The Shetland Sheepdog has the appearance of a miniature collie dog, and can evoke cries of "it's baby Lassie!" wherever it goes. The Sheltie has a narrow and long face, framed by luscious, long straight hair. While their outer coater can be rough, the undercoat is soft and smooth. This breed is small but well built and athletic in appearance.Their almond eyes are sweet and well melt your heart!
The Shetland Sheepdog requires an appropriately balanced diet to manage their energy needs and prevent them becoming overweight. They don't tend to be fussy eaters.
The double coat of the Sheltie will need some grooming to maintain, not taking care with the coat could lead to matting and a lot of discomfort for your pup. weekly brushing at least is necessary! When the dog is moulting brushing should be done daily. You may choose to trim the feathering on the legs and tail to make it easier to manage.
