We have started our waiting list for puppies Collies in 2021. First litter is due to be born April 4th.

We do not like our Manchesters to go into homes in the colder months as they then usually do not get the socialization and exposure that they need to be well adjusted dogs.

We may have three older females available if we find the right home close by. As this way we could have them visit and adjust before leaving for a new home. Both will be spayed and up to date on shots. Also a 2 year old spayed female needing to be rehomed due to allergies. Prefer people with rescue or Manchester experience. 

We are accepting adoption forms again as a lot of our people in the States and we will not know to closer to the time if they will be able to get their puppies across the border. Call 905-382-6627 or email for an adoption form. Moonshadowspage@sympatico.ca.  or kentnjodi@gmail.com. Or messenger Jodi at our facebook page.

We are dedicated to producing quality Standard Manchester Terriers, Smooth and Rough Collies for pet and show. All of our dogs are our loving pets and show dogs. They are not kennel dogs but part of the family.

We specialize in European and Australian Bloodlines as I do not feel that a Toy Manchester is the same breed. Only in the States and Canada that I know of can you have a Standard Manchester with no Standards in it’s bloodline.

However, since we breed for pure Standard Manchesters most of ours tend to be larger than the recommended size for the Breed Standard here in America.

Our main purpose in breeding is to preserve this breed with healthy, quality, and good temperament. I am one of the few breeders that can run same sex dogs together with each other without conflicts. This is a breed that is on the vulnerable breed list in it’s Country of Origin. They are way to good a companion dog that loves to please and be with it’s owner for it to go extinct.

Our first Collie was a drop off dog. When he passed away of old age, we decided to get into Smooth and Rough Collies. The Smooth Collie has less of the work than a rough as far as grooming goes. However, they shed more constantly. Both have the same wonderful temperment.

Our house and where we keep our dogs is inspected every year by the Niagara Falls Animal Control Officers to become a registered Kennel in Niagara Falls.

Our next love is Canadian Horses. They are like large dogs. Love to greet and follow you around. Our horses are now very old. But in very good shape and we can still ride them. We also have a Kentucky Mountain Horse mare broken to drive so we enjoy taking her out on buggy rides. 

Kent and Jodi Parkinson reside in Hamilton. Jodi has shown and raised her own Manchesters now for a number of years sharing the Moonshadows Kennel name. Jodi looks after our facebook page, and shows in confirmation, agility, rally and obedience trials.
