The Shetland Sheepdog
Other Sheltie Photos


Faithful, supremely intelligent, and with great beauty, the "Sheltie" as he is affectionately called, originated in the Shetland Islands off the north coast of Scotland. The dwarfing effect of rigorous climate, rugged conditions, limited feed, and other factors has, over the years, produced this diminutive dog.

The Shetland Sheepdog has a very obedient nature and is supremely easy to train, and eager to please. His devoted, docile nature, and keen intelligence and understanding, make him a good companion dog. Reserved with strangers, the Shetland Sheepdog is intensely loyal, affectionate, and responsive with his owner and family. He has a strongly defined sense of boundary, and makes a good little watchdog.

The Shetland Sheepdog's coat is characterized by its abundant mane and frill. A two-ply coat, consisting of long straight harsh hair over a short dense furry undercoat, it requires regular attention.
