It is said that the Sloughi (Arabian Greyhound), is the most intelligent hound.

History

Originally from North Africa and probably a descendant of the ancient “Egyptian hound”, it is said that the Sloughi took its name from the town of Sloughia en Túnez. Sus orígenes exactos no están claros, but it is known that it was used for centuries by the Berber people and the Bedouin tribes to hunt gazelles, jackals, foxes and hares. In fact, thanks to its speed and resistance, podía perseguir a la caza en grandes extensiones de desierto, which explains why it was the favorite dog of nomads. His sense of observation and his highly developed instinct also made him - and make him- an excellent herding dog. Last, it was also a domestic animal for them, ya que se le permitía dormir con ellos en la tienda por la noche. Incluso lo cubrieron con una manta para protegerlo del frío.

The first Sloughis arrived in Europe in the mid-nineteenth century, after the conquest of Algeria by France. The breed was recognized by the Federation Cynologique Internationale (FCI) in 1934. World War II halted its development, ya que muchos criadores tuvieron que aplicar la eutanasia a sus animales por falta de alimentos o exportarlos a países que se salvaron del conflicto. The Sloughi it then became extremely rare until the end of the Algerian war (1954-1962), cuando los soldados franceses trajeron a su país algunos ejemplares de la raza, which relaunched its expansion into European territory.

Tagiurie el Sian it was the first Sloughi that arrived in the United States in 1973. Originario de Túnez, crossed the Atlantic with his owners Kaethe y Carl Rodarty. Unfortunately, due to his age and lack of females, could not have offspring. In fact, la raza no se estableció realmente en el país hasta 1979, When Carole Cioce imported two Sloughis from Germany to California.

La mayoría de los representantes de la raza en América del Norte descienden hoy en día de individuos importados de países europeos (France, Netherlands, Germany, etc.), aunque algunos proceden directamente del norte de África, especially from Algeria, Libia y Túnez.

The breed was recognized by the United Kennel Club (UKC) in 1995, y el otro organismo de referencia del país, the American Kennel Club (AKC), did the same in 2016. El Canadian Kennel Club (CKC), on the other hand, has not yet taken the step.
La popularidad del CKC en el país vecino no es ciertamente una razón para que lo haga. The Sloughi It is one of the rarest dog breeds in the United States, quedando en último lugar en 2018 en el ranking establecido por el AKC en función del número de nacimientos anuales registrados en la organización.

In fact, the Sloughi It is now one of the rarest breeds of sighthounds in the world. In France, occur between 30 and 50 registrations per year in the Livre des Origines Français (LOF). The figure has been relatively stable since the middle of the years 80, while at the beginning of that decade it was rather twice. Compared, every year they are born around 1.400 hounds Whippet. In Great Britain, race is even confidential, ya que algunos años no se registra ningún nacimiento en el prestigioso Kennel Club, el organismo canino de referencia del país.

The Sloughi también está en peligro de extinción en los países del Magreb. Su número no deja de disminuir, mainly due to the scarcity and protection of certain species it hunts and the sedentarization of the Bedouin tribes, who need your help less and less to protect their herds.

In the news, Marruecos cuenta con el mayor número de Sloughis of the world. Es difícil saber el número exacto, but specialists estimate that the population is about 600 individuals.

Physical characteristics

The Sloughi it is one of the largest dog breeds. Like the other races of Sighthounds, looks slim and athletic. This is due to their thin and tight skin, to his short coat, fine and closed, to his lean musculature and his very pronounced bone structure. Its general appearance is that of a noble dog, very elegant and stylish, but specially built for speed.

His chest is wide, encased by flat ribs, long and slightly curved on the back third of the chest. The belly is tight and the back is short, almost horizontal between the withers and the hips. Straight legs, Bony and muscular are an important part of the dog's formidable speed.

Profile, the head is long and thin. Seen from above, the skull is wide. Tapers to the end formed by the nose, reminiscent of the shape of a valley. The nose is black and slightly descending, and the nostrils are wide open.

The eyes are large and dark, with a soft and melancholy look. The edge of the eyelids is pigmented. Las orejas son caídas, triangular in shape and slightly rounded at the tips. La mandíbula es fuerte y regular.

