Available Puppies and Adults




Welcome to Fox Point Farm Toy Shelties and Poshies Available Puppies and Adults page!

At FPF raising and offering the finest AKC Toy and Mini Shelties, Toy Sheltie/Toy Aussies and Poshies is our Passion!  We put a tremendous amount of love, time, research and money into improving the quality, health, temperament, size and type of our AKC toy-size Shelties, Toy Sheltie-Toy Aussies and Poshies! We are constantly studying the newest advances and discoveries to progress our care and breeding program to be one of the best in the nation! I am here to help other breeders who need support, advice and honest leadership as well. If you have a question about our program, about our dogs or Toy Shelties, Toy Sheltie-Toy Aussies or Poshies in general, I'm always here to help!

We are excited about the new USDA law requiring all breeders with 4 or more breeding age females, sell online or ship, to be fully inspected and licensed by the USDA in accordance with the Animal Welfare Act. We feel this is an excellent step to shut down the puppymills throughout the Unites States.
We have contacted the USDA and they are making a visit as soon as field agents are available.
We are and were already in full compliance of the AWA standards of care and record keeping.
We have built a brand new kennel to comply to their housing requirements. We are also putting in a new tiled room in our home for our nursery (puppies are born and raised in my bedroom).
We do wish to continue to serve clients from all over the country and the world with safe, affordable shipping options. 
We encourage you to ask all breeders you are considering, how they feel about this new law and if they plan to become licensed. Beware of people 'dumping' their dogs to escape this new legislation. This will give responsible breeders more credibility. It will also help you find and trust the best breeders with breed improvement as their goal.

Genetic Testing at Fox Point Farm 
We test for:


von Willebrand’s Disease (vWD)

vWD is a clotting disorder that can result in uncontrolled bleeding, depending on the type of vWD.  It is a very serious disorder with no treatment or cure. DNA tests are available to detect carrier, clear, and affected dogs.

Hip Dysplasia

Hip Dysplasia a painful, often crippling disease caused by an abnormality of the hip joint where the head of the thighbone (femur) does not fit properly into the pelvic socket. It is often progressive, causing inflammation, pain, and arthritis. The inheritance of hip dysplasia is polygenetic and multifactored, meaning more than one mode of inheritance is involved and environmental factors such as weight and growth rates can also play a part. The hips of breeding dogs should be evaluated by a specialist in canine orthopedics prior to breeding.

Multi-Drug Resistance (MDR1)

Multi-Drug Resistance is found in a number of herding breeds, and results in a sensitivity to certain medications. It is found as the result of having the MDR1 gene – better known as the multi-drug resistance gene mutation.  Veterinarians are well aware of the possible presence of this gene in herding breeds, and appropriate precautions and alternatives are provided. DNA testing for normal and affected dogs is available.

Adults/Older Puppies

At Fox Point Farm our great producers and pets stay for a lifetime. We have the room for all of them to stay, but occasionally we have a sheltie or poshie that  doesn't like life on a busy farm and would rather have their own family and maybe a couch with no competition. All our adults are crate trained and either sleep in the bed with us or in a crate at night. Most have free rein of the house, but we do watch the boys more carefully (breeding boys may mark in the house where another has marked before). We keep belly bands on our breeding boys when they are inside. We work outside, so few of our dogs are used to being inside all day. They may need a refresher on asking to go out. If I'm sick they will lie with me on the bed all day, but that's about the biggest 'inside' day they have. They are all super sweet, smart and have tolerated all kinds of people and all kinds of animals. Every adult we have sold/placed has really done amazing! I think they love all the extra attention a small family can give.

None available at this time.

Expected Litters:
 When we have clients ready and waiting on our Premium Waiting List, we will breed our girls that come into season. We do our best to fill puppy orders as they come in without ever raising more puppies than we have clients ready to adopt. These are the girls we have bred.
 
Not all moms 'catch' or carry their puppies to term. We have several 'maiden' girls we are testing right now. We have high hopes for them. If they fail to catch, carry or raise puppies over two heat cycles, they may become available as pets.

These girls are all super sweet, house-broken/crate trained, great farm and family companions! We do hope all our girls have big healthy litters! We update these pregnancies as changes occur.



