Shetland Sheepdogs

Meet My Show Girls

My current line of Shetland Sheepdogs is all based on the late Sheila Martin’s 'Shellthorn” breeding. Shellthorn Easter Bonnet, Sheila bequeathed to me and I am pleased to be campaigning her in Sheila's memory and I have achieved her Irish Champion status in may 2009.

Below are three of our bitches who have done very well in the show ring and all have qualified for Crufts: Shellthorn Easter Bonnet

Announcing of a new arrival to the Bramblecroft Canine Family:

Shellamoyed Tiger Lily at Bramblecroft
DOB 18.03.2010
Sire: Tri To Die For at Shellamoyed JW SHCH
Dam: Shellthorn Rhapsody in Blue at Shellamoyed


We are please to show off our new bitch puppy Lesha. She has been with us a few weeks now and is a pleasure to own. She was breed by Debbie Fisher out of a bitch which was the litter sister to Champion Shellthorn Summer Blue.

Summer Blue was breed by the late Sheila Martin and I have yet again managed to obtain a bitch with Sheila`s breeding. We hope to start her show career during this summer, but we are in no rush as we are just enjoying having her as part of our family.
