Adiame Shetland Sheepdogs is a small hobby kennel located just outside the Adirondacks in historic Ballston Spa, NY. My dogs go to work with me as often as possible. As a result they are very well socialized.  We compete in Agility, Herding, Rally, Obedience, and Tracking.




I became infatuated with shelties from a young age. Lassie was one of my favorite show's on TV. While I could not have a rough coated collie my grandparents bred Shelties or as I called them as a boy 'miniature collies'. I later came to realize they were not miniature collies but a different and distinct breed all their own. My love of Shelties continued and shortly after I graduated from college after returning to the United States from Japan I purchased my first sheltie from Millennium Shelties in central NY. I was bitten hard by the sheltie bug then and quickly developed 'multiple sheltie syndrome'. My second sheltie and my foundation bitch was purchased, very gratefully, from Amanda Patterson-Inzinna of Canami Shelties. Since then my pack has grown.



Bred for Excellence!


Our dogs compete in Conformation, Agility, Herding, Obedience, Rally, Scentwork, and Tracking.  But the most important part of them is their amazing personalities and the love they provide with all their heart.
