When a Pembroke Welsh corgi and a sheltie, or Shetland sheepdog, are bred together, the puppies are called Pembroke shelties. Pembroke shelties are medium-size dogs, weighing 14 to 30 pounds and reaching a height of 12 to 18 inches.
Pembroke shelties are highly intelligent and active herding dogs that require a lot of exercise. They are eager to learn and easily trained. Pembroke shelties have a low tendency to bark and are not aggressive.
Pembroke shelties' coats can be red or brown and white. The soft, medium-length coats shed twice a year, and an undercoat rake helps with the process of shedding. Pembroke shelties are family-friendly dogs with a life expectancy of 12 to 15 years.
