Being a registered AKC Breeder of Merit and a very small show home, we're into quality, not quantity. We have only one or two (at most) litters per year; sometimes none. We're looking for the elusive show dog where we also get some extremely well-bred, healthy pets in the same litter who need forever homes. Also, we sometimes have older puppies who were grown out for show that we find might not have what it takes to be competitive in the ring and who now need a nice, forever pet home. Lastly, once in awhile we have an older retired show dog who is no longer competing who would just love to go with a nice family who would take him/her into their home to be their favorite couch potato forever.
Our dogs are tested for their age-appropriate health clearances (i.e. hips, eyes, MDR-1, VwD, thyroid, etc.) and reside in pet, performance, and conformation homes. Likewise, all pet quality pups and older dogs are wormed/given necessary shots before placement and are placed into their new homes on a spay/neuter agreement. It's definitely healthier for the pet and so much easier for you!
We reserve the right to place our dogs at our discretion to make sure of a perfect fit. We want you to be happy with your pet and we want our dog to be happy in its new home and environment. We expect these placements to be a lifetime commitment over the life of your pet. In return you will have the reference of our many years of experience to help you and guide you over its lifetime in case you ever have questions, concerns, etc. Many of those who have our dogs have become some of our very best friends!
Many families join us each year in August at our local sheltie club's annual picnic where they can learn some of the latest health tips and latest grooming techniques, etc., and also play some sheltie games with their pets. It's a great time for the whole family!
If we don't have the pet you're looking for, we can get you in touch with someone who does. And remember,
Shelties are like potato chips...
You can never have just one!!!
