On another note, poor sweet double merle pup.. they make me so sad.
I'm always sorely tempted when I see them turn up in shelters.

They sure are lovely despite the tragedy of their genes.

And plans for her future she is staying at the breeder and may be used for breeding later on.

I don't like this either, but it wasn't a merle to merle breeding. She is just one in that litter it appears the rest were blue merles and 2 Tricolors.

Another note here, many are surrender to breed specific rescues as well. Many breeders also keep them as a pet too. This little girl was just as happy and playing, wrestling with her brother the Tri and loved playing on an agility swing. Sight was not her issue. I never asked about hearing but she was a happy little pup.

Uh oh spaghettios.... Baby shelties!

I know what you mean about coat colors. I don't think I could have gone through with another sable after Theo passed. Dash is so full of life, though, that I would totally reconsider now!

You're going to be overjoyed no matter who ends up going home with you!

@Love My Zons

When is she taking the final measurements!?
No idea, maybe this week, or next. I am just waiting to hear. But I am really okay waiting on the young bi black and blue litter. I may just want a black and white then again a blue may talk to me as well!

Hey guys, change of plan, change of heart here. I just couldn't do this right now, too soon.

I have missed in my heart my Border Collie mix Girl the worst, the entire year. I cannot replace Cappy's magnificent face, not right now.

Meet my blind date puppy Betelguese! He and I will meet after he is safely home after transport next week sometime.

Approx 4 1/2 months old Border Collie Aussie mix my 50/50 mutty.

He's very cute! He was a breeder surrender who breeds the Border and Aussies as a breed. Must be a thing there in the rural part of MO for farms.

And $2200 was just too ridiculous to pay for a sheltie from a show home for a pet, not going to show so....

Mutty it is, but his transport cost 3x his adoption fee.

We live once right?

I didn't realize that was a popular mix to be doing now but I feel like I'm seeing more of them lately. Wowza that's a lot for a Sheltie baby but I get it being a well bred dog comes with a price. I just know this little one will help mend your heart :heart: . Do you think you'll keep his name or change it?

His name was Domino, I changed it to Betelguese. Black and white, yet the Betelguese is a star, 2nd brightest in the Orion constellation.

:) and seems to me they are breeding them too. But they are very close in stature, size and herding ability.

Ooh! That's even better that you changed his name to Betelguese! I'd always thought about naming a pup Sirius after the Dog Star.

Oh, such a cutie! My Marcus was such a good dog... the mix made for some challenges, but training and lots of activities with rewards will help if there are issues.
