I have a Sheltie named Butch. He and his friend Double the Bubble are pals forever lasting. DTB {Double the Bubble} is a Doberman Pinscher, Sheltie, German Shepard, and Cocker Spaniel mix. How could you hate cockers?

I have a 6 year old Shetland Sheepdog named Bosley. When I got him(from my dads friend), he didn't even know how to sit! But now, he knows how to sit, stay, lie down, roll over, play dead, wave shake and high five, and a whole bunch of other things! He is also a trained guard dog and he has saved my life four times already. I used to love German Shepherds and that used to be the only dog that I ever wanted. Well, now that I have a Sheltie, that's the only dog that I'm happy with and I would probably never want any other breed. The Sheltie is the best pet to own and I love Bosley sooo much! (:

I had a shetland sheepdog and she was so wonderful! She could bring a smile to anyones face, that's what I love about her. Most of the stories I hear about shelties is that they are so playful but mine is actually really calm. Her favorite time of the year was winter because she got to play in the snow. :) Whenever I saw her, her face was covered in snow. The sad thing is that 2 days ago she died. I'm not sure what happened to her but she is no longer with us. I will never forget her, she meant everthing to me. I am hoping that soon I can either get another sheltie or an astralian shepherd

I live with 2 adorable shelties. They love to catch a frisbee, chase a ball and do tricks. If I get busy and don't give them something to do for a few days then they'll let me know by chewing my shoes. They are a great dog to play with, they like to be silly and do tricks, anything for food!! Wonderful begging eyes that you have to be careful of otherwise you'll be treating them all day. They love their food and their people!
