I'm new to this forum and wondered if there are any other Sheltie owners out there!
Hopefully I've managed to post a pix of my boys!!!
Yep Brill pics!! I look forward to seeing more
Hi Zanny - I bred and showed shelties for many years until last christmas - when I retired my last breeding bitch to concentrate on my other breeds. I do miss my shelties though - my daughters used to do Junior Handling with them and obedience. One of my boys, a tricolour called Ace, used to be good at obedience but my teenage girls got to be teenagers and lost interest, so he went to live with a little girl who was starting out in obedience. He has fallen on his feet and found a new lease of life and is giving a lot of joy to his new mistress.
I would like to get back into shelties again when I am too old to have the bigger breeds, but I have sadly lost my breeding line.
I look forward to seeing many more pics of yours - I do miss my bunch. I bred a beautiful blue merle called Joker - seeing yours has reminded me of him.
Beautiful blue merle's I don't have shelties as you will see
frpm my avatar and my name forum name but I can still admire and appreciate them. great pics
Lovely looking dogs. I had two rough collies at one time, and think they and the shelties are a most attractive breed of dog, and the blue merles have a special fascination for me
I am new to this site and am a Sheltie owner.
In my business I have taken quite a few photos of shelties, some I feel are quite stunning, my avitar is my own sheltie.
If someone could explain how i do it i will try to post up some pics if anyone would like to see.
I am trying to put in a pic not sure i this will work apologies if it doesnt.
Now I know what I am doing with pics, here is one of my own sheltie.
wow they are absolutely gorgeous
Hey I'm new too. I have a lovely little girl who is two years old. She is such a little princess and we love her loads...
I was raised by Shelties. My last sheltie, Phillip, passed two years ago in June. I'm in the market for a rescue sheltie now. Phil was an older dog when we adopted him, and he was so special, I would like to honor his memory by adopting another older sheltie.
Here are the shelties that formed my life.
Krissie (with my brother)
(with my Brother again)
Bonnie with me
Bonnie and Duke
Callie with my Dad and cousin
Phillip, aka loverboy
Moxie, my current dog is ACD mixed with either Border collie or Sheltie
I am "Auntie" to this up and coming agility star, Derby at 7 months
I love shelties. They are IMHO, the best family dog going. I will be raising my kids with shelties as well.
I think you will notice from the pics that US shelties are generally taller, and more "streamline" for lack of a better word than the original UK sheltie.
At last some more sheltie lovers!
Thank you for replying to my post, was beginning to think I was all alone.
Our sheltie, Gillie, bought for my daughter will be 4 in May this year and I have to say I could have not asked for a better dog for her.
He is fantastic and I ill when the time is right be getting another one, probably a rescue but they are very hard to come by, which in itself proves what wonderful dogs they are.
Have you seen the painting I have just done of Gillie for my daughters 11th birthday, it was posted a few days ago in the photography and art section.
Such lovely pictures and a wonderful breed. I have always found them a bit more sensitive like the CKCS that I love too. Do You???
Yes I suppose they are sensitive but I can not compare to the CKCS as I have never had one, met many in my work as an artist briefly, I do however own an ex-racing greyhound also who is extremely sensitive.
I believe my mother used to work for a breeder of CKCS, I will ask her what she thinks.
No biggy, just pretty much meant that I think when training they should be handled in a more gentle way than most.
Again just love the breed.
I saw that painting of Gillie, it was gorgeous!
