There are very few bedlingtons born every year in the United States, so if you're interested in a puppy, we reccomend that you find a reputable breeder and contact them when you begin your search to reserve a puppy from a future litter! Often, by the time our litters are listed online or the puppies are born, most (if not all) of the puppies are spoken for, so please contact us as early as possible in your search to ensure that you know when we are expecting puppies. We usually breed only once or twice each year, and our litters are carefully planned long before the puppies are born.
We are often asked whether we will have companion puppies available, or if we only sell show puppies. The answer is that we always have companion puppies in any litter we breed. Although we breed every single litter with hopes of puppies destined for greatness in the show ring and an aim to improve the breed, only a handful of puppies will ever make it to the show ring. Insignificant structural traits that the average owner would never notice, like slightly narrow ears, or a round-shaped eye, could eliminate the dog as a show candidate. However, that dog will make a beautiful, healthy, loving companion for a family. There are pet-quality puppies in every litter and we welcome all inquiries from those seeking a companion as well as those seeking a show or performance prospect.
All of the dogs we use for breeding are DNA 1,1 (clear), non-carriers, for Copper Toxicosis, have current eye CERF testing, have had their hearts examined by a licensed Cardiologist and have had their patellas examined to ensure they are healthy and clear of genetic abnormalities before breeding. Our puppies are also all CERF tested, receive age-appropriate vaccinations, are microchipped and de-wormed and have their hearts checked by a licensed cardiologist before we place any of them in new homes.
All of our puppies are registered with the American Kennel Club. Our show-prospect puppies are sold on a co-ownership agreement until they complete their AKC Championship, at which point we will sign off of their papers. All pet-quality puppies are sold on a spay/neuter contract with AKC Limited Registration, meaning that if the dog is bred, any resulting offspring will be ineligible for AKC registration and we retain co-ownership on all pet puppies until proof of spay/neuter is provided to us, in writing, by your veterinarian.
For many reasons, we do not ship our puppies to their new homes under any circumstances. All of our puppies must be picked up in person, including international sales. For those new families who live too far away to drive to us, we are located close to several major airports in the greater D.C. area (Dulles (IAD), Reagan (DCA) and BWI) and will gladly work with you to set up a time for you to fly out and pick up your puppy and bring it home with you.
Current & Upcoming Litters
We have several litters planned for 2018 & 2019. Please check back for more information as it becomes available.
March 2018 Litter
Shilling was bred to Bubbles in January 2018 for March 2018 puppies!
The sire of this litter, Shilling (BISS GCHG LAMZ Heads I Win Tails You Lose CAX RATI RATN) is one of our most decorated show dogs with 10 Terrier Group 1's, a NOHS Best in Show, many Terrier Group Placements, and he was Best of Breed at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show. He has produced two litters previously, with numerous Champion sons and daughters.
The dam of this litter, Bubbles (Ch LAMZ Champagne Wishes) had a short show career before going home to live as a spoiled pet with her co-owners. She was Reserve Winners Bitch at the 2014 BTCA National Specialty. She is a littermate sister to RBIS GCHG LAMZ Strike A Pose RN CAA RATI CGCA TKN and NBISS GCHB LAMZ Let Them Eat Cake CAA. Bubbles is the daughter to NBISS GCHS LAMZ Eleanor Rigby CAA RATI RATN CGC and Ch Trevelyan's Quiet Playing Games.
Bubbles delivered her litter mid-March 2018.
Current & Planned Co-Bred Litters
The litters below, co-bred with LAMZ Bedlington Terriers, are generally not bred and raised here in-house at LAMZ Bedligton Terriers. However, these litters are out of our lines and are lovingly raised by their co-breeders who share our breeding standards and adhere to the same health testing and socialization regimen as we do with our own puppies. Contact information for the co-breeders of the litters below will be listed under the litter announcement.
Please contact the co-breeder listed below for more information or to be added to the waiting list for these litters.
Planned 2018 Co-Bred Litter with M&M Bedlington Terriers
M&M Bedlington Terriers, owned by Morgan and Chris Miller, will be breeding Bug (Ch LAMZ Luck Be a Ladybug) in 2017. The sire of this litter will be announced once the breeding has taken place.
Bug is a beautiful, small, typey girl with fabulous sidegait, correct dark color, and a lovely front. She is a Terrier Group Placer from the classes. Bug is a littermate to our top-winning boy, Shilling (BISS GCh LAMZ Heads I Win Tails You Lose CAX RATI RATN), the #1 Grand Champion Bedlington Terrier of All Time, 2016 Westminster Kennel Club Best of Breed and multi-year #1 Bedlington Terrier Dog.
Bug is the dam of a 2013 litter, sired by MBISS GCh LAMZ Viva Las Vegas RN SE CA RATI RATN CGC, which produced Mira (Group Winning & Placing Ch M&M LAMZ Now U See Me Now U Don't), Harry (Ch M&M LAMZ Magic Man, Winners Dog at Montgomery 2014) and Bandit (Group Placing M&M LAMZ Slots of Fun).
