About Us

Welcome to Southwinds Shelties!

Tina Komorek is the Practice Manager at Northwoods Animal Hospital of Cary, North Carolina. She joined the staff in May of 2016. Prior to that, she was the Hospital Director, VP of Wellington Animal Hospital in Cary from 1996 - 2016 until the owner retired. She has seen the heartbreak and expense that poorly bred dogs can bring to a family. The health of our dogs is very important to us. All of our dogs are tested for genetic disorders, such as hip dysplasia, thyroid, vWD, and eye abnormalities before they are bred.

Temperament is extremely important to us because our dogs are a part of the family. They live in our home, along with myself (Tina) and my wonderful husband Chris. Our grown children are Meghan, who is a veterinarian in South Carolina and Katie, who is in graduate school studying Music Therapy. They both love shelties and are still a big part of Southwinds.  All puppies are born and raised in our home where they are given lots of love and attention by our family. When the puppies go to their new homes, they have been well socialized. They make wonderful companion pets or show dogs for their new owners.

The objective at Southwinds is to produce happy, healthy Sheltie puppies that are conformationally correct with loving temperaments. Our puppies are available for conformation, agility, obedience, other performance events, and for companionship. All of our pet puppies are sold with a spay and neuter contract. All of our puppies are vet checked and given their age appropriate vaccines and deworming at Wellington Animal Hospital before leaving. Companion pets normally go to their new homes at around 8 to 12 weeks of age. Conformation show puppies usually stay awhile longer.  We provide a health guarantee and a lifetime of support.

We are members in good standing with:

American Kennel Club - Breeder Of Merit (AKC) 
American Shetland Sheepdog Association (ASSA)
Triangle Shetland Sheepdog Club of North Carolina (TSSC) .
