Mr. Miller has been a dog enthusiast all his life. From an early age, his parents raised various terriers. In the early seventies while residing in France, he fixed his sights upon the dogs that he has raised for over thirty years, Salukis. Under the prefix of Shandell, and coupled with the French Saluki kennel, Arab Bahari, he still occasionally breeds and shows. In addition, he has owned Afghans, Dalmatians and Italian Greyhounds.

In the mid-seventies and throughout the eighties, Mr. Miller showed not only his Salukis, but dogs in several breeds for clients. In 1988, he applied to the American Kennel Club and was approved to judge Salukis. Since then, he is approved for the Hound Group, Non-Sporting Group, German Shorthaired Pointers, Gordon Setters, Norfolk and Norwich Terriers, Brittany, Cocker Spaniels, Curley Coated Retrievers, English Setters, Irish Setters, Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retievers, Vizsla, Weimaraner, and Pugs. He has held many offices in the Grand River Kennel Club, currently President, and is the show chairperson for their cluster weekend. Moreover, he is the Vice-President of the Cuyahoga Valley Hound Association.

Mr. Miller has officiated in the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Belgium, Italy, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Hungary, Romania, Russia, Australia, South Korea and China. He is published in both English and French in professional periodicals as well as dog publications. Moreover, he has given seminars on the Saluki. He travels frequently to North Africa due to his association with sighthounds and conducts tours of Marrakech, Morocco and its surroundings. As an avid traveler, he has visited many kennels in India.

Professionally, Mr. Miller is the department coordinator of World Languages for a school system in the Cleveland, Ohio metropolitan area. He has also instructed on the university undergraduate and graduate levels. Furthermore, he was on the Advisory Board of the Montreux School of Business, Montreux, Switzerland. He holds a Master's Degree in Education with a specialization in French as well as a Certificat Du Premier Degré from the Université De Strasbourg, France. He is a translator and has conferred on projects for officials at the United Nations as well as the French government in relation to indigenous canine breeds of the Sahara. At the World Dog Show in Paris 2011, he served as a translator for the Poodle World Congress.

In his spare time, he is an amateur photographer whose work has been published internationally. Mr. Miller speaks French, German, Italian and English.
