Moorwood Shelties -
The VCA website is a comprehensive site covering all aspects
of breeding, showing, obedience and dog ownership. Up
to date information regarding events in the dog world can be found here,
as well as breed information and standards,
rules and regulations, and links to many other useful and interesting sites.
This is a must - see site for all dog owners &
has a wealth of information on everything you could possibly need to know.
The official site of the Shetland Sheepdog Club of Victoria
(SSCV). The site includes a brief breed overview, the history
of the Shetland Sheepdog in Victoria, current club information and results
from SSCV shows. Also available are articles
of interest to all dog owners, and the oppurtunity to purchase club merchandise.
The Shetland Sheepdog Club of Victoria runs a rescue
service for abandoned and neglected shelties. This website is
where you'll find shelties who have been mistreated by their previous owners
and desperately need to be 'adopted' into
new families. Thankfully, there aren't too many shelties in this situation.
If you wish to learn more about the function of
the sheltie rescue program, or read about the many success stories of re-homed
shelties, this is the place to go.
All show / conformation dogs are bred to a specific standard. This is a
link to the Australian Breed Standard for the
Shetland Sheepdog. The standard outlines such things as: height, general
appearance, ears, coat, movement, eye shape,
permissable colours, etc. It is a description of how the ideal dog should
be, and all shelties are bred with this standard
Louanda Kennels would like to draw their visitors
attention to the Endangered
Dog Breeds of Australia website. The
association has been set up to oppose B.S.L, or Breed Specific Legislation.
Although currently the only breed that seems
nationally discriminated against is the American Pit Bull Terrier, the
evidence from places such as England and America,
where B.S.L has long been in place, show that sooner or later the legislation
will spread to other breeds whom are totally
undeserving of the restrictions placed upon them. At Louanda Kennels, we
believe the fault generally lies with the
owner - not the breed, and would like to voice our support for the EDBA.
