Meg and Ezra produced a litter of eight healthy puppies on October 26th 2014 - all females!
We're looking to sell four of these lovely girls to active agility, farming or sheep working homes.
The pups have been microchipped and are regularly wormed and Frontlined, but not yet vaccinated.
Even at this early age, all the pups are interested in sheep and display great confidence.
They will make excellent working dogs and should be easy to train provided they're not allowed to get into a situation where the sheep challenge and frighten them while they're still small (but that won't be the puppy's fault!)
Both parents of these pups can be seen working sheep
Ezra combines some of the best dogs we've owned, which is why we're keeping at least three to train on for ourselves.
His mother is Mel (buried by her grandchildren in the top photo), his father is Eli, and he's a litter brother of Carew.
Ezra's sired only one other litter (with Kay in 2013, producing 8 males!) but those offspring have been very impressive indeed. Some, including the one we still have, Remus, are working as sheepdogs, and in agility they've made meteoric progress with some very experienced handlers.
Ezra is (we think) a wonderful dog: well mannered, biddable, athletic and powerful, he's an ideal combination.
The mother, Meg is a great character. She was bred in Ireland, from trialling lines, and we've owned her since she was a year old.
Meg's what we think of as a high-drive dog, but she's affectionate (sometimes too affectionate - she loves to climb into your lap for a cuddle), a good worker and hugely athletic.
Meg's one of our top ball and disc retrievers, but play never interferes with her work.
The pups are well socialised, confident, inquisitive and very active.
They eagerly take the rough and tumble of running out with the adult dogs, and spend extra time with the younger dogs (who love to help out with the "training").

We're expecting the puppies will grow into confident, capable dogs combining Ezra's commitment and strength of character, with Meg's personality and drive.
All the puppies are black and white, well marked and rough coated, priced at £600.
