The Shetland Sheepdog (aka the Sheltie) has many traits. Here are three fun traits. These silly behaviors certainly are entertaining and have a way of lifting your spirits.
The Sheltie Spin – Just like a spinning top (except with jumping and barking) the Sheltie will go around and around in a circle. This usually happens when a Sheltie is excited.
The Sheltie Smile – Sometimes when a Shelties mouth hang open a certain way, it gives the impression of a smile, possibly due to their long noses.
Sheltie Talk – Shelties sometimes make pretty interesting vocal noises. Some strange and some so beautiful it’s as if they are singing.
Message from a Sheltie mom – These traits can sometimes be seen in other breeds. I remember having a dog, many years ago, who sounded like she said Mama. My mother got her at an auction and we never knew what breed (or breeds) she was.
Of the three of these traits I love when Misty Blue makes her funny sounds. Sometimes when she doesn’t want to do something I am asking of her she will moan.