Los colores del pelaje varían de arena clara a rojiza, with or without black mask or cape. The most common are the black sand mask and the brindle sand.

Last, sexual dimorphism is not very pronounced, since the males are usually not more than 10 cm taller than females, which is modest compared to the size of the animal.

Size and weight

▷ Male size: 66 a 72 cm.
▷ female size: 64 a 69 cm.
▷ Male weight: 20-25 kg
▷ female weight: 19-22 kg

Character and skills

Although it is not very demonstrative, the Sloughi he is devoted and loyal, and tends to be a single owner dog. When they join their owner, is for all the life, por lo que es muy difícil que se unan a otra familia si su dueño es abandonado o muere.

They get along well with children, but it is better if they are of a certain age and have learned to interact with an animal. In fact, given its size, podría empujar involuntariamente a uno más pequeño, or forcefully push away an older one who disrespects you. In any case, whatever the race and the degree of proximity, a small child should never be left alone with a dog.

Their sociability with humans is often limited to family members. With strangers, they are much more reserved, and will bravely defend their own if they feel threatened in any way.

In more general terms, can easily become anxious when faced with new situations. Thus, it is essential to socialize him as soon as possible to prevent him from becoming a fearful and / or unnecessarily aggressive dog.

You can also live with animals of other species (cats, rodents, etc.), as long as they grew up together and you consider them part of your family. On the other hand, as his hunting instinct is highly developed, the subsequent introduction of another animal into the home where you live can be problematic.

As for living under the same roof as a partner, this coexistence does not usually pose problems if you have grown up with him. Otherwise, it all depends on the size of the newcomer. Yes it's small, is likely to be regarded as prey. From his past as a hunter and rancher, preserves the need for space and exercise. Therefore, necesita al menos una hora de ejercicio físico al día para deshacerse de su exceso de energía y estar equilibrado. Therefore, they are ideal candidates for dog sports, starting, of course, for the tests intended for sighthounds (racing in cinodromes, decoy chase…). It is also an ideal breed of dog for an athlete, who likes to accompany on their outings; canicross and cani-VTT are activities perfectly adapted to it, and certainly more recommendable than sighthound races. On the other hand, having a strong hunting instinct, he can chase any small animals he meets at any time, especially cats. Therefore, it is essential that you obey the call, and in any case it is better to carry him on a leash during walks, to avoid any risk of leakage. In fact, once a Sloughi olido has a hold, no longer really responsive to his master's instructions, so it is extremely difficult to make him return.

This is all the more true since, even with a lot of training, is often far from being the most obedient dog in the world. What's more, cannot be trusted to keep a low profile if reprimanded: given his strong character, sería todo lo contrario. Therefore, it is up to the owner to be firm from an early age, so as not to be dominated by his imposing companion.

The great need for exercise of the Arabian Greyhound and its size make, although I rarely bark (even in the presence of strangers), not really adapted to living in a flat. However, can live in an apartment, siempre que se le saque varias veces al día y pueda satisfacer su necesidad de ejercicio. A house is still preferable. However, es importante asegurarse de que el jardín esté bien vallado, since the Sloughi is naturally elusive. El uso de una valla eléctrica subterránea no sería una solución viable con un perro así, ya que la molestia de los impulsos eléctricos sería menos fuerte que su determinación de huir y seguir quién sabe qué rastro. On the other hand, although I tolerate loneliness relatively well, it is not convenient that I live outside. In fact, su corto y fino pelaje le hace muy sensible al frío, and he needs to bond with his humans anyway, to whom he is more attached than sometimes is thought.

Education

The Sloughi es un perro tímido y se asusta fácilmente con lo que no conoce. Therefore, their socialization should take place from a very young age, when it is most malleable, para que se enfrente al máximo número de personas y situaciones y aprenda a adoptar los comportamientos adecuados en todas las circunstancias, to become a perfectly balanced adult.

You should also put him in contact with other animals, especially with cats, rodents and other small animals, to try to prevent him from seeing them as prey when he later crosses paths with them.

