Bell (AKA Simon's Sister)

We obtained Simon from Shady Nook last January. He is the brother of the mother (Bell) of these pups. I can not say enough about how wonderful a dog he is. He has a beautiful form, wonderful coat, and a regal gait. But that is the least of it. He has such a loving disposition, while he is full of spunk and a bit of mischeif. We could not be more pleased. All of the other dogs we met when we picked up Simon were clearly of superior breeding. We would highly recommend Shady Nook. In fact, we are hopeful to bring Bell home once her pups are whelped. Steve and Maureen Mahoney

 Best Scotties Ever A+++++

First time shopper online and my experience with Sindee was great. I live in Orlando, Fl and the puppy arrived perfectly. I love my new puppy. He is healthy, full of energy and very very smart. I recommend every one to buy with confidence from Sindee. The Scotties are pure breed. Thank you, Sindee for our new family member. He is bringing happiness to our home

Shady Nook Scotties are wonderful

We love our Angus. He is 3 months old now, and we have had him since he was 8 weeks. I'm not usually an internet buyer, so I was a little nervous making such a big purchase over the internet and buying a puppy that I had never seen. When we spoke to Sindee of Shady Nook Scotties, it just felt right. I could tell that she loved her animals and that Angus's Mom and Dad were well taken care of and of good temperment. Sindee told us that Angus would have that true Scottie spirit and she was right! She sent us photos and emails each week telling us how he was growing and how he was interacting with the other puppies. I would truly reccomend buying a Scottie from Shady Nook. They are honest Scotty Loving People!

Very Happy with our puppy, Jack!

I called and spoke with many ppl about scottie pups. Sindee was the only one who took the time to talk with me about everything from beauty to genetics. She also had the paperwork to back up her statements of Jack's parents being tested for VWD. I am thankful for that. I took my baby to the vet today..I got him yesterday, and got an excellent bill of health. He did have ear mites, but the vet assured me that puppies can be born with mites, so not to worry. He was tested for worms, which he was free of, and I was told Scottie Cramp won't show yet, so we'll see. But, he is the most fun, energetic, beautiful, black, and paper trained pup I have had the pleasure of being a mom to in over 9 years. SO, thank you Sindee and Dale for a great buying experience! I would highly recommend you to anyone/everyone for a scotty pup. (not to mention the puppy pack they give and his up to date shots and worming). Again...thank you so much. Tina Bailey

What a Wonderful Experience!

I would recommend anyone to buy a puppy from Shady Nook Scotties. Dale and Sindee are wonderful people who really care about their baby scotties. At first, I was afraid of purchasing my puppy online. My family has had scotties since 1989 and we have never purchased a puppy online until now. It was simply the best experience. Dale and Sindee sent us pictures every week. They answered all the questions and were always helpful every step of the way. Our baby, Sally, is beautiful, healthy and energetic. She has been that way ever since she stepped off of the plane. I could tell that she had been loved and played with the first couple months of her life. She (Sally) wants everyone to know that she was in good hands at Shady Nook Scotties. Please do not be nervous about getting your puppy from Dale and Sindee. You will not regret it. Feel free to email us if you have any questions. Happy puppy finding! Janelle Peele

After losing our beloved Scottie,I knew we needed to fulfill our lives once again with Scottie love.Our first scottie was purchased at a pet store, so I knew I didn't want to go that route again.I was very apprehensive to do business over the internet, so I proceeded with caution. Sindee and Dale of Shady Nook immediately put to rest all of my fears. They are wonderful, loving, honest, professional people. The whole procedure of flying a puppy from Indiana to New York was truly effortless. Everything Sindee and Dale promised was delivered in a very timely fashion and they kept in constant communication with me. That is very important to the first-time buyer! I would not hesitate to recommend to any of you Scottie lovers out there to do business with Shady Nook. I am forever grateful to Sindee and Dale for selling us a healthy, beautiful puppy!Shady Nook is FIRST RATE!

 Quality Scottie Breeder

I bought "Oreo", a beautiful black male Scottie, from SHADY NOOK. After interviewing Mrs. Hart, her passion for this breed was apparent. The experience was great. The puppy arrived by plane in great health (as per my Vet). While in the waiting period, Mrs. Hart kept us informed about the puppy's condition by emailing weekly pictures, weight progress, and details of our interest. She was constantly available to discuss questions/matters. Before arrival, she sent us a package containing quality food/vitamin samples, toys, collar, health care reference, and other miscellaneous. She subsequently surprised us by sending a towel with the scent of Oreo's mother "to make his adaptation smoother." Her excellent dedication, breeding, and customer service exceeded my expectations. Oreo is now registered with the AKC which speaks of the quality of the puppy. If you are searching for a Scottie over the Internet, I highly recommend this breeder. C. Rodriguez Tampa

Pearls of wisdom for my Harry baby

I purchased my Scottie baby in June of this year from Sindee. I was very pleased with the communication she maintained with me long distance via the internet prior to my puppy pick up(photos, weight gain and other milestone information). I was impressed at how she is able to tell if her puppies are going to a good home even though she is unable to meet all the buyers in person prior to the sale. She and Dale are very knowledgable and helpful regarding the care of Scottie puppies and how best to help them transition to their new home and family. She was also very accommodating in arranging the logistics of the puppy pick up so I could get him while I was visiting Indiana from out of state. My little Pacer has been a great source of fun and joy. He looks just like the Henry drawings from MEnglebreit. So if a Scottish terrier is the breed for you, a Shady Nook Scottie should be at the top of your list.

