Amatras Shetland Sheepdogs  are breeders dedicated to focusing on longevity, health, temperament, structure, brains and beauty. Shelties are added to the program with these qualities only and bred only to improve each trait through each successive generation.


Companion and conformation (show) shelties are guaranteed against genetic defects that render them unsuitable as a family companion for one year with a full money-back guarantee.

(Beyond one year of age, a five year guarantee is extended with offer of a replacement puppy.)

Amatras Shetland Sheepdogs work purposefully with Sheltie breeders that perpetuate longevity & health in their lineage.

The family lineages you find throughout this website represent some of the finest lineages that have been offered to us and to the Shetland Sheepdog breed.

Thus, our goal is to perpetuate the quality already established and continually strive for the betterment of the breed.
