Despite appearances, the Shetland sheepdog is not a miniature version of the collie. It is a distinct breed that served at watchdogs and herders in the Shetland Islands off the coast of Scotland. Approved by the American Canine Association, this book uses accessible text and adorable full-color photographs to teach students about the Sheltie, including what to feed it, how to keep it clean and healthy, when it should be seen by a veterinarian, and any special considerations this breed requires. A Note to Parents addresses the importance of neutering and spaying, microchipping, checking to see if a dog license is required, and adopting from a shelter or rescue group. Also, a Read About Dogs section directs students to books and websites with additional information.
