The Shetland Sheepdog, commonly known as the Sheltie, is an incredibly intelligent, often sensitive, bright, and affectionate breed. Its flowing locks come in black, blue merle, and sable, with white markings. Easily trainable, the Sheltie is known for its agility and obedience trials. The Sheltie comes from the Shetland Islands off of mainland Scotland.
Here, we pay homage to what a Sheltie owner would say is most characteristic of the breed—the Sheltie smile. So without further ado, we introduce five of the smiliest Shelties of Instagram.
