All About Sheltie puppies

sheltie puppies Sheltie puppies (also know as the Shetland) are great companion dogs – gentle, sensitive and one of the most intelligent breeds. They are extremely tolerant, which makes them good for family life.

Sheltie puppies and dogs have an incredibly strong herding instinct which stays with them, they love to chase things – this can sadly end in disaster sometimes as they are prone to chase cars and must be trained out of this habit at the earliest chance.

Shelties are a smaller version of the earlier sheepdogs used off the North Scotland coast for keeping sheep, ponies and hens under control. The sheltie looks a bit like a miniature Rough Collie. Now rarely used for sheep herding, it is a very popular breed in Japan and becoming increasingly popular in Great Britain as a companion dog.
