Welcome to Fox Point Farm Toy Shelties and Poshies Available Puppies and Adults page!
At FPF raising and offering the finest Toy and Mini Shelties of UK type and Poshies is our Passion! We put a tremendous amount of love, time, research and money into improving the quality, health, temperament, size and type of our toy-size Shelties and our Poshies! We are constantly studying the newest advances and discoveries to progress our care and breeding program to be one of the best in the nation! I am here to help other breeders who need support, advice and honest leadership as well. If you have a question about our program, about our dogs or toy shelties or poshies in general, I'm always here to help!
We are excited about the new USDA law requiring all breeders with 4 or more breeding age females, sell online or ship, to be fully inspected and licensed by the USDA in accordance with the Animal Welfare Act. We feel this is an excellent step to shut down the puppymills throughout the Unites States.
We have contacted the USDA and they are making a visit as soon as field agents are available.
We are and were already in full compliance of the AWA standards of care and record keeping.
We are building a brand new kennel to comply to their housing requirements (all our dogs are currently housed in our home). We are also putting in a new tiled room in our home for our nursery (puppies are currently born and raised in my bedroom).
Although the expense will be considerable, we do wish to continue to serve clients from all over the country and the world with safe, affordable shipping options.
We encourage you to ask all breeders you are considering, how they feel about this new law and if they plan to become licensed. Beware of people 'dumping' their dogs to escape this new legislation. This will give responsible breeders more credibility. It will also help you find and trust the best breeders with breed improvement as their goal.

All our dogs are on heartworm and flea prevention, they are all properly
vaccinated, and they have full run of the farm. They are on excellent
quality food recommended by our vet (Purina Pro Plan), and they sleep in
our bed or a crate inside each night.
I appologize for not updating normally. I fell off a ladder and broke my leg 1/24, surgery (plates, 5 screws, bone graft) 1/28, in hospital in severe pain until 1/31, returned home 2/1, 3 months no pressure on leg. Break was terrible and stopped us cold. I am just now feeling well enough to get on the computer. So sorry for the delays. Thank you Wendy James for returning messages and keeping life going!

At Fox Point Farm our great producers and pets stay for a lifetime. We
have the room for all of them to stay, but occasionally we have a
sheltie or poshie that doesn't like life on a busy farm and would
rather have their own family and maybe a couch with no competition. All
our adults are crate trained and either sleep in the bed with us or in a
crate at night. Most have free rein of the house, but we do watch the
boys more carefully (breeding boys may mark in the house where another
has marked before). We keep belly bands on our breeding boys when they
are inside. We work outside, so few of our dogs are used to being inside
all day. They may need a refresher on asking to go out. If I'm sick
they will lie with me on the bed all day, but that's about the biggest
'inside' day they have. They are all super sweet, smart and have
tolerated all kinds of people and all kinds of animals. Every adult we
have sold/placed has really done amazing! I think they love all the
extra attention a small family can give.
No Adults available at this time.
When we have clients ready and waiting on
our Premium Waiting List, we will breed our girls that come into
season. We do our best to fill puppy orders as they come in without ever
raising more puppies than we have clients ready to adopt. These are the
girls we have bred.
Not all moms 'catch' or carry their puppies to term. We have several
'maiden' girls we are testing right now. We have high hopes for them. If
they fail to catch, carry or raise puppies over two heat cycles, they
may become available as pets.
These girls are all super sweet, house-broken/crate trained, great farm
and family companions! We do hope all our girls have big healthy
litters! We update these pregnancies as changes occur.

Toy and Mini Shelties are considered 'undersized' by the AKC, but they are the original Shetland Sheepdog of UK type.
Almost all of our Shelties are registered with the AKC. Being
'undersized' or below the height for the AKC breed standard limits your
participation in AKC Conformation showing only. AKC puppies raised by us
are eligible for all other AKC Programs including AKC Agility and
Herding competitions. Many of our AKC registered Shelties come from
Championship Conformation lines, so even though they are tiny, they are
structurally and conformationally very correct. We strive to raise
perfect Shelties in tiny packages, and most of our Shelties must be seen
to appreciate their size and correctness because in photos they look
exactly like standard size Shelties.
