Welcome to the Web site of the Scolebrook Shetland Sheepdogs - We hope you enjoy your visit here.
A A brief History of how my interest in Shelties has developedI first fell in love with the Shetland Sheepdog in 1984 and acquired my first Dog, Toby whom I bought as a puppy at the age of 8 weeks in June 1984. He was joined some 12 months later by my second Sheltie Chris who was 10 months old when he joined my Sheltie family Sadly I lost Toby at the age of 14 at the end of March 1998 but I was very fortunate to obtain my first Sheltie bitch, Jessica about a week later as a companion to Chris, Jessica was 10 months old when I got her and she stayed with me until I unfortunately lost after a long illness lasting about 3 months on the 13th December 2007.I bought Jac who is Jessica's litter brother at the beginning of February 1999 Jac was 22 months old when I bought him, I then sadly lost Chris at the age of 14½ at the end of March 1999. Unfortunately Jac had to be put to sleep during surgery on 19th September 2001 due to an inoperable abdominal tumour at the too young age of 4.I was granted my Affix which is Scolebrook, with a view to starting to breed and eventually start showing Shelties, at the beginning of March 2000. Jessica was mated and gave birth to her first litter on the 3rd of August 2000. Katie was born on the 3rd of August 2000 and was from Jessica's first litter.Jessica was mated again on the 6th March 2002 and had her litter on the 7th May 2002, Rowan is from Jessica's 2nd. Litter.Nina joined my Sheties in September 2004 at the age of 12 weeks and she had her first litter of 3 Tricolour puppies on the 1st December 2007, and Jasmine is the one that I kept from this litter.Lily is the latest Sheltie to join my family and she joined us at the age of 8 weeks on 15th June 2017.
