At Whispering Shelties we have a variety of ball players, squeaky toy fans, tail chasers, belly rub lovers, bed hogs, and biscuit gourmets. Shelties are remarkable dogs that are sensitive to their people's needs and feelings, and we strive to insure our pups will be social, playful, cuddly, and loving - no matter what kind of future adventures they seek out. Our breeding program focuses on Shelties with sound bodies and minds with socialization, and temperament being our number one priority. It is truly impossible for us to look at our amazing Shelties and not have a smile flood over our faces with the realization that the soul before us loves us completely, and with only one condition - that we love them back.
