We would love to have you fill out our 

Puppy/Collie Questionnaire

which will let us know more about you and your family
and what type of home you would have for one of our Collies.  

You will get a text box with a "Thank You" message if you have submitted the form correctly.   


We would also be happy to help you find other responsible breeders.

Life does have a habit of getting very busy here at Riverrun/Galatean
and we don't sit down at the computer daily.

If we don't respond within a week, please write again.

Please understand that when we do any breeding here at Riverrun/Galatean, it is for ourselves first.
We are not a business or a kennel and we do not breed for income.  
Our collies and puppies are raised in our home with lots of love and care. 
We carefully plan each litter to improve upon each generation
with health and temperament being a top priority.  
We breed with the hope of keeping one or more puppies from any litter that we have.  
At times, there are companion puppies available.
 
Our Collies excel in conformation and performance and many are therapy dogs.
They excel in the most important place of all - as fabulous companions and members of a family!


*   *   *   *   *
Because we feel it is important to meet and approve the families or individuals 
that are interested in adding a Riverrun/Galatean Puppy/Collie
into their lives, we do not ship our puppies.

If you find someone that will ship you a puppy, without meeting you or your family ahead of time,
red flags should be raised!

Mother Nature can be extremely challenging at times when breeding a litter.  
  A Collie female can miss when bred, re-absorb her litter, have a singleton or small litter, etc.

The first two weeks after a puppy is born is always the hardest
and at times Mother Nature has her own agenda.  
Mom and Pups receive 24/7 care during the first two weeks.  

Newborn puppies are born with their eyes and ears shut.  
They will not open until the pups are around two weeks of age.

Our wonderful cat "Wilder"

He would always cuddle with our new puppies

It was amazing to watch!
