Oakmoon Collies

Where dreams come true

About Us

My name is Lisa Finnegan.  I married and moved here from New York City six years ago with my husband James, and my Blue Merle collie named Conner.  I have always loved collies.  When I was twelve I told my mother that when I grew up I wanted to be a dog breeder.  She said that wasn't a real career.  So I put that aside and did other things.

My first collie Skipper was a gift when I was fourteen.  He was a sable and white and he was very sweet.  Unfortunately he died young.  My next collie Lucky (Clarion Pied Piper of Brumfis) was a blue merle which introduced me to my favorite colour variation.   When he passed I went four years between dogs since I lived in New York City but finally I couldn't bear to be without a collie and Conner (Clarion Conner's Stormy Sky) came into my life as an 8 week bundle of gray fluff.  I met my husband James in Northern Ireland and three years later Conner and I were crossing the Atlantic for love. 

Once we settled in we bought Wanda (Kynan She's a Diva at Oakmoon) from Kynan Collies as a friend for Conner.  They were the best of friends and we decided that I should make my childhood dream come true.  So we bred Wanda and started Oakmoon Collies.  I hope you enjoy looking at our site and getting to know us.
