Shelties are wonderful family companions!
A Sheltie is:
Good with children
Shelties love to play,and are very
gentle creatures, that have the
patience for small children.

Not All Shelties like to swim, but
many enjoy boat rides, canoeing,
hiking & cross-country skiing with
Holly & Sarah; looking for minnows.
It is important to buy your Sheltie from a reputable breeder!

NEVER BUY A PUPPY FROM A PET SHOP!
Pet shops purchase puppies from “Puppy Mills” (often in the U.S.) for as little as $75.00
They are poor quality specimens, often riddled with disease and parasites that can be
transferred to humans, AND they can have many genetic defects.
Some people just can’t resist “the puppy in the pet shop window”, and will often pay
3 times as much money as the going rate for a quality, guaranteed specimen from
a reputable breeder!
