Thanks everyone, you all confirmed my suspicions. I'm only annoyed that the lady wasn't honest with me, but that's very common here. I could have gotten an AKC papered pedigreed Sheltie with parents from New York, but the prices are ridiculous. I only wanted a Sheltie for the smaller size, as we rent our house. The Collie was a lot smaller than I thought she'd be and the "sheltie" father was not all that much smaller than her. I do hope that he retains that Sheltie/Collie look, even though he seems mixed.
