|I called him my "demon puppy." He was always into something (like the water dish), exploring someplace or trying to herd the adults into a corner. But, you couldn't get angry at him because when you did he showered you with puppy kisses
Aro's antics continued through his first AKC match where he found leaping and rolling around much more fun than showing. And then he discovered...chicken. If he stood still and baited nicely and moved when he was supposed to, he got fed nice juicy chicken. And, we now have a little "SHOW" dog.
Aro had an amazing fall show season. He has earned 1 Select Dog, 6 Best of Breeds, two Herding Group 4 and a Herding Group 1! At the Desert Southwest Shetland Sheepdog Assoc. UKC show he went Reserve Best In Show! Aro is taking a well earned vacation shows while kennel mate Garrett is out in the show ring.
Aro was cobred and is co-owned with Beki Vale (Sunnyvale Shelties) and Rebecca Porter. His pedigree contains several of our favorite Shelties Pedigree Additional photos of Aro can be seen by clicking this link.
