Starsong is a small breeding program aiming for a happy, healthy Shetland Sheepdog that closely resembles the breed standard both in looks and character, and is a joy to live with.
My love for the breed started in the mid-80’s when as a child I got my first dog, a tricolour sheltie from Snowglow’s kennel. I have also owned Rough Collies and a Rottweiler. Since I was a kid I had an interest for breeding and showing. In ’95 I was introduced to a new cat breed in Finland, the Ragdoll. I was totally sold to this wonderful breed and showed and bred Ragdolls actively for over a decade.
The dream of my own Sheltie puppies finally came true in 2003. I had a possibility to acquire an older champion female, blue merle C.I.B. Lundecock’s Rash Line and I had two litters from her. She was not only beautiful and very sound, but also an excellent mother to her puppies. She produced Starsong In Love Again, and the line has continued from her.
I also got a sable with very nice pedigree, Sunsweet Morning Glory. She produced CH Starsong Whisky Bandit, Starsong Canadian Mist and Starsong She Is My Sin, and Starsong Flame Of Passion that went to Smartteams kennel. Her daughter is also C.I.B. Multi CH Sunsweet Biggest Dream, top Sheltie in Finland 2006 & 2010.
Our kennel is small with only a few dogs at home, and no kennel housing. As I believe it is the dogs’ best interest to live a life of a loved pet in family environment, we place some of the most promising puppies in co-ownership or with breeding terms.
