Lucky comes from a line of unregistered purebred English shepherds that were bred and sold by Fairmont Kennels.  Fairmont was owned by Mildred Schoemann of Cedar Falls, Iowa over the last 50 years or so.  Over the past 5 years, I have gotten around a dozen calls from people looking for dogs from Mrs. Schoemann.  She had quit breeding and her repeat customers from the last half of a century were looking for her dogs.  The story of this line is why it is important to register the dogs.  Because the dogs were unregistered, we can't find them now.  Lucky fell into our lap after years of hearing about these wonderful dogs.  When I met her, I knew that this was something worth maintaining!  So, Lucky lives with us and over the generations her progeny will be stepped into the English shepherd registered genepool. We don't know which English shepherds Lucky comes from, but her family was always selected and sold as English shepherds.

For more on the Schoemann dogs, see the Fairmount Farms Flyer that was distributed in the 1970s and 1980s.

    Lucky was bred by Linda Mitchell of Sugar Creek, Ohio.  Linda purchased Lucky's dam from Mildred Schoemann.  She is named Lucky because her dam, Lady, finally became pregnant with her first litter at age 11.  Lady had three pups and Lucky, the last, was born by C-section.  She's a little miracle!
