Known as a devoted and docile dog with keen intelligence and understanding, the Shetland Sheepdog is one of the most successful obedience breeds. This rough-coated, longhaired herding dog descended from the Border Collie of Scotland. Intensely loyal, affectionate and responsive, the Sheltie is an excellent family dog. He thrives on farms but adapts to many living situations if provided adequate exercise. His dense double coat requires regular grooming.
