I have had Shelties for the past 20 years and if you are lucky enough to have a healthy Sheltie they can live up to 20 years. I just lost my 18 year old and then right after her I lost my 17 year old, I still have a 16 year old. I have had 2 that got cancer at the age of 6 so you never know and you count your blessings each day you have wih them.

The normal life expectancy for a healthy sheltie is 12-15 years.

Hey nice question but the person that said that Shetland Sheepdogs live 24-35 years are idiots. That is not how long they live at all. They live like 15-17 usually..... But I had a Sheltie that lived 20 years, and died of of course old age. She was BEAUTIFUL!!! Shelties make great dogs but I do have 1 thing that I don't like how much they shed so you should take them to their groomers every 4 weeks. I know you didn't ask all this but I just love dogs and carry on and on about them!!! LOL! :)
