While health within the Border Collie is one of our main breed issues, we have been testing all our (breeding) dogs (besides ofcourse on Hip Dysplasia (HD) and annual normal eyetests (CEA, PRA, Cataract, Distiachis etc. inclusive glaucoma)) also for Trapped Neutrophil Syndrome (TNS) and Collie Eye Anomaly (CEA) through DNA in Australia and USA. The puppies we breed will be tested on TNS and CEA through DNA in case one of the parents has been tested as being carrier. We try to check the bloodlines of the dogs for genetic problems and our puppy buyers will get a lifetime guarantee on any heriditary disease. All the healthresults of our dogs can be found on the individual pedigree pages.
Also based on those results, we hope with any planned combination to reach our goal we are aiming for when trying to breed the most perfect Border Collie (at least in our eyes): a healthy dog with great working ability and will to please (for any kind of dogsport/work) with a suberb temperament and character and as bonus nice to look at. We are not selling our puppies just only as being a pet or showdog, we expect the new owners to know that the Border Collie is a true working dog and therefor we want them to get a job or compete in a dogsport like agility, flyball, obedience, tracking or SAR.

Our final litter for the year 2014 is born out of our more than special ee red sweet girl Eager (pictures): Hob Nob Nice of you to Be Eager. We could not find any other better partner this time for her than a big love of our live: Rising Sun Ennis at Canyonland (Ennis) to make our dream come true!
From this combination we expect highly driven, very eager and focused puppies in the colours black/white and brown/white and maybe all with tan markings. This is going to be an unique litter, with both parents being imported from USA out of working lines! These puppies are more than suitable for all kind of dogsports, like agility, flyball, obedience, frisbee, doggydance etc and even herding so will only go to homes who can give them plenty of sport/work to do!
On December 4, 2014 Eager has given birth to 7 amazing and so beautiful puppies: 3 black/white girls, 1 brown/white girl, 1 black/white male and 2 brown/white males!
For more information about the mating, pregnancy, birth and the first 8 weeks of our little ones, you can take a look here.
All the puppies are of course already spoken for by wonderfull new owners!!
