Bearded Collie Club - Beardie Colours & Development

BCC Logo

The four basic colours of the Bearded Collie are slate, brown, blue and fawn. All these colours occur in combination with white. What is remarkable about a Beardie's coat colour is just how much it can change in growing from puppy to mature dog.

We have attempted to show typical changes in coat colour in a series of photographs of a Beardie of each colour type.
