What is the difference between a Collie and a Shetland Sheepdog?

Although the rough Collie played a part in the development of the Shetland Sheepdog breed, they are distinctly different breeds with different characteristics. The differences in structure between the two have been compared to the differences between a pony and a horse. If a Shetland Sheepdog were the same size as a Collie, it would be a much stockier dog with heavier bone. The head of the Shetland Sheepdog is comparitively shorter and wider in the back, the eye is a bit larger and there is usually a distinct "stop" between the head and the muzzle when viewed from the side. In personality, most Collies are more sedate and laid back than Shetland Sheepdogs, most of which are high-energy dogs.
