We raise an occaisional litter here. IvanLee puppies are lovingly raised in the home. We take our puppy raising and socializing very seriously, and feel it is of the utmost importance to get a good, early start on this. We firmly believe in stimulating those little minds. When it is time for our pups to leave home, they are ready, both physically and mentally, for a life full of fun and challenges! We highly recommend you contact us by phone for any questions you may have, as we have found that email is not a highly reliable source of communication. We can be reached by phone at 541.259.1275 , or email button is below.

*** Just a quick note, if you think you are interested in an IvanLee puppy***
We are committed to matching each available puppy with the perfect home. These little babies are our precious ones, and as such, we look out for their best interests in all ways, including new homes in their futures. We reserve the right to decide who we do or do not place a puppy with. If you write us about a puppy, tell us a little about yourself. We don't normally have time to answer a note as bland as "got puppies?". We'd like to know more about what you are looking for, where you live, what your home environment is like, what your plans are for the puppy, etc. If you are seriously interested, phone calls sometimes receive higher priority, and faithful interest and persistence is duly noted. We often ask for interviews and visits. We appreciate that a serious, conscientious person will understand how careful we are in placing puppies :-).
Companion puppies are placed on spay/neuter contracts,
and/or the Sheltie may be sterilized prior to placing depending upon the age.
Prospective Show dogs are typically placed on co-ownership contracts to
approved show homes only, Thank you.
