Default Ruaidhrí Faolán (Rory) and Shadow Mist (Ongoing Thread)

Shadow Mist

Shadow Mist is a Blue Merle Shetland Sheepdog (Sheltie)

Shadow came from "Majestic Shelties" who breeds only for show.

That means the breeder is breeding strictly for herself by matching the best of the breed in the parents to try to produce a puppy that will be eligible to show.
The parents both have to be tested with to ensure they don't have breed specific health issues that might carry genetically to the offspring.
If a puppy is oversize, under size or has medical issues or physical traits that are considered to be "faults" when showing dogs, then those puppies are sold as pets.
The puppies are measured each week to see if they are staying within "standard" and other traits such as their gait, stance, fur, tail, etc. are all evaluated as well.
It turned out that this little male is "probably" going to be just about 1/4 inch too tall to show.

The breeder contacted me on Sunday, 9/17 when she decided to make him available for adoption as a pet.

I worked out the logistics and drove up to Cleveland OH on Tuesday, 9/21 to meet him.
I stayed overnight, picked him up the next morning and made the 7 hour one-way drive back home!

Birthdate: February 22, 2017

Shadow arrived home to become part of the renowned "FaeryBee Flock" Wednesday, September 20, 2017

Shadow is a very sweet tempered, calm and loving little boy and I'm completely head over heels in love with him!

Shadow Mist will be joined by another little sheltie (from a different breeder) on October 14th and will become the official "big brother" at that time.

He is gorgeous, congratulations! I absolutely adore Shelties and want to own one myself someday! He looks like he's going to be very loved and will have a happy life with you and your flock

Thank you everyone!

I must admit that if I didn't feel very strongly about Shadow having a sheltie playmate, I'd be extremely happy having him as a solo pup.

However, having had a solo sheltie in the past I saw how strongly Misty Blue bonded to me and the separation anxiety she went through whenever I wasn't around.
Those issues led me to get two shelties the next time.

Autumn and Kylie were wonderful together and it was so much fun watching them run and play together! (I can't run as well as I used to when I was younger. LOL)

I'm very interested to see if Shadow will indeed be a good influence on Rory when Rory arrives since he'll be a wee boy of only 8 weeks when he comes home.

It's also going to be fun having a blue merle and a sable as having both at the same time will be a first for me!

What a handsome boy he is, looks like he has settled right in. When Rory comes, Shadow will be able to show him around the house and let him know what the rules are, maybe that will make it easier on you.

What a handsome youngster. The markings are a unique characteristic. He seems to have passed through the adjustments of early puppy training with ease, even though still very young. Congrats to you and Ted.
Love and Blessings From our family to yours.

Shadow got to run and play off-leash with his friend "Finnegan" (a little bishon mix) out on the hill near the golf course this evening.
They had a wonderful time chasing and tumbling with one another.

Now, little Shadow is plumb worn out! He's having a nap before bedtime with his hedgehog toy whose name is "Hoggie".
