This is a hereditary stem cell disorder that can affect  the rough and smooth coated Collie equally.  The collies with this disorder will have a significantly lighter color but the other aspects of this condition will lead to a very brief life.  The immune system does not produce enough materials to fight off infection and progressively produces less.  Joint pain will also accompany this disorder, along with a host of infections.  Symptoms can include:

  • Very Light Coloration
  • Pale Gray, Pink, or Beige Coloration
  • Limited Growth
  • Weakness
  • Fever
  • Diarrhea
  • Joint Pain
  • Eye Infections
  • Respiratory Infections
