Breeder of Miniature American Shepherds to a meticulously high standard.

Our Dogs

Boomer

Dunnellon’s Boomerang

We decided that we wanted to get another dog as we really felt that Holly was lonely. I wanted another dog to do agility with and my husband wanted another dog to go running with but not a large dog like Holly. At first i came across the standard Australian Shepherd and really wanted one but knew we did not have the room. I came across the Mini Aussie (as they were then) and fell in love with Cajun Jessica Stewards stud at Dunnellons in Shropshire. After several e-mails and phone calls i was delighted to find out i had been accepted onto the waiting list. I can still remember the day we picked him, we had the choice of two. I picked him because he seemed the sweetest one with a glint in his eye, where as my husband picked the same pup but because his feet were good! I don’t know which one of us were right but Boomer has grown in to a handsome, intelligent and happy boy.

Maverick was from Boomer and Novas last litter in 2017, though Maverick is very happy with his new owners we have retained breeding rights on this boy to keep our options open. He is very cheeky and has already won a number classes in conformation showing under my handling and is coming on really well in his foundation agility training and obedience training with his owners. We are very excited to see how this boy comes on.

Gottabes Supernova

Well its true what they say ‘Minis are like Pringles, once you pop you cant stop’ the search was on for another mini, Boomer was almost 2 and doing well at agility training and had just started competing. I did not want another one to do agility or really for breeding. I wanted to move into showing. Again my mentor Jessica Steward came to my aid and said that her friend at Gottabes in Reno USA was planning a litter. Again after lots of emails and a very long Skype conversation i was delighted to find out that i had been accepted onto the waiting list. I had to pick Nova at 2 days old as i wanted a puppy with its tail. I picked Nova for a number of reasons but the one that always springs to mind is the colour pattern on her head that looks like two HD eyebrows! When i was asked if i wanted full rights the journey of Ironpaws began.

Ironpaws Iron Lady

Apollo has been a character since she was born, this little girl is going to be a challenge. She knows her own mind and has a sparkle that I could not ignore. Apollo started showing in January 2017 at 5 months old and already has a number of wins under her belt, we cant wait to see how she continues to develop. We will instinct test her for sheep herding and hope to have her French Kennel Club temperament test done. I am expecting great things from this lovely girl, being our first home produced female she will continue our type into the future.
