I am looking to place two 7 month old Border Collie puppies where they will be able to realize their potential as exceptional companions and astute working dogs.
The puppies’ mother is six years old so we decided to have one litter of puppies from her. She herself was from excellent working farm stock and she has an amazing disposition.
She does a brilliant job working with me and my flock of 200 sheep. Her parents were both very able working dogs on a 5,000 ewe mixed farm. She is an astute and intuitive sheep dog, dependable and obedient. She also has the most wonderful temperament- kind, affectionate and extremely gentle, qualities which she has passed on to her puppies. She is a treasured member of our family and enjoys the privileges of living as a family member and is indulged as a family pet.
Tom is ISDS registered, a successful trials dog and an excellent working farm dog belonging to Farmer’s Weekly correspondent and Lincolnshire farmer James Read. Tom is a littermate of the 2015 Welsh National Sheepdog Trials Champion, Aled Owen’s Llangwyn Cap and this is a chance to buy a puppy from the first litter from 3 yr old Tom.
The puppies’ great grandfather Roy, another of Aled Owen’s outstanding dogs, was Supreme Sheep Dog Champion in 2007 and is now at stud in America.
The puppies were born on 29th January, a few days earlier than expected. They were all strong, beautiful puppies and I am proud to say their mother looked after her litter faultlessly and has reared all ten puppies brilliantly. This is our first litter of puppies and they were bred to make sure we kept their mothers bloodlines in the family. We shall not have another litter- we are delighted with the selection of offspring she has given us.
Such is our bitch’s reputation that two delightful puppies have returned to the farm from where their mother came and are have their mother’s qualities so are being kept as dual role working/family pets.
The puppies were born in the house and have been reared as family pets. By virtue of this they are well adjusted to the noises and routines of a household and are well socialized. They are a joy to teach and quick learners, responsive to requests such as sit, lie down, wait, go back, stay and come etc. and walk well on a lead. They are taken in a vehicle for exercise on our grassland farm and have also been on long journeys across to Wales on three occasions. On their most recent visit last week, they enjoyed the liberty of being trusted off the lead in fields of grazing sheep and proved to be restrained and very obedient.
The puppies are showing the right qualities to make excellent working, obedience and agility dogs and faithful companions. I take their future seriously; ultimately I am responsible for the welfare of these puppies for the rest of their lives. The ones which have been sold have gone to wonderful homes. I am now looking for two more special families wanting a very promising ,affectionate, unspoilt young Border Collie with super working bloodlines and sound basic training ; homes where they will be cherished and given the opportunity to develop their super personalities and use their intelligence and energy this wonderful breed of dog is renowned for.
