I am the 7th sheltie for my human.

and yes, we are not quiet....ever!!
and carefull socialization is very important when we are young, we can be shy.and when we get scared, we run.

7 shelties in my life. some from show lines, and some from working lines. 1 was a rescue from an abusive home.they all were very much into their people, and not so much into other people. very loving and loyal. very playful, and a lot tougher then the size would lead you to believe. smart, and fast learners. but could easily panic in large crowds or very noisy places. and, when panicked,they run.

grooming isnt a real big issue, shedding isnt bad if brushed weekly. my collie is much worse.

firefly, I am the 7th sheltie my mom has owned, and granted she never had kids, but only 1 of her dogs really liked kids.

she has known some newfies, and even they have a breaking point, but one that touchy could be really scarey around ill mannered children

thinking never heard of a quiet sheltie
shy yes. but quiet???? hummmmm

the very first sheltie I had I took out of a bad home. he was never beaten, but the humans fought, I mean like threw lamps at each other type fought. he was about a year old.
when my husband moved in with me, it took him 3 months to gain the trust of that dog. he would get up to go to the bathroom and apollo ran behind the couch.

how they are raised and bred should be a major concern, but given a good healthy start, they can be excelent and all most anything you would want them to do

shelties are a breed with 2 "types" the more show lines, the finer boned and silky hair. more working lines a little heavier and slightly shorted coated.


and please dont shave shelties! our hair is our pride!

shelties?? someone barking about shelties??
I am the 7th one my human has had. dont let the coat fool you, it is very easy to maintain. the fine hairs by the ears, as was already mentioned is the only really bad spot. we are surprisingly tough for our size. and come in a mulitude of colors.
we age fast, agile,turn on a dime. I love when the collie chases me and I make him crash into something. and I love taking naps with my peeps.

and we do love the sound of our own bark, and do it often.

I have owned shelties most of my life, 7 to be exact
and have never thought they were a good breed for service work. you may fine a rare one that will, but over all as a breed, not so much
