From the Inside Flap:
The Complete Shetland Sheepdog
The Shetland Sheepdog takes its name from its native home ? the Shetland Isles, off the north-east coast of Scotland. Dogs resembling miniature collies were used to drive sheep back into the hills when they broke through the stone walls which protected the ?toons? or crofts of the islanders. Working over rough terrain and exposed to the full force of the Atlantic gales, the Sheltie or ?toonie dog? developed into a tough, agile dog with a long, weather-resistant coat. Today, the Sheltie is highly-prized as a glamorous show dog and a loving companion. In this highly comprehensive book of the breed, the author gives the benefit of her unparalleled expertise to offer detailed advice and information on all aspects of caring for a Shetland Sheepdog. Starting with choosing a puppy, she outlines the puppy's requirements in terms of diet and exercise, and gives an overall picture of the needs of an adult dog. There is guidance on coat care and presentation in the show ring, as well as an in-depth analysis of the breed standard. For the specialist, there is a section on breeding and whelping a litter. Illustrated with more than 100 colour and black and white photographs, this is an essential reference for all Sheltie fans.
