Min X Tex 2020

About this litter...

Min will be bred to Tex on her next heat cycle, due in early 2020, and we cannot wait to raise these sure to be amazing puppies! We are expecting high drive puppies that will excel in herding, agility, disc, dock, flyball , and obedience. Puppies will be rough coated and black and white or tricolor. We are so excited for this pairing and are thrilled to be able to use Min in our program!

 

This litter list is currently full, but there is always a possibility of extra availability if Min surprises us with a larger litter than planned.

Min is owned by Cyndy Douan of Rafter W Border Collies, she has been leased to us for a litter to Tex and we are so excited to see how these two produce together. Min has been with us a while now and we have really enjoyed getting to know her! Min came into our pack like she always belonged there and has been wonderful in our pack and with our toddler. We have enjoyed getting to play with her and Min is already well trained on stock with beautiful style and feel. She shows great natural ability and talent in both Dock and Disc and has produced many LOVELY all around sport dogs that are successful in agility, dock and disc. Min is fast and accurate for disc and displays lovely form and confidence in dock. At home we are enjoying having per as apart of our pack and she has a lovely temperament with a fantastic off switch in the house. We live a bit of a hectic lifestyle and Min has never once worried in any situation we've thrown at her. She has traveled well, enjoyed being part of our pack and playing. Although she has never lived with a toddler, Min is respectful and sweet with our 2 year old. We enjoy Min so much that its like she has always been here! She reminds us so much of her cousin, Shine, by Aled Owens lines.

Here is what Min's owner, Cyndy, has to say about Min" Min has competed in disc and agility. Min is also a great farm chore dog who has excellent natural ability with her sheep. She is definitely one of my best goosedogs! Min's sire (Aled Owen's Roy) and grandsire (Aled Owen's Bob) from Wales each were both International Supreme Champions and World Sheepdog Trial Champions. Her line goes back to Davy, also an International Supreme Champion, and then on way back to the famous Wiston Cap. Min has a charming temperament and is a biddable worker."

Tex is our phenomenally talented, handsome, driven and sweet, adrenaline junky of a boy! I was lucky enough to be blessed with Tex as my first border collie, he has been an amazing team mate and partner and I am so lucky to have him in my life. His drive, determination and athleticism compliment his sweet, funny spunky nature. Tex has always been a character, in puppyhood he was thoughtful and wise, as an adult he remains brilliant and driven, but with a goofy confidence about him. . He matured quickly, eager to try every new activity, sport, exercise and task I threw at him. Tex could easily be described as an "over achiever", he was a prodigy as a puppy, quickly grasping any exercise or task. He began competing in Dock Diving at only 5 months old, achieving jumps over 13 feet! In his first Skyhoundz disc competition at 14 months old, he earned an invite to the Skyhoundz World Championships by winning Bullseye with a score of 52 points. Soon, Tex was unstoppable in many different venues. Tex currently trains and competes in Agility, Dock Diving, Herding, Canine Disc and Rally Obedience. He is a phenomenal demo dog and is used regularly to help teach group obedience and behavioral lessons. Tex is also my main "show stopper", as a professional dog trainer, it is a huge benefit to me to have a dog like Tex who is so reliable, enthusiastic and down right flashy in his obedience, tricks and working ability. He loves to show off and loves to make people smile. Tex is always my last dog (the show stopper!) to use any time we perform a demo, perform at half time shows or entertain anyone. There is no atmosphere that he can't work in, fairs, schools, expos, andbasketball games with bands; Tex has done it all.  He absolutely loves working with his mom and performing, one of his favorite parts of our show is when he gets to play frisbee with kids! He is always eager to play, but incredibly gentle when he returns the disc to them and will even place it right in their hands! The crowds always love Tex's favorite trick, the handstand, and Tex runs faster and jumps higher when he's performing in front of a crowd!
