Our Toy Shelties are first and foremost our family members and pets.
Toy Shelties are fabulous family, farm and house dogs and everyone always goes wild over how perfect and easy our 'travel size' dogs are. Only because they are so tiny, are we able to have so many and take many of them with us everywhere we go.
Whether you prefer our Mini Shelties or our tiny Toy Shelties, you will adore your new companion as much as we do!
Although Toy Shelties or Shelties of UK type are not officially recognized by the AKC as a separate breed yet (all our dogs are registered as regular AKC Shetland Sheepdogs), we have chosen a this petite version of the sheltie to fit into our busy lifestyle of horses, kids and shows. Our dogs fit easily into your jacket to cuddle or bag to sneak into a hotel.
The toy shelties we raise are, in fact, the original size shelties were when they were developed in the Shetland Isles. We have partnered with several Toy Sheltie breeders with the same ethical standards we have, to work toward getting the Toy Shetland Sheepdog recognized by the AKC. Much time and hard work has and will go into this endeavor, but we feel there is a true desire (maybe even need) for this wonderful breed in this smaller (under 13", most 10-12") package.
We encourage you, if you agree, to join The Toy Sheltie Club of America. We need your support!
We do not buy from or sell to puppy mills. Do not ask! Our puppies are raised to be amazing members of the family. Indoor homes only! We love our dogs, please return puppies at any time no questions asked - they always have a home here.
Tiny shelties are very difficult to raise and when successfully done, still have very small litters. We love our dogs and will do our best to safely produce you a lovely healthy puppy in a timely manner.
Prices range from $1000-2250 depending upon registration, sex, color and size. AKC Toy Shelties are usually $1500-2250; non-AKC are usually $1000-1500.

Please be patient because we are fortunate to have many people interested in tiny shelties. We will fill your request as quickly as we can. Please remember they have small litters and we only have a few girls. But I promise the puppy you get from me will be raised with great care and love! Our vet is involved from the beginning through the day you pick up your puppy.
At Fox Point Farm horses are our business, but our passion is toy-size Shelties!
I am the current President of the Toy Sheltie Club of America. I strive to produce shelties 10" to 12" tall, 8 to 14 lbs as adults. Our shelties are structurally correct in a smaller size, the original UK Sheltie type. We do love a more refined pretty face than the larger show shelties of today. We also have chosen our toy shelties with flash and color. Most of our pups are the popular shaded/tri-factored sable with white collars, legs and blazes, but we do have well marked tris, blue and sable merles and pure-for-sable puppies too. I am currently working with several other excellent Toy Sheltie breeders to get the Toy Sheltie recognized by the AKC. If you are interested in lending your support, let me know! We need more members and we need to develop a Stud Book of Toy Shelties meeting the Toy Sheltie Standard. We would love to include your tiny sheltie in this groundbreaking venture!

We choose our breeding dogs first for health and temperament, then size, beauty and correctness.
We next drag them around to every show, school, etc to see if they are the 'type' of dog we want to reproduce.
If they prove worthy, we breed them and their puppies are raised inside with our other dogs, cats, horses, children and one husband to insure outgoing and brave individuals.
If they are shy, we have them fixed and either keep as our pets, or place in appropriate homes.
Toy-size breeds are bred primarily for companionship and MUST have temperament and personality as a top priority, second only to excellent health.
It is important to us that you completely enjoy your toy sheltie puppy and your toy sheltie puppy enjoys you too!
We started years ago with one awesome female, Bella, who was so perfect and wonderful that we added more! We went back to Bella's breeder and purchased her sister, Julie, and a darling male, Frosty, to be her possible 'husband'. Julie, at that time, wasn't interested in having puppies, so when we got the opportunity to purchase Cassie, a proven breeder, we jumped at it and produce a litter a year from her. Our next addition was the teensy Maggie, another proven female, whose size and charm mesmerizes everyone who meets her!
From these humble beginnings, we have developed a toy-size Sheltie breeding program with quality and ethical standards unmatched in the breed. Our health and temperament guarantee is unheard of - Your dog's health and temperament are guaranteed, period!
