|The Shetland Sheepdog, or 'Sheltie'as it commonly is known, originated in Scotland then continued it’s evolution in the Shetland Islands where they crossed a border collie-type dog with small, long haired breeds. This gave the Sheltie its small size and high intelligence. As their name implies their first job was to herd sheep, but they find no discomfort in attempting to herd people too. The Sheltie can be any color including black, tan, blue merle or any combination with white features. The AKC recognized the breed in 1911 in the Herding Group. The Average height is 13-16 inches at the withers. They do have a dense double coat that does require regular brushing to avoid mats.|| || |
