'Opal '


Whelped 02/04/2018 


'Opal ' is a line bred girl of whom I'm very pleased to Co-own with her breeder Nicole Pearson of Hartly Kennels . 

Always consistently recognised under Breed Specialists Opal was 5th in Baby Puppy class at 12 Shetland Sheepdog 2018 National held in WA under Bred Specialist Monica Mattfolk .
Critique from WA National .
'3 month old. Nice type, feminine with a nice expression and sweet eyes. Nice neck and topline. Very nice angulations and movements. Well carried tail. Nice coat and colour . Lovely temperament and attitude for her age.' 

Opal was Minor in Show at the SSCV 60 th Champ Show November 2018 under breed specalist Jo Hardy of Sandwick kennels UK .

Critique from SSCV 2018 Speciality .
Superior, 7 month old baby of top quality who excels in breed type, shape and outline. So feminine with beautiful dark, almond shaped eye with flat skull and well defined underjaw. Correct level head planes and with neat ear set and carriage. Angulation so pleasing all through though a tad more length needed to upper arm for perfection but is certainly adequate. Such an elegant reach of neck with well balanced proportions and flowing outline finished with gentle sweep over loin. Pleasing and well put together in rear, she is all quality. Needs to concentrate on the job in hand and is quite easily distracted at present but was sympathetically handled to get the very best from her. A daughter of my Reserve CC winning bitch and so like her in so many ways - a real promise for the future, just loved her. Best Minor in Show.

Opal has had breaks from the ring due to Maternal Duties since 2019. She returned to the Ring in May 2023