We are obsessed with raising Toy Shelties that are as long-lived and healthy as standard size shelties. We
believe some of our choices actually make our shelties healthier than
standard show breeder's puppies. "Line-breeding" or 'in-breeding' is a
common, accepted and recommended practice amongst many show breeders.
They breed in 'families' to "set" consistent type, coat, head shape
and overall conformation characteristics. I understand from a genetics point of view
that by 'doubling up' on certain genes/dogs/families that a breeder is
more likely to produce puppies with more consistent looking exteriors, I
believe having fewer genes in the gene pool puts the puppies at more
risk for health and personality defects. We believe 'out-crossing'
(breeding unrelated dogs) is the best way to avoid bad recessive genes
that create these health and personality problems that can severely
shorten your dog's life and make things very expensive as well. Please
understand by outcrossing size within a litter can vary. The vast
majority of our puppies are toy-size or minis as adults, but there is an
occasional small standard that pops out too. We do our best to
recognize them and predict their size at birth and at least before they
go home. Please know they may be the healthiest standard sheltie you can
find, with the best temperament and would be fully eligible to show in
AKC Conformation competition.
Some other toy sheltie breeders have a few unethical practices to
watch out for too. Some breed dogs with health defects (heart murmurs,
liver shunts, kidney issues, etc) to produce tiny shelties. These issues
can cause a dog to be smaller than it would be normally, and these
issues can pop up in puppies of any breed who are smaller than expected.
Make sure your breeder has their adult dogs checked before breeding
them, and ask what their policy is if a puppy turns up with an issue.
Ethical responsible breeders will fully investigate the issue and many
times retire one or both of the parents. There is also a popular
practice in some breeders to withhold food from puppies and adults in an
attempt to 'stunt' their growth. This is obviously dangerous and
stupid, most dogs will grow 'late' once they get proper nutrition, but
damage to internal organs can be irreversible and significantly shorten
their lives. Please be aware that buying the 'runt' from a standard
litter (or any litter) can be risky as well. Many true runts have
internal problems who make them so tiny. Don't fall for these common
'tricks', they could cost you a broken heart and loads of money.
Read The Truth About Runts.
We are so confident in our program that we offer the BEST GUARANTEE IN THE BUSINESS! Your puppy/adult is guaranteed against any health, personality, size, training problem for the first three years. Return your puppy/adult for ANY REASON for a FULL REFUND
(and of course you may choose to get another puppy instead). If your
puppy has a documented health issue that comes up, but you want to keep
it and care for it, you may receive a 50% refund of your purchase price
(and we ask papers be returned so you cannot breed). We will take back
(we will even pay shipping if needed) any puppy or adult we have sold
(or placed), at any time, for any reason. We will not judge you if your
life changes and you need to give up your dog. We are here to support
you and your dog, do not hesitate to request our help, we do not wish to
ever see our dogs in need of a rescue group. We live on a farm and have
plenty of room to keep any of our dogs (or other shelties) in need of a
All that being said, we are well aware and concerned about pet overpopulation in this country.
We only breed girls when we have qualified, suitable families desiring
puppies. We believe shelters and rescues are doing their best to help
needy dogs find excellent homes. We encourage you to consider a rescue
when looking for your next family member. But we also see the need for
responsible, ethical breeders with a positive vision for the future of
their breed to produce excellent puppies for your consideration too. If
nobody is looking to the future, only accidental and for-the-money
litters with a myriad of problems will be available to buy/adopt and our
beautiful breed will be lost. There is a need for responsible breeders
to still produce puppies for their clients who desire excellence.
Lastly, please understand raising Toy Shelties is a challenging task.
Sometimes getting tiny girls to cycle, stand to be bred, get pregnant
and carry puppies full term is the most challenging part. They don't all
make great moms, few do in fact. It generally takes 2-3 years of trying
before we can see if one of our girls is going to make a good mom.
