Welcome to Fox Point Farm! Horses may be our business, but Toy Shelties are our passion and we love to share them with you! Our goal is excellence and we have the finest Mini and Toy Shelties and Toy Sheltie crosses available today!

If I am not the breeder of a listed litter, the breeder's name will be clearly posted in the first description.
We appreciate our clients and friends! We are offering our 10% discount on your second puppy or adult from us, and 20% off of your third.
Right now we have over 150 clients on our Sheltie Premium List. The current wait time is 12-18 months for boys, and 18-24 months for girls. Tiny sables with the classic Lassie look are most popular, and usually take the longest.
We have held back several young girls from our best moms to be our future moms. We have a few of those finally old enough to try, Shadow, Cookie and Diamond. As these girls get going, we hope wait times will be shorter.
Sadly our Poshie girls have stopped cycling. We are not planning to start with a new Poshie line at this time. We adore the Poshies we have, and if any clients do have a litter of puppies from one of our Poshies, I’d be ver interested in talking to you about getting a girl.
For now we are no longer offering Poshies or the Poshie Premium List. If you joined wanting a Poshie, I’m happy to send you a refund.
Right now we are in the process of retiring some beautiful girls. Some of these girls we have raised, others have come from friends. My goal when we are finding a new home for an adult is to find the perfect fit.
Adults can be much more difficult to settle in the first days and weeks. They don’t understand why they have moved and can be quite stand-offish and fearful at first. No matter how sweet and loving they were here, sometimes it takes time for bonding with their new family to happen.
If you are considering an adult, you must understand they will need time and a safe place to settle. This is not an instant trained dog to plug into your family. We live on a farm, most of our dogs have never been on a leash, they can learn, but they won’t automatically love walks around the neighborhood. They are also outside with us working during the day, and crated at night for the most part. We do have some dogs loose in the house, but it would be chaos if they all were. Be prepared to work on basic house training skills with them.
They are also used to ‘free feeding’, which means we do our best to have hard kibble available at all times for our dogs. This works great for us, bc our dogs get lots of exercise, and we rarely have anyone that overeats and gets overweight. This may not be possible at your home. They will adjust to once or twice a day feeding. It may take a moment like everything else.
If you select a girl that has recently had puppies, please know she will ‘blow her coat’. That means she will shed a bunch of coat and look pretty sparse for a little while. This is normal. Hormones surge with pregnancy, then drop with delivery. This triggers the coat to shed. Don’t worry, her coat will come back better than ever, especially after her spay. By spaying her, her coat will be much more stable and get much longer and fuller. It may require a little patience, but she will be as stunning as you imagined very soon.
I do REQUIRE a fenced yard for adults. It doesn’t have to be huge, but it needs to be secure and safe. Having a place they can potty off leash and run around, at least at first, is super important. This is non-negotiable.
After years of working with lots of clients, I’m now requiring that you live close enough that you can easily return to me if you aren’t a good match. I do my best to play matchmaker, but occasionally I fail. This is bad for the people, but tragic for the Sheltie. I’m no longer allowing long distance adoptions bc it’s too hard to get them back if there is an issue. I don’t want you to keep a dog that doesn’t fit your family, ever. This is bad for everyone. But I’m also tired of people desperate for a particular dog, then demanding we drive or fly crazy distances to take it back. Adults are less flexible than puppies. There is always a risk the two of you may not fall in love. Return needs to be easy.
We will have a current vet health exam and vaccines current on our available adults. Some are fixed, some are not. Adopters are responsible for the cost of spay/neuter, if needed, and any other health needs the dog has in the future.
This is not a free adoption, and you are not rescuing our adults. We are particular with whom we place our precious babies. We have 30 acres, a large home and kennel, we have room to keep everyone. Some dogs seem like they would really enjoy being the center of attention, so we do our best to place those with great people.
Right now we are looking at our girls and making some tough decisions for us, but I feel like good decisions for our girls ready for life as your best friend. If you are on the Premium List and are interested in an adult, please contact me to make an appointment to come see our retiring girls.
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! 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! Fox Point Farm/Charlotte Cannon does extensive, state of the art Genetic, Health and Temperament Testing on all our breeding dogs. We test for MDR1, VWD, CEA and DM. We OFA hips.
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!
Please read up on the health and size benefits of waiting until sexual maturity (12+ months) to spay and neuter, There are heart, bone, joint and ligament benefits, cancer prevention, plus the sex hormones signal the body to stop growing taller and prepare for reproduction. Early spay/neuter has been pushed for unwanted pregnancy prevention, but there has now been a flood of complications. Health benefits are first priority, but many times dogs will mature two or three times the size of their parents and littermates. Read more on the health benefits from UC Davis....
Fox Point Farm/Charlotte Cannon had an AKC Kennel Inspection in July 2017. It went beautifully and the inspector said, "our dogs were so well socialized, they don't know they are dogs." Our records were impeccable and he was completely impressed by the condition of our dogs and facility. It was a totally positive experience, and we passed with 100% in compliance.
All our dogs are on heartworm and flea prevention, they are all properly vaccinated, and they have full run of the farm. They are on excellent quality food recommended by our vet (Purina Pro Plan), and they sleep in our bed or a crate inside each night.

We are always happy to meet you to shorten your drive. We have also added a BRAND NEW Shipping option, we fly with your puppy and meet you! Airlines have made massive cutbacks, and we do not feel the option of shipping puppies alone is a good one. Read more about getting your new baby home...

Occasionally we have puppies or adults available to all Premium List clients. This is most often bc they are older and ready to go. Please keep an eye on the website and Facebook page to catch these occasional situations.

8/15/16 WARNING : There have been unethical individuals who have stolen my photos, text and information, to falsely represent them/it as their own, to sell puppies and get your money! I am shocked and disappointed at how easily this can occur and how little can be done to protect my dogs and me. Please be sure you are communicating with me personally, not a random person.
I have been contacted in the past month by 2 individuals who thought they bought one of my puppies. One went to a pet store in NYC and bought a Sheltie, the other went to ranch/farm in South Dakota and bought a Poshie. Both were told to contact me, Charlotte Cannon, for registration papers and my guarantee. These were not my dogs! Contact me personally before purchasing one of My Dogs!
I DO NOT EVER sell to pet shops or puppy mills! This is our ONLY and official Website.
We stand behind you for the life of your Toy Sheltie, Poshie and Toonie. We only breed when we have clients ready and waiting for new family members. If you EVER have the need to place or return your puppy/adult, we are here for you. We want our babies back if you cannot keep them. We have numerous clients who prefer older puppies or adults. We are committed to keep or find the perfect new home for your baby. We will take your baby back at any time, for any reason, no questions asked.
By joining the Premium List you will get an official number in line to choose your perfect puppy as puppies become available. It is by far the best way to get a puppy from us!
