The TV star

FHM (Philippines) - - VERGE -

It’s no sur­prise that own­ing a Tv-ready Rough Col­lies will cost you an arm and a leg. Ty­rone Talam­era, whose prize-win­ning Rough Col­lies were im­ported all the way from Rus­sia, says one should ex­pect to pay be­tween P150,000 to P180,000 for a show-qual­ity puppy.

Hid­den po­ten­tial: Rough Col­lies were orig­i­nally used for herd­ing live­stock in Scot­land, where their thick coats al­low them to cope with un­re­lent­ing High­land weather con­di­tions. It’s a trait which many find at­trac­tive in the breed, along with their loyal and calm tem­per­a­ment.

Fun fact: Be­ing a Hol­ly­wood ca­nine has its perks. Pal the Dog, who played Lassie in the ‘50s tele­vi­sion se­ries of the same name, was re­port­edly paid a sum of $4,000 per week dur­ing the show’s hey­day. That’s a lot of dough for a dog.
