Ralphy is very playful and will be tall like his dad Lassie. I have both parents and live at home with my parents which they have plenty of room to roam around on. Collies love to have their own space and not be tied or caged up. They are very smart dogs and very playful with children. I personally will not have another breed besides the collie breed. Ralphy will come with a full AKC reg, his puppy shots and de wormed. Feel free to call or email me with any questions.
