Considered by many as probably the "World Most Famous Dog", Lassie has put the Collie to the top of the popularity chart for years and has associated their breed with quality traits such as loyalty, courage, intelligence, and also being protective and kid/family friendly. The Lassie character came to life way back in 1938 from a short story by Eric Knight titled "Lassie Come Home". The book was an overnight sensation and paved way for a movie of the same name which first featured Lassie's mug for the first time on film (1943). You can learn a lot more of Lassie's history by going to their official site.
