Shetland Sheepdogs, also known as Shelties, were originally bred as herding dogs. Loyal, affectionate, and responsive to their owner, they are now popular as pets and companions. Inexperienced pet owners, those planning to acquire their first pet, and older children looking for pet care information will find Barron's Complete Pet Owner's Manuals especially helpful and informative. Each title features approximately 70 color photos and offers practical advice on purchasing, housing, feeding, health care--and where applicable, grooming and training pets. Books cover every popular dog and cat breed, bird varieties, hamsters and other small caged animals, fish varieties for aquarium hobbyists, terrarium pets, and even reptiles, amphibians, and exotics. Each manual is individually written by an expert--a trainer, breeder, veterinarian, or other animal specialist. All books have color photos, and most also have instructive line illustrations.
