Please note:  I work closely with a few other people in my breeding program and I am on top of what's happening on the breeding scene within the United States.  If I have nothing available, please do not hesitate to contact me for places to look for your perfect dog.  I am happy to help you get connected so that you can make an educated decision on a puppy, even if it's not from me. 


You will find that this attitude is quite common among English Shepherd breeders and it's a refreshing difference from the fierce and sometimes ugly competition you can find in other breeds.  We seem to want good dogs going where they are needed. Most of us are farmers, and I think that's the difference.  We are used to working as a friendly community!

Upcoming Litters

English Shepherds, Autumn 2018

Red Bank Purple Haze

I am starting a list of people for this litter. Hazy will be bred to a dog with a strong work ethic and a biddable personality.  I am currently looking at a stud dog to choose.  Hazy is trustworthy with poultry and cats and a little on the shy side, though I believe her shyness is more a lack of early socialization than a genetic trait.  She is very laid back and non-reactive, the essence of a thoughtful, reasonable dog. Stay tuned for more details!

Autumn/Winter 2018

Slash V Blackberry Bramble

If you are looking for a gritty cowdog and want an injection of heritage pedigrees, you won't want to miss this exciting litter.  Health checks on Briar are pending and after they are complete, we will move forward with this incredible opportunity.  I am intentionally keeping our plans a secret at the moment, but when you hear what it is you will definitely know why I am super stoked about this litter!!!  I am breeding this litter for dogs that will fancy low heel and be strong on the head, be biddable and sweet pets, and may or may not have watchdog instinct (Briar doesn't really have it, never really met a stranger).

Spring 2019

Panther Ranch Waylon Jennings of Blacksheep x

Cimarron Laura Chavez

We are gathering health clearances for these two and waiting for Waylon to grow up a little bit.  Temperaments and pedigrees for this litter should make for a good nick!  Laid back, thoughtful, deliberate workers who are tolerant kid dogs and truly rules-oriented with the stock.  Both of these dogs are closet clowns but try to keep up appearances of dignity most days.  Both are silent workers with large force of personality and I expect offspring should be able to handle all types of livestock.  Both are trustworthy with poultry and cats.

Our mentors are Elaine Reynolds of Cimarron English Shepherds, Tish Toren of Blacksheep English Shepherds, and for Aussies I rely heavily on advice from my good friend Terry Martin of Slash V Australian Shepherds.  I sometimes take pups and older dogs from Cimarron and Blacksheep English Shepherds for training, socialization and placement.  I have access to urban and suburban areas and I have been a dog trainer for 25 years, so it is easy for me to ensure that puppies and older dogs get ongoing training and work in the areas of socialization, basic obedience, and exposure to cats, chickens, hogs etc.  I start housetraining, settling indoors and out, and all dogs are trained to ride well in cars and tolerate crates.
