Oh, I totally understand. Sometimes I feel the need to explain to people that not all Shelties are barking neurotic messes. lol

I've seen a few around. Usually owned by old men. Most people have no idea what they are. People always ask if they are lab crosses.

Yeah. I get it all the time. Bandit doesn't really have a collie shaped head. His head is shaped more like a golden retrievers plus they have flopped over ears which must make them goldens or labs. It makes me giggle.

That's funny, because most people (outside the dog community) think my Sheltie is a Border Collie. Go figure!

Here in Scotland weve already had the BCs overpopularity and is was very sad. Lots of very neurotic under-exercised and understimulated dogs in rescues. Now nearly every 2nd dog i see is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, rescues are brimming with them. Worryingly lots owned by young men as a first dog for the wrong reasons. They have sweet natures with people but I have seen lots of dog aggression. Once they realise that they are very high energy dogs they are abandoned or passed on. Noticed that the GSDs have been declining in numbers, i hardly ever see them. In all my years training i cant recall seeing a single problem Sheltie.
