He is stunning! I love him! He's a Sheltie? I'm not very good being able to tell the different breeds, I thought he was a Collie. His coat is so beautiful.

Thanks everyone! He's a Sheltie. :)

Oh, and my boyfriend sold his car to a cash buyer. We all took pictures of ourselves with the money, because we'd never seen that much all at once before. lol :D

Yup, he's a sheltie. They look a lot like collies. The best way imo to tell them apart other than size (obviously) is the head shape. Most shelties have more of a stop.

So Collie's are bigger? What do you mean Shelties have more of a stop? Told you I'm not very good with breeds, but I'm thinking I love Shelties :D

Shelties are about... 14- 16 inches or so, though many get quite a bit bigger. They're called 'miniature collies' a lot which is really incorrect but I suppose if you were to describe one that's how you'd say they looked.

Like here's a smooth collie in profile: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/494505436/

And here's a sheltie: http://www.laureate.ca/Gidgit2yrs4.jpg

The stop is the kind of nose to forehead area. Collies have a very wedge shaped head where the forehead and the muzzle are basically one straight line. Shelties have a break there and a change in angles.

There are also some other differences proportion wise, but that's the main one I notice.

Lol, I'm horrible at explaining things.

I think shelties are actually much more common around than collies are. (At least here)

Sorry to hijack your thread!

No problem. :D

One other difference is that Collies don't come in black and white. They can be sable and white, tri colored, and blue merle only.

Sheltie's are typically 13-16 inches tall and about 15-25 pounds.

Collies are more like 22-26 inches tall and 50-75 pounds.

I think that by more stop, she means that they have a shorter snout.

Here is an example of a typical Sheltie face. http://www.echowyn.com/PuppyGallery/Puppies2004/Aspen.htm

Here are some champion Collies for comparison. http://www.markoscollies.com/champions.html

You can see the size difference in the pics too.

I hope that helps. :D


It does help, thanks bunches! :D

And he looks so much like Kai! I always wished I had the time to sit and show groom Trey when he was younger just to see how hairy he'd look.
