What we create today are our dreams for tomorrow....

Please note:  For some reason my web host has been deleting the bottom and

top portions of some of my pages(mostly the FAQ page) and replacing some sentences with codes, different type sets, etc. While this is becoming increasingly frustrating for me and people trying to view my site, it would

be a major undertaking for me to move this site to another host, so I am 

giving them time to try to fix the problem.  If you happen upon a page that doesnt look right, this may be what has happened.  Feel free to email me 

with any questions.


Welcome to Pinewood Acres.  I am a 30+ year Show/Hobby Breeder of quality AKC Shetland Sheepdogs and Chihuahuas.  I am located in central Maine.  I am an AKC Breeder of Merit and an AKC Bred With H.E.A.R.T. Member.  I started out in Obedience with Shetland Sheepdogs but then I got hooked on Showing 

in Conformation Events, which is still my primary interest today.  Due to my medical issues, I do not have any Sheltie litters planned at this time but if you are interested in a quality Sheltie puppy, feel free to email me and I can direct you to other reputable Breeders in the area.  I Show/Breed Long Coat and Smooth Coat Chihuahuas in a variety of colors, including merle.


As soon as she could walk, my daughter Paige started following me to shows and immediately took an interest in showing the dogs.  Words can not express how proud I am of her and her accomplishments.  She not only showed/pointed several of our dogs, and other peoples dogs, but she also finished her own Collies and made the Top 20 Junior Handlers for 2004.  Please visit Paiges link below(click on her picture).  You will need to use your browsers back button as these pages are from our old site.







I breed primarily for myself, with the hopes of breeding my next Champion in the Conformation ring.  I only breed from stable/sane/happy, AKC GCH, Champion, Champion Sired, or from heavy Champion background Sires and Dams, who are health tested/have no known health issues themselves, or behind them.  Of course, not all puppies are Show puppies, so occasionally I offer quality puppies to loving companion homes only. All of my Pet puppies come with a Health Guarantee and a lifetime of Breeder support.


I hope that you will stay awhile and enjoy browsing thru my pages. My site can be navigated by using the side bar, the foot bar, by clicking on any under lined or hi-lighted words or by using your browsers back button on some of my older pages, or pages that go back to multiple areas.  You can find a wealth of information on my  Important Info  page and I also have a  FAQ  page where you will find that most of your questions can be answered.  Please feel free to  email me  if you have any other questions.
