Shetland Sheepdog Dog Breed Information

The Shetland Sheepdog, or Sheltie as it is commonly called, is essentially a working Collie in miniature. Like the Collie, the Shelties history traces back to the Border Collie of Scotland, which, after being transported to the Shetland Islands and crossed with small, intelligent, longhaired breeds, was eventually reduced to miniature proportions.

Over time, subsequent crosses were made with Collies. The breed worked as farm helpers and home protectors, watching over cottages, flocks and herds from invaders of all kinds.
