We breed to promote and preserve the Shetland Sheepdog breed per our National Associations exacting guidelines. From time to time we have puppies that do not meet the specifications to carry on as a breeding/show dog. At these times we must place these puppies as companion animals. The dogs listed here are available to loving homes where they can fulfill their calling as companions. Our puppies are loved first and foremost, They are the product of many tears of efforts to produce happy, healthy representatives of the breed. We have bred ASSA National winners, all breed Best In Show dogs, dogs that have excelled and shown their virtues in agility, obedience, herding and many other venues. Our dogs have that special temperament that fits easily into your lifestyle, The type of dogs that you will love and cherish for many years to come. Safe with all children, they have a solid temperament that can always be trusted, with high intelligence, eagerness to please, and a joy of life and family. They are agile and well built with standard correct bodies, that are built to do the work their breed was meant to do. Of course we breed for the conformation ring and strive for the ideal, but the bigger picture of a happy healthy dog is of utmost importance. These puppies may not be showable due to size, bite, or coloring but they are every bit champions in their role as companions. Enjoy our puppies' pictures and if you would like to consider one for your home please read the terms below.

Disclaimer

Puppies will not be held before purchase, all dogs are available until sold.  References will be asked for and checked, no puppy will be sold sight unseen. We must meet you to adopt one of our puppies. It is very important for us to develop a good relationship with our puppy buyers and we feel that coming and meeting our dogs in person allows you to get to know us better and the type of home that your puppy has been raised in. We hope that you will come back to us like many have for a second or third dog.

Our pet puppies are generally available for $1500 on a spay/neuter agreement, although sables are $1800. Please check out our Sales Contract.

When you have chosen your puppy or dog and we have approved your home, a non refundable deposit of $200 will be due immediately to hold the dog if you cannot take him home that day. The balance would be due within a weeks time. This should be long enough to get the balance to us and make arrangements for pick up or delivery. This initial amount is deducted from the original price/total amount due and is meant as "good faith" for the final purchase. This will pertain to puppies of any age. If after placing the deposit the buyer does not follow through with the purchase of the dog within a weeks time, the deposit will be forfeited.

This is provided on room and time available. Any additional days spent with us past two weeks will be charged $10 a day board and must be paid in full before taking delivery of dog. If the purchaser does not come back for the dog after 20 days from agreed upon time and no further agreements have been made the dog may be resold.

All puppies/dogs will come up-to-date on shots and if old enough on Iverhart Plus or Interceptor for heartworm prevention and Frontline or Advantage for flea and tick prevention. All dogs have had dew claws removed shortly after birth and are raised in our home with our 5 children, where they are held constantly and accustomed to familiar noises. We take great pride in their health and happiness and feel that you will clearly see it when you meet them. When we place our puppies much thought and years of experience has gone into the proper breedings to produce the best possible puppies and then great care in finding them the best possible homes.

You can't buy loyalty they say
I bought it though the other day;
You can't buy friendship, tried and true,
Well just the same, I bought that too.

I made my bid and on the spot
Bought love and faith and the whole job lot
Of happiness, so all in all
The purchase price was pretty small

I bought a single trusting heart
That gave devotion from the start.
If you think these things are not for sale
Buy a brown eyed Sheltie with a wagging tail
