Shire is from Belle's June 2016 litter, sired by Banks' Cody Boy.
Shire is a friendly, affectionate pup. Other adjectives used to describe her include spunky, shameless, brazen, adorable, and hilarious... what she does is done with gusto! After much discussion regarding possible names we determined that Shire deserved a hobbit name -- she has many hobbit-like qualities (loves eating, socializing and building holes, plus the hairy feet & stout stature.) We also wanted to acknowledge her family history. So, the puppy formerly known as "Ella" is now "Shire" as in 'of the Shire.' Her full name is Peaslee's Elanor Proudfoot of the Shire-- a fine hobbit name with allusions to her litter name (Ella), her grandma (Ravenpaw), and her country of origin.
Shire is registered with UKC. Her sire, Cody, was from Robert Cook, who bred working English Shepherds in Ohio for over 30 years. Many of Mr. Cook's dogs were registered with IESR. Unfortunately, it is not possible to retrieve those records so there are gaps in Shire's registered pedigree.
