Wellsmere Collies has and will always endeavor to produce intelligent, healthy, loving animals who have been given the greatest possible training, socialization, care and love. Each pup is an intrigal part of a planned breeding program designed to sustain and enhance the traits that make the breed so remarkable. I require those who purchase any of my pups to keep me updated on each pup's progress so that I can continually evaluate the strengths of my program. In turn, as a responsible breeder, I will keep your contact information current and commit to being available throughout the life of the animal as a resource and a friend.
