Welcome to Azul Shetland Sheepdogs. We are a small hobby kennel located in west central Florida.  Our Shelties are family members and obedience stars!  We belong to Upper Suncoast Dog Training Club and Dog Training Club of Tampa.

We first fell in love with Shelties in 1995 when we met "Lucy" who was owned by one of our neighbors who lived down the street from us.

We purchased our first Sheltie in 1996.

Lucy and our first Sheltie, Misty Blue were the best of friends until Lucy moved away and that is when we decided to get our second Sheltie to keep Misty Blue company.

Shilo is our second Sheltie and joined our family in 1998. She became the first dog that Janice trained in obedience and for showing in obedience trials. Janice and Shilo  enjoy their time as a team in the ring and it shows by the smiles on both of their faces!  Kashmir joined us in April of 2000 as the one and only puppy in the litter that Shilo delivered.  She was eager to follow in her mommy's pawprints and has been doing very well in the obedience ring as well.  Misty Blue accompanies the family on their show outings but remains on the sidelines as a cheerleader.  She was purchased from a non-breeder and has had to have both patellas repaired.

"Christine" and "Phantom" joined our Sheltie family in July of 2001.  They were born in a litter of five to Shilo on July 12, 2001.  Christine received her U-CH title this past summer and we plan on begin training in obedience very shortly for both of them. 

Please feel free to look around and get acquainted with our little family. We are very proud of our Blue Merle Sheltie family and hope you enjoy looking around the site.  Email if you have any questions or would just like to chat. We'd love to hear from you!
