Finding a Sheltie Pup

Post by Ccalde14 » Sun Aug 05, 2018 2:56 pm

Hello everyone,

I live in Scotland and I'm having difficulty finding a breeder that will have Sheltie pups within the next year. I can't believe how rare these beautiful little dogs have become. My Nan had a Sheltie when I was growing up and we still reminise about what a great dog he was. I currently have a female Pommeranian (9 years old). I really want a Sheltie that I can train for agility and enter into competitions.

Does anyone have advice on good breeders in Scotland or Northern England? I would also be interested in anyone that has introduced a Sheltie to their Pomeranian too.

Thanks so much,
Charlene.

I'm really shocked to hear Shelties are that rare as well. Is it like that elsewhere in the world as well?

I was able to find 5 Sheltie breeders in Scotland, although you'll need to (and may have already) contact them individually to find out if litters are on the cards. You could also look further afield - see our entire UK listings recently updated: https://www.sheltieplanet.com/shetland- ... ers-uk.php

Good luck! Let us know if you have success.

Australian here. It look me many phone calls, visits to breeders and luck really to find a Sheltie puppy. It took me over 5 months and by chance found the perfect puppy for us. We've had Freya now for about 5 weeks. She's settling in wonderfully. My adult daughters dogs play nicely with her and even our cats our coming around. She just wants to play with everybody.

Thanks everyone. I managed to get on a waiting list in England and now have my beautiful Sheltie boy. He was worth the wait!
