(sired by Am/Can.Ch. Wistwin Andante ex Brae Carel's Dinah Lee)

born Christmas Day 2001

Shep was bred by Becky Elliott and is owned by Nancy and Roger Akers, but we feel he is part of the

Wistwin family since he is an Andy son.  In only three years, Shep became the 31st Sheltie to earn his

Herding Championship in June 2011. In his herding career he has had 6 HIT (2 in advanced classes), 1 Reserve HIT, 17 firsts, and 7 2nds.  Shep is also working on a PAX in agility. 

Shep is a certified Therapy Dog as well.

At the 2009 ASSA National,  Shep won the MOST VERSATILE SHELTIE award, with his

performances in agility, herding and obedience.
