Dewr is a welsh word and means 'brave, strong, mighty, brave man, hero'
Anja got interested of the swedish Elvira x Jim litter and bought Dew.
He was brought to Finland as a puppy when Anja came back home from the UK, but in Wales she had fallen in love with a young bitch and bought her, so she asked me, Jessica, who had just lost my old dog Marlo if I wanted this swedish funny looking puppy - and I sure did.
Dew is a very keen and stylish intensive sheepdog, never gives up and bears a high educability. Since from the start he has been headstrong and clever, very confident about himself and isn't afraid to be faced by sheep, works every size flocks and lambs, good in pens and crowded places.
Also a natural and effective cattle dog. Selfconfident and keeps the animals very calm, reads and treats them well.
Since Dew is very stubborn and has a strong will to work, he was not an easy dog for me as my first own sheepdog...
The golden tip I got from a wise man was, that I simply had to be more stubborn than my dog to get through him mentally - and now days he is my right hand when it comes to working sheep and I can trust him with everything.
Dew had his ISDS ROM test done in England, May 2016.
He is an easy dog to live with, and to travel, always behaves well. Since from a puppy he's been very cool in all types of public transportations that we have in Helsinki and he's not afraid of the heavy traffick or crowds, nor the different surfaces or noice, etc.
Dew trials in the Finnish SPKY's class III and UK's open.
He has done a little bit agility as a youngster and competes in class 2 Large (Fin). He's fast and agile, has a natural good jumping style and carries himself well, and does not lose his head despite the speed. A very fast learner.
Dew is a regular showman in the ELMA-countryside show held in Helsinki every year
