Hammy has that sweet and endearing Sheltie expression


Hami was given his name as a five week old puppy due to the evidence of a sense of humour. This little puppy was full of antics that just made us laugh, and he was so cute and fuzzy (like a teddy bear hamster).


This beautiful young boy was so smart as a teenager, he quickly received his Rally Novice title at just 6 months of age and got some really good scores. He loves people and will work for anyone, but he is not bossy and overwhelming. Hami is truly a gentle soul.

Hami finished his Canadian Championship at 21 months of age and while out of coat (notice how naked he appears in his show photos)...which just proves to us that his structure and movement are so nice that he didn't need to cover it up and be in full bloom for the judges to notice him. Hami also received two Best of Opposite wins, and one Best Of Breed win in the conformation ring as a Jr. Puppy. 

Currently in training for agility, Hami loves to make us laugh as he would rather run along the top of a tunnel than through it ... now that takes a great deal of balance!

When strangers visit our house, it is usually Hami who jumps up on the couch to greet them by jamming his head under their arm and snuggling up for a good cuddle session. Hami thinks he is a golden retriever in the greeting department, he loves people and is completely bold and outgoing. 

Hami is a sable merle with two brown eyes, which is allowed in the conformation show ring. Had Hami been born with two blue eyes, he would not have been able to have earned his Canadian Conformation Championship. We find this ruling to be absurd because the eye colour of a dog has no bearing on the health, structure or temperament of a dog. We are so proud of our boy Hami that we had this video made to help promote the sable merle coat colour and Hami

... because Hami is a " Sheltie in True Colours " :  youtube video link

 As a Stud Dog:

Hami has proven himself as a stud dog at such a young age, just turning 4 years of age in December 2011,  Hami has produced two Canadian Conformation Champions (both winning their championships before 18 months of age):

Ch Herdabout High Speed Chase (aka Ticket)

Ch Herdabout Tri N 4 Independence (aka Indie)

As well Hami has sired several outstanding performance dogs.

Hami is available at stud to approved bitches -- please see Our Boys Page for details on breeding to our males.

He is a sable merle and when bred to a tri colour female has a good track record of a well mixed "rainbow coloured litter", producing 5 to 9 puppies in a litter with 50% blue merle puppies, 25% tri colour puppies, 15% sable puppies, and 10% sable merle puppies (usually with brown eyes).
