Shine is co-owned with Cindy in GA. Shine had one lovely litter for us and is retired from breeding.
Shine is an outgoing, confident, friendly, and bubbly dog. She loves to work and play. She has a big personality and I am excited for all Shine and her owner, Cindy, have accomplished both in dog sports and in the breed ring. Shine had a whirlwind puppyhood, earning her Rally Novice title at 6.5 months of age with placements and scores of 98, 99, and 98! She finished her International and National Puppy Championship (IABCA) at a young age and at 8 months old won her first Best In Show (Puppy)!! In AKC conformation, she got her first five-point major by going Best of Opposite over Specials at just 10 months old ( and won her first Owner Handler Group 2 placement at 18 months! At her first Border Collie Nationals, Shine took 2nd place in a competitive 12-18 month class and 4th in Sweeps!!! Shine finished her championship in AKC at 18 months of age, all owner-handled, with another Group 2 O/H placement.
She earned her GCH in AKC before her 3rd birthday with limited showing and has since picked up many more wins to earn her Bronze and Silver Grand Championships, including making the Top 10 in the AKC Owner Handler Series in 2021 and nice win at the 2021 AKC Royal Canin Pre-Shows. At the 2021 AKC National Championship presented by Royal Canin, Shine makes a cut in the very competitive group and receives an Award Of Excellence! We are thrilled for Cindy and Shine!!!
As of the September 2022 Canine Chronicle Statistics, Shine is: #3 Owner-Handler Breed Ranking / #2 Bitch for OH-Breed Standings
At her first dock diving event at not yet a year old (and third time off a competition dock) she earns her Dock Senior title. A year later she gets a personal best of 21'9" and earns her Dock Senior Advanced title! At her first NADD National Championship, she makes the top 10 and places 8th overall in the Senior Division out of 200+ dogs. In 2020, Shine was in a three way tie for 1st place at the 2020 NADD Gulf Coast Regionals and become the RESERVE CHAMPION in the Senior division! For the 2020 NADD National Championship, she was also the RESERVE CHAMPION in the Senior Division out of 300+ dogs! At the 2021 NADD National Showcase, Shine was the RESERVE CHAMPION in Junior Air Retrieve!
Shine is also titled in Agility, Rally, Barn Hunt, Lure Coursing, Competition Obedience, and is a certified Therapy Dog.
Her mother, Spryte, has been such an asset to our breeding program with her drive, structure, and temperament and we are so thrilled to have had a few Spryte daughters (Shine, Pixel, and Cupcake) to move forward with into the next generation of dogs who are the whole package!
Check back for updates as Shine continues her career in dog sports and in the breed ring! Shine was bred in Fall 2022 for one litter to ReCon and was then retired from breeding. She was a fabulous mother and we are sure these 6 puppies will be just as talented as their parents! We retained a lovely little bitch named Firefly for our program.
