One Good Farmdog

…That's what owners of our old fashioned farm collie puppies say. We love the way our farm dogs think, work and nurture!

2013 Devon – SOLD

“Shows English Shepherd farm dog traits. Herder traits, great with ducks.  As a young pup, Devon was good at following direction. He is so smart, he has been one of our top ‘picks of the litter’.

But now he is growing aware and eager to control his environment ‘for their own good’, his strong energy needs training at his permanent farm/home, so he learns that he is not always the one with the best ideas.   Tries to be the alpha, which is a good farm manager dog trait, and really wants to give direction, only needs someone to show him what needs doing.

Wants a boss, if that boss can bond to him and Devon can love him.  He is alert and brave around medium animals like sheep, and holds his ground when meeting cows.

Maybe Devon is a one-man kind of dog, but will love his family like crazy,  because his boss does. You are lucky to get this dog, I love him! says Brina.

This litter will be sold to
homes we select.

  • They each passed a full veterinarian fitness exam, are wormed, have been on Frontline and have their first set of puppy shots. **(Keep us posted on future Vet visit reports!)

  • They have the traits to eventually be registered with the American Working Farm Collie Association (AWFC) if so desired when the time comes.

  • THERE ARE NO “Pet quality only” dogs in this litter, but every one of them could make a great companion.

  • All pups have the potential (depending upon environment) to become fantastic family and farm companions, each with differing strengths in guardian, nurturing, guarding, herding or hunting characteristic

  • Despite being on our waiting/interested list, we may not have the dog for you, in this litter. If so, we can tell you who might.

  • We owe it to the pups to do our best to put them in the RIGHT homes, not the FIRST homes. Please be as honest and detailed as you can in describing your circumstances and need for a dog.

About Heather Hatch

Six second version: Writer. Artist. Picture books. Family Reading Advocate. Seriously. Six minute version: Farmer's daughter with a knack for research and a giant appetite for pencils, books read/write/illustrate, and a passion for growing things...like marriage as the only wife of a good man who shares her Mormon faith and heritage, and whom, for all 12 days of Christmas, has given her 1 homestead in the beautiful Ozark hills, one good farmdog, 6 creative home schooled children, a scythe, a bushwacking walking mower, and a milk cow, leash-trained sausage, 8 fresh laid duck eggs, an orchard to prune, a vegetable market garden to weed, and he still hopes that after watching movies with him, she blog, write and paint about it all. In one sentence. That says a lot about me. And it's true.
