Shetland Sheepdogs

puppy playtime

















Because of limited space, very few litters are born here. All puppies are eye tested between 6 and 8 weeks of age and reared in the house where they become accustomed to visitors and everyday sounds and activities, helping them to grow in confidence and hopefully develop into well-adjusted adults. My main concern is to breed healthy shelties with good temperaments,  free from known hereditary diseases and as near to the breed standard as possible.  All breeding stock are hip scored and eye tested regularly.

All new owners are given a Puppy Sales Wallet containing Kennel Club registration certificate, pedigree certificate, Contract of Sale, health screening certificates, instructions on the care of the puppy, explanation of any endorsements and 4 weeks insurance cover.

The future welfare and protection of any puppies I breed is of paramount importance to me and puppies always leave my home on the understanding that if for any reason the new owners experience a change in circumstances and the puppy needs to be re-homed, then I must be contacted and given the opportunity to either take the puppy back or assist in finding a suitable new home.  All new owners receive detailed instructions for the care of the puppy and are always encouraged to contact me should they have any worries or concerns.  There is no time-limit and I will always help in whatever way I can for the lifetime of the puppy. 

If you feel a Sheltie is the breed for you and you can offer a permanent, secure and loving home, then please do not hesitate to contact me and I will offer any help I can.

5 sable/white bitches, just hours old - two weighing  7 oz and three smaller ones weighing between 3 & 4 oz
The size difference is quite noticeable in this picture..

Picture below shows the puppies aged 4 weeks and 3 days - the one on the far right and the one in the
middle are the two bigger girls.  One of the puppies is staying with us, at least for the time being, and all 
of the other puppies are reserved.

Litter Born 19/02/2014 - Sable/White dog puppy

Sire:  Lowick Gold Braid of Milesend 
Dam: Tachnamadra Evisu 

Sadly, following a very difficult birth, the first little dog puppy was stillborn, leaving us with one sable/white dog weighing 6 1/2 oz and, following a caesarean section, one sable/white bitch weighing 6 1/4 oz. Unfortunately, the little bitch puppy failed to thrive and 8 days later, on 27/02/2014, she lost her fight for life, leaving us with the only surviving puppy, our very precious sable/white dog. This is the hidden and heartbreaking side of breeding which very few people see and only those who have experienced it will appreciate and understand.

Above photo taken when the puppies were 5 days old before we lost the little bitch puppy who still had not reached her birth weight.
. Meantime, the dog puppy continued to thrive and gain weight and the size difference is very noticeable in this picture.
