These three beauties represent the three basic colors in Shelties; merle, sable, and black. The one on the left is a merle, which happens to be a blue merle. There are also sable merles. The middle dog is a sable. On the right is a tri-colored Sheltie (black and white with tan markings.) A black and white Sheltie that has no tan markings is called a bi-black.
