    I was told this by some very reputable dog people that inbreeding will cause an aggressive dog. I would call the breeder
    also and ask many questions. She may have more like your sheltie.
    Hopefully all turns out well for you.

    I also agree that a veterinary behaviorist is the way to go with such serious issues. Also, be sure that a full thyroid panel (preferably done by HemoPet) is included in the blood work as agression is a very common symptom of hypothyroidism.
