Purebred Scottish Terrier Puppies
Wilbraham Crunchasaur Hedley Rose

Update: 10-26-2018

Hedley Rose and Wilbraham Crunchasaur had a litter Oct.13, 2018!



(Photos are in chronological order from birth to present time...)


Willy (sire) is black, Hedley (dam) is a beautifully patterned silver wheaton. As her hair grows longer, the pattern softens and fades in the guard hair, but when groomed and trimmed, the pattern is remarkably sharp and duplicated straight down the back (each side repeats the same line patterns starting at the backbone).

ALL BUT ONE PUPPY HAVE BEEN RESERVED w/DEPOSIT!
If you want one, there is still time but there are a number of people inquiring or discussing sending a deposit. We have to go by the date a deposit is received. After that, the next litter may be in December for February 2019 availability and would be Aberdeen Ivy and McDoogal's puppies (likely Wheaten and/or Silver Brindle).

The puppy colored collars and "working" names are:
  1. Blue - Brady
  2. Yellow - Barraclough
  3. Purple - Sheldon
  4. White - Poppy (female)
  5. Orange - Higday
  6. Green - Freddy

At this point, we don't know the puppy final coat colors, but there are five males and one female! They all look black at this stage. If some turn out to be brindles, it often doesn't show up until a month or more goes by and their coats develop. In fact, one puppy from the last litter looked solid black until the first grooming, and then a beautiful brindle pattern was revealed in the soft undercoat fur. Scotties have two coats, a harsher guard coat and a soft under coat. The outer coat can be solid black, or it may have brindle patterns, but the under coat shows the most striking brindle pattern IF in fact the puppy develops a brindle coat. A puppy that looks black to both the breeder and the buyer might in fact be a latent brindle. So if you are opposed to anything but black, we will refund your full payment on return of the puppy should this happen.

That said, these little Scotties all look solid black right now. Unless we see some silver and tan develop, we'll list them as black. The sire can produce both pure black and silver brindle. The dam is a silver brindle. Usually out of six puppies we'll have at least two solid black.

This is Poppy, the female.

Hedley is a wonderful mother, who takes great care of her babies. She takes a little break to go outside and to visit with us outside the warm 82-degree F puppy room -- our utility room where the whelping bed is kept -- but she runs over to the door and barks once to let us know she wants to see the puppies. She runs in and checks them, and if they don't wake up, squeek and wiggle toward her for feeding, she satisfies herself that they are ok, then turns around and comes back out for a short break.

She sleeps with them all night -- well, maybe a couple of barks to wake us up and let her go outside at various times -- and they are growing fast. Their little collars are checked every morning when they are weighed. The percentage of growth is calculated each morning. If one doesn't grow as much as the others, we place it gently next to Hedley Rose before the others are moved back from one side of the divided bed, so it can "latch on" first and get a little more feeding time.

Hedley lets us remove the puppies and weigh them, check their collars, change the blanket each morning, without any protest. She knows we protecting them. Yet if one of the other adult Scotties comes in and gets a little too close to the bed, she immediately goes on alert.

If the Wheaten female, Abby, even looks too hard at them, Hedley leaps out with a soft growl and gets between her and the babies, letting her know she is pushing the limit and the next step will bring instant regret. Aberdeen Ivy is the Wheaten and youngest of the four adults, and is a strong Alpha type personality. She is just curious, and won't hurt the puppies, but Hedley doesn't take any chances. Yet as soon as Hedley comes out of the room and we close the door to it, all four play together just like they did before, no lasting personal issues! The change from best pals to protective mom begins the moment Hedley steps into the puppy room.


Documents

Both parent pedigrees can be downloaded from the table below. Pups will have AKC registration papers, puppy "kits", special info about Scotties from the Scottish Terrier Breeders Club, all medical records with proof of shots provided to buyers, and will be sold with detailed health warranty and guaranteed buy-back terms. Sold with full registration, but a $200 rebate check will be sent to purchaser on receipt of proof of neutering (copy of vet's invoice showing completed procedure).

Sold with full AKC registration, $1500. Deposit to hold is $500, applied to purchase price and refundable if for any reason you change your mind (but we appreciate knowing as soon as possible).


We do NOT ship puppies! They need to go with you, either in your vehicle or in a small carrier beside you on an airplane, never in cargo hold! We strongly recommend driving as it is much easier on the puppy, far less anxiety. We will provide puppy food, a favorite toy, non-rawhide chew bone treat for the trip, and a blanket that has been slept on by their mother so they can smell the familiar scent if you want to take it with you. Just bring a little bowl and a supply of water, plus another little bowl for puppy food if you are traveling very far.

The puppies need to be at least 8 weeks old before they leave for their new homes. That would be December 8th, 2018, or later. By that time their eyes are open, they are running around, physical health issues generally would be ruled out or discovered, and the first series of vaccinations would be documented. They would be eating solid food and ready to learn new names, new locations, and to handle riding in a car or in the cabin of an airplane.

We would appreciate buyers picking up their puppies as close to the 8th December as would be practical, as they are impressionable and more easily adapt to new circumstances, but also independent and ready to leave their group. People ask if the mother is sad to see them go... by that point, she's pushing them out of the way and hoping they will leave her alone! She wants her life back, wants to play with the other adults, and feels her job has been done, as best we can tell from past experience! (We humans are the ones who are sad to see them go! But also glad that they are going to good homes and will bring joy to someone else for the rest of their lives.)


Reserve a Puppy:

You can make a deposit to hold a puppy, or to pre-purchase, until they are all "spoken for". If you decide not to go forward after your visit, the entire deposit is refundable. Scotty puppies with good pedigrees, from a quality environment, are in very high demand in the Northwest, so don't wait too long or they will be gone. These are raised as companions, live in the home and are about as far from a "puppy mill" environment as you can get!
