Arrival Story: After seeing blue merle sheltie on tv I wanted one desperately. I found a breeder in the magazine DOG FANCY about 3 hours away. I contacted them and they were about to have a litter but didn't know if there would be a blue merle. I received a phone call stating that they had ONE blue merle female if I was interested. SO I put a deposit on her. I then found out her birthday and believe my deceased grandpa sent her to me (of course with God's help)...It is the same birthday as his.
