We are a small show & hobby kennel located in Pataskala,
Ohio, just East of Columbus. Robert was born in Northern
Ireland on a rural farm. As a child he would watch dogs herd
cattle and sheep. Since his childhood, he has been surrounded
with dogs and grew to love the herding breeds. His father
operated the local coal yard and Poyntzpass village scales.
Harry weighed pens of sheep when farmers herded them into
town with their dogs. Betty read all of the Albert Payson
Terhune collie books and the Black Stallion series by Walter
Farley as a child. She spent years wishing for a collie like
Lad and a horse like The Black. As an army brat, with the
possibility of overseas travel, that hope was never realized.
We were married in 1968, and Betty purchased her horse soon
after. The mare was a Morgan/Quarter Horse cross. Within a
few months, Robert purchased an Arabian stallion. We enjoyed
them for many years. About the same time, we purchased a nice
German Shepherd dog. Soon we found another, and we spent several
years raising and showing them. Our first sheltie was purchased
from a breeder in 1973, and we have been in love with the
Shetland Sheepdogs ever since.
our shelties with the hope of producing a show prospect. Since
it is good luck to get even one show prospect in a litter,
we sometimes have beautiful pet puppies for sale. Our puppies
are sold with a written health guarantee, have been checked
by a vet, have been wormed and had their first shot. Our puppies
are handled and socialized from birth. If you are looking
for a puppy with a happy, out-going personality, please check
our Available page.
