HIGHLEDGE SHELTIES was established in 1994 and registered in April 1995.  After  searching for a quality foundation bitch,  we purchased  ALFENLOCH COMING UP ROSES from ALFENLOCH KENNELS.  "COMING UP ROSES"  was closely linebred on AM/ CAN/CH.ALFENLOCH RYAN O’NEIL ROM ROMC and AM/CAN/JAP/CH.  ALFENLOCH WHIRLWIND ROM ROMC .  Although "COMING UP ROSES" was never shown,  she had tremendous quality,  and she produced two Champion daughters,  who have gone on to help us create our own of family of shelties. We have always kept our kennel small, usually maintaining around five or six  dogs at any given time.  Puppies (normally between one and three litters a year)  are born in our bedroom and remain there, separated from the rest of the kennel until about two weeks of age to ensure both the safety of the puppies and privacy for their dam. They then move to the Living Room and then onto the kitchen where they can be exposed to the hustle and bustle of daily life. Our property is completely fenced, and we have  large and small runs inside the confines of that fencing  to ensure the safety of not only our own shelties but the safety of any visiting bitches who are here for breeding.  Our kennel area is directly connected to our kitchen, which enables us to have access to our shelties at all times.  There is usually a sheltie or two wandering freely in the house, and always a sheltie bed warmer at night. We choose to sell very few show puppies, however the ones we have shared have always done well for their owners,  often taking Best Puppy in Show, Best Puppy in Group or Group Placing  wins, with their beautiful faces, sound bodies and unshakable temperaments. You can see them HERE. I have, over the past few years developed a love for photography.  Most of the photographs (with the exception of the show photos) have been taken by me, and every now and again,  we capture the true beauty of this wonderful breed. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us,  we hope you will visit all of our web pages, and get to know all of our                beloved shelties as well. WE ARE SO GLAD YOU STOPPED BY!