Veronica (Pom/Pap) to Bullet (AKC Sheltie) due approx 2/2/15


  We expect gorgeous dark sable little Poshies with loving personalities!
If you desire a tiny, under 10lbs, many under 8lbs, intensely loving and devoted baby with an easy-care coat and precious face, this could be your litter! Super smart and easy to train, these energetic Poshies are a great choice for the family who really wants an interactive, fun companion!
Both Veronica and Bullet are my dogs, their puppies will whelp in my bedroom and will be raised in my home.
I will provide my outstanding Guarantee on this litter.
This litter is eligible for for registration with the AKC Canine Partners and  the Carolina Toonie Club.
Update: 1/20/15 Veronica is getting bigger each day! We will be going for her pre-delivery xray very soon!



Ember (AKC Sheltie) to Prancer (AKC Sheltie) due 2/10/15


  Teacup first time mom, we expect tiny teacup AKC registered sables and maybe a tri with pretty blazes and full white collars.
Ember is a TINY (10.5" and 5-6lbs) AKC Toy Sheltie girl from California. Our dear friends Monica and Rick Lavers sent Ember to us a year ago knowing we had tiny unrelated boys for Ember. We have been waiting and waiting for her to cycle, and it's finally time! We have chosen our tiniest boy, Prancer, for her first litter. Our fingers are crossed we will have a successful tie, conception, pregnancy and delivery. We will be prepared in case Ember needs a c-section. This is a landmark litter for us, although we have produced tiny teacups, this will be the tiniest mom we have ever bred. Ember is nearly 3 years old (plenty mature enough) and her tiny mom free-whelped (no c-section) her litter with no complications. This is an exciting litter!
Both Ember and Prancer are my dogs, their puppies will whelp in my bedroom and will be raised in my home.
I will provide my outstanding Guarantee on this litter.
This litter is eligible for for registration with the AKC as Shetland Sheepdogs.
Update: 1/20/15 Ember is getting bigger each day! We will be going for her pre-delivery xray very soon!


  Iris (Toy Aussie) to Bullet (AKC Sheltie) due approx 2/23/15
(Wendy James breeder)

  We expect breathtaking blue merles and tris with loads of flashy white markings and many with blue eyes!
This is one of our most popular pairings! Iris and Bullet have produced some of most strikingly beautiful blues and tris we have ever seen! They are always snapped up immediately and we get loads of awesome updates after their puppies have gone home! My Diva is from their first litter and Everyone that visits wants her! Don't miss this successful repeat pairing!!!
  Iris belongs to and puppies will whelp and be raised at the home of my partner and experienced breeder, Wendy James.
  Wendy will provide the same outstanding guarantee I give.

This litter is eligible for for registration with the AKC Canine Partners.

More Information:

Toy and Mini Shelties are considered 'undersized' by the AKC, but they are the original Shetland Sheepdog of UK type. Almost all of our Shelties are registered with the AKC as AKC Shetland Sheepdogs. Being 'undersized' or below the height for the AKC breed standard limits your participation in AKC Conformation showing only. AKC puppies raised by us are eligible for all other AKC Programs including AKC Agility and Herding competitions. Many of our AKC registered Shelties come from Championship Conformation lines, so even though they are tiny, they are structurally and conformationally very correct.  Occasionally a puppy will grow to be 'in size', these puppies are completely eligible for ALL AKC Events including Conformation. We strive to raise perfect Shelties in tiny packages, and most of our Shelties must be seen to appreciate their size and correctness because in photos they look exactly like standard size Shelties. Make an appointment to come visit us today to see our beautiful dogs!

ALL our puppies are now eligible for either AKC Shetland Sheepdog or AKC Canine Partners registration! AKC Registration provides a multitude of benefits! Now these benefits are available to all our puppies! In your Puppy Pack you will receive either a traditional AKC Registration Form or a new AKC Canine Partners Registration Form. See AKC Canine Partners for more info about the new program!

