Shetland Sheepdog


March 29, 2001


16.25 in / 24 lb. / Mahogany Sable


Mikey is a sweet, gentle dog, who loves people.  We call him our social butterfly because he seeks out people to pay attention to him and loves to be petted.

Mikey lives with two other shelties, his older brother, Andy, and his younger sister, Evie.


Mikey has been trained in obedience, agility, and some herding.


He has received his CD title in obedience as well as excellent titles in agility. He is also R.E.A.D certified.

How Do You Know That Your Dog Loves Therapy Work?

As soon as he sees his vest he knows that it is time to go to work and is excited to get to where we are going.
