Breeding Goals

 

              As a breeder, I want to make thoughtful contributions to the English Shepherd breed by:                                         - producing puppies which:      

                                      - have stable, confident temperaments.                                                                                                               - are sound in health and structure.                                                                                                                     - are intelligent.                                                                                                                                                   - demonstrate reliable working traits.

                       - seeking out crosses which are not replicated to a large degree in the English                                                        Shepherd gene pool and which represent genetic diversity.

                       - thoroughly evaluating each puppy and potential home in order to make the best match

                              possible. 

                       - providing continuing support to present/future members of the English Shepherd                                                community, particularly those who end up with a Stillwater puppy.
