John Henry Walsh, went by the pseudonym of
Stonehenge. From 1857-1888, he served as Editor for the
world’s oldest country and field sports magazine, "The Field," which
began its publication in 1853.
This image appeared in "The Illustrated
London News," February 25, 1888.
His books are listed here, but none of them shed
light on a Beardie-like dog. In the numerous editions of The Dog. In
Health and Disease, he borrowed the same images for a Scotch Collie
and the English Sheepdog used by Youatt from his 1845 book. See below.

In the below book, he used a different image for a Scotch
Colley in his 1872 edition that was a far cry from the two colley dogs
on one image used in his 1878 and 1882 editions. All that can be said is
that they all represented different appearing types of Scotch colleys.
