Some are large dogs of approximately 70 lb (32 kg), while others are as small as 35 lb (16 kg). Some have natural bobtails and others have long, narrow, short-furred tails. Its ears are medium sized and can be "pricked" or the top half may flop over. The coat is smooth or short. A strong characteristic of the McNab is its "cat-like" feet which enhance its agility.show more
