Good With Dogs:⬛⬛⬛⬛⬜⬜⬜
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.
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.
The coloration of a puppy should not change the price unless the coat coloration is rare. The light sable coat coloration for the Sheltie breed is not a rare one, so a puppy should still be in the range of the average price. The average price for a Sheltie puppy ranges from $900.00 - $1250.00. Health and confirmation of your puppy should be your first concern before coloration. So make sure you find a reputable, responsible and knowledgeable breeder first. Then tell your breeder the coloration you are looking for and go on their waiting list.