With his great intelligence and keen sense of observation, learns quickly… if you want. In fact, obedience is not his strong point: It is not a dog that strives to satisfy or even anticipate the requests of its master. Therefore, you need to be firm in your education, but also show patience, to respect his character. Intentar entrar a la fuerza sólo podría ser perjudicial para el futuro, since it is a proud and sensitive animal, who does not appreciate reprimands. His temperament makes him an ideal client for the positive reinforcement dog training method, and sweets are usually the key to success.

Last, teaching your dog to remember is especially important to be able to enjoy walks outdoors with peace of mind, since the Sloughi retains a strong predatory instinct and, therefore, can launch itself at any time in pursuit of an animal that it considers prey. Esto es aún más cierto porque, given its maximum speed, es muy difícil alcanzarlo.

Health

The Sloughi it is a healthy breed of dog. Has a low risk of inherited diseases and a longer life expectancy than other dogs of the same size.

However, are prone to injury while running and are more prone to certain ailments.

This is the case, in particular, of the progressive retinal atrophy of APR-RCD type (rod and cone dysplasia), an inherited disease that causes a malformation of the retina: the puppy's eyesight deteriorates from 6 months old and, usually, goes completely blind before the year. There is a blood test that can determine whether or not an individual is a carrier of the gene responsible for this disease. Therefore, before adopting a representative of this breed, it is recommended to do the test, to avoid any risk at this level. Of course, knowing that it is a hereditary disease, un buen criador no cría a un individuo portador del gen.

Like all large dog breeds, it is also more prone to síndrome de dilatación-torsión del estómago. This condition is an absolute emergency, as it is likely to die if not treated by a vet very quickly.

What's more, como la mayoría de las razas de “Sighthounds”, the Sloughi is especially sensitive to anesthesia and medications. Thus, it is advisable to turn to a veterinarian who knows the specificities of these dogs in this regard.

Otra particularidad de este perro es su altísima tolerancia al dolor, por lo que a veces es difícil detectar que está sufriendo. Therefore, be especially attentive to any change in behavior that may betray a health problem.

Last, debido a sus orígenes y a su pelaje, the Sloughi no es una raza de clima frío. Thus, when temperatures are low, it is important to avoid spending too much time outside and to cover it with a suitable coat for dogs.

Life expectancy

12 years

Grooming

The Sloughi is the archetype of easy-care dog.

Brushing his short coat once or twice a week with a soft brush or brushing glove is perfectly sufficient to remove dead hairs and keep his coat clean.. Su muda es aún más limitada ya que, unlike many other breeds, does not suffer seasonal molts.

What's more, the coat is self-cleaning, so it does not give off bad odors and it is not necessary to wash it regularly. Under normal circumstances, two or three times a year is more than enough, but, of course, you should not hesitate to bathe your dog if he has become very dirty and / or if harmful substances have spread through his coat.

As in any race, oral hygiene is very important and should not be neglected. The toothbrush is the most effective accessory to prevent the accumulation of tartar, fortalecer las encías y evitar el mal aliento.

What's more, aunque su perro no corre especial riesgo de sufrir infecciones de oído, despite the dangling shape of his ears, es necesario inspeccionar y limpiar sus oídos al menos una vez a la semana. This weekly session is also an opportunity to review - and if necessary clean- the eyes.

Last, natural wear and tear is usually enough to trim your claws. However, when you get older and / or less active, they can be too long, and then they can annoy or even hurt you. In this case, it is advisable to trim them with a special file or with a claw trimmer.

As in the case of any dog, the sooner you get used to the different manipulations that your care entails, the less likely you are to have problems later.

Food

The diet of the Sloughi should consist primarily of lean meat, rice and vegetables. It is preferable to choose a quality food, either in the form of industrial croquettes, pate or homemade food. La cantidad que se debe dar varía según el tamaño, la edad y la actividad física del animal. By the way, don't be fooled by its slim look and slightly visible ribs: esto forma parte de sus características físicas y no es en absoluto un signo de que esté mal alimentado. No need to worry about it, sino que lo anormal sería lo contrario.

In general, the more effort and activity your dog makes, más alimento necesitará para compensar la pérdida de energía. It is advisable to divide it into at least two meals, one in the morning and one at night, to reduce the likelihood of digestive problems such as stomach bloating or distention.

