A Breeder Who Really Cares For Every Single Puppy
I had the daunting task of trying to find a breeder over the internet, but after one phone conversation
with Sindee Hart, I knew she would be an excellent choice. She is very knowledgable and breeds solely Scotties. She tests
for genetic diseases and takes excellent care of all of her new puppies. She doesn't breed her dogs constantly either. The
dogs have excellent personalities and are excellent with children. I couldn't imagine going to another breeder!

A Scottish Terrier breeder with heart
Sindee and Dale impressed me with there dedication to the breed, and also insuring that their puppies
are provided to good quality homes. Communication weekly from the point the litter was born up to the point I picked my new
best friend up from them. By the time I had actually held the pup I felt like I knew him already. They provide a great service
and really make every effort to insure the quality of their pups and the stability of the breed from their sires and dames.
If and when I am looking for another Scottie pup I will be seeking out Shady Nook first and foremost. A total pleasure!

A WONDERFUL BREEDER OF GORGEOUS PUPPIES!
I was a little hesitant to purchase a puppy over the internet, and then I called Sindee at Shady
Nook Scottie Farm. I could tell from my very first conversation with her that she was a caring, careful breeder who made every
effort to breed healthy, happy, top of the line dogs. So, luckily, we got our name on the list for the next litter of puppies.
They were born a few weeks later, and Sindee sent us pictures of all of the puppies as well as her opinion of which puppy
was the personality type we were looking for. After we chose him from the pictures, she sent us weekly photos and emails on
how he was doing, and we recently made the trip and picked up our blue-black male Scottie at Shady Nook. He is absolutely
wonderful and exactly what we wanted! We highly recommend Sindee and Dale as breeders, and I would never hesitate to purchase
a puppy from them; either on-line or in person. Thanks, Sindee and Dale, our little guy is fabulous!

Look no further, the Shady Nook scottie farm is an excellent choice if you're looking for a healthy,
happy, well raised companion. Even if you don't live in their area, they are able to provide, one way or another, safe, reliable
transport for your scottie. They are easy to get a hold of, which is a plus. Many scottie breeders I had called before this
didn't even bother to reply to my messages I left on their answering machine. They will answer any questions you may have,
and are very kind and polite. You can tell from the get go that they aren't simply looking to make a profit. They ensure that
both the owner, and the puppy will be happy. Don't take my word for it, call them up and find out how informative and helpful

Our experience with Sindee and Dale of Shady Nook Scottie Farm has been outstanding! From the moment
we found their ad in a dog magazine, all our phone calls and emails we have had nothing but the very best experience leading
to the successful purchase of Licorice. I have had a Scottie at my side for 50 years, thus know them very well. This is an
exceptional happy, healthy puppy. The love and care given to each puppy not to mention the understanding and commitment Sindee
& Dale have to the breed is a sign of the true professional breeder. From purchasing via the internet, flying to New York,
everything has been a class act. Sindee and Dale have calmed our fears and concerns during those early days and still remain
in touch to follow up on how we are doing. Please feel free to email me regarding your potential purchase of a Shady Nook
Scottie, I am delighted to share our success story and help calm any concerns you may have.

Miles for Smiles
I lost my 13 year old scottie to cancer in March, 2007. In my search for another scottie,
I came across Shady Nook Farm. I did not get a pup from her at that time because we got a local rescue scottie and another
from a breeder closer to us( Shady Nook Farm is 800 miles away). Sindee, the owner, was kind enough to understand and we quickly
became email buddies, sharing pictures and updates on the pups. We even spoke on the phone a few times. Last week our rescue
got lose, was hit by a car and died. Sindee was one of the first people I called. We made arrangements to drive out to IN
and picked up a beautiful, healthy, well socialized female wheaten pup. I was so happy to finally met Sindee and see her Farm.
And I can't praise her enough for the kindness & concern she showed towards me. You can image the care she gives to her
own, this is her labor of love and it shows in the wellbred dogs that she is raising. Shady Nook Farm is by all means the
place to get an addition to your family!

