I was given a 4 y.o. Sheltie male. He is purebred, entire, and has been used for breeding. He's such a mellow dog! When I took him to be groomed, the groomer was astonished at how well-behaved he was. His previous owner has a farm and has been trying to give him to me for over a year...and one weekend I took him home to see if I could find him a home. I did! Mine! Not planned, but I couldn't part with him. I absolutely love this dog, and I'm so glad to have found a forum where I can find out more about the breed. And I almost forgot! His name is Chance. I decided to take a chance on Chance. LOL!