Para evitar esto último, las comidas deben realizarse en un lugar tranquilo y a una hora de distancia de los paseos o de cualquier actividad física intensa.

Last, as in the case of all dogs, es esencial garantizar la disponibilidad de agua fresca durante todo el día.

Use

Known as the “lord of the dogs” en la cultura marroquí, the Sloughi has long been appreciated for its hunting skills, agility, endurance and speed. It can reach a speed of up to 55 km / h along 300 m, to the point that there is an Arabic saying that says “when a Sloughi see a gazelle pluck a blade of grass, it will be at your height before you finish chewing it”.

En el norte de África, where is he from, It was mainly used as a guard dog to protect herds, así como para cazar liebres, foxes, jackals or gazelles.

However, in 1844, a French law prohibited hunting with Sighthounds and it was applied in the Maghreb territories that became part of France in the 19th century.

Since 2004, la caza con galgos vuelve a estar permitida en algunos países del Magreb, but under certain conditions. However, is still banned in Europe, except for Spain.

In United States, has sometimes been used to hunt coyotes.

In their homelands, the Sloughi It is still used by nomads as a guard dog for their herds, although this practice tends to disappear as tribes settle.

Su lealtad y su inquebrantable devoción a su amo también los convierten en muy buenos perros de compañía, as long as their families are able to meet their great need for exercise.

Last, his lean and athletic nature makes him a good competitor in racing and sight pursuit events, although it is not as fast as a “Greyhound”.

Price “Sloughi (Arabian Greyhound)”

The price of a puppy Sloughi ranges between 900 and 1300 EUR. The price of a copy depends on its conformity with the standard, of the reputation of his lineage, of the prestige of the kennel and also of its sex: females are considerably more expensive than males.

It is also possible to import a Arabian Greyhound directamente del norte de África. The purchase price is more affordable (between 500 and 750 EUR), but you must respect the regulations regarding the importation of a dog from abroad, and transport costs and administrative fees are added to the purchase price.

Adopting a Sloughi It can also be done through specialized retired greyhound associations. Many owners decide to part with their Sloughi when they can no longer compete. Sometimes they are also abandoned by owners who are not sufficiently informed of their needs. (sobre todo en cuanto a la actividad física) and they are not able to take proper care of them. Thus, these associations try to offer a second life to the greyhounds they host, allowing them to find a new family.

History

A versatile hunting dog that has been used not only for aiming, but also to throw and recover, the Saint Germain Pointer can work with a variety of hunting, including rabbits and pheasants. A diferencia de la mayoría de los perros de caza, traditionally, esta raza ha sido popular en las exposiciones y ha sido criada para tener una apariencia muy uniforme y específica.

Originally bred in France mixing English Pointer with the French Pointing Dog - Gascogne type, This breed is believed to have developed in the early 1830 and claims to have a very elegant heritage. King Charles X of France was given two dogs English Pointer who were very talented hunters. The female, call miss, she was raised with a dog Braque Francais local, and the legacy of Saint Germain Pointer started. Initially, the breed was called Compiegne Pointers due to the location of the kennels in which they were raised, but this name was later altered when the kennels were moved to the region of Saint Germain. Many of the dogs produced were shown at dog shows throughout France and, at that time, they were the race of Pointer más mostrada en su país natal.

The race Saint Germain Pointer was initially very popular and in 1913 se formó un club que tenía por objeto aumentar su prevalencia en Francia, así como mejorar la raza. Unfortunately, the size of the breed's population Saint Germain Pointer was greatly reduced in every world war. They have never fully recovered from the drastic decline in population size that occurred in the first half of the 20th century., but they are still a breed that has a loyal follower and are not in danger of extinction today.

In recent years, the English Pointer enter the genetic pool of Saint Germain Pointer para aumentar su número y añadir algo de diversidad genética. Even though few, if there is any, of the breed members have been exported internationally, the UKC granted full recognition to the breed in 2006 within your group of hunting dogs.

Physical characteristics

Braco Saint Germain

The appearance of Saint Germain Pointer is particularly important for breeders, although it is mainly a hunting dog. Historically, han participado en un gran número de exposiciones caninas francesas. Breed members must be of medium build, with good muscles and heavy bones. The dog's skull should be round and the same length as its muzzle.

