What is a minuature Shetland Sheepdog?

I dont really think this answer is best, but my shetland sheepdog is mixed with a Pomeranian, so that makes him a little smaller than other shetlands. When mixed with a Pomeranian, his snout is shorter and his tail curls up. He is very lovable, and my fav dog. :)

I think maybe you are thinking of the fact that Shetland Sheepdogs are sometimes called miniature collies. This is because they look like rough collies--Lassie-type collies--but are smaller. Shetland Sheepdogs originated in the Shetland Islands north of Scotland. They are small enough already--no one I have heard of is breeding a miniature form of Shetland Sheepdog.
