About Our Dogs
Meet Our Dogs:
English Shepherds are a heritage breed, whose ancestors were some of the first dogs brought to America by the English settlers. Males tend to get around 60 to 65 lbs. Females tend to get around 40 to 50 lbs. They are a great working breed and/or family pet. One great feature about them is their "off switch". They can work all day and then come in and relax with your family. They are great with kids and other pets.
We believe that English Shepherds, like other "collie" breeds make a great working dog. However, they will also be completely happy not living on a farm herding sheep. All English Shepherds may have some "herding" instinct, which can be simply satisfied by playing fetch or similar activity. Letting them patrol your/their yard and taking them for walks absolutely suffices to satisfy their energy needs. In our honest opinion, what makes the English Shepherd the best of the "collie" breeds is their off switch. They are able to come inside at the end of the day and relax with their family.
For our breeding program, we wanted each puppy to have very diverse genetics. So, we traveled over 2,000 miles from New York to Montana to get our Stud, "Rolly". Our puppies have an incredibly rare and unique mix of East Coast and West Coast genetics. We believe this gives them their amazingly fluffy, strong, teddybear-like appearances that we have come to love and have not seen anywhere else. But, appearances are definitely not everything. Our puppies live with us, as family until they go onto their new families. By doing this, we believe they are the most socialized puppies you will ever meet.

“Panda” (Not an English Shepherd)
Color: Black and White
Born in New York, Panda is a loving and loyal livestock guardian dog. She protects our herd of goats, deters and alerts us to any threats around the farm. She receives very few angry phone calls from neighbors🤣. She lives outside 24/7, is a great LGD and has created an unbreakable bond with our family and farm. Panda is a mix of Great Pyrenees, Maremma, and Anatolian Shepherd. We haven't had any litters from her yet. But, we are intrigued about what a mix between her and Rolly would look like...
