No gallery on this forum so I will share the odd litter here. This is what happens when you cross a white factored, bi factored tri colored sheltie girl with a bi factored sable merle boy. Almost one of every sheltie color!

Jomuir ~ Have been on SN a couple of times and a friend of mine usually spends lots of time there. She is also a sheltie breeder. I don't show anymore as I am just not into the politics but I am familiar with a few breeders. My foundation mom's sire is a US dog out of Famous Amos line. The mom of that litter and retired now. She is an amazing mom and a very special girl.

Marg ~ That litter was really funny. I wasn't intending to keep any of them but The Painter Man is still Momma's Boy at 7; a title he now shares with his son Gairden's Blackjack. And my last puppy from Chloe's litter is now Ann's Momma's Boy at Trails End Iris! He is beautiful at almost 9 months now! :)

Ladybug ~ Nice litter with almost every allowable color. I am often asked what breed or breeds they are since they are all different. Bi black, blue merle with tan, tri, sable, and bi blue merle. I am missing a sable merle. Her next litter was 2 color headed whites, 2 bi blacks and 3 tris.

Angel's grandaughter, Chloe, just had a false pregnancy to Painter so I guess no puppies for Christmas. I really didn't want another litter at Christmas anyway. Next summer. :)

Adorable puppies. I've always liked shelties. I grew up hearing them called collies though. Eventually learned it's the same dog.

RE: OK I guess there is no gallery so here are the fantastic five

Uh oh....better not say that around a sheltie breeder. Shelties are Shetland Sheepdogs and Collies are Collies......2 totally separate breeds. These are Shetland Sheepdogs and I have been breeding them for about 10 years. Although Collies were used in the creation of the Shetland Sheepdog breed, they are completely different breeds. And shelties are NOT miniature collies as some have been lead to believe. There is no such thing as a miniature collie.

There are many herding breeds and they all have distinct and separate standards unless they are a cross bred dog and not registerable as a purebred.

Thank you for the comments and interest in my kids. They are a handful sometimes. I have 5 adult shelties and puppies occasionally. Very smart dogs, incredibly easy to train, and always under foot! As they were bred to drive stock, they instinctively follow me everywhere! Just try and close a sheltie out of the bathroom!

Very cute. I love, in the first pic, they look like they are smiling for the camera. I have to say, the last pic, I am a sucker for a black and white dog. So cute, all of them.

Cookie ~ It took a lot of crazy glue to get that first picture! They were all playing with each other until the moment before the picture was snapped and I got their attention. Always fun having puppies around and when all the dogs are together they look like a herd of Holsteins!

Yes we have a rescue dog and she is great, love her to death. But 1 of these days will get another sheltie. I think the next one will be called Shadow, as they are always by your side. Who needs bathroom reading material when you have a sheltie to talk to.


 o
RE: OK I guess there is no gallery so here are the fantastic five

Good to hear! Yes, I generally have at least 2 of them in the bathroom with me. Growing up, the sheltie breeder across the alley had a tri named Shadow. Common sheltie name. Another one is Merlin......like that is surprising! :)
