Midas is the epitome of the perfect dog, with a stable balanced temperament, incredible
intelligence, gorgeous conformation, and appropriate working drive.   He is a big boned, broad
Shiloh with a heart of gold.

He is by far the largest dog in our neighborhood, and everyone knows him.  Because of his
calm, gentle nature, Kelsey often takes him to the coffee and news kiosk at the ferry stop.  
Midas is an unofficial greeter and always a conversation starter.  We have grown accustomed
to hearing, "Oh my, look at his head", and next "Look at those feet!".   Our favorite remark to
date was when a group of people exited a tour bus and one patron shouted out,  "Are they
walking a bear?"  Since that time we've had people guess "wolf" and most recently "Shetland
pony".   But my favorite reaction was the woman who put her hand to her chest and proclaimed
with tears in her eyes, "he touches my soul."  That he does.

As our alpha male Shiloh, he is a defender of his home and his girl Breeze.  His sheer size is
enough of a deterrent, and he has earned respect in our neighborhood through his calm,
confident demeanor.    Midas earned his Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog International
certifications.

Midas sired his first litter by Breeze in 2007 - 8 gorgeous puppies who have his fabulous, dark
pigment.

He is a breed, ISSDC champion, and NAKC International Champion. During his show carer he
was a multiple Best of Breed winner, Best Veteran, Best Progeny and Best in Show winner.  
Midas is a 2009 NSBR Top Dog.  

He is a great friend and companion and the love of our lives.

Midas is selectively available at stud.
