Shetland Sheepdog Puppies for Sale (Sheltie)

All available puppies pictured below are here in Oxford, Massachusetts

The Shetland Sheepdog was developed off the coast of Scotland, descending from Border Collies and Collies. They are a herding breed used for herding smaller flocks of animals. Shelties were bred for farms, yet they will adapt well to most living situations.

The sheltie is a friendly and devoted breed, known for their loyalty, affection, and need for companionship. They can be cautious towards strangers and as most herding breeds, they are extremely intelligent. Their intelligence matched with their eagerness to please their owner makes training a breeze. It is common to see this breed excel at obedience competitions.

Their coat needs to be brushed to keep mats from forming. They need to be bathed only when necessary. The coat sheds throughout the year (average level), but twice a year shedding is high.

Since Shelties can adapt to most living situations, apartment living is okay. Regular walks should be provided to keep the pet well exercised.

Full grown, Shelties are expected to weight 17 to 24 pounds.

The breed usually lives to be around 12 years of age.
