Ch. Sunburst Acadia Here I Come- "Carrie"


Ch. Sunburst Acadia Here I Come
“Carrie”
(8/29/1999 - 9/7/2009)

Pure for sable, 14”, eyes CERF normal, OFA good,

Carrie touched the lives and hearts of many people. I was fortunate to be able to purchase her from Sharon Crawford, Sunburst shelties, when Carrie was just 12 weeks old. At the time I just didn’t know how lucky I truly was. I purchased her with the intent of breeding her to Payson (Ch. Acadia's Bright Idea, RA, NA, NAJ)- she was- and this breeding produced 3 champions in one litter*.

Carrie was well tempered, well adjusted, a sheltie who exemplifies the standard, and who provided a solid backbone for my breeding program, and continued a tradition of quality for Sunburst Shelties in Phoenix, AZ. Carrie was a devoted mother who LOVED puppies. Always a nurturer, she became the nurturer of the human spirit to a family. It was her steady, fun, and loving temperament that was her most valuable contribution to all who have had the pleasure of being a part of her life.

Carrie is a wonderful example of all the good purebred dogs have to offer and is everything a breeder and a dog owner could want.

Carrie was the anchor in my breeding program - 5 consecutive generations of Acadia Bred Champion Girls- and 7 consecutive champion girls in all.
