Benjamin knows all the basics of sit, down, recall, walks on leash, and is crate trained. He travels well in the car. He has started training as a service dog and knows how to pick up small objects and place them into your hand. Please see video of him in action. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eJc0Y50qUE s Benji has exquisite type/expression, clean movement in every direction, and his coat has been cared for immaculately all his life. He will not be part of my breeding program, so I am offering him as a pet. ***He MUST be neutered and is NOT for breeding.*** He is used to being a house dog and I absolutely do not want a kennel-type situation for him. If you are looking for an active, highly responsive happy pet sheltie that looks every bit a finished Champion even to a trained eye, Benji is the one for you. He stands approx 15" at the withers. His father is an AKC Best in Show Grand Champion and was ranked as a Top Ten Sheltie in the country. His mother comes from a long line of ASSA National Specialty winners, including AOM, RWD, RWB at past Nationals. Benji's full litter sister (bred and handled by me) placed in puppy Futurity at this year's ASSA National Specialty, and his aunt (bred and trained by me) was ranked as one of the top AKC Obedience Champions in the country. This is the first time in three years I am offering one of my trained youngsters as a pet. All health clearances have been done on parents; Hips, Elbows, Thryoid, Eyes (CERF), VWD, and MDR1 Normal/Normal. Please email for initial contact.
