|The only Sheltie I ever knew well was one that thought I was delivering nuclear bombs instead of newspapers to her house, for the 4 years I had a paper route. While I don't know how well she had been trained by her owners, when I started my search for a dog, that was one breed I never considered because of that experience. In order for me to have considered a Sheltie, the dog would have had to be perfectly behaved and I would have had to fall in love. I realize that it doesn't seem fair, but that's the only way I could have had a Sheltie for my first dog.
However, that was just my experience and I am sure there are many, many wonderful and sweet Shelties out there - just as there are many laid-back, non-aggressive Rotties, Dobies and pitbulls out there. If your friend has the time to put into training an intelligent, energetic Sheltie, then I'm sure she will end up with a great pet!
