Running in the field at our summer place in New Hampshire

Best Tricks:
She's only 5 months but knows: sit, drop down, touch my hand, walk backwards, watch me

Arrival Story:
I wanted a Sheltie. In May, I found Ripley a 2 year old Sheltie who had been abandoned. I fostered him and hoped to keep him but he was so scared of traffic, I was unable to walk him. I came to the heartbreaking decision that he needed to find a home in the country. On the way back from bringing Ripley to his new home in Maine, I went to see Whisper because I decided I couldn't live wihtout a Sheltie. I had already picked a breeder and the pups I was interested in before I found Ripley were ready to go to their new homes. The rest, as they say is history.

This puppy is amazing. She's smart and sensitive and just wonderful. Please, stop asking me if she's a mineature. A mineature what? Also, if you see us, please don't say, "Hey look! It's baby Lassie."
