He was the smallest of the litter and if he stays small I'm fine with that! I just don't want him to get fat!
I am certainly no expert on sheltie growth. My guesstimate of 14-15'' was based off the chart. That is the only chart I've ever seen.
Your breeder should know her lines better than anyone else, so maybe for her lines that is undersize?
I know my breeder told me my puppy would most likely be 13-14 inches and she grew to be 13.5 inches, so the breeder was spot on.
