Sheltie Puppies From Past Litters

If you were looking for available puppies, go to the puppies for sale page.

When first born, these little guys are anywhere from 6-9 oz generally. At least for me. They are smooth coated, with eyes and ears still sealed shut. They look more like mice or hamsters than puppies.

As they mature their coat grows a little longer but still pretty smooth. When their eyes open, they don't always have that melt your heart expression.

Actually, some of them look down right pissed off. Kinda like the little guy just below, don't cha think?

They still prefer their dam's attention to mine, which isn't surprising at that age.

At three weeks they are moving about beginning to explore their new world. By Five weeks they look and act like puppies. By eight weeks they are irresistible!

Looking and Acting Like REAL Sheltie Puppies!

One of these dudes has decided to take a flying leap... literally!

This little fellow was protesting being incarcerated. And what a racket he made! He has since turned into a beautiful boy with springs on his feet and energy to spare. Wish I could bottle it.

His coloring is called sable merle, which is not too common as it is difficult to show dogs with this coat color and win. If they are born with blue eyes it is considered a disqualification. Not that it affects their sight or health, just a conformation "thing".

An Adorable Sheltie From Far Far Away. Too Cute To Resist!

Yankee Shelties Living In Their New Homes

At 8 weeks or older, they go to their new homes and I look forward to photos sent by their families. Occasionally one will stay with me while their family vacations and it gives me the opportunity to see what I've actually accomplished (or not) with my breeding program.

Sometimes there is the fun playdate where a bunch of us get together.

They are each such individuals in look and personality, but for the most part I am happy with the results. I hope you enjoy these photos of Sheltie puppies from Yankee Kennels.
