🐕✨Shetland Sheepdog✨🐕
Shetland Sheepdog is one of the breeds originating from Scotland's Shetland Islands. It has a similar appearance to Collie, but it is smaller. Shetland Sheepdog has a nickname of (Sheltie).
Its history is quite old, it is comparable to the history of Scottish pasture dogs and is thought to share its origins with Rough Collie and Border Collie which are also sheep dogs in the Scottish province. The weather conditions were severe and the desolate Shetland Islands had limited effective land as meadow.
It was inevitable that livestock became miniaturized in an environment where feed was insufficient. As a result, (Shetland Sheepdog) is half the size of Scotland. It is thought that Shetland / Sheepdog has also been miniaturized to accommodate the environment or miniaturized corresponding to small livestock. On this island where the population was low and there were few fences separating the pasture land from the farmland, the existence of a skilled livestock dog managing livestock movement was indispensable. (The type of livestock) that had been managed by Shetland Sheepdog was not only sheep, but a variety of cattle, pigs, chickens, etc., and it was useful as a versatile dog. According to one theory, small dogs with the same ancestor as Scotland's Border Collie adapted to this land, and in the days when this land was under Viking, they brought in from the Scandinavian region, such as Samoyed It is said that the one with the spitz system blood blended is the prototype. By the end of the nineteenth century, when the fleet of the British navy came to visit this island for exercises, these puppies became popularly brought to the mainland of Britain. (Shetland · Sheepdog) was introduced to the UK, it is a dog that feels the influence of Spaniel, and the current Shetland Sheepdog is created to prevent it from being large while mating Rough Collie etc . It is also thought that King, Charles Spaniel and Pomeranian blood are contained. Initially the name Shetland Collie was generalized, and in 1909 the Kennel Club of England was officially recognized under this name, but after several protests from Corrie's breeder group, it was changed to the current name. Contrary to its name, now it is non mainstream as a sheep dog, it is a smart and faithful dog, so it is loved around the world as a (family dog).
