Shannalee Waller-Michalsky of Akadia Shelties
I started showing shelties as a junior handler in the 1980's. Being involved in junior showmanship kept me out of trouble and focused on a goal. The years I competed I was ranked number 2 and number 6 in the nation.
Later, as my life started to change I began breeding and showing professionally. I was lucky enough to pilot the youngest sheltie in our breed history to an all breed Best in Show when she was 8 1/2 months old. Her name is BIS Ch. Iona I Can Shine.
Over the years, dogs have been the main focus of my life and happiness. I currently am campaigning the number 7 sheltie in our breed in limited showing.