Your pink nose should have wide open nostrils, while your big golden eyes should show a placid and relaxed expression. Their ears are curved at the tip and should not reach beyond eye level. The shoulders of the Saint Germain Pointer they are impressively long and their limbs must be robust and heavy. They have a broad chest and a straight back, although your rump will bow slightly. The dog's sharp tail is carried at a distinctive horizontal angle when in motion.

The males measure between 56 and 62 height cm, while the smaller females reach heights between 53 and 60 cm.. La mayoría de los miembros de la raza pesarán entre 18 and 27 kg.

Character and skills

While it is true that Saint Germain Pointer has traditionally excelled on the show floor, is primarily a hunting dog and, as such, has the character expected of a working animal. This breed is easy to train and loves to be kept active and given a task to do. They must have a “soft mouth”, meaning they do not hurt or harm the prey they retrieve. They also tend to work in packs, which means that they normally get along with other dogs. Although it is undeniable that they have a natural instinct to chase small animals, anecdotally they get along well with the small pets in their house that they have been introduced to since childhood.

The Saint Germain Pointer es realmente un perro de familia y lo hace mejor cuando se le mantiene en el interior con compañía humana. Es particularmente afectuoso con aquellos en quienes confía y se vinculará estrechamente con cada miembro de su familia. No son típicamente una raza que muestre alguna agresión, which means they are adapted to children, aunque no serían buenos perros guardianes. While it is true that this breed will be willing to befriend any child it meets, Caution is advised with very young children who may not be able to resist brisk greetings and rowdy play!

Education

More than many other dog breeds, the Saint Germain Pointer can be a real treat to train. Es un perro dispuesto a complacer a su amo y tiene la inteligencia para completar la mayoría de las tareas que se le encomienden con relativa facilidad. Trainers will be most successful when they focus on the breed's most natural behaviors, like recovery.

It is often said that the Saint Germain Pointer it is a hardy dog ​​that is much less sensitive than other closely related breeds. Los adiestradores tienen la opción de utilizar métodos más firmes de lo que cabría esperar, However, will continue to achieve the best results with the use of positive reinforcement techniques (instead of negatives).

Exercise

Not far behind when it comes to exercise, the Saint Germain Pointer is a dog that loves to be out of the house. Tiene una gran resistencia cuando trabaja y es capaz de recorrer grandes distancias durante largos períodos de tiempo sin parecer cansarse. Si se le mantiene únicamente como animal de compañía, los propietarios deben ser capaces de proporcionar una o dos horas de ejercicio sólido cada día y también deben mantener al perro estimulado con diversos juegos y sesiones de entrenamiento.

Any attempt to keep this breed in a small apartment or house or to exercise it for less time than recommended, probablemente conducirá a un perro frustrado que se convertirá en una mascota difícil. Anxiety is likely to develop in these situations, hyperactivity and destructive behaviors.

Health

Unfortunately, there is no specific information on the health of the Saint Germain Pointer, and to date there have been no studies on the breed. A working dog, it is generally accepted as a hardy breed. El dueño prudente estaría atento a estas posibles condiciones de salud:

Hip Dysplasia

    Hip scoring should be performed by responsible breeders to ensure that the small population of the Saint Germain Pointer stay healthy. Una simple radiografía de las caderas permitirá a un veterinario evaluar la calidad de las articulaciones de la cadera e informar al criador si son lo suficientemente buenas para permitir la reproducción.

Ear infections

    When the ear canal becomes clogged with a buildup of smelly debris, an infection is likely present. Ears may also be red, hot and sensitive. Affected dogs tend to shake their heads and rub their faces against the ground. Infections occur mainly due to the proliferation of bacteria and yeast, although they can also be due to a foreign body, como una semilla de hierba dentro del canal auditivo o ácaros del oído.

Grooming

The short coat of the Saint Germain Pointer does not need to be brushed more than once or twice a week. Toenails may need to be trimmed every few months, particularly if you don't walk on hard surfaces. The breed's clear claws make claw clipping easy, since the cut is visible, making it more avoidable than in dogs with dark pigmented claws.

