Breeder of Miniature American Shepherds to a meticulously high standard.

The North Sea International Dog Show


This potentially was our last show for the year due to a litter of puppies due in August so we made the quick trip across the channel to the North Sea Dog International Show. As Nova was in pup we only took Dunnellons Boomerang ‘Boomer’ and Ironpaws Iron Lady ‘Apollo’ along with Boomers daughter from a previous litter Greggles Cherokee Warrior of Iron.

NB The wins at this show gained us qualification for CRUFTS 2018, however due to the pending recognition of the Miniature American Shepherd with the Kennel Club in the UK we are currently unsure if we will be able to attend or not. We will update our news section when we have further information.


Apollo continues to impress me in the show ring, though she is going through the 12 month silly’s she still went out into the ring and performed well. The Judge liked her and said she was full of life, had a lovely expression and had good angulation with a strong topline. He also liked her head, ears and coat but said she needs time to mature and gain a little more substance.

Boomer really is a star every time i take him in the ring he becomes a different animal, he loves to perform and loves the show ring. The judge was smitten with him! He said he was great type, very nice overall and liked his head very much. He had a good front and rear and a great length in body. His coat was very nice and he loved Boomer Temperament very much, in fact while he was writing up Boomers score card, Boomer was sat on his knee! Not only did Boomer take best of breed but he then went on to get his first Group 11 win and Ironpaws 2nd Group 11 win.

Boomers daughter Greggels Cherokee Warrior of Iron also did very well with the following results her owner was delighted as this was Cherrys first CACS and points at showing, she also qualified for CRUFTS 2018.
