Breed Info

Shelties are alert, active, loyal & sensitive.
There is no place a Sheltie would rather be than with their family… which makes them great companions.
They love to work together and are fantastic competators in a variety of dogsports.
Shelties adapt to the lifestyle of their owners, but they definetly are energetic dogs that need to excersise!

– Even though I live in Europe and our Shelties have an FCI pedigree,
I prefer Shelties from American/Canadian bloodlines. That’s why I use the breed description provided by the American Kennel Club. –
