Welcome to Wildwest Shelties

Wildwest Shelties is a very small kennel in Arizona.  Well, "kennel" might be stretching it.  The dogs here are part of my family.  My dogs live with me -- they spend time in the house with me, lounging on the couch or hanging out in the kitchen while I am cooking in hopes that I will drop something.

My goal in Shelties is to (1) Enjoy them! (2) be a part of preserving this wonderful breed by working to produce Shelties that are healthy, smart, loving and fun; and (3) enjoy them some more!



I love Shelties and I'm happy to hear from folks who love Shelties.  If you have a Sheltie and need some help with something, I'll try to help.  If you are looking for a Sheltie and I don't have one that suits your fancy, I'd be happy to refer to someone else that might.  I'm not here just to make a sale, I'm here to help you with your Shelties whether or not you own or are buying a Wildwest Sheltie.  Why?  Because I'm kinda crazy about Shelties.  I hope you are too!
