Genetic analysis have shown that the dog started developing from the wolf about 135.000 years ago. Yet it is highly unlikely that the wolvess were simply domesticated. Contrary to dogs they loose their tameness when they become young grown ups. It is assumed that there had been some wolves that were more trusting and thus dared to go near the upcoming settlings of men. They discovered this way an ecological niche, because there always had been some leftovers. Thus the more trusting wolves had a selective benefit and over thousands of years they evolved into their own species: The dog. Humans were able to breed these for special purposes and thus ensured their survival and expansion.
One of these purposes was known in Ancient Egypt already: Hunting.

As probably most famous Collie (and dog) is "Lassie" known in (film)history. He rescues other in dangerous situations, runs for help and is the most true friend of his owner: A small boy.
Collies are outstandingly smart dogs, often they are considered being the most intelligent dog breed. They are quick learners, follow orders immediately and even solve some problems autonomously. The Collie is a loveable and playful dog, but it demands a lot of run-off and activity, otherwise it gets bored quickly.

Our plush Collie has a great demand too, namely for long sessions of cuddling and playing. It likes company for instance that of his lying companion (Kö-F3890), with whom it is depicted on the image.
