Prairie Wynd Atlas Aurelius CGN
Graceful, regal and playful! See full pedigree below
In pursuit of an awesome sire, I combined my CEA non affected dam Prairie Wynds Tawny Night Star with a truly great Grand Champion Show dog Aurealius Coldplay. They produced Prairie Wynd Atlas Aurelius! He is also CEA non affected with both eyes normal, and passes on these important genes to his puppies.
He’s the best sire ever, so out-going and playful, energetic and ready to try anything. He can leap tall buildings in a single bound! Loves the water, loves his puppies, loves attention but not insistent, loves to go camping or travelling or whatever you, his people, are doing. Atlas is an all-around great dog, companion and amazing sire. He’s a pleasure to have in our family.
CEA normal eyes (carrier), DM normal, MDR1 carrier, HIPS normal, ELBOWS normal
“I have had the pleasure of meeting an absolutely gorgeous tricoloured male collie while walking in Crescent Park in South Surrey. Not only was he physically beautiful, his temperament was phenomenal, so calm, friendly and regal. I was blown away that he was only 1.5 years old!
Whenever I meet lovely, well bred dogs I try to find out who their breeder is and his owner gave me your name. I just wanted to pass along a congratulations for a job well done! I haven’t seen a collie like yours in a long time. It makes me happy knowing there are still solid breeders out there and if I ever bump into someone looking for a collie I will send them your way!”
“Dogs like yours are worth celebrating! Based on the male I have seen you are nailing your breeding goals. Majestic is exactly the word I would use to describe him. I’ve seen him a few times now and he always reminds me of a lion. He has such a calm, commanding presence.”

Tawny Night Star the Dam of Atlas
In a effort to improve the genetics of my breeding stock, Tawny was imported from a breeder in the US. She was a ‘much sought after’ Non-Carrier for CEA (Collie Eye Anomaly), a common eye condition of collies and many other breeds.
She produced my current wonderful sire Prairie Wynd Atlas Aurelius!! Atlas is CEA carrier with Normal Eyes and is the best sire ever!
