1910 Shetland Sheepdog Registrations

By 1910, the Sheltie was on a roll, registration-wise. However, only a small fraction of the dogs registered contributed to the future of the breed. Consequently, I have given the total registered each month in parentheses, but actually listed registration data only for those that I can verify are behind American pedigrees today.
