Located in Southwest Idaho, we are small breeder/exhibitors of top quality Corgis. It's our goal to produce and exhibit the best healthy, sound, quality corgis we can that will, later, give many years of enjoyment to the homes they find their way into. As testimony of that, we're proud to have bred and owner handled 4 consecutive dogs in 3 consecutive generations that have gone to top rankings.
Our home is nestled atop a hill, on eight peaceful acres where the corgis have two and a half securely fenced acres to run and play. Visitors are ALWAYS welcome!
Ch. Brookehaven Sweet Serenade ROM (Bunny)
(Schaferhaus Aeroglend Trev'r X Beckridge Spellbinder)
FCI Int/Am/Can/Mex Ch. Fox Meadows Shasta PHC,ROM (Shasta)
(Ch. Nebriowa The Blacksmith CDX, ROMX X Ch. Schaferhaus Ul Doo's Babygirl)
Bunny and Shasta were our Foundation Stock. Both have since gone to the "Bridge" but left us a legacy of CH's and working titled dogs. Some of that legacy include:
Am/Can Ch. Castell Blue Ribbon Special PHC
U-CD Castell City Slicker Am.CDX/TD/CGC, Can CDX/TD, ASCA CD
Castell High Plains Drifter PT, JH
Can Ch. Castell Three Times A Lady
Can Ch. Castell Pure Country
Am Ch. Castell Special Gift
and the list goes on...........
1) CLEAR - dog does NOT HAVE the mutated gene, therefore, cannot pass it on to its get or get the disease.
2) CARRIER - dog has one copy of the mutated gene and can pass it on but NOT get the disease.
3) "AT RISK" - dog has two copies of the gene and stands a risk of actually developing the disease as well as passing it on to get. An "At Risk" test result, however, does not guarantee the dog WILL develop the disease. Research is continuing, hoping to discover what "triggers" the gene to cause the disease to develop.
I urge ANYONE searching for a new puppy to educate themselves on this disease by visiting the links below AND REQUEST TEST RESULTS FROM THE BREEDERS YOU ARE CONTACTING!! (In my educated opinion, there is NO excuse to justify NOT testing breeding stock for this gene!)
It is our promise, from this day forward, to NEVER, EVER again, knowingly, produce a dog with both genes at risk to develop this horrid disease. DM robs our corgis of many years of quality life, changes the lifestyle of the owner and, eventually, breaks our hearts when our beloved's can no longer go on. We have many links of information for DM on our main home page. If you have a dog you suspect is affected with DM ( or is mobility challenged), there is a wonderful chat list for corgi owners of both breeds (Pembroke and Cardigan) at http://www.yahoogroups.com called Wheelcorgis as that is what our guys become...corgis in a wheelchair! We also urge you to contact the University of Missouri and make a tissue contribution when your beloved gives up the fight.
WE MAKE THIS PUBLIC GUARANTEE THAT NO PUPPY PRODUCED AT CASTELL WILL EVER AGAIN, KNOWINGLY, CARRY BOTH GENES!
Please meet DM CLEAR KALLISTA A WISH AND A DREAM!
My puppy family can tell you I am not usually a big advocate of supplements/additives or special diets. However, in recent years, I and many others have noticed the increase of immune mediated problems in dogs as well as many varieties of cancer, skin disorders and allergies.. I have given considerable thought before recommending NuVet Labs. Please visit this link to learn all about a wonderful immune system support that I feel will be beneficial in the healthy life of your dog!

On December 1, we lost our very last Rescue. After over 30 years involvement in Corgi Rescue we will no longer be participating. Age and the toll on one's heart have simply gotten to be too much. Thank you to all those that have given forever homes to the corgis that have come into our Rescue over the years.
You may visit our Rescue page to view dogs we've helped in the past.
