Welcome to Pinewood Acres. We are a small Show/Breeding kennel located in Central Maine. We have been actively involved with showing dogs for over 27 years. I started out in Obedience, with Shetland Sheepdogs(Shelties), but then we got hooked on showing in Conformation, which is still our primary interest today. Although we have Shown and Bred all colors in the past, moving forward, I will be breeding for Sables only.
We got our first Chihuahua in 2002 and we immediately fell in love with these little dogs! After a slow start and growing out several, we acquired "Speedy" from Sunset Kennel. He, together with "Paris", would become the foundation for our line. We Show and Breed mostly Long Coats and very rarely, Smooth Coats, in a variety of colors, including merles.
As soon as my daughter Paige could walk she was following me to handling classes, matches and shows. She started showing in the Breed ring and Juniors in Canada when she was 7. Over the years she has put several points on our dogs, other peoples dogs and finished her own Collies, including Summer, who was in the Top Ten rankings for several weeks. She did very well in Juniors in the United States and Canada, gathering several Best Junior awards and placing in the top 20 Juniors for Collies in 2004. We can't thank Roxann and Dale Heit of Timeless Collies in Kansas enough for entrusting us with their beautiful dogs and for all of their support over the years. Words can not express how proud I am of Paige and all she has accomplished. Please visit her pages below for some of the pictures from her past. You will have to use your browsers back button as these pages are from our old site......
We breed for healthy puppies, from AKC only, Sires and Dams that are Champions, Champion Sired or from heavy Champion backgrounds, with no known health issues and sound temperaments, with the hopes of our next Show Prospect to take into the ring. Of course, not all puppies are Show puppies so we occasionally have quality puppies available for loving Pet or Performance homes and occasionally we do offer Show Prospects to approved Show Breeders as well.
