You can use sheepdog VDIs with this definition in a xml file

#    <disk type='network' device='disk'>
#      <driver name='qemu' type='raw' cache='none'/>
#      <source protocol='sheepdog' name='sheepdog-vdi'>
#        <host name='localhost' port='7000'/>
#      </source>
#      <target dev='vda' bus='virtio'/>
#      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x05' 
#    </disk>

Virt-Manager cant handle sheepdog VDIs at the moment
