Arttie was sold to Diane Fitzpatrick as a 4 month old. We appreciate all the hard work Diane has put into Arttie. He began his career with a CCA class placement with then co-owner Matt Stelter. Arttie went to visit Nick Joines & Joel McCarthy of Sunway Shelties to finish his championship in a matter of a few weeks just after CCA. Arttie then went home to grow up and attain his Canadian championship. In Feb 2010, Diane entered him at Canadian CC National under a person whose opinion she heavily valued, Barry Hastings. Under the guidance of Kim Wendling (Lynphil Shelties), Arttie won Best of Breed. Arttie’s next show was the CCA with Carl Williford (Twin City Collies) judging. Under the guidance of Nick Joines, Arttie won an AOM. He accomplished all of those things before the age of 2! Arttie has sired several litters and stands at stud in Canada at Alfenloch Collies.
