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 a litter or two a year)
are born in our bedroom and remain there,
separated from the rest of the kennel until about
three weeks of age to ensure both the safety of
the puppies and privacy for their dam. They are
then moved to 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
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.
