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

Established in 1990

Welcome to Pinewood Acres. We are a 28+ year active Show Breeder of quality AKC Shetland Sheepdogs and Chihuahuas. We started out in Obedience with Shetland Sheepdogs but then we got hooked on Showing in Conformation Events, which is still our primary interest today.

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.  We would like to thank Dale & Roxann Heit of Timeless Collies in Kansas for all of their help/friendship and for entrusting us with their gorgeous Collies over the years.  Please visit Paiges link below.  You will need to use your browsers back button as these pages are from our old site.

We Breed primarily for ourselves, with the hopes of breeding our next Champion in the Conformation ring.  We only breed from stable/sane/happy, AKC Champion, Champion Sired or from heavy Champion backgrounds Sires and Dams who have no known health issues themselves, or behind them. We Health test our Chihuahuas for Patellas/Cardiac and Eyes, our Shelties for Hip and Eyes and we offer a Lifetime Guarantee on Pet Puppies. Of course, not all puppies are show puppies, so at times we will have quality puppies or young adults available for loving Pet/Performance homes. Occasionally we may also have retired adults, available to mature forever homes. These are NOT "rescue" dogs. I will only place one of my retired adults if a home comes along that is a good match for them.  Any animal that was bred or owned by us has a loving home here for the rest of it's life if needed.
