I am Jan DiAngelo. Thank you for visiting my web site!

My journey with Shiloh Shepherds began in 1996, with my first Shiloh puppy, Kuro. Kuro Kennel boasted:  the first-ever ISSDC Puppy of the Year; two Breed Champions; a two-time National Select winner; good hips/health; and two beautiful litters with Kuro in their names!

In 2001, I established Miracle Shilohs, and produced the first litter of Miracles.  Later that year, Tella, Sunnie, Cora and I moved from Illinois to Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Since then, we have placed beautiful Shiloh Shepherd puppies in happy homes across Canada and the USA... and even in Japan!

Our Shiloh Shepherds are truly home raised, which means that they share our home with us every day of the year. All of our puppies are whelped, cared for and loved in our home!
 

These events take place in the first few weeks of your puppy's life...

We start acquainting the puppies with the older dogs in our household.

We start giving the puppies "real" food, and begin the weaning process.

Also, we start welcoming human visitors to come over and spend time with the puppies (by appointment only).

          

Weather permitting, the puppies start going outdoors to play.

The entire litter goes to the vet, and each puppy is thoroughly examined: heart, ears, eyes, coat, skin, structure, weight, and testicles. As part of the examination, the puppies receive their first inoculations.

The puppies are temperament tested, so we can determine which puppy is the best "fit" for each new family. Also, around this time, we evaluate each puppy's conformation.

We make the final decision about who is going where.

Your puppy is ready to join your family!
 

For many years, we were able to provide puppies to wonderful families, in Canada and the USA, when the puppies were eight weeks of age. Recently, Canada and the USA imposed the following regulatory changes, which affect all breeders in Canada.

Regulations for Providing Puppies Within Canada

Air Canada Cargo will no longer ship puppies within Canada until they are 12 weeks of age.

West Jet still ships puppies at 8 weeks of age.

This change does not impact puppies that are transported to homes within Canada by car.

Regulations for Providing Puppies to the USA

To be eligible for entry into the USA, either by plane or car, puppies must be 16 weeks of age.

 Prior to entry at 16 weeks, puppies must be vaccinated for rabies at 12 weeks of age.

This regulatory change was enacted by the US Center for Disease Control in August 2014.

Obviously, these new regulations are having an impact on how we do business!
 

Our breedings represent our own diligent efforts to pair the right sires and dams. It is our objective to produce puppies that come as close as possible to epitomizing the Breed Standard in the areas of health, temperament, structure and conformation.
 

Our breeding Shilohs have received passing adult hip certifications (typically with ratings of "Excellent" or "Good") from the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA).

Other Shilohs we use in our breeding program have received passing hip certification with no evidence of degenerative joint disease either from the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) or the Pennsylvania Hip Improvement Program (PennHIP).

We also get at least preliminary elbow certification on all of our Shilohs.
 

Shilohs used in our breeding program also receive, at the very least, these additional clearances:

  Verification of Parentage (DNA) through the Veterinary Genetics Lab at UC Davis
  OFA Cardiac
  Thyroid
  EPI
  Degenerative Myelopathy
 
 
Brucellosis
 

We register our adults and puppies with the Worldwide Shiloh Shepherd Breed Association, LLC (WSSBA).

We are proud members of the International Shiloh Shepherd Dog Club (ISSDC).
