Information about the litter

Parents (litter pedigree)

We are incredibly grateful to have been allowed to use Zeb (Sh Ch Madeleys Time Challenger). Born in 1997, I only met him once, but I absolutely loved his children. In the children I met, I saw beautiful, athletic Border Collies with lovely temperaments and drive. Many went on to have very successful obedience careers, and his son from the Jonjosam kennels went on to be an obedience champion. Some of his semen was stored and when the 2020 restrictions were lifted enough for vets to start doing repro work, I asked if there was any way I could use him, not really expecting the answer to be "yes". But the answer was a very kind "yes"!
