Effective November 1, 2016, In order for a litter to be listed on the ESC website, the following criteria must be met:

  1. The breeder must be an ESC club member and have a signed ESC Breeder Requirements & Recommendations form on file with the ESC Treasurer.
  2. Both the sire and the dam must be at least 18 months old at the time of whelping.
  3. The breeding shall not be the third or more back-to-back breeding for a bitch (if breedings are less than 10 months apart).
  4. Litters will be listed for breeders. The breeder is defined as the owner of the litter, and is the owner or lessee of the dam of the litter. For the purposes of litter listings, ownership of the dam may be established by registration records or according to the criteria in Section 5.1 of the ESC Registry Rules and Regulations. Any suitable documentation may establish the breeder as the lessee of the dam.

FOR BREEDERS: Breeders wishing to list a litter should fill out and email the ESC Breeder Requirements & Recommendations form to membership@englishshepherd.org or mail to Pam Kaye. Submit a litter listing from the online form here. You must be a member to access this form in the member only section of this website.

The National English Shepherd Rescue website also lists dogs and puppies available for adoption.

Copper Valley English Shepherds

Rhoda Hurst, Virginia, 540 763-4053
Litter born December 31, 2022

Sire: Sir Ladde Yukon of Piney

Date of birth: 12/11/2014
Registration: ESCR, UKC
Hip screen: OFA Good
Other testing: MDR1 – Normal/Normal
CEA – clear, PRA-PRCD – clear, TNS – clear, HUU – clear

Description: Ladde was selected to sire this litter because of his own solid breeding that does not overlap with Carly’s. I wanted to diversify the pups’ genetic heritage but continue breeding for a good natured, calm dog that can also appropriately guard and protect his homestead and people. Ladde has been evaluated for herding ability and his owner was told he had potential. He particularly favors varmint eradication and accompanying his person on her activities around the farm. Ladde stands 24 inches at the shoulder and weighs a lean 60 pounds. His coat is a curly clear sable with Irish markings.

Pedigree: Betts Wilsons Yukon Gold x Johnson’s Gracie-Ann Squire

Dam: Copper Valley’s Glory Be Carly

Date of birth: 7/15/2019
Registration: ESCR
Hip screen: PennHIP  0.35 /0.36
Other testing: MDR1: Normal/Normal
CEA – Clear, PRA/PRCD – Clear

Description: Carly is a resilient, athletic, intelligent girl who plays well with others. I think of her as airborne or “vertically inclined” as she loves to climb and scale the heights, effortlessly clearing gates if she doesn’t figure out how to open them first. She has incredible speed and stamina in running in pursuit of game, but fortunately she’s never killed anything or gone beyond the 60 acres she calls home. Like her Dam, Carly alerts to birds of prey and also enjoys barking at predators in the night. She has not been given the opportunity to herd but has had some success with cats. Given the rough play she and her Sire engage in when beginning their mountain run, I think Carly would be a very effective cow dog if she only had cattle to move. Her Sire’s line is bred for moving cattle.

The week before she delivered her pups, Carly accompanied me to my clinical practice. Even though Carly has had relatively little training or socialization off the farm, I was amazed how gentle and sweet she was with each of my clients, especially those who were visibly sad. She has promise as a therapy dog!

Carly stands 20 inches at the shoulder and weighs a solid 52 pounds (pre pregnancy).

Pedigree: Cedar Creek Lad; Copper’s Light x Old Dance Into My Dream

He is Priceless to both of us. He can take care of as big a snake as there is and won’t hesitate to do so on his own. He loves new things. Always wanting to learn. He is from Marcy and Mark Oerly’s big male “Bert”. He has excellent working bloodlines. Also from Mrs. Gloria Corley, Twin Springs Farm female out of “Jack”. He is also a nephew to Bullard’s Incredible Ike. He is out of “Jack”. A great proven
stud dog. Both dogs have excellent bloodlines. He should put a good set of hips on your pup. His are as good as it gets. If you are looking for a working dog, therapy dog, farm/ranch or just a companion for your children these will work for you. He loves children to death endlessly.

Gus is a very handsome tri-colored English Shepherd male weighing approximately 70 pounds. Gus is the epitome of a well rounded dog. He has a fantastic demeanor, intelligent, very well behaved, alerts to farm predators, such as coyotes, and is an awesome vermin/farm pest eliminator (opossums, racoons, squirrels, moles, rabbits.) He loves to tree raccoons and squirrels.

Gus has excellent working bloodlines. He is very athletic and has a high guardian instinct in the fact that he is constantly keeping an eye on things around the farm. He is extremely loyal and everyone who meets Gus just loves him. He really is an exceptional dog and an exemplary example of the English Shepherd breed.

Molly is an overall awesome dog and I just can’t say enough good things about her.

Pedigree: Trail Blazer Benedict x Kona Kerra Ahrens of Orchard Hill

Comments:

Molly’s litter is due around February 8, 2023 and puppies will be ready for their new homes in early April. I’m expecting tri and black and white pups out of this litter, but we may be surprised with a shaded sable thrown in mix as well (we’ll just have to see.) Based on parents and parent’s pedigrees, this should be an amazing litter of puppies that have great potential as farm helpers and loyal companions.

We raised Maggee (born in 2014) on our farm, and purchased Gus in 2016 from Larry and Brenda Bullard. In 2020 we traveled to Idaho and purchased Molly from Kris Hazelbaker and Martha Ahrens.
