While Balbir had his back turned, a dog ran into his butcher shop, snatched a piece of meat off the counter and ran out. Balbir was mad when he realised what had happened. He asked three other shopkeepers, who had seen the dog, to describe it. The shopkeepers really didn't want to help Balbir. So each of them made a statement which contained one truth and one lie.

  1. Shopkeeper Number $1$ said: "The dog had black hair and a long tail."
  2. Shopkeeper Number $2$ said: "The dog has a short tail and wore a collar."
  3. Shopkeeper Number $3$ said: "The dog had white hair and no collar."

Based on the above statements, which of the following could be a correct description?

  1. The dog had white hair, short tail and no collar.
  2. The dog had white hair, long tail and a collar.
  3. The dog had black hair, long tail and a collar.
  4. The dog had black hair, long tail and no collar.