Would I recommend Shady Nook? Aye!

I was so impressed with the way Sindee breeds her dogs and the obvious love that she has for the breed. She breeds Scotties exclusively. All of her dogs are like part of her family and are raised in her home rather than a kennel. I think that this illustrates that breeding Scotties is not merely a business to her, but a passion as well. I also think that it makes for a well adjusted dog that feels "at home" in your home. Her concern is not only breeding pet-quality Scotties, but also being sure to place them Scottie-quality homes. She understands the breed and I feel certain that she would not sell one of her dogs if she felt that the buyer would provide a questionable home. She has a deep concern for the health and welfare of these dogs and the results of her concern are healthy, happy puppies. Not only would I recommend Sindee, I would encourage anyone who interested in adding a Scottie to their family to make no decision until they have talked with Shady Nook Scotties.

We Made The Right Choice

We have owned several scotties over the years. We knew the breed, but were unable to locate one in our state. It was important that our puppy came from a home that offered love and dedication to their animals. A puppy brought up in another atmosphere can become skittish and aloof. We wanted a family pet. Sindee sent us several photos after the puppies were born so we could choose one. She answered all our questions and invited us to meet the parents and feel comfortable in our puppy. We were so impressed that we purchased two puppies from her. Our sweeties Shelby and Coconut joined 12 year old Spencer. I would definitely recommend Sindee to anyone who wants a quality Scottish Terrier to raise.

The Best Ever

From my first conversation with Sindee, it was evident that she is a breeder who does everything that it takes to raise Scotties that are healthy, family-friendly, and possess good temperaments. Our Maggie is a good example of Sindee's success in these areas. Sindee gave us honest answers to our questions and continues to respond promptly when we e-mail her with additional questions. Maggie is the third Scottish Terrier that we have owned, and our experience in working with Sindee is by far, the best we've had. We would not hesitate to recommend Shady Nook Scotties to anyone who is interested in owning a Scottie. Working with this breeder is a very positive experience.

 Awesome Scottie and Breeder

I highly recommend Sindee as a Scottie breeder! She is knowledgeable, caring, loving, and most of all a good and honest person. We feel so fortunate to have found Sindee who breeds only Scotties and is committed to the breed. We were so impressed with the entire litter and how she cares for her "babies". Sindee spent time with us introducing all her dogs and especially our puppies parents. She goes the extra mile with up to date shots, vet visits, VWD checks, and AKC information. Sindee cares about where her puppies go....they are her family! The whole process from first contact to picking up our "owner" went extremely well. Sindee is great to work with and sent pictures of our little boy often. You will not regret purchasing your loveable puppy from Sindee! Awesome all the way!!! Awesome breeder! Our Gus is so smart and the cutest Scottie ever. He is certainly a perfect addition to our family. Thanks Sindee!!

Our Laurie Darlin'

My husband and I bought our wonderful Laurie Darlin' from Sindee almost 18 months ago. She is our precious girl! Perfect Scottie attitude and great temperament! Excellent health at all times with no skin problems either. Laurie is also a perfect, beautiful Scottie that conforms to AKC ideals of conformation! Sindee and Dale are great breeders who really care for their pet Scotties!!!! Carolyn Bains

Best little Scottie

I purchased my Sophie from Sindee almost a year ago and I couldn't be happier with this wonderful little dog. She is absolutely the best with the sweetest temperment of any dog I've ever experienced. And smart - I had no idea the intelligence of this breed. She has a soft silky coat that is absolutely jet black. Just beautiful! Needless to say, I'm captivate, I'm also very impressed with the breed and Sindee, the breeder. She is devoted to her dogs and strives to make sure the pups are healthy and represent the best of the breed. Her dogs are family, and I'm sure that is why Sophie is such a sweetie.

Great Breeder! Beautiful dogs!!!

We purchased our female Scottie, Fergie, 2 years ago. She is beautiful black and brindle, with snowflake silver highlights around both eyes! She is loving and gets along well with our male West Highland Terrier, Sparky! She is healthy, weighs approx 18 lbs and full of energy. She is our second Scottie. Fergie loves children, however, I would not let children hit or mistreat your Scottie (or any other dog). An injured or mistreated dog may bite (they are only protecting themselves!) Sindee gets excellent vet care for all her dogs and puppies to insure a healthy puppy. Her dogs are not just a means of making money, they are treasured pets!

A Great Experience

I bought a female Scottie from Sindee.. It was a great experience. She informed me of what to expect from a Scottie, and provided me lots of worthwhile information. My family is ecstatic over this puppy, especially our 8 and 10 year olds. If you are looking for a Scottie, I HIGHLY recommend that you call Sindee. She has quality Scotties, and is a pleasure to work with....
