We have several young females looking for forever homes where they will be loved. They will leave us with full pedigrees but without kennel club registration papers as we do not want them to be extensively bred from. All have excellent health statistics. One in particular will make a fabulous agility star. Reasonably priced to the right homes.
A note to hopeful puppy owners. Please remember that our puppies are the result of over FOURTY years of study in our chosen breed, we can answer questions regarding your Rough collie throughout its lifetime. We have reared large numbers of puppies, watched them grow and develop, and maintained a large number of dogs, in order to be able to speak from both knowledge AND experience. We have devoted a life time to research, given up on holidays, given up on smart clothes in favour of dirty mud covered overalls. We have no flat screen TV, no expensive car, no smart phone and very few evenings dining out. Our money goes into feeding dogs, maintaining kennels, the purchase of grooming products and the high cost of importing healthy dogs, so that we can keep a sustainable gene pool active, all for the benefit of the breed we love. If we all bred one litter per year and used the same male, the breed would NOT survive into the future. Some of us have devoted our life, not to win a few ribbons in the show ring so we can boast (nice as that is) but to gain the knowledge and experience needed to breed healthy dogs, dogs that fit the breed standard rather than fit a modern fashionable interpretation of it, dogs that will hopefully enjoy a long active life. We hope that those who wish to enjoy the fruits of our labour, will appreciate our hard work and the huge expences involved in this life long project. We hope you will appreciate that health testing is expensive. Why is it that people are happy to pay for new laptops, fancy phones, and multiple holidays... and yet hope to pay nothing for a healthy active intelligent life force that has entered the world through love and devotion, and will bring them joy for many years!
WE HAVE BABIES BORN on the 25th September....!!!!!!!!!!!!!
. Both parents are fully dna tested and we can therefore guarantee that EVERY puppy from this litter will be normal eyed (unaffected by collie eye anomaly) they will all be free from the mdr1 deletion gene (+/+) and they will not develop degenerative myelopathy (DM)
All puppies will be sable in varying shades.
Sire is our golden sable boy WICANI RUMOURS . This lad is Crufts qualified and is the sire of many winning show puppies including CC and CAC winners.
Dam is our glamorous tricolour WICANI EMPRESS EUGENIE who is a Championship show first prize winner.
This litter will grow to be of good size and will be traditional type.
4 boys and 4 girls, two are carrying a lot of white, the rest have regular markings.
3 days old in the photo. The photo is taken with the puppies under an INFRA RED HEAT LAMP which does considerably redden the colour. Photos will be added as the babies mature.
Here is 'daddy' Wicani Rumours...lovingly known to his friends as 'Scandal' he is a playful male with a naturally happy temperament. In this photo he is playing with his favourite toy, a green googly eyed octopus!
Below is a photo taken at Leeds championship show, where 'Scandal' qualified for entry into Crufts 2018.
Here is mama, her name is WICANI EMPRESS EUGENIE and she loves everyone!
These babies are in high demand, lets hope that 'Eugenie' has enough babies to please her every fan.
Gemheid collies are pleased to announce a litter due at the end of October from our lovely sable female Gemheid Rebecca and sired by Wicani By Sword and Sorcery
Puppies are expected to be sable and tricolour.
These puppies will all be born free of Collie Eye Anomaly and Degenerative Myelopathy and they will also be free of the mdr1 deletion gene.
Both parents are fully DNA tested.

Puppies will be of good size and traditional type.
pregnancy is confirmed for our super sable girl Wicani Sugar Bon Bons (Bonnie), a daughter of Wicani Rumours out of Wicani Silken Feather. Puppies are due around 20th October. The sire of this litter is Wicani By Sword and Sorcery 'Arthur' and we expect to have both sable and tricolour puppies.
These babies will ALL be CEA NON CARRIER by parentage. They will also be MDR1 +/+ and DM free. We have worked for 7 years, importing many collies from around the world to be able to reach this point, whereby we can produce an entire litter of puppies that are genetically non carriers of all three of these common inherited defects. They are not only unaffected, but they cannot even produce cea or dm if mated to affected partners. This litter are VERY special. We would prefer them to go to serious homes, although one or two may be available to loving pet homes too. Only 5% of Rough collies WORLDWIDE have these health statistics, this is an incredibly rare opportunity. This is the culmination of 7 years of ridicule from some of our fellow breeders who have preferred ribbons over hard work to improve health, 7 years of expensive imports, 7 years during which time we have been making use of over 40 years of experience in the breed, to combine English and American dogs. We have made many sacrifices to bring you puppies of this outstanding quality. All the DNA testing, all the love we have poured out by putting health as our main priority, weathering the storms when they appeared and we can now celebrate the sunshine. We are THRILLED.
Strong of limb, sound of mind, active and intelligent and brimming with vitality..we want it ALL.
