Welcome to the web site of Joan House, I have been breeding and showing my Collies for 30 years.
Breeding for beauty, temprement and movement.
Over the years I have bred Champions in Rough and Smooth Collies in this country and abroad.
My first Champion was
CHAMPION LASSINA LOVE ME TENDER ( Rosie )
Sired by my own Lassina Lovely Boy (Jim)
She had some wonderful critiques, such as when she won her 4 CC's "Whichever angle she is viewed from' it is perfection" , "She has an expression thats stops the heart" "She must be one of the best bitches of all time". Tragicly she died at only 5 years old, but her prodigny went on to produce top winners, such as
Lassina Let It Be Me (Emma) Dam of
Lassina Let it be Love (Silver) who was Best of Breed at Crufts in 1990, she added another CC & 4 reserves to her name before having to retire early from the ring due to an operation. and
Lassina love in the night of Ladyfayre (Sarah) Dam of
Champion Ladyfare Blue Lagoon of Karava
I also had the pleasure to own
Ch & Irish Ch Sandiacre Sonny Jim of Lassina,
Rocky like, Rosie was by Lassina Lovely Boy
who also sired a Smooth Ch bitch exported to Sweden who has obedience & working titles as well. Rocky was a Champion by the age of 3 and was then retired until the age of 9 when he accompanied me on a trip to Ireland to do the 'Circuit' Rocky won all 4 Green stars that week and returned a couple of weeks later to take his Irish title making me a very proud owner.
I still continue to Breed collies of the correct type,and am one of the few kennels to still breed shaded sables which is the most beautiful of colours.
