How to adopt a Garlind Ridge puppy.
Puppy waiting list and questionaire
We now have 34 (soon
to be more) families who have 2 Garlind Ridge collies!
Please complete and click send if you would like to be on
the Garlind Ridge collie puppy waiting list.
We screen all potential adoptive families to be assured of the best possible
homes for our puppies.
Puppies sold as companions only,
not with full registration for breeding
I will honor the sale
of a breeding collies to the ones I have already promised I would ( I do stand by my word), however, there
will be an in-depth written contract in place ( I will no longer take the word of breeders) so that the collie never
ends up in a puppy mill as their home by sale or lease. I loathe puppy mills! I DO NOT want collies from me or the lines
I have worked so hard to produce to end up in puppy mills. I consider breeders who knowingly and purposely supply these
places with collies to be unethical and heartless, thinking of their own financial gain with no thoughts of the innocent
collie who has trusted and loved them unconditionally.
do your own research, you will find many obvious answers as to who is supplying puppy mills with normal eyed and non
carrier puppies for breeding.
Champions and titles are wonderful but that is not a priority with
us. We breed with priorities on great health and wonderful temperaments plus beautiful collies.
MDR1 gene is huge! We are working, step by step, to get rid of the collie drug sensitivity in our collies and the puppies
that come from us.
Garlind Ridge Collie puppies:
CEA clear or non carriers
PRA non carriers
MDR1 mutant/normal or normal/normal-
we DO NOT produce MDR1 mutant/mutant puppies
collies have all been tested for CEA, PRA, MDR1)
Please read information from research done at the Washington State
Multidrug Sensitivity in DogsSome dog breeds are more sensitive
to certain drugs than other breeds. Collies and related breeds, for instance, can have adverse reactions to drugs such as
ivermectin and loperamide (Imodium). At Washington State University's College of Veterinary Medicine you can get your
dog tested for drug sensitivity and keep up with the latest research.
Drug sensitivities result from a mutation
in the multi-drug resistance gene (MDR1). This gene encodes a protein, P-glycoprotein that is responsible for pumping many
drugs and other toxins out of the brain. Dogs with the mutant gene cannot pump some drugs out of the brain as a normal dog
would, which may result in abnormal neurologic signs. The result may be an illness requiring an extended hospital stay - or even death.
Breeds affected by the MDR1 mutation (frequency
Collie 70% !!!!
Also Collie eye!
Collie Eye Anomaly / Choroidal Hypoplasia (CEA)
of the CEA/CH gene mutation in U.S. Rough and Smooth Collies appears to be extremely high. In general, the frequency of affecteds
in Rough and Smooth Collies is well over 50%, and in some populations has been observed to be as high as 85-90% of dogs examined.
Why do we have a waiting list?

We have found that
families serious about the commitment of a puppy are willing to wait for one of our puppies. With adopting a puppy, you are
committing to caring and loving this puppy for it's entire life.
Our Puppies are very special to us, therefore
*We do not sell to Pet Shops
do not sell to Puppy Mills.
*Our puppies are not for resale-we expect them to live their entire lives with
the adoptive families if at all possible. If a family cannot care for the Garlind Ridge collie for any reason, this collie
should be returned to us.
*We do have puppy & collie visitation times welcoming those interested to come for a
visit at that time. With our large family, dairy farm, collies, and working off of the farm we are very busy. If
we granted visitations every time a family asked, we would have collie visitors nearly every weekend, taking away time
from our family time which is extremely important to us.
screen all potential adoptive families before they are put on our waiting/wish list for a Garlind Ridge puppy.
(puppy picking goes according to the date of when the questionaire is returned and accepted
as being on the waiting list)
For the safety of our puppies, we do not allow visitors
until the puppies are at least 4 weeks of age. Please do not ask to see puppies younger than this. We appreciate you honoring
our request for the safety of our puppies.
Our collies are a passion of ours. We love our collies and do what is best for them and their offspring.
We place our puppies in the best possible homes and have the right to refuse anyone the adoption of one of our puppies
for any reason at any time should we not feel comfortable with it.

Our collies and puppies are treated like family. Our girls give birth in our home
on blankets with us by their side until long after the last puppy of the litter has been born. Our puppies and their
mothers have a puppy area/bed lined with flannel sheets on their floor for the first 3 weeks of their lives. Newspapers
are slippery and can be hard on the development of the bones in puppy. Once the puppies begin to eat, they are moved to a
different area in our home with a larger area for play (we call them their puppy condos!) and interaction with their siblings.
Their Mom is free to go in and play with the puppies or be outside of the condo and keep a watchful eye over her puppies.
Note: We feel that lots and lots
of love and handling is very important in the first few days and weeks of a puppy's life. (This is called imprinting)
We guarantee that your puppy will come prespoiled, having had lots of interaction with our family, children and adults.
Any other questions,
please feel free to ask
We won't lose contact once your
puppy has left us, he/she is a part of the Garilnd Ridge family, we are always here for you and welcome updates and pictures.
*It is very important for us to meet
the families adopting our puppies.* Whenever this is possible, this is certainly our first choice.
times, due to the distances, families are unable to drive for the puppy and the drives for the puppy would be very hard on
the puppy. Due to the long drives, we have decided that we would ship puppies but ONLY on from Madison, WI or Milwaukee, Wi
with the flights being the shortest for the puppy that we can find
the puppy would be $450 which would be the cost of the airline ticket, Shipping crate, Vet check, Interstate Health Certificate
and delivery to the airport.
Some destinations may be more depending on our costs.
We keep in contact
with all families adopting our puppies;
this is very important
Ridge collies coming from us here in Wisconsin live in 38 states! They are:
and one of the most gorgeous places we have ever been,
several are in gorgeous Canada
We expect our puppies to spend their entire lives in the home that adopts
them from us.
Breeders: We have had many breeders interested in our collies due to the health checks we do.
We do not advertise that we will sell to breeders since the majority of our collies go to pet homes which we love. At
times, after extensive screening, we have sold a puppy as a breeder to the right home that will treat them like family.
We know that manybreeders will trade or sell their dogs to improve their lines but that is not what we want for
our puppies. When our puppies are placed, we want them to have a lifetime home, living with a family, not in a kennel.
Please do not ask us about a Garlind Ridge collie puppy to join your breeding program unless this puppy will become a part
of your family for it's lifetime.
