Thank you for your interest in Silver Trails Shelties and we look forward to meeting you.  

Hobby/Show breeding is under attack on many fronts: Pet Limits, Mandatory Spay Neuter Laws with 'good breeder' hoops to jump through, expensive kennel and dog licensing, litter permits, inspections, requirements for a business license which can get you into zoning trouble, people posing as buyers (Citizens On Patrol), and more. We are in the fight of our dogs’ lives. We need to educate our Legislators now more then ever.  We ask that you DO NOT CONTRIBUTE to HSUS or PETA AS THEIR MAIN GOAL IS the extinction of domestic animals. Do contribute to the NAIA which organization promotes animal welfare.  KNOW THE DIFFERENCE. Preserve your right to own a companion pet by supporting hobby breeders.  Keep hobby breeders alive, stop animal cruelty not breeding. SUPPORT THE AKC. Stand up and do what is right!
