Sheila/Sheba, a border collie and cattle dog mix, wears a dog hiking pack with lays down on a rocky path


Sheila (now Sheba) is a border collie/cattle dog mix who retired to Eugene in 2008. While she was quite the rascal at first, with a lot of love, patience and the right training collar she quickly formed a bond with her human companion that will last several lifetimes. Sheba’s favorite activities include cross-country skiing (especially when she gets to break trail), muddy trail runs, chasing the ball, and cleaning out peanut butter jars. She is also one of the best companions for an afternoon nap! She is looking forward to the day she can move closer to her cousin, retired CK9 Mason.
