Bella Shea joined our border collie family in 2011

Call name Shea, named after the only woman that ever made my brother happy!! and best sis-in-law I could ask for!!

Our first lilac, she is a beautiful girl with lots of tri color trim

I describe her color as chocolate milk with a swirl of caramel, yummm yummm!

Shea, and her handsome slate blue merel brother Rio (Bearfoot Border Collies) were shipped to us from

our Texas friends at CRL Border Collies. Her mother Hope is an ee Red (gold color) so we know Shea carries eeRed and we

look forward to some fantastic pups from her. (Shea had 2 gold (ee red) pups in her first litter!)

Shea has a nice all around temperament. She is playful, but not hyper. She loves attention, but is not needy or demanding, nor a ‘drama queen’.

She loves to go for walks, play chase with the other dogs, and loves  toys. Shea housebroke herself!

Please excuse the out of focus cell phone pictures, but wanted to show some of Shea’s personality off.   She loves to collect toys, but don’t worry,

she is never possessive or aggressive about them!


2015 update:  We love Shea and her brother Rio so much we decided to add little sister Mesa to the family.

Mesa is a slate blue merle with one blue eye, she has much the same personality as her big sister and we are enjoying her immensely!!

Mesa will have her own page next year
