Litter Information

I appreciate your inquiring about TBC Border Collie puppies, and those born and residing on the Base Farm where I live, and the Main Farm adjacent to me plus 2 other farms. My goal is and always has been to import, work and breed top bred sheepdogs, who have solid structure, temperament and  genetics that can be seen when they work. Although, I’m strictly a sheep farmer, the pups, that I’ve sold in 40 years have done well as companions, obedience dogs, sports, search and rescue, trick training, freestyle dancing and farm and trial work. Equally, important to the structure, temperament, sheepdog genetics, is doing their hips and DNA testing to ensure healthier puppies/dogs. If, you have any questions or need additional information, then please contact me preferably by telephone at 804 357-8059 or email at

The American Kennel Club salutes these individuals for their dedication and success in breeding purpose-bred dogs.


I want to commend The American Kennel Club for acknowledging we Breeders, who strive to breed dogs, who are able to demonstrate their genetic abilities throughAKC sports.

The following statement from AKC is powerful, and it’s followed by a paragraph from my website of my mission statement as a breeder of working border collies:

“The 2019 AKC Breeder of the Year by Sport Award is given to those who have dedicated themselves to improving the health, temperament and performance of dogs in a given sport.”

I believe wholeheartedly in preserving the abilities of the border collie to work and have a desire to please, therefore I strive to breed individuals with proven working STOCKDOG bloodlines, who themselves have the qualities, that make the border collie unique within the realm of the dog world! Such dedication in working and breeding border collies makes it a pleasure to stand behind the individuals, that I breed and sell at TBC Border Collies Farm.

Critical to every breeder are those individuals, who have the dogs from their kennel/farm. I’m blessed to have well bred sheepdogs, and equally blessed to have people, who love and work them in many various sports, as well as on their farms/ranches. I’ve said for years, that it’s 50% genetics and 50% enculturation. Also, I’m thankful to those individuals from the U.K., who’ve exported grand dogs to enable me to share their genetics here in the U.S.. Thank you, Kevin Evans and Simon Cottrell for helping me achieve the goal of solid working sheepdogs.
