Renowned for Temperament Specialising in Reds EST:1994

Over 28 years of loving, nurturing and breeding ANKC Pedigree Registered Border Collies, we have developed a reputation of producing our even temperament and loving loyal dogs.

  " ....I pride myself in keeping the focus on temperament, sound body, health, and mind...."

If you are interested in a puppy please fill out the Puppy Questionnaire, this gives me the tools to start discussing and matching the suitability of a Border Collie and their forever family.  It's not the case of the first enquirer gets a pup. We screen our interested parties to make sure that their life styles, hobbies, house yards & fences are suitable for a Border Collie.  
As the Border Collies are just the most Amazing Breed, BUT because they are so intelligent and can have a high level of drive and IQ they can become very Naughty if they are not receiving enough mental and physical stimulation as well as confident leadership.

Through the end of the year as long as mother nature is on our side we have a litter planned,

 would be going home in late September early October.

If you are interested in our Puppies please fill out the Puppy Questionnaire if you haven't already, 

where you can let me know your Information and preferences.

We take pride in matching the suitability of a Border Collie and their perfect families, the Questionnaire 

will give me the tools to start matching the suitability of a Border collie and their forever family

THE Red Border Collie  

"The eeRed gene" 

  • The Red colour is carried in the pure bred Border Collies and is a recognised ANKC registered colour of a BC
  • The eeRed colour is a Masking gene, which can present in many shades of Reds - Light - Mid - Dark. depending on the phaeomelanin (red/yellow)  in the coat colour
  • The depth of the Red coat develops over the first 18 months as their Adult Coats come in.
  • When you are looking at Red Pup you can get an indication of their Adult coat by looking at the tips if their ears or the darker colour of their coat near their hocks.
  • The Red Coat comes from the eeRed gene masking the colour of the coat to the red, it can come in many depths and variations from a light caramel, wheaten colour through to a range of depths of the red rust colour. (These are just colour examples and not the true registered colour)
  • All variants of the Red coats are registered as Red & White on the ANKC pedigree papers.
  • The Interesting thing about the ee gene is that when it is masking the Colour of the Coat is doesn't mask the pigment colour of the dog.
  • If the pup/dog has black pigment on it's nose and lining of the eyes and mouth, then the pup/dog would have been a Black & White Border Collie. The Colour of the eyes will be a dark brown colour
  • Grey Nose and Eyeliner pigment the pup/dog would have been a Blue & White Border Collie (Grey & White) the colour of the eyes would be a grey colour
  • Chocolate Nose and Eyeliner pigment the pup/dog would have been a Chocolate dog; the colour of the eyes will be a chocolate/amber colour.
  • The bright Blue Eyes that can found in Border Collies have no relation to the masking gene.
  • IMPORTANT INFORMATION - Never Breed a Merle Border Collie to a Red Border Collie, because as mentioned previously the red gene maskes the colour of the dog coat, so if the dog was a Merle but it's coat is masked Red then if the 2 produce the off spring can be effected by the double merle gene which causes blindness and deafness.
