I think color specific breeders are weird... especially when it's ONE color only. But the dogs do have nice type! This puppy is effin adorable. http://www.cedarbordercollies.com/images/copper_web.jpg

If you could, meet the dogs and the breeder and decide for yourself! Susan Garrett is amazing. I definitely trust her judgement.

They have some very nice dogs, I quite like them. Other than the yellow/light eyes that is. There are much, much worse breeders out there, Cedar seems quite good about clearances and such where I know other sport breeders don't seem to bother with doing everything right.....

She didn't get any other dog from there...and has criticized Buzz's temperament and structure...so take from that what you will lol.

Didn't she write Shaping Success because of Buzz? He sounds like a very high drive dog. His lineage looks to be 100% working dogs which might be why! He definitely isn't much to look at though. That book reminded me of Gonzo a lot.

My favorite sport/colorful BC breeder is Contact Point. Prepare to spend $2000 on a puppy, but it's going to be a NICE puppy with a NICE personality!

Thanks for the all the info guys.

I have heard of Contact Point before... I "knew" someone on YT whose dog came from there - seems like a really cool dog.

^ pretty much what Allie, Laur, and others have said They seem to breed for color and temperament. Not a breeder I would recommend, purely because you can get very stellar temperaments out of sport or working bred dogs, and at least those breeders are breeding for something a little more than looks.

I do not see the draw to this breeder (color based, I guess?), however the dogs do look well health tested and cared for, which is nice.
