    Hi Zanny - I bred and showed shelties for many years until last christmas - when I retired my last breeding bitch to concentrate on my other breeds. I do miss my shelties though - my daughters used to do Junior Handling with them and obedience. One of my boys, a tricolour called Ace, used to be good at obedience but my teenage girls got to be teenagers and lost interest, so he went to live with a little girl who was starting out in obedience. He has fallen on his feet and found a new lease of life and is giving a lot of joy to his new mistress.

    I would like to get back into shelties again when I am too old to have the bigger breeds, but I have sadly lost my breeding line.

    I look forward to seeing many more pics of yours - I do miss my bunch. I bred a beautiful blue merle called Joker - seeing yours has reminded me of him.

    Lovely looking dogs. I had two rough collies at one time, and think they and the shelties are a most attractive breed of dog, and the blue merles have a special fascination for me

    Hi,
    I am new to this site and am a Sheltie owner.

    In my business I have taken quite a few photos of shelties, some I feel are quite stunning, my avitar is my own sheltie.

    If someone could explain how i do it i will try to post up some pics if anyone would like to see.

    I was raised by Shelties. My last sheltie, Phillip, passed two years ago in June. I'm in the market for a rescue sheltie now. Phil was an older dog when we adopted him, and he was so special, I would like to honor his memory by adopting another older sheltie.

    Here are the shelties that formed my life.

    I love shelties. They are IMHO, the best family dog going. I will be raising my kids with shelties as well.

    I think you will notice from the pics that US shelties are generally taller, and more "streamline" for lack of a better word than the original UK sheltie.

    At last some more sheltie lovers!

    Thank you for replying to my post, was beginning to think I was all alone.

    Our sheltie, Gillie, bought for my daughter will be 4 in May this year and I have to say I could have not asked for a better dog for her.

    He is fantastic and I ill when the time is right be getting another one, probably a rescue but they are very hard to come by, which in itself proves what wonderful dogs they are.

    Have you seen the painting I have just done of Gillie for my daughters 11th birthday, it was posted a few days ago in the photography and art section.

    Such lovely pictures and a wonderful breed. I have always found them a bit more sensitive like the CKCS that I love too. Do You???:?:

    Yes I suppose they are sensitive but I can not compare to the CKCS as I have never had one, met many in my work as an artist briefly, I do however own an ex-racing greyhound also who is extremely sensitive.

    I believe my mother used to work for a breeder of CKCS, I will ask her what she thinks.

    No biggy, just pretty much meant that I think when training they should be handled in a more gentle way than most.

    Again just love the breed.
