    Patti,
    Please, please, please take your little sheltie to obedience classes! This is the first step to building confidence! That is the key ingredient you are currently lacking. I recently adopted a four-year-old sheltie that was not socialized. He was was terrified of cars, trucks, strollers, other people, and dogs! I went through 2 beginner obedience classes and got a Companion Dog Certificatication or CDC title on him. It is the BEST investment I ever made. Obedience gives the dog confidence and strengthens the bond you have with them. Good luck and let us know your progress...