We are obsessed with raising Toy Shelties that are as long-lived and healthy as standard size shelties. We believe some of our choices actually make our shelties healthier than standard show breeder's puppies. "Line-breeding" or 'in-breeding' is a common, accepted and recommended practice amongst many show breeders. They breed in 'families' to "set" consistent type, coat, head shape and overall conformation characteristics. I understand from a genetics point of view that by 'doubling up' on certain genes/dogs/families that a breeder is more likely to produce puppies with more consistent looking exteriors, I believe having fewer genes in the gene pool puts the puppies at more risk for health and personality defects. We believe 'out-crossing' (breeding unrelated dogs) is the best way to avoid bad recessive genes that create these health and personality problems that can severely shorten your dog's life and make things very expensive as well. Please understand by outcrossing size within a litter can vary. The vast majority of our puppies are toy-size or minis as adults, but there is an occasional small standard that pops out too. We do our best to recognize them and predict their size at birth and at least before they go home. Please know they may be the healthiest standard sheltie you can find, with the best temperament and would be fully eligible to show in AKC Conformation competition.

Some other toy sheltie breeders have a few unethical practices to watch out for too. Some breed dogs with health defects (heart murmurs, liver shunts, kidney issues, etc) to produce tiny shelties. These issues can cause a dog to be smaller than it would be normally, and these issues can pop up in puppies of any breed who are smaller than expected. Make sure your breeder has their adult dogs checked before breeding them, and ask what their policy is if a puppy turns up with an issue. Ethical responsible breeders will fully investigate the issue and many times retire one or both of the parents. There is also a popular practice in some breeders to withhold food from puppies and adults in an attempt to 'stunt' their growth. This is obviously dangerous and stupid, most dogs will grow 'late' once they get proper nutrition, but damage to internal organs can be irreversible and significantly shorten their lives. Please be aware that buying the 'runt' from a standard litter (or any litter) can be risky as well. Many true runts have internal problems who make them so tiny. Don't fall for these common 'tricks', they could cost you a broken heart and loads of money.
Read The Truth About Runts.

We are so confident in our program that we offer the BEST GUARANTEE IN THE BUSINESS! Your puppy/adult is guaranteed against any health, personality, size, training problem for the first three years. Return your puppy/adult during the first three years for ANY REASON for a FULL REFUND of your purchase price (and of course you may choose to get another puppy instead). We will take back any puppy or adult we have sold (or placed), at any time, for any reason. We will not judge you if your life changes and you need to give up your dog. We are here to support you and your dog, do not hesitate to request our help, we do not wish to ever see our dogs in need of a rescue group. We live on a farm and have plenty of room to keep any of our dogs (or other shelties) in need of a home.
See our Guarantee and Contract.

All that being said, we are well aware and concerned about pet overpopulation in this country. We only breed girls when we have qualified, suitable families desiring puppies. We believe shelters and rescues are doing their best to help needy dogs find excellent homes. We encourage you to consider a rescue when looking for your next family member. But we also see the need for responsible, ethical breeders with a positive vision for the future of their breed to produce excellent puppies for your consideration too. If nobody is looking to the future, only accidental and for-the-money litters with a myriad of problems will be available to buy/adopt and our beautiful breed will be lost. There is a need for responsible breeders to still produce puppies for their clients who desire excellence.

Potty Training challenges are the biggest reason puppies, adults and elderly dogs are given away. We are super excited bc we feel we have found the solution for these issues, the Puppy Potty Training Apartment! It is a simple yet revolutionary way to train your puppy or adult! They come in many sizes and are perfect for dogs of all ages. We use the Puppy Potty Training Apartment and we have a discount coupon so you can too!
See Potty Training Apartment.

Lastly, please understand raising Toy Shelties is a challenging task. Sometimes getting tiny girls to cycle, stand to be bred, get pregnant and carry puppies full term is the most challenging part. They don't all make great moms, few do in fact. It generally takes 2-3 years of trying before we can see if one of our girls is going to make a good mom. Before birth, moms need extra monitoring in case delivery is tough; and occasionally super tiny moms need a c-section. Complications in delivery, taking too long to deliver and breathe, can cost a tiny puppy its life fast.  Puppies take enormous amounts of time once they are born to make sure they are growing and cared for properly. Many puppies need tube-feeding to get started; they are so tiny they fatigue before they can drink enough milk on their own to survive and grow. Puppies need perfect temps (about 85 degrees) and perfect humidity. They need constant supervision the first few days to keep mom from accidentally suffocating one (or more) by lying on them (their voices are soft; their screams are unheard). Suffice it to say, breeding toy shelties is a labor of love with many heartbreaks and tremendous cost, but when the puppies are here, healthy, adorable and meeting their new families, all the effort is worth it!

