About Us

Avondale Collies truly began when I met my husband in 2003, until then the collies bred, owned and loved by me were under the Roselyn kennel name.  We are located in central Georgia  just outside of Atlanta.  Hoping to breed 1-2 litters a year we have a small breeding program and big dreams.  We are excited about our newest hopefuls that we have here.

I have been in collies over 20 years.  I finished my first smooth by the age of 15 completely owner handled.  I am thrilled that my daughter has shown interest in going to the shows with me.  She helped train our last litter and has stepped into the ring numerous times since then.

We have a few special retired girls with us now and you can view our History page to see some of the collies that taught me so much about this world.

Avondale’s All Dolled Up   “Sookie”

CH Southland Fort Sumter x Overland Just Teasing

CH Avondale Spiritwind Aurora

“Lyra” finished owner handled in 2011 after having a beautiful litter of 4 blues for her breeder/co-owner.  One of her puppies finished after placing at the National Specialty.

Overland Just Teasing “Tease” was a very special girl.  She was going to be my foundation for Avondale.  She gave me a beautiful litter of all girls, 2 of the 4 are still here today.  Due to family commitments and the loss of our son we took a break from breeding and showing.  Her daughters are beautiful but regretfully were never bred.  They are still part of my vision and I enjoy looking at their smiling faces daily.  We are starting over with our current collies and believe they have the pieces to the collie puzzle we hold dear.
