Rain City Shilohs and JnL Poconos Shilohs are pleased to announce the upcoming breeding between our 4 Sisters Ursa Minor aka Ursa ,and Jnl Poconos Ursa Major Sula Bear aka Bear. This will be an all duel plush litter that promises to be bright, funny, sweet, and big with outstanding temperaments

About Bear:

When we found Bear online after a long search, we fell head over heels in love. After calling, texting, hounding, cajoling, begging and emailing his breeder, he was soon on his way from Pennsylvania to California. Bear was the sweetest, most confident, ball of fluff puppy we’d ever seen. Nothing phased him. He was (and is) an affectionate goof and brilliant at working out any puzzle we put in his path, especially if it stood between him and cuddles. Bear sees the world through love-colored glasses. He’s sure everyone wants his hugs and kisses and he’s ready and willing to oblige. He loves to run hard, play ball and chase but then he’s happy to plop on the sofa to watch TV with the family or hang out with Evelyne while she works. He has just the right balance of energy and couch potato to make him a great family companion. It’s interesting to see how differently he approaches people, adjusting his level of energy to their needs. He roughhouses with our grown kids but is extremely gentle with the babies and elderly people in his life. Love dictates everything he does. Oh yes, and Bear loves Ursa to the moon and back.

About Ursa:

In the summer of 2014, we were at a BBQ with other Shiloh Shepherd owners. Someone brought a litter of puppies to the yard to socialize them. When Ursa ran across the lawn, it was love at first sight. Ursa (who at the time was called “Green Girl”) made her way straight into Cat’s arms and hasn’t left them yet. We should have named her “Shadow”. She follows Cat into every room all day long. Ursa is constantly full of joy. She has unending energy. We joke that she is a Labrador in a Shiloh Shepherd body. The older girls adore her and even though most of our friends and family think we were insane for getting a fourth dog, we can’t imagine life without our happy girl.

Welcome!

Welcome to Rain City Shilohs!

We are a Family based breeder located just north of Seattle and nestled in a quiet bedroom community where our four Shiloh Shepherds are part of the family and live in our home with us. We are committed to ethical breeding of these fabulous dogs with emphases on health testing, training, and good temperaments, and believe that when you receive your puppy you become part of the family.

We work and play side by side with our Shiloh Shepherds. Two of our dogs are registered Therapy Dogs and work weekly with children and families, one is a puppy still with hopes of becoming a third Therapy Dog and Chloe, our Grand dam who watches over her house and charges.

Zoe came into our ever-growing family in the spring of 2012. She was a rascally puppy, and quite the gardener! She loved to dig holes and dig up plants. She also loved to eat shoes, Apple laptop charging cables, glasses, and anything we left within her reach. Zoe taught us the importance of patience and the art of remembering that things are just things. We are glad she grew out of those bad habits when she matured. Now she’s a happy, gentle, good-natured, and friendly girl.

She is a spectacular beauty and did very well in the show ring. Zoe is an NSBR National Select Breed Champion, and an IABCA Gold Champion.

Zoe is also a Pet Partners licensed therapy dog. Cat and Zoe visit Ronald McDonald House every Friday evening. Zoe gets petted and hugged so much; she is convinced that Friday evening is her “Spa Day.”
