The Shetland Sheepdog In America
by breeder/judge Charlotte Clem McGowan
This in-depth discussion of breed history is like taking a college course on Shelties! The author, a long-time breeder and judge, discusses the origin of the breed, important kennels and individuals through the decades, and much more. She also gives advice on showing, breeding, and interpreting the Standard. Did you know that Shelties were not originally bred to herd sheep? That size and much of their herding instinct was added through the Collie crosses done earlier in this century? These insights are just a sample of what awaits you!
