The Shetland Sheepdog, affectionately nicknamed the Sheltie, has a long history as a herding dog and watchdog. Today, this beautiful breed is better known for her athleticism and companionable nature. The Sheltie ranks high in canine intelligence, and those smarts combined with a willingness to please result in a dog who needs to have a job. The Shetland Sheepdog needs both physical and mental enrichment, so this breed does best with active families.
The Sheltie is a medium-sized dog; however, for people who want all the Sheltie has to offer, but in a smaller form, the Miniature Shetland Sheepdog is an excellent option. Due to their herding instincts, the Sheltie does best with a fenced backyard to explore and play in. Shetland sheepdogs are highly athletic dogs and excel at games like frisbee and flyball, so a Sheltie will keep you on the move, too.
