| 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. Shetland Sheepdogs are very rare in Shetland. The first AKC registered Sheltie was Lord Scott in 1911.
