At Crosswind, our goal is to raise correct and beautiful shelties with outstanding temperaments.  We have a small number of shelties who live with us in our home. As well as being much-loved companions, each pursues activities in one or more of the following venues:  conformation, obedience, agility or therapy work.

Meet Our Shelties…

CH Carmylie Miss Quinn (CH Dury Voe Scottsdale x CH Carmylie Brandina Wild Child) In the case of Miss Quinn, “persistence paid off.” I basically pestered Jean Simmonds until she acquiesced and allowed me to share this darling puppy.  Quinn finished her championship in June 2012 with limited showing, earning a four point specialty major, a five point specialty major and a five point specialty major reserve along the way.  She was third in the open sable class at the 2012 ASSA National Specialty.   She is our family clown and my adorable shadow!

Carmylie Crosswind Capri (CH Chailea Carmylie The Heat Is On x Carmylie Winter Rain) Capri (above left ) is a darling little girl who was Reserve Winner’s Bitch her first time in the show ring! She has produced some lovely puppies for us including Crosswind Carmylie Summer in Milan (by CH Lanstarr Triumph Here’s Johnny) above right and the two girls pictured below. These pretty girls are sired by CH Barwoods Belmark Top Notch.

CH Carmylie Crosswind Deep Water “Devon” (GR CH B Carmylie Sea Wave x Carmylie Summer in Milan) Our newest champion, this fun little dog finished at 18 months! He’s currently trying his “paw” at agility and, as is typical for him, he’s having a ball!
