Phoenix's mom says: Phoenix is a Shetland sheepdog, nicknamed Nix. He is now 13 weeks and weighs only six pounds. Phoenix is the most intelligent puppy we have ever known. He is potty trained and knows the basic commands of sit, stay, come, and no. He is learning shake and we are certain he will have it down in no time. As with most Shelties, he is a good jumper, very willing to please and obey, loving, and affectionate. He loves the dog park and plays with dogs of all sizes. He also loves his bones, chew toys, snuggling, lots of attention, and being near his pack (mom, dad, sister, brother, and Mischief the ferret). Phoenix is a wonderful addition to our family and the best Christmas present we could get!
