We imagine that the idea to cross a Papillon with a Shetland Sheepdog came about due to something like this happening; a while back, someone noticed that Papillons and Shelties look very similar. This hypothetical person may have thought that the Papillon was some sort of miniature Sheltie, thought the "mini Sheltie" looked insanely cute, and decided to breed the "Mini Sheltie"/Papillon with a Shetland Sheepdog in an attempt to get more. Much to our imaginary hero's chagrin but to our delight, the Shelillon resulted from that pairing. While the actual origins of the Shelillon are wrapped in mystery, their potential to become great family pets will become more clear to you as you learn about and spend time with one of these dogs.
Thanks a bunch for reading our activity guide for Shelillons. We hope that you enjoyed reading this article (as well as our little anecdote about "Mini Shelties") as much as we enjoyed writing it. We also hope that we've been able to shed some light about the habits and behavioral traits of the Shelillon so that you'll have enough information to decide if this breed of dog would be a good pet for you. Shelillons have a surprising amount of energy for their size as well as a surprising amount of gusto and enthusiasm, meaning that these dogs will be happy to try out a number of other activities that didn't make this list so long as they have a caring and compassionate partner to try them out with.
