Peaslee's Elanor Proudfoot of the Shire

Shire is exceptionally kind-hearted, intelligent and responsible

About Shire

Shire is from Belle’s June 2016 litter, sired by Banks’ Cody Boy.

Shire is an exceptionally sweet, kind-hearted dog.  As a pup, she was friendly, spunky, shameless, adorable, and hilarious; she has become more thoughtful and serious as an adult but retains the open, funny nature that endeared her to us as a baby.  After much discussion regarding possible names we determined that Shire deserved a hobbit name – she has many hobbit-like qualities: loves eating, socializing, and digging holes, plus the hairy feet and short stature.  She is also very brave – the smallest of our dogs but ready to lead the charge when hawks or coyotes appear.

Shire is registered with UKC. His 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.
