Good With Dogs:⬛⬛⬛⬛⬜⬜⬜
In one word, Yes. These dogs are extremely intelligent, bright, eager, and have energy to spare. Because of this, this breed is highly recommended for people whom need a service dog, but not for physical reasons. Hearing Dogs (Service for the deaf), Seizure Dogs (Service for people with seizures), Diabetes Dogs (Service for people with diabetes), PTSD Dogs (Service for people with PTSD or another form of emotionally trauma), ect. Are only a few of many different services this breed can be for a person needing a service dog.
When you contact your breeder, if the breeder already ships then he/she will have an airline that they've used before. On average it costs $350.00 - $450.00 to ship a puppy and that includes the crate, airline fee's and other travel expenses. But it does not include any importing fee's you may have to pay when you pick up your puppy. All puppies have to be seen by a vet before hand to get a health certificate that says they are able to fly before being shipped as well.
Epilepsy is common in the breed when it is not screened for by the breeder or if the breeder breeds a dog that has epilepsy. It is never easy to lose a pet, no matter how long you've had them. I recommend asking the breeder about whether or no they test for epilepsy in their lines or no when looking for a new puppy.
My Sheltie had seizures from age 2-10. He passed at age 14 in July 2018.
There is no way to stop any type of dog or person from getting a heart murmur. A heart murmur is something a dog is born with and is passed down from the pedigree. So making sure not to breed a dog that has a heart murmur or has heart murmur's in their pedigree is the best way to keep any potential pups from getting one.
