    Shetland Sheepdog Rescue Information: The Shetland Sheepdog is a small bushy dog resembling a miniature Collie. Shelties are curious, intelligent, and eager to please. Shetland Sheepdogs are very pleasant companions. Shelties are excellent with family children but are wary of child or adult strangers. Shelties need to be with their people. The Sheltie will chase cars if not kept on a leash. Shetland Sheepdogs can live in an apartment with plenty of exercise.

    Shetland Sheepdog Trivia: Shelties are descended from Collies crossed with a now extinct small breed called the Icelandic Yakkin. The Sheltie is the sixth most intelligent dog breed. The first Sheltie recognized by the British Kennel Club was named Badenock Rose. The first AKC registered Sheltie was Lord Scott in 1911.
