About us

Hello and welcome to our very new kennel, "kennel page".

Having had many pets of all types over almost 40 years of marriage, we acquired our first Rough Collie as a rescue from a family member 3 years ago. We immediately "fell" for the breed and this sable boy was soon joined by a beautiful tri girl and then soon after that, a lovely blue-merle girl.

We both enjoy hugely the company of these amazing dogs and have had fun showing them too over the last 2 1/2 years. We are VERY new to the world of Collies and dog shows! The dogs are first and foremost our beloved pets’ and everything else comes second to that. It is nice to win at a show, but we always take the best dog(s) home afterwards! We've met some lovely people at shows, many of whom are now firm friends.

We live near Doncaster and have an excellent big garden with huge concrete area and an even bigger grassed area which the dogs love to play in. There is also an insulated double kennel block with runs for the pampered pooches to use, though they do enjoy the comfort or our sofa at every given opportunity!

This wonderful sable boy has an amazing and gentle temperament.   We have had him since he was 8 months old and love his beauty and his regal looks.   He’s done well in shows and would do even better in more if he didn’t think the judges were there just to amuse him and play!   He is a registered Pets As Therapy dog and does us proud.   He can be available for stud though we understand that, as an unproven dog, call for his services would be few.

Alanita Jasmyn Thro The Myst at Roshura - 'Mysty'
Ch Erjon Ebony Joker x Danfrebek Amazing Grace for Alanita

Our very mischievous Tri girl came to live with us at 8 weeks old.   She is definitely a character with attitude, and Shaun calls her his little thief.  
She certain stole his heart and has such a pretty face.   She is full of fun and very crafty when food is around and is top dog of the pack.   Mysty too has done very well in shows and was at Crufts 2015.


Gemheid Lilac Light at Roshura - 'Lila'
Wicani Where Eagles Dare at Gemheid x Gemheid Wribbons of Light

Lila was another 8 week old when she came home.  She is THE most laid back of the 3, very gentle, obedient and a total delight.  
Lila does very well at shows and qualified for Crufts 2015 at 8 months old.   She has also qualified for Crufts 2016.  
This little lady is also a Pets as Therapy Dog, enchanting the staff and patients at a local dementia unit each week. 

We keep in touch with all the breeders of our Collies, they have given us lots of very helpful advice and masses of encouragement over the time we have had these lovely dogs, we are eternally grateful for this support.

Hopefully, soon, we will be breeding from our girls and though we look forward to this, we realise its not all plain sailing and can be a scary prospect!

Thank you for your interest in Roshura Collies

Very best wishes
