The Shetland Sheepdog is a small but affectionate dog.  He needs a full groom on his coat as he has extremely long hair.  He needs a reasonable amount of exercise and not much food.  He is a small version of the Rough Collie.  He normally comes in a tan colour with a white chest.  He makes an ideal companion for an elderly person.  He is also good with families, but still acts as a working dog.
