Welcome!  Oregon Shelties!

BelleBrae, means “Beautiful Hill” -- our country home nestled in the rolling hills of Oregon is the perfect setting for this most wonderful breed of dog. 

Our love of Shelties began in Dr. Bowen’s childhood with a family pet; many years later our “first child”,  Autumn was a Sheltie.  Our daughter  is responsible for bringing us into the sport of dog showing beginning the adventure with junior showmanship.  She confidently & beautifully handles our dogs and those belonging to others.

Our dogs are owner-handled to their Championships, are loved and socialized by our family to encourage great temperaments. We participate in education seminars locally and nationally to increase our knowledge of grooming, handling and care of these wonderful creatures.  We are enthusiastic about breeding dogs that closely represent the breed standard and particularly love AOAC(any other acceptable color) dogs, that is, other coat colors than sable.

We are members of the Pacific Northwest Shetland Sheepdog Club, Emerald Empire Shetland Sheepdog Club & Tualatin Kennel Club -- Dr. Bowen is the President of TKC, board member of PNWSSC & has served on the board of other clubs.
