We only breed one or two litters per year and keep just a small number of dogs 
so that we can give them all the attention and affection that they rightly deserve. 
All our puppies are reared in our home and receive plenty of human contact and love
during this time to ensure that they grow up into well adjusted and sociable beings!  

Puppies are occasionally available to permanent, caring homes (references usually required). 

Our puppies are very precious to us and we therefore sign a contract with any new
puppy owners.  As members of the English Shetland Sheepdog Club, we
have agreed to abide by their code of ethics  http://essc.org.uk/pdf/code.pdf  

 We like to meet all prospective new owners well before a puppy finally leaves us for their new home
and we always look forward to receiving regular progress reports and photos. 

All puppies are eye tested, microchipped and have their 1st vaccinations before they leave us.

 Please e-mail us for further information.

 November 2005

After waiting for what seemed to have been an eternity, we were so excited when
this precious star arrived on 16 November 2005!  The continuation of our sable line,
Ella is a daughter out of our sable and white girl 'Deva'  (Castlerose the Countess)
by our own tricolour boy 'Buster'  (Castlerose Soul Music).

Castlerose Soul Music  ex  Castlerose The Countess

1 April 2006

'Ella' is now 4 and a half months old and is growing into a lovely young lady,
who is exceedingly mischievous but has a lovely nature.  As her father's
KC name is 'Castlerose Soul Music', we named her after the wonderful Ella Fitzgerald
(we sometimes call her Ella Fitz-Edwards!).  Her voice is possibly as powerful ~
but not quite so melodious, especially first thing in the morning!
