Boston is a handsome Shetland Sheepdog.  He has substantial bone and carries a dense coat.  The boy has a lovely archy neck and exudes masculinity; full dentition and a full muzzle, long tail, and short hocks. Boston stacks beautifully every time  and is a born showman.

Boston carries himself like a stallion, and at the same times is one of the best-natured Shelties you will meet. He loves to play and also knows how to relax and chill out. Boston is truly a joy to live with.

I love what Boston has produced for me--beautiful outlines, rock solid rears, bone, and pretty clear blues as well as a sweet and devoted temperament. Boston has a champion daughter here at Wildwest Shelties (Shimmer), another daughter at Daedream Shelties with a specialty reserve, a handsome son in a show home who is also working as a service dog and a few others growing up here for whom I have high hopes as conformation prospects.
