Shetland Sheepdogs, or 'Shelties'
as they are often called, resemble a Collie in miniature, though Shelties
are not 'miniature' or 'toy' Collies. The breed originated
on the Shetland Islands, off the
northeast coast of Scotland. Over the years, the breed was developed
as an all-purpose farm dog, guard dog and affectionate and loyal companion.
As a sheltie breeder in Georgia (GA), Spring Lake Shelties is a small
breeding facility that breeds and sells AKC quality dogs. All of our
dogs stay in the house and are members of the family. We pamper our
dogs and puppies. (Click here for current available Sheltie
puppies for sale.)
