Our December pups are nearly all placed, after a run of girls we have a male still available. An expected January litter will see our run of pups done for a while!
Saphyr Wheatens have consistent show success; 5 Best in Specialty Shows, 4 Runner Ups plus Challenges & Best of Breed under Irish, specialist and international judges; that’s the feedback we look for as breeders.
However we understand that most owners are probably more interested in health, best breeding practice, temperament and training. We are very proud of Moira's work as a Story Dog, helping kids with reading in schools.
Health is important so we don't breed carriers of the PLN gene with its risk of a predisposition to kidney issues and parents are also hip & elbow scored, kidney function and eye tested. Pups will have eye tests and kidney ultrasounds as well 1st round vaccinations and the mandatory microchips, plus lots of puppy management information.
In retirement Margaret has obtained a Diploma in Canine Behavior Science & Technology to consolidate a life long interest in training and provide support for Saphyr owners, while Norman is happier to take a low key approach after 18 years in dog food research & development. Dogs have always been a big part of our life.
Initial enquiries via the website are easiest.
A letter has been obtained from our vet exempting microchipping before 6 weeks of age.