A delightful experience
Shady Nook Scottie Farm....Sindee and Dale Hart....a memorable experience for me. Upon visiting
with Sindee and Dale Hart, I was impressed first of all by their warm greeting and the invitation to see all of their dogs....including
seven happy, healthy, romping little 7 week old "celebrity" puppies. Their willingness to spend over an hour with me sharing
information, knowledge, and assurance of their continuing support should I make the decision to purchase one of these adorable
puppies gave me the confidence they would be there for me. I would highly recommend the Shady Nook Scottie Farm to anyone
seeking a Scottish Terrier. Sindee and Dale Hart are honest, hard working, southern Indiana natives with a breadth of experience
in raising Scottish Terriers. I did return to purchase one of their puppies and they have been there for me when I needed
them, always cheerful welcoming, warm, confident.

wonderful puppies from Shady Nook Scottie Farm
I purchased a puppy recently from Shady Nook Scottie Farm. The owners truly care about their puppies.
They interview the potential owners to determine if the puppy is going to go to a good home. They have kept in touch with
me to see how the puppy is getting along with my other scotties. I would recommend Shady Nook Scottie Farm to anyone that
is interested in purchasing a puppy. They also made it very easy for me to receive my puppy. It was too hot to fly the puppy
to TX so Brody was shipped via a van to TX. They have their puppies best interest at heart.

What delightful people Sindee and Dale are!DO NOT be afraid to buy a puppy over the internet from
them!I searched the internet for a Scottie and happened upon Shady Nook,and am so glad that I did.Shady Nook is not a puppy
mill, these dogs and puppies are part of their family and treated as pets not just breeders,there are no cages filled with
dogs that never get attention.We had Maggie to her required vet check on 8/12/08 and the vet said that she was in perfect
health and that she was the most perfect scottie he has seen in quite a while,of course this was after everyone had to oh
and ah over her.When I am ready for a scottie myself I will go to no one but Sindee and Dale at Shady Nook Scottie farm.They
care about their little four legged friends and about the humans that purchase the puppies.Sindee is a great person to buy
a puppy from, after talking with her you will know why.Thanks Sindee! Vicki,Indianapolis,Indiana

Bringing Paisley to PA
We traveled over 1,000 miles round trip to get our little Scottie from Shady Nook Scottie farm
3 weeks ago. From the beginning, Sindee was most helpful in explaining everything from the purchasing process to places good
to eat and stay overnight the day before picking her up. We were given plenty of advice, a nice "care package" to get us started,
and were able to meet Paisley's mom and dad also. Both Sindee and her husband really care about the puppies that they breed
and sell...it was obvious from the the very first encounter. Our pup is settling in very well, and she has become a very special
part of our family already. Thanks again... for giving us our beautiful pet! The Rateau Family Moon Twp., PA

Our Scottie Is An Absolute Joy!
We have wanted a Scottie for years, but we were leery of puppy-mills. When we found Shady Nook
Farm, we knew we had a winner. Dale and Sindee Hart have been a pleasure to work with in acquiring our wonderful laddie, MacDuff.
The Harts have sent us photos of MacDuff since he was new-born. We loved him the moment we saw his picture, 9 weeks before
we received him at the Houston airport. The air shipment from Indiana to Houston, because of the airline, had problems, but
the Harts quickly and professionally took care of them. Our MacDuff arrived hale and hearty, an assertive, bouncing, friendly
bundle of black/brindle joy. We cannot thank the Harts for their caring and professional attitude. We heartily recommend this
breeder without reservation. They love their Scotties- and the results show. David and JoAnn Deatkine.

The Hart family has to be the most organized, loving, safe, clean and conscienous Scottie breeder
in the country. Our "Mac" is awesome!! You can tell he has been WELL bred and cared for. Sindee has provided him (and others
that I noticed) a healthy environment and a great start with our family. We are so fortunate to have found Shady Nook Farm.
We have already mentioned to her of our plans to return for another Scottie. "Mac" is calm, loving, playful and has added
new spark to our older scottie, Lassie (who needed a play friend). She provides you with much more than you would ever expect
when adopting one of her puppies. I don't believe you could find a better Scottie breeder.