The Most Important Grooming Duty An Owner Should Not Neglect, es el mantenimiento de una buena higiene de los oídos. Los oídos deben ser limpiados cada una o dos semanas con un limpiador de oídos para perros. Owners should also ensure that the ears are dry inside and out after being exposed to water..

    History

    It is said that the Swiss Hound is among the oldest members of the Group of Hounds. According to a 15th century letter to Ernst, Elector of Saxony (1441-86), Swiss working dogs were among the best. Imágenes del siglo XVII muestran jaurías de sabuesos “with the same color and the same size, large heads and very long ears”.

    Three centuries later, the german dog writer Richard Strebel wrote in “Die Deutschen Hunde” (German dog breeds, 1903-05) que los sabuesos que vivían por separado en una zona restringida de Suiza se desarrollaron por lo tanto por separado.

    In the decade of 1890, parecía que los sabuesos de pura raza estaban marcados para la muerte en Suiza, a pesar de la cría del Schwyz Hound, Bernese Hound and Lucerne Hound. Some hounds were exported to Scandinavia and, thanks to the crossing with native hounds, the Stövares (scandinavian hounds) they were blooming. But at the same time, the Thurgauer Laufhund quietly disappeared in Switzerland, and the Aargauer Laufhund gave way to Jura Hound (Bruno Jura Hound).

    In 1903, J. Dust del Swiss Kennel Club founded the Schweizerische Laufhunde-Club (Swiss Hound Club) and in 1907 an appeal was made to save the Swiss hound of extinction. Then something remarkable happened: the breed club bought good quality Swiss hounds and gave them to prudent breeders and hunters. Test rules and regulations were developed and a series of obligations were established: a) only one dog at a time when hunting; b) el perro tenía que estar bajo control cuando buscara caza; c) un perro que desapareciera durante la caza debía regresar a su amo en el plazo de media hora; y d) el perro debía regresar tan pronto como sonara la bocina, regardless of whether the dog was looking. Using these rules, the breed club tried to exclude disobedient dogs and forced owners to properly breed and train their dogs.

    Four varieties

    The development of Swiss Hound started in the decade of 1930, but it took time and effort. In 1937, only five hounds were entered in the Swiss herd book. The Dr. O. Vollenweider managed to gather 11 hound collectors in the city of Soleura, in northwestern Switzerland. Se seleccionaron perros adecuados para la cría y, in 1933, a breed standard was published. In the standard, the varieties were distinguished by coat color and pattern.

    In 1944, 150 Swiss hounds were entered in a hound exhibition. (Como país neutral, Switzerland did not participate in WWII) It was no longer forbidden to work with dogs that gave tongue, and bloodhounds of more than 20 inches (50 centimeters) to the cross.

    Attempts to save or restore the Laufhund de Argovia they were unsuccessful; in 1933, the breed standard was canceled. Four varieties remained: the Bernese Hound, the Jura Hound (Bruno Jura Hound), the Lucerne Hound and the Schwyz Hound. Their names connect them with cities and areas of Switzerland (Berne, Lucerne, Jura), or with Switzerland.

    It is said that between 1902 and 1922, a few 1.200 swiss hounds, mainly Schwyz Hound white-yellow, they were raised in Norway. Some years, había más sabuesos suizos fuera de Suiza que en su país de origen. In 1993, about 1.000 copies of Lucerne Hound vivían en Suecia.

    France is another importer. Seventy-five Jura Hound (Bruno Jura Hound) enrolled in an exhibition in Lyon in 1976. It is not surprising that the Jura is predominantly found in France and Switzerland, and that it extends to Germany. Since the 15th century, Swiss hounds were also exported to Italy. Según Räber, they frequently crossed paths with his Italian cousin, the Italian short-haired Segugio.

    History

    In the 19th century, in the North Shetland Islands of Scotland, the ancestors of Shetland Sheepdog, often called Sheltie, ayudaban a los rebaños de ovejas y hacían sonar la alarma cuando se acercaban extraños a su granja.

    However, los orígenes exactos de este perro son tan oscuros como la niebla que cubre su tierra natal. Its resemblance to him Rough Collie apoya la teoría de que desciende de estos perros, believed to have been imported from Scotland. However, Colleys breeders and various specialists refute this claim.

