Shepherd's Way

Fall 2020 Litter from Lark and Shelby


Peaslee's Skylark of Mondurle (Lark) is a sweet, happy-go-lucky girl whose easy going demeanor makes her a joy to train.  She enjoys learning new tricks and is a wonderful travel companion.  She loves being with her family but is a true English Shadow and always has Toni in her sight.  Lark earned her CGC at 5 months old and also earned her Advanced CGC.  She excels at dog sports (agility, nose work, dock diving, and has done a little herding and passed her herding instinct test) but is also happy to just go for a hike or sleep on the couch.  There seems to be nothing she can't do!  She is very athletic and has a moderate build.

Snowy River's Noble Oak (Shelby) is a sweet boy - easy going, patient and gentle. He's an ES shadow, always by Connie's side or at her feet, watching over her when she is in with the livestock. Very loyal to his person. He's very biddable, will do or try anything Connie asks him to do. He's earned his CGC and PKD-T. Shelby has worked sheep, cattle and ducks. He is easy going with ducks, will go to the head to turn her cows and wants to control the sheep. Shelby is athletic, confident and a great hunter. He's happy to go hiking, assist with dogs who have behavior problems, swim in the river or snuggle up on the couch.

Coefficient of inbreeding (COI) for this cross is 1.8%. Puppies should be due towards the end of Nov.  I expect these puppies to be thoughtful, athletic and balanced, family-oriented puppies with some good working background.  They should fit in family, sport and working homes.