Before birth, moms need extra monitoring in case delivery is tough;
and occasionally super tiny moms need a c-section. Complications in
delivery, taking too long to deliver and breathe, can cost a tiny puppy
its life fast. Puppies take enormous amounts of time once they are born
to make sure they are growing and cared for properly. Many puppies need
tube-feeding to get started; they are so tiny they fatigue before they
can drink enough milk on their own to survive and grow. Puppies need
perfect temps (about 85 degrees) and perfect humidity. They need
constant supervision the first few days to keep mom from accidentally
suffocating one (or more) by lying on them (their voices are soft; their
screams are unheard). Suffice it to say, breeding toy shelties is a
labor of love with many heartbreaks and tremendous cost, but when the
puppies are here, healthy, adorable and meeting their new families, all
the effort is worth it!
Our shelties and poshies may not be our whole life (we are professional horsemen), but they certainly make our lives whole and full of joy and passion!
See Sheltie History for more information about how our Toy Shelties are the original, foundation Sheltie of UK Type.
Pick-up and Shipping
We are happy for families to come here and meet us and all our family before or after their decision to purchase a puppy from us.
We love to share our shelties and poshies with you! There are restrictions, like not seeing/holding the really young babies, that are for the safety and emotional well-being of our moms. But short of that, we love visitors!
The AKC suggests all puppies wait until at least 8 weeks of age to go to their new homes.
We offer both Ground Shipping and Air Shipping.
We believe both are good. Ground is occasionally less expensive if you live on the east coast. Both ways have been safe and deliver healthy, happy puppies to their new families.
We use Pro Dog Transport for our Ground Shipping.
Contact them directly to get prices and possible dates.
Most Air Shipping is $350/puppy.
Occasionally it might be as little as $300, if you desire Delta Dash, short notice, it could be as high as $450. As long as arrangements are made 48 hrs in advance, the price can stay down. Shipping price includes a Health Certificate from the vet, a crate, the flight and a tiny bit for gas to the airport. We ship using Delta most often. Shipping can be done by air as long as temps are between 35-85 degrees. We have shipped many many puppies safely and successfully
with no horror stories to date.
What is the best way to get a puppy?
Because our puppies are so challenging to raise and so few are available each year, we have created 2 Waiting Lists
to make sure our serious clients get an option at the puppy of their dreams. We used to offer only our free Regular Waiting List, but when puppies became available whole litters would sell out in a matter of a few hours. We had clients who had been potentionally
waiting months, who would miss the email and miss the puppies. We still offer our free Regular Waiting List but if you are serious about getting a puppy from us, I highly recommend joining the Premium Waiting List.
The Premium Waiting List is where nearly all our puppies are sold.
For a $250 TOTALLY REFUNDABLE for ANY REASON deposit, you get a specific number in line.
When puppies become available, we offer them to each member of the Premium List in order before offering to our Regular Waiting List or the public. Clients get 5 days to choose a puppy before it becomes available to the next client. Once a puppy has been made available to you, you may choose it at any time (you do not have to pick in 5 days), but be aware it may be available to others too. We keep your preferences on sex, color, size and markings so we are not pestering you with puppies that do not fit your 'wish list'. Make your list as general or detailed as you desire so we can offer you the puppies you want to see.
Once you have chosen a perfect puppy, a deposit is needed to secure it as yours until it is time for it to go home.
Most deposits are $500 and if you have already joined the Premium List and paid $250, you will only owe $250 more. If you are not on the Premium List, you will need to send the full $500. If a puppy has gone through the Prem List clients and it made available to the Regular Waiting List and the public, first deposit received on a puppy will secure that puppy. No puppies will be held without a deposit.
How do I pay my deposit and for my puppy?
We have several ways to pay your deposit and your balance. We accept Paypal (at no extra charge) to make paying fast, simple and safe. You may also pay by personal or certified check or with a money order. Of course we accept cash too! Please have your puppy paid for in full before you intend to either pick-up or ship. If paying with a check, please allow time for your check to arrive and clear our bank. If paying the balance when you arrive, we request cash. No checks will be accepted when picking-up.
