Shetland Sheepdog Information
Intelligent and playful, the Shetland Sheepdog makes a fabulous family pet. He loves to play with kids, is affectionate toward his humans, likes to learn and is easy to train. As for the Sheltie’s history, there is very little doubt that it evolved from the Collie and was bred from smaller members of the breed.
The Sheltie was a herding dog, as as such, he has an instinct to herd people and bark when he doesn’t know someone. They love to chase moving things, so be sure to keep him on a leash or in a fenced in area at all times and give them plenty of exercise.
