Iver, the Foolish & Candy Sheltie Pet San Diego Pet Photographer Allison Shamrell ~ The Weblog


I just lately bought to {photograph} the cutest little 5-month-old Sheltie named Iver! I nearly fell in love with him throughout our photograph session, and I feel you’ll too. One in every of my favourite elements about Iver is his backstory, and the way his mother and father got here to search out him. They knew that they wished a canine for an extended, very long time. They appeared in all places in San Diego to search out the suitable match – however regardless of how dog-friendly our metropolis is, they realized that it’s really fairly troublesome to discover a place within the rental housing market that enables canines, particularly canines over 25 kilos. (Which I can personally relate to! My Bailey isn’t a small canine!) So after looking at shelter after shelter, Iver’s mother and father merely weren’t capable of finding the suitable pup. However you already know what? I actually consider that the suitable canine will discover its strategy to the suitable household. And after months of uncertainty, they lastly heard from a Sheltie breeder out of the blue – and what are you aware, it was lastly time for them to satisfy their canine. Iver and his mother and father go collectively like a glove. They’re all so candy, and so they love spending time collectively! (Which meant that I actually beloved spending time with them, too!)

We went to Previous Poway Park for the primary a part of Iver’s session, and every thing was going nice. However this park has a stream operating by the center of it, and on the day we visited, the stream mattress was damp with just a bit little bit of water. Iver, nevertheless, took one look and determined he was going to fake that there was nonetheless water in it! He jumped face-first into the mud! It definitely gave us all a scare! It was a giant drop, however fortunately he was utterly effective (and able to do it once more two minutes later, the little stinker!). However with a long-haired canine like him, just a little mud goes a good distance. So we paused the photograph session, reassessed, and determined to get collectively for the second half of our session on one other day. So I can fortunately promise that no canines have been harmed within the making of this photograph session… however not for lack of making an attempt! Thanks, Iver! 😉

So a couple of days later, we headed all the way down to the seaside in La Jolla, proper close to the place his mother works. He beloved operating round on the sand – in actual fact, Iver most well-liked to remain dry the entire time! (Apparently rivers & streams are attention-grabbing, however the ocean? To not be trusted.) He was not a fan of the water aside from dipping his toes in – and that’s completely okay. Actually, it helped us get some nice portraits of his stunning (dry) fur!

I don’t know the way Iver’s persona goes to develop as he grows up, since he has a lot rising left to do – however I do know that his mother and father are the good match for him. I’m so glad all of them discovered one another. And I like when individuals come to me with a pet, as a result of it’s just the start! It’s a real honor every time, as a result of I get a front-row seat to the start of an superb story. I couldn’t be extra excited for this candy household of three!


Did I point out that Iver is a beautiful canine?!


He additionally had a BLAST operating round on the seaside!


However he’s at all times happiest when he’s together with his mother and father. Candy boy.


Kate & Erick, thanks a lot for introducing me to your great pup! I’m excited to see you once more quickly! 🙂
