Golden Sheltie


The Golden Sheltie is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Sheltie and the Golden Retriever. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Dublin, the Golden Sheltie (Golden Retriever / Shetland Sheepdog hybrid) at about 6? months old. His owner states, "At close to 7 months, he is about 35 lbs. He is a very active pup…runs with and chases other dogs in the park and also very good at retrieving sticks and balls. He definitely does shed but did so noticeably more for about 2 weeks in April – May. His ears sometimes flop over and sometimes stick straight up."
