Performance dogs as friends for life

Welcome to Southside Shelties!

 
Welcome to Southside Shelties!  We are lovers of shelties and dog sports!  We are located in Northwest Indiana, about 45 minutes from Chicago.  Our goal is produce performance dogs with great temperaments and great personalities.  We want them to excel in whatever they choose to do -- agility, herding, dock diving, flyball, other dog sports, or simply being a great family companion!  We only have a handful of dogs, so of course they are family and just love to be around people!  All of our dogs are genetically health tested, and are clear of any genetic issues, so as to produce the healthiest puppies possible.

Shetland sheepdogs, more affectionately known as "shelties," are members of the herding group.  While many people think of them as small collies, or miniature "Lassies," shelties are a completely separate breed of dog.  Shelties are typically 13-16" tall, with weight proportionate to their height.  These little fluffballs can be considered high-spirited dogs, though this is what makes them such great performance dogs -- they aim to please and love to learn new things!  Shelties are very versatile dogs and can adapt to many situations.
