Our sable family of Shelties is based on the Barwood bloodline while our AOAC (any other allowed color) Sheltie family is based on a combination we did involving Shadow Hills Polaris ROM and our foundation bi-black female who is a daughter of the late CH Aynsworth Silver Moonlight ROM.

We have sable and white puppies now ~ they will be ready mid-January to mid-February.
We are planning a litter of bi-blacks, tri-colors, blue merles, and bi-blues soon. If a litter results they will be ready April and May 2014.

Mark your calendars for two weeks and check back. As breeders of show dogs, one of our responsibilities is to make available for adoption young and older adults from time to time. We do this annually so that we can accomodate the new generation while we continue to improve and strive for breed perfection. Our adults are already spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations, a recent dental cleaning and exam, and a health certificate.

No shipping is available on companions due to a new regulation put into place November 18, 2013. A companion buyer must see the puppy or adult in person. If you are interested in a companion puppy, you are invited to our home, or in most cases we will be available to meet you part way for a nominal fee to cover our travel expenses.

Puppies and adults come with a health certificate from our veterinarian. Each puppy or adult has had age appropriate vaccinations, has a current application of flea/tick preventative, has been dewormed, and if old enough they have been started on heartworm prevention.

Mark your calendars... in two weeks we will be featuring several lovely companions on our website that we are making available for adoption to approved companion homes. Adoption fees cover the individual's spay or neuter, dental, current heartworm test, up to date vaccinations, veterinarian physical exam, and an Ohio State Veterinarian Health Certificate. New owner will receive all original documentation to supply to their veterinarian.
