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

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!
Slash V Blackberry
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).
Ranch Waylon Jennings of Blacksheep x
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.
