Sheltie Colors  

Shelties can come in so many colors, it is worth looking at all the photos on this page.

All of the following dogs are past or present rescue dogs.

 

Blacks

Blues

Sables

Other

Bi-black
(Bear, a rescue boy)

A Bi-Black dog has just black and white on his body...no tan.  The white can be anywhere, and vary from a lot to one spot.  A bi-black has no tan at all.

Bi-Blue
(Birkie, a rescue boy)

A Bi-Blue has no tan on his body...just blue (gray really) black and white.  The blue, black and white can be anywhere and to any degree.   A Bi-Blue may or may not have blue eyes.

Sable
(Ricky, a rescue boy)

A sable usually will have 3 colors (brown, black and white) Many people mistakenly call this a Tri.  It is not.    This boy is a sable.

ben.jpg (22987 bytes)

Double Merle
(Ben, a rescue boy)

The result of breeding 2 dogs with a merle gene.    These dogs are usually deaf, and some are blind.  These dogs may have blue eyes.

angeltri.jpg (2823 bytes)

Tri-Color 
(Angel, a rescue girl)

A Tri-color dog is mostly black.  It will have tan on it's body somewhere.  Any tan hair on his body makes a Tri instead of a Bi-Black.

Blue Merle
"Candy" is a  rescue girl.
A Blue Merle must have tan on it's body to be a blue merle.    No tan makes it a Bi Blue.   Neither the Blue Merle nor the Bi Blue have the face mask the Sable does.

Sable
"Trudy", a blond sable, also called a "pure for sable"

sheyanne.jpg (9203 bytes)

Color Headed White

This is Sheyanne, a rescue girl. She is a Color Headed White.  (CHW)  She is mostly white, with the head of a Tri-Color dog. This is not at all the same as a double merle.  A CHW will have normal colored heads and  will have spots of color on the body, but be mostly white.

Dusty is a very muscular
rescue boy.  Dusty was renamed Sydney and has gone on to win many Agility awards.

Sable  

"Buster"....a rescue dog

This is another variation of a Sable Sheltie.   A shaded sable is still a sable, but with black tips on the coat.  If you look at the roots of the hair, you will see sable.  Note the familiar mask of a sable on his face.
