The 16+ Cutest Shetland Sheepdogs Currently Online

The homeland of the Sheltie breed is the Shetland Islands, located off the northern coast of Scotland. On them, such a small dog served only as a “steward” of the herd, and not as a guard. While herd times were small, the Shelties did an excellent job. As the herds began to grow in size, farmers began to use the larger shepherd dogs, which put this breed under threat of extinction. However, the breed was saved by amateurs who perceive it as decorative, indoor.

#1 Sheltie (Shetland Sheepdog) is a cheerful companion, a responsible nanny and a devoted friend.

#2 All Shelties are extremely curious, so they will not miss the opportunity to get to know any representative of the fauna that they meet on their way.

#3 Sheltie’s delicate downy undercoat is highly prized by knitters.

Items knitted from dog hair have a healing effect and practically do not differ in appearance from products made from industrial yarns.
