Piper and Draco had a stunning litter on March 13th, 2019 producing 7 chocolate beauties.
Piper was cleared for CEA and has a her hips checked as well as a full physical. She’s a very healthy, very well socialized girl. Draco was 3 years Feb 25th, He comes from a working ranch in North Dakota and has a very high instinct for herding, unreal focus. There is no history of hip or elbow issues in his line and he has been cleared for CEA.
A great pairing with our red beauty. All puppies in this litter have been spoken for.
We are super super excited with the potential this litter has!
Jax is a very rare purebred blue male and the newest addition to our family. At only eight months old, he will be a very busy young man. He is cleared of CEA and will have his hips checked as soon as we are able. His father carries a rare ‘excellent’ hip rating and we have no concern in this area. He has an incredible, very calm disposition and temperament and he will be the perfect match with our very lovable Lucy. As they are both carrying dilute/recessive gene’s this litter can produce a very high quality border collie who also has amazing colour.
We can expect diluted colours including the blue as well as the very elusive Lilac Border Collie.
We never ‘planned’ to become breeder’s, that is the truth. It all started with such a strong love for Riley. She is the most amazing girl you could want. She is incredibly smart, has a great sniff ability and is truly a magnificent dog.
When we set out to mate Riley, it was simple – we wanted her line to stay alive and we wanted to ensure we had one of her offspring. We didn’t know she would produce the amazing temperaments she did, nor did we know she would carry the recessive genes. We did not test to ensure color and we truly didn’t care. We wanted healthy, well tempered dogs and that is exactly what we achieved.
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.
Yes. Once a litter has been confirmed (at the 45 day stage) there will be 3 spots (regardless of the litter size) that can be secured for selection. We will only accept three deposits pre-birth, the remaining will be taken once the litter has arrived and our pre-selection has occurred.Read More
Our Sire, Jax is a registered purebred with the CBCA . Our females are not registered as Riley was a working border collie and there was no need to register them. We will provide a full DNA panel on our females to ensure no cross breeding has occured as well as lineage/heritage information.
The only real need for registration is show, sports and agility do not require registration and it is primarily used to ensure no inbreeding has occurred. With DNA now readily available, producing those results (in our opinion) are more important than papers that cannot prove anything (other than the litter was registered with certain dog ‘numbers’ as the sire/dam.Read More
Our dogs are fully screened prior to mating to ensure we produce healthy puppies. We also have ensured there is no cross breeding as our Females come from British Columbia (sired by a papered Australian Red) and by a Quebec papered boy. Puppies come with a clean bill of health certificate from the Vet and we do guarantee against CEA.Read More
