History Of The Sheltie
The Shetland Sheepdog, or more commonly referred to as The Sheltie, is a relative newcomer in the world of purebred dogs. Originating in the Shetland Islands, the breed was first registered in 1908 and was then recognized by kennel clubs in 1909.
First registered as a Shetland Collie, the name was then changed to Shetland Sheepdog because of objections by Collie fanciers. Though the Sheltie was not not officially recognized until later, there were some visitors to the islands describing the dogs as early as 1844.
