Shetland Sheepdog Rescue Organizations In All States

If you are considering getting a Shetland Sheepdog, you'll want to check out the incredible book "The Complete Guide to Shetland Sheepdogs". It's written by experienced Sheltie owner and author Catrina Mehltretter and uses expert advice from some top breeders. Highly Reccomended. It's widely available, so pick up a copy if you see one, or click here to grab one on Amazon.

Originating in Scotland and bred to help farmers by herding and keeping birds and sheep out of the garden, the Shetland Sheepdog is as loving as they are intelligent. They are a loyal breed and love their families – children included. The Shetland Sheepdog makes a wonderful watchdog, alerting their families to any strangers on the property. They can be a bit weary of strangers, though, so early socialization is necessary. This breed is very intelligent and is also eager to please, making them prime training candidates. However, Shetland Sheepdogs can be too smart for their own good, so early and consistent training is necessary. They can be content with being home alone - making them perfect for working families - but they will want some attention when you get home! This intelligent and devoted breed will make a great family companion.
