The Wonderful World of Sheltie Colours

For those of you new to Shelties, or looking for your first, this will introduce you to each of the natural Sheltie colours. You will find an example (or two) of each as a PI Sheltie.

All Shelties have the white "bib", white feet, and a white tip on the tail

Sable
Sable is the most common colour of Sheltie, and can range in shade from golden to mahogany, with varying amounts of white.



Tricolour
Predominately black body, with tan points on the face and legs, and varying amounts of white


Blue Merle
Grey-ish blue body with black splashes (called "merling"), tan points on the face and legs, and varying amounts of white. Shades of blue can range from a clear silvery blue to steel gray


Bi-Black
Black body with white markings


Bi-Blue Merle
Like a blue merle without the tan points


Sable Merle
Sables, ranging in colour from golden to mahogany, with black splashes ("merling") and varying shades of white


Colour-Headed White
Any of the above colours with a predominately white body [Please note: When ordering this colour, please specify base colour, i.e. "colour-headed white sable merle"]
