Linda with CH Solange Spring Fling & CH Solange Maraschino

Welcome to Solange Shelties.  We are located in the lovely university town of Chapel Hill, NC where my husband Rob and I are both faculty members at UNC School of Medicine. I grew up with collies as have many sheltie folks. Following medical school, residency and fellowship (and simultaneously raising two kids), I finally had the time and means to devote to this wonderful hobby. 

Shortly after obtaining my first sheltie, I joined the Triangle Shetland Sheepdog Club and became quite consumed with the breed. I began learning everything I could as I embarked on this venture. I read voraciously, attended obedience and agility classes, matches, specialties and seminars. Soon I knew I wanted to try my hand at conformation and breeding.   

I feel my science and medical background has been an asset in understanding canine genetics and many of the health issues encountered in our breed. We breed only on a small scale due to our demanding work commitments and our desire to be able give attention to each dog. We even bought a beach house in Oak Island, NC so that our vacations can always include our dogs!

Game of "Tag" anyone?
