Hello! I am new to this forum, but have had shelties in my life for the past 35 years. So far, 3 of our 5 shelties have/had were diagnosed with heart murmurs and heart disease o various kinds. It has been so discouraging! Is this common in shelties? Are the breeders working to correct the problem? My husband and I currently have 2 shelties, a 6 and a half year old blue merle, who seems to be healthy, and an almost 13 year old rescue sheltie, who has just been diagnosed with a heart murmur. The other 2 who had heart disease are now over the rainbow bridge. I'd welcome any information.