Due to such high demand for quality puppies, we co-breed with the following breeders.
Your Premium List Deposit qualifies you for FPF puppies and for their puppies as well:
* Wendy James (partner and co-breeder with several girls)
* Vanessa Ward (Precious)
* Lauren Elhers (Paisley)
* Jenny Brennamen (Beatrix)
* Jennifer Wilson (Gracie)

Our shelties and poshies may not be our whole life (we are professional horsemen), but they certainly make our lives whole and full of joy and passion!

See Sheltie History for more information about how our Toy Shelties are the original, foundation Sheltie of UK Type.

Pick-up and Shipping

We are happy for families to come here and meet us and all our family before or after their decision to purchase a puppy from us. We love to share our shelties and poshies with you! There are restrictions, like not seeing/holding the really young babies, that are for the safety and emotional well-being of our moms. But short of that, we love visitors!

The AKC suggests all puppies wait until at least 8 weeks of age to go to their new homes.

We offer Air Shipping. It has been safe and deliver healthy, happy puppies to their new families.

Most Air Shipping is $350/puppy. Occasionally it might be as little as $300, if you desire Delta Dash, short notice, it could be as high as $450. As long as arrangements are made 48 hrs in advance, the price can stay down. Shipping price includes a Health Certificate from the vet, a crate, the flight and a tiny bit for gas to the airport. We ship using Delta most often. Shipping can be done by air as long as temps are between 35-85 degrees. We have shipped many many puppies safely and successfully with no horror stories to date.

What is the best way to get a puppy?

Puppy Application

Because our puppies are so challenging to raise and so few are available each year, we have created 2 Waiting Lists to make sure our serious clients get an option at the puppy of their dreams. We used to offer only our free Regular Waiting List, but when puppies became available whole litters would sell out in a matter of a few hours. We had clients who had been potentionally waiting months, who would miss the email and miss the puppies. We still offer our free Regular Waiting List but if you are serious about getting a puppy from us, I highly recommend joining the Premium Waiting List.

At Fox Point Farm we have girls here that we breed to our boys, but we also have friends who breed their girls to our boys. We do offer these friends' puppies to our Premium List clients as well as our own puppies. This way our clients have more quality puppies from which to choose. If you only wish a puppy from Fox Point Farm or you only desire an AKC puppy, please make that clear to Charlotte when you join the Premium List.

The Premium Waiting List is where nearly all our puppies are sold. For a $250 TOTALLY REFUNDABLE for ANY REASON deposit, you get a specific number in line. When puppies become available, we offer them to each member of the Premium List in order before offering to our Regular Waiting List or the public. Clients get 5 days to choose a puppy before it becomes available to the next client. Once a puppy has been made available to you, you may choose it at any time (you do not have to pick in 5 days), but be aware it may be available to others too. We keep your preferences on sex, color, size and markings so we are not pestering you with puppies that do not fit your 'wish list'. Make your list as general or detailed as you desire so we can offer you the puppies you want to see.


Once you have chosen a perfect puppy, a deposit is needed to secure it as yours until it is time for it to go home. Most deposits are $500 and if you have already joined the Premium List and paid $250, you will only owe $250 more. If you are not on the Premium List, you will need to send the full $500. If a puppy has gone through the Prem List clients and it made available to the Regular Waiting List and the public, first deposit received on a puppy will secure that puppy. No puppies will be held without a deposit.

How do I pay my deposit and for my puppy?

We have several ways to pay your deposit and your balance. We accept Paypal (at no extra charge) to make paying fast, simple and safe. You may also pay by personal or certified check or with a money order. Of course we accept cash too! Please have your puppy paid for in full before you intend to either pick-up or ship. If paying with a check, please allow time for your check to arrive and clear our bank. If paying the balance when you arrive, we request cash. No checks will be accepted when picking-up.
