BIS BISS Am/Can Ch Sterling Rumor Has It ROMX “Rumor” garnered him the honor of producing the number one breeder/owner handled Non- Sporting dog of all time.  In addition, Rumor’s son, BIS BISS Am/Eng Ch Paray’s I Told You So ROMX “Buster” was the first Am-bred import to win the group at Crufts.   Dogs bred by Paul have also won multiple times at the BFCA and Paul continually gives back to the breed by participating in breed education and grooming seminars both domestically and worldwide.


Kim Furlong has a bachelor’s degree in marketing and will handle the marketing and operations for Stirling while Paul continues to groom and handle at the shows.  Kim has owned and campaigned several All Breed Best in Show winners.  Kim is also involved in many philanthropic endeavors and her name has become synonymous in the sport with integrity and quality.  Kim will continue dual breeds while also breeding Shetland Sheepdogs under the Masterpiece prefix where she is a breeder of merit and a member of the parent and local clubs.
