Hi, I'm Julie Iverson of Homespun Shelties.

My first Sheltie came to me while I was attending veterinary school

at Michigan State University in 1981.  I was looking for a smaller dog

that I could learn obedience with and through my research decided upon

a Sheltie.  I wanted a sable female but none were available so I ended up

with a tri male.  I couldn't have been more pleased with Andy.  He was

a great companion and also became class mascot as he attended many

study sessions and other activities.  We did very well competing in

obedience as well.

I moved to a suburb of Pittsburgh, PA in 1984 to begin my Veterinary

career and met my mentor Rusty Cromer of Merlyn Kennels when

she brought her shelties into the clinic.  At that time I was still competing

in obedience and really didn't know much about the conformation

world.  She invited me to join Three Rivers Shetland Sheepdog Club

of Greater Pittsburgh.  I attended my first national in 1999 and by

that time was enamored with conformation as well as performance.

Although I have had sables in the past I currently have AOAC's

(any other acceptable color).

Please enjoy visiting my Shelties!
