We are also transparent and easily accessible to answer any questions. Where we place our pups is extremely important to us. When inquiring about our pups, we would like you to share a bit of you including if you understand the needs of the breed and what their home environment will be like.
Our Sire, Jax is a registered purebred with the CBCA . Piper, Lucy & Lily are not registered as Riley was a working border collie and there was no need to register them, we also know her line going back 4 generations. We will provide a full DNA panel on our females to ensure no cross breeding has occurred as well as lineage/heritage information.
Ivy, Abby and our newest girl are ABCA registered. We are thrilled to be able to carry on this line from California. They are exceptional dogs with solid pedigrees and lines and we are thrilled to add them to our program.Read More

Yes. We will only accept deposits that we feel we will be able to fill on the upcoming litter. If there are several people looking for the same dog ( e.g. A female ee Red, we will only take a maximum of 3 deposits on the litter). If you are more flexible and have several choices, if we are able, we will take a deposit. Deposits are accepted when we feel we can accommodate the selection in the upcoming litter.
We can never guarantee a certain gender or colour will be born but we do our best to accommodate and deposits ensure you have your pre-selection prior to those on our regular wait list.
Please note we always retain first pick of any given litter. Currently, we are not planning on holding any puppies back however we do retain that option.
Refunds are not given for ” sorry, bought another pup” situations and are only honored in very rare situations. We spend significant money and time developing our program and planning our litters. Screening and applications take time and if you have held a spot on a litter, it is because you are wanting to become a part of the Willow Creek family, which by the way is incredibly special and truly a family with lifetime support and friendships.Read More
