~ About Us~
In 1985 I bought my first Shetland Sheepdog. Quite by accident
she was "Toy" size. By most standards she was not considered
show quality, but as more and more people learned of the smaller
sized Shelties, they became extremely popular. They could have a
"Little Lassie" in their home or apartment that
wasn't such a "big" responsibility.
Through the years I have tried different bloodlines and
bigger sizes, but felt the "Toy" size was the best for me,
and more and more people these days.
My toy sized Shelties are just as good quality, just as beautiful,
(especially my favorites, white-factored and color-headed whites)
have wonderful personalities, and are just as sturdy as the
standard sizes...just in a smaller "package".
I have been a member of the Toy Sheltie Club of America for
many, many years, and was happy to introduce other toy sized
Sheltie breeders to the Club, including Tracie West and
Charlotte Cannon. Charlotte then went on to later take the reins
and become President of the Club in order for it to continue
when Connie (the original President) decided she was unable
to devote the time needed to successfully run the Club.
WE ARE NOT A PUPPY MILL!
Our puppies are born, raised and handled in a family oriented
environment in my home. I feel very blessed that all of my girls have
given birth naturally, on their own, including my tiny, toy 7 lb females.
My females are excellent mommies who have cared for their babies
with little or no extra help from me.
I have also been blessed with healthy, happy puppies of all
colors and sizes. I have focused on the white-factored and
colored headed whites (they are my personal favorites).
I have strictly and selectively bred my males and females
to assure the best quality puppies, that will become
a loved and cherished family member...and beautiful as well!
Though our bloodlines are from generations of small, and toy-sized,
Shelties, no one can guarantee the actual size that a puppy
will eventually mature at. Although, repeated breedings can help and
give you a better idea of what any particular parent/pairing
will consistantly produce. I have learned, from my years of experience,
that it is more reliable in predicting the size of my puppies from
using and utilizing my own long-standing, proven bloodlines
and those of a few, other select breeders.
