We love it when we get surprised by a BIS winner. Today that dog is the Shetland Sheepdog, CH Braeleen Foreign Intrigue.

CH Braeleen Foreign Intrigue

Judge Harriet Campbell chose, the Sheltie, “Brian”, as her Best In Show at today’s iteration of the Ephrata-Moses Lake Kennel Club. Her other finalists were the Irish Setter, Ashton Peaceful Easy Feeling, the Black & Tan Coonhound, CH Silver Ridge Showtyme At Windbourne, the Bernese Mountain Dog, CH Sendache’s Key To Success, the Bedlington Terrier, Tiffanie’s Rico Suave, the Pomeranian, CH Oakrose High N Mighty, and Saturday’s BIS winner, the Standard Poodle, CH Randeen Tristar Affirmation.


Shelties used to be incredibly popular, and for good reason. They are a manageable size, amazingly versatile, and just as pretty as they can be. They are also a triple threat, competitive in conformation, obedience, and agility. We’re sure that anyone who encounters Brian at a show will be in love with Shelties once more.

Congratulations to breeder/owner Kathleen Brown, co-owner Cathy Dupree, and handler Jan Williams.


  1. I watched a beautiful little Sheltie win HIT and High Combined at the Terry-All Kennel Club show this weekend, so they are still a threat in obedience!

  2. And I believe that should be conformation, obedience, agility AND HERDING!

  3. Sorry to say this, but I'm happy they don't win as much as other breeds. They're not at all like the original sheltie here in Europe, like they should be. Unfortunately.

  4. Lots of American shelties have done well at shows in Europe.
