Pembroke Sheltie is a result of a cross between Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the Shetland sheepdog. This hybrid mix makes an excellent pet being a combination of Corgie and Sheltie. It has inherited tenderness, mellowness and the regal attitude from its parents and makes one of the caring parts of the family.
Temperament & Personality
The dog is a tremendous furry family member and makes an ideal pet for the first time pet owners. They are not very intelligent but are brave, loyal and lively. It is not a perfect watchdog and does not warn its master of an intruder, but it doesn’t hesitate to protect its family in a hard situation. Pembroke Sheltie tends to chase people and cars. This herding instinct is inherited from its parents and depending upon the inheritance, few dogs can be super active while few can develop a shy nature.
Appropriate training at an early age will make it comfortable with kids and other animals. Its inherited hunting instincts makes it essential to keep it strapped every time it is outside to ensure the safety of the dog and the owner. It comfortably fits into any type of family and home setting, provided it gets appropriate exercise. It has a double coat and adapts well in cold temperatures and moderately in temperate climates, additional care is required in hotter climatic conditions.
