The co-owned girls - Raine, Oreo, Ebbie and Tassie!
Sometimes when we breed a litter, it just isn't practical to keep a puppy back ourselves - most likely because we have enough dogs and really would be stretching ourselves to have a new puppy. Quality of life for the pups is our main concern, and of course maintaining quality of life for our older dogs too! Everyone needs individual time every day, for grooming/playing and for training - even the oldies need time every day doing little tricks etc, just to keep them feeling they are doing an important job!
So when this happens, we will sometimes co-own a pup, so this pup gets the best life possible, he/she will live close by so they can visit often, and will feel just as comfortable here as in their own home. We can get to know them very well too, so we can make informed decisions later on with regards to breeding (or not). Not all of our co-owned dogs are bred from, only the very best will be used in our future plans, the others are neutered but still continue to visit and share our lives just the same :-)
We are very grateful to our co-owners for giving the dogs such a super lifestyle!
Raine lives with Becky. She is from our stunning Tweed/Mercury litter and is everything we were hoping for from this combination! She is very intense, currently just a year old, she really wants to work. She has a lot of eye, and a very strong character! She is very quick to learn and I am sure will be super keen when she begins her agility groundwork. We are very excited to watch her grow :-)

Oreo lives with Lisa, she is from Tassie/Bruce, and litter sister to Faith. She is a good size, I think might just measure large for agility.
