14 Of The Very Best Shetland Sheepdogs Wearing Halloween Costumes

Strikingly beautiful inside and out – the Shetland Sheepdog, or Sheltie for short, is a lively, loyal companion bursting with energy. In addition, it is above all his magnificent mane and his loving face that make the Sheltie so special.

If you are considering getting a Sheltie, you should know what to expect beforehand. We have therefore summarized the most important things in terms of character, upbringing, and care of the four-legged friend in this article.

#1 The Sheltie has a very affectionate and gentle character, but is also spirited and lively. If you choose this breed, you will have a loyal companion at your side who will not like to spend time without you.

#2 Since it is a herding dog, the four-legged friend will also try to keep an eye on you all day long.

So you should get him used to the fact that you can't always be there right from the start. Because otherwise, it can get pretty loud, because Shelties tend to bark often and loudly.

#3 In contrast, the Sheltie tends to be shy around strangers and can quickly transition from being a clown to being more reserved.

Despite this, this breed remains calm and does not become nervous or anxious. But you need a while to open up to new people and are very sensitive.