    For them, the Sheltie se habrían desarrollado de forma aislada en estas islas, y serían el resultado de diferentes cruces. The races most frequently cited as contributors to its creation are the Icelandic Sheepdog, the Yakki de Groenlandia (an extinct race), the Cavalier King Charles spaniel, the Pomeranian and the Border Collie.

    In any case, at the beginning of the 20th century it was often crossed Rough Collie, which reinforced the resemblance between the two races.

    What is certain is that its small size was the result of the most rational selection work. Similar to the “Pony of Shetland”, known for its miniature size, locals gave preference to animals that needed little food, un bien escaso en esta difícil región.

    Although the Shetland Sheepdog it was especially appreciated in its native islands for its qualities of a sheepdog and alert, fue principalmente su apariencia la que le permitió salir de allí. Visitors to England in the late 19th century were delighted with the small size and texture of the dog's coat. Shetland Sheepdog, and soon they wanted to take something home, which they did. Soon, some locals decided to start breeding for export, selecting breeders for height and coat. More and more individuals set out to conquer Britain and then the rest of the world. However, no existían ni estándares de raza ni consultas entre los diferentes criadores, por lo que la raza se desarrollaba en direcciones a veces muy distantes entre sí.

    Things changed after the official recognition in 1909 by the Kennel Club, the leading organization in Great Britain. El nombre elegido fue simplemente el nombre por el que el perro había sido conocido hasta entonces, the Shetland Sheepdog. This recognition helped to stabilize the breed by establishing a well-defined framework in which the different breeders had to work..

    However, the chosen name was not to the liking of the colleys breeders, who pressured them and won their case in 1914: then it was officially renamed as Shetland Sheepdog.

    In the meantime, los primeros ejemplares habían llegado a los Estados Unidos y, already in 1911, the American Kennel Club (AKC) also accepted it. Was not up 1948 that the United Kennel Club (UKC), the other reference organization in the United States, he did the same. It was followed by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) in 1954, así como por todas las demás instituciones importantes, including the Canadian Kennel Club (CCC).

    Although the Shetland Sheepdog es ahora común en todo el mundo, paradoxically it has become rare on its home island, where it has been replaced by the Border Collie for grazing.

    This decline can also be seen in the rest of Britain. For example, Annual Kennel Club enrollments have dropped from more than 1300 less than 800 in less than a decade.

    The phenomenon is also occurring in the United States, where he now occupies the position 25 (of a little less than 200) on the AKC popularity rankings, basada en el número anual de personas registradas en la organización. In other words, has lost a lot of ground compared to the decades of 1980 and 1990, in which he was almost constantly among the 10 first, reaching a maximum of 40.000 records in 1993. La caída es lenta pero constante, since at the beginning of 2010, todavía estaba en las 20 first positions.

    The race “Father” of the Shetland Sheepdog o “Sheltie” as they are often nicknamed, they are the Border Collie.

    black and white: it is less common but still acceptable.

    Sand: the best-known color, dominates over other colors. The shadow Sabre, or mahogany can sometimes be confused with the Sheltie tricolor because of the large amount of dark shading in their coats. Another name for him Sheltie “shading”, is trifactorado sable and white. This name comes from the mixture of a tricolor and a sable and white. Otro color aceptable pero menos común es el Sable Mirlo, that it can sometimes be difficult to distinguish between the regular sable after puppyhood. The Sable merle has patches of dark brown on a light brown background compared to the black and grey blue Merle.

    There are other two colors that are a bit rare, which are unacceptable in the ring. The White Color-headed (mostly white with the head “normally” marked), It is the product of two dogs crossed white facotrados.

    During the early years of the 20th century, great efforts were made to rebuild the type of the old Smalandsstövare, especially the short-tailed variety. The first standard, written in 1921, permitía a los perros tener tanto la cola corta como la larga. Primero se decidió que el color sería negro y fuego, but red and yellow were allowed, así como las manchas blancas.

La sangre nueva se utilizó por última vez en el decenio de 1950, When, durante un breve período, dogs of unknown origin were registered, but accepted type, as Smaland Hound.
