We are a small kennel currently based in Bringelly, Sydney, Australia.
My involvement with this amazing breed began in 1989 receiving TRIMEL Classic Jak for my birthday from a very special friend. "Jak" was an amazing intelligent dog with a beautiful gentle nature, certainly no ordinary border collie.
I developed an interest in showing dogs & a year later along came Australian Champion TRIMEL Lord Thomas.
INGENUE's foundation bitch was BORDERHEATH Molly Mcgee (1992 - 2003) who produced beautiful puppies including; Aust Gr Ch INGENUE Little Mo (1995 - 2007), Aust. Ch INGENUE Lady Jemma (1997 - 2010) & INGENUE Illusion (2001-2009).
Jemma's involvement with INGENUE began in March 2010 in asking to use "Casey" (INGENUE Just Me) for Junior Handlers, was invited to handle "Casey" again at the next show.
In February, 2011 TERRABELLA Cometogether "Abbey" joined the Ingenue Team & Jemma continued to handle the INGENUE team untiil she turned 16 in 2013.
In 2013 Jorja Cummings, an amazing young handler (of course whilst I am biased, I am not prone to exaggeration) took the leads of the INGENUE Team enjoying success at Group & Show levels with "Roxy", "Maeve" & the youngest addition "Molly". Jorja perservered training the 2 youngsters with love, patience & skill.
INGENUE continue to enjoy success in show rings around NSW.
Our aim is to breed gentle, intelligent, beautiful Border Collies that are considered members of the family.
Thank to everyone who has helped us along the way & to all the lovely families who own & love an INGENUE Border Collie.
