Chloe/Skippy (Poshie) planned breeding, 10/1/12
Lyric/Skippy (AKC Sheltie) planned, 10/2/12
This will be our first litter with 'teacup' sized parents on both sides!!! This may be the first litter of two unrelated parents that makes producing 10"/5-8lbs puppies predictable!!!! It is possible the puppies will be too tiny to survive, but it is also possible it could work and you could have the tiniest, most gorgeous sable pocket sheltie ever offered to the public!
Coco/Hansel or Skippy (AKC Sheltie) planned, 10/22/12
Coco is the first 'teacup' sheltie I raised. She is out of our precious tiny Maggie. Maggie was my first 10", tiny faced girl. She was super sweet, trained and older when we were blessed with her. She had already had a c-section and we were not sure if she would ever produce another litter, but her incredible personality melted my heart and I had to have her either way. We bred her to my precious Frosty for one litter (we spay Maggie after her c-section) of 4 puppies. Three survived, Coco was my choice after all the extra time and effort I gave her to survive. I have never bred her, I expect only 1, maybe 2 litters from her if I do get brave enough to try. Skippy, being so tiny, gives me hope she could have puppies safely. We will try, maybe he will be ready this time. I put him in with Lyric and Coco last cycle, but he didn't catch on to his job. No matter what, Coco is here to stay and hopefully one day will produce a child, it/they will be extraordinary!
My tiny girls are extremely important to me and will never be bred without great thought and care. I also feel I won't breed any girls without suitable families desiring the puppies. I feel we must be part of a positive solution in this country to raise only the nicest, healthiest, most beautiful pets for both pet and performance clients. Raising random litters just bc you can, seems reckless and irresponsible in a day of so many unwanted dogs. We need responsible breeders with the future of our breed, and dogs in the US in general, carefully raising exceptional individuals for your consideration. Hopefully in the future dog overpopulation will no longer exist and there will be 'true professionals' that families desiring amazing pets can go to and trust for their next family member.
If you have an interest in puppies out of one of our girls, please let us know! We will wait to breed them until we feel the time is right, we may never breed them. Our girls will not be available for sale until after they don't do well raising babies, and maybe not then either. We appreciate adult inquiries, but we rarely part with any our adults. Older moms who have produced well will retire and be well cared for here. But young girls who are suitable for great pets and not suitable for moms are occasionally available. Occasionally a boy doesn't make a great breeding stud and he becomes available.
Ask any sheltie (esp toy-size shelties) breeder and they will let you know, shelties are one of the toughest breeds to reproduce, Toy Shelties would make someone with a faint heart (and no regular good job) quit raising puppies. Toy Shelties are expensive bc there are few excellent ones. If you want one, make sure you find a breeder who puts their dogs before awards, prizes and money; toy sheltie breeders must be in it for the dogs and the breed or they will switch breeds for more puppies and profit.
