Linus" is my husband's second agility dog and his pride and joy. He is our Winnie's son and yes he does have a sister named "Lucy". Linus is a second generation Double Champion Versatility Excellent dog and the fourth for Pinelands Shelties.  Linus is such a character that he keeps us laughing with his antics. Linus is a rascal...outgoing, "fresh" but friendly, we always joke about how "Everybody loves Linus"!
AGILITY:
Linus is a super fast agility dog and he and Glen are crowd favorites at all our local agility trials. Linus and Glen continue to trade the top placements with some of the best handler dog teams in our area. Linus and Glen have competed in two AKC National Agility Championships and have qualified to try out for the AKC Agility World team twice.
This past May, Glen and Linus had a great showing at World team Tryouts, placing 4th in round two and qualifying for the finals on the first day. Linus and Glen made the wait list for the European Open.
UPDATE: Glen and Linus made it to the finals at this years AKC National Agility Championship! They had five clean rounds and ended up 11th out of 269 dogs.
HERDING:
Linus comes from a long line of shelties with great herding instinct which he has passed on to many of his offspring that have tried herding. He has sired three shelties that have been ranked in AKC Herding. He earned his Herding Started Title with three second place wins in large classes and has also been ranked in Herding. 
Conformation: Linus finished his AKC Breed Championship with back to back Specialty wins!  He was owner handled all the way.
