'SOPHIE' - A ONCE IN A LIFETIME BITCH
Sophia is a reincarnated show dog I'm convinced.
A spoilt sheltie some may say but why not! Look at her! A beautifully
marked mahogany sable and white.
Standing at 14 inches, as the standard requires.
Her beautiful neck - leng of neck sufficient to carry the head proudly.....
her pretty face - instant appeal!
Well balanced, proportioned and sound, Sophia's confidence
has carried her to some memorable wins including Sheltie Specialists and International All Breeds judges - she certainly has done extremely well!

There have been so many memorable moments with this bitch, where do we start! From multiple baby in shows to multiple All Breeds Best in Show and Specialty Shows she's a once in a lifetime! Some are listed below.
Shown in hot competition from day 1, she had taken challenges from 19 points in Minor, then going on to Minor in Show at the Hunter Region Working Dog Club Show, this was her first big weekend. Now handled by Luke Tresidder, Sophia took her first Best in Show (550+) in November 2009 (pic below with E Moore (SA). We had always hoped this would happen. 10 BEST IN SHOWS - APRIL 2015 - ILLAWARRA COLLIE & SHETLAND SHEEPDOG CLUB - just wonderful for Sophie, we couldn't be more thrilled!
An exceptional mover with equal length upper arm and lay of shoulder and balanced rear angulation she never misses the eye of an experienced Judge. Her daisy cutting action shown in the above picture is a rarity and she is rewarded accordingly
