My dogs are my family and they are pets and best friends first, competiion dogs second, and maybe just maybe once in a while one will have a litter. My intention in breeding has never been to make money, but to pass on great traits and let other have just a little piece of what means so much to me! I strive to produce pups with excellent Temperaments, Health, Structure and Soundness, while maintaining the natural herding ability the Border Collie is known for. Though Agility is our main interest, our puppies excel in herding, agility, Frisbee, dock diving, Fly-ball, obedience, conformation, and most importantly as loving lifelong companions.
On a small family farm in the southwest corner of Minnesota live a pair of pure bred border collies (Nikki and Jethro). They are beautiful black and white adults who are loving to their humans and produce beautiful puppies. Their pups can be registered with APRI, will be up to date and their vaccines and wormer, and you will usually get weekly photos of your pup so you can ""grow up"" with them. A $150 non-refundable deposit will hold the pup for you - ""first come, first served"". We are willing to ship the pup to you or meet you part way if you cover the costs (above the price of the pup). Call or email Gladys with any questions you might have or for more information.
My obsession with border collies began when I was a young teen and our neighbor had the most beautiful dog. I often got to dog sit with her when her family was away. I finally got to have my own BC when my kids were very small. I began breeding BC's more than 20 years ago, and conciser my kids raise by border collies! I continue to love and raise these wonderful dogs and have learned so much over the years. My dogs are health tested and come with a health guarantee. They are raised indoors with lots of attention, and now with the help of 3 small grandchildren. The next generation of kids raised by BC's
