We Are Expecting! 

The highly anticipated combination of Blue and Australian Red is on the way!

This litter has been highly anticipated for almost a year!  Our beautiful Jax who has perhaps the most amazing temperment I have ever seen has successful mated with our Australian Red (ee) Piper.

This pairing is guaranteed to produce amazing temperments and we do anticpate the litter to be predominately Australian Red with the chance for Blue and Lilac.

Jax is CBCA registered, has had a vet clerance and is cleared for CEA.  His hip certification will come in August of 2020 but with both parents being “Excellent/Good” respectively, we expect him to pass this qualification without issue.

Piper has also been CEA cleared and has had a full health panel.  Her hips will be completed upon delivery of this litter and those results will be available to prospective parents (we anticipate no issues as both her parents had a ‘Good” rating).

We have 1 puppy spoken for and will be taking deposits for selection for 4 additional puppies.  Please contact us in your interested in joining our family!

This litter will not be registered however we will provide DNA results to confirm no inter-breeding has occurred and all puppies come with a health certificate and health guarantee.

Puppies due the week of November 1st

Both Lucy & Riley will be mating with Jax this year.  We anticipate that the first mating will be Lucy and Jax and could happen at any time now.

This paring will be spectacular.  Both have excellent temperaments and we anticipate blue border collies in this litter.  It is also possible that we will have our traditional black and white and ee reds.

The first puppy in this litter is already spoken for.  If you would like to hold your selection, please contact us on this page after you’ve reviewed the FAQ!

Riley will be coming into heat in late fall and will be mating with Jax so we can expect puppies in February/March 2020

Riley carries the recessive gene as we saw with her last rainbow litter and we do anticipate dilutes Blues as well as traditional Black and Whites.  Riley is also a very strong carry of the famous diamond, thought to be the best of the best in the Border Collie line.  Several of her off spring carry the diamond and we anticipate this litter will be similar.

Piper will be coming into heat in late 2019 and will be mating with Jax at that time, so we should anticipate puppies from this litter in late 2019.

Much like her sister, Piper’s line is deep with Australian red (ee) colour and also has blue in the line.  We anticipate blue’s, ee’s and potentially lilac’s in this litter.

If you would like to wait on any of the upcoming litters, please read the FAQ and then contact us!

PUPPY FAQ AND WAITLIST

Is a border collie for you?

I’ve been blessed to be a part of several groups on Facebook for the past 5 years, especially our ‘Westcoast-Border Collies page” that is only possible because of the love Carmen has for the breed and her girl Maya.

I have witnessed first hand how this breed CAN be integrated into city life, responsibly and with so much love.  This breed is much more adaptable than many will give them credit for.  They DO require a busy mind but don’t mistake that for having to run 5 miles a day.  You’ll do them and yourself a disservice by thinking that way.

Several of our dogs are working dogs, on a farms and within typical environments.  They have excellent herding skills (and sniff skills as Riley excels in this area) but we also have several in normal, city homes or homes where they will be busy with sports and agility.

Border Collies require mental stimulation and to be honest, ours are much more tired (and quiet!) when we are doing mental work (trick training, mental games – find your toy – Riley knows each and everyone one and when I ask for Piggy, she brings Piggy – not Froggy or Fishy, Piggy!)

They thrive with activity and love love love a good hike, they are also more often than note ball obsessed (to the point where you will most likely have to set rules to ensure they learn an off switch).

Yes, they do have an off switch.  With training and consistency, these dogs can also hang on the couch and chill with you.  Expect kisses (there lickers!) and love but they can and do thrive in normal environments when provided the right mix of activity an mental stimulation.

I also am aware that there are many out there that will not home a puppy to a “first time owner”.  That is such a myth!  We screen our parents very well and we’ve been blessed with several ‘first time owners’ , two ‘first time dog owners’ and you know what?  They researched the breed and we’re more than prepared to welcome their fur babies.

So while the Border Collie is certainly not for everyone, we focus on the individuals and not necessarily their ‘experience.

We do have a ‘must return to us’ policy for all of our dog owner’s and that ensures we will never see one of our dogs in a shelter and also shows how seriously we take their placement.

WORK HARD.  STAY FOCUSED.  PLEASE THE BOSS

LOOK BACK. GIVE THE WOOLIES THE EYE. THAT’LL DO
