Shetland Sheepdog


December 15, 2008


15 3/4 inches tall / 23 lbs. / Blue Merle Color


Lizzy is the sweetest and most affectionate dog that I have ever owned. She absolutely loves physical contact--she loves to sit in laps and loves to be petted. She is very intelligent and learns new behaviors quickly.


Lizzy has been in training since we brought her home at 9 weeks of age. She has advanced training in obedience, sheepherding and agility.


Lizzy has her Intermediate Agility titles (OA, OAJ); her Novice obedience title (CD), her Started Herding title (HSA s) and her Intermediate Rally title (RA).

How Do You Know That Your Dog Loves Therapy Work?

Lizzy goes right up to people and positions herself for petting. She needs very little direction from me as she initiates that contact. She also lies quietly and listens intently to the stories that the children read to her. Her eyes never leave their faces.
