Buying a puppy from Shady Nook Scottie Farm was an amazing experience. Sindee
and Dale are so nice. It was wonderful to have pictures and updates each week from the time we put a depoist on our puppy
to know how she is growing. Buying over the internet can be a scary experience but working with Sindee and Dale has been a
very plesant one.

We purchased a wheaten scottie from Sindee
and Dale a week ago for our daughter, after an awful experience. We purchased one from Oklahoma, on line, and after 5 days,
it died because it was so sick....pneumonia, worms, ticks and kennel cough. Total disaster!!! Never again will we purchase
one without a guarantee. Sindee guarantees her scotties for a year and I know why!! Our little scottie is in tip top condition,
full of energy, healthy and happy. No worries at all! She truly cares about her scotties and she doesn't breed them over and
over. She gives them a year break, which I am really impressed with. Shady Nook Scottie Farm was a god send to us!!

1000 characters is simply not enough
to share how I feel about Sindee, Dale and Shady Nook. I searched for more than a year to find the right breeder. I went to
IN from Charleston, SC to get my girl, Garbo. Sindee is so caring, committed and organized. She really loves her own scotties,
her girls live in her home and she gives them the special care that is essential for delivery of healthy puppies. The puppies
are touched, held & loved in the weeks between weaning and going to their new homes. When you first contact Sindee and
she tells you she is in this whole experience with you, she means it. She is warm, genuine, and so committed to the breed.
Every puppy I saw when I went to pick Garbo up was beautiful. Garbo's mom and dad were also beautiful. I could not be happier
with my darling puppy.

"5 Star" Experience
What a pleasure to deal with such a professional,
experienced and knowledgeable breeder. Dealing with Sindee and Dale the owners of Shady Nook Kennels was such a pleasure.
We found their website very user friendly with such great pictures of the dogs, bio's on each and current pictures of available
puppies. They keep their website so current that we were surprised to see our new puppies picture on it with a tag line that
she was coming home with us within a day of our purchase. You can put yourself at ease, no puppymill here- Sindee and Dale
adore each and everyone of their scotties and their kennel reflects that. Buyers feel free to contact me if you have any questions,
we can't say enough. This kennel is one of the best we have seen in the Tri-State area. Our new puppy is everything that Shady
Nook said she would be and lots more beyond. Thanks Sindee and Dale, we love our new Scotty.

I would like to highly recommend Sindee
and Dale Hart. I did quite a bit of research until I found Shady Nook Scottie Farm. I grew up in a family who has always loved
their dogs. In the past 8-10 years, various family members have been broken hearted over dogs they have gotten from breeders
who were not as forthright as they should or could have been about unhealthy parents/pups. I do know there are no guarantees,
but after seeing these things happen I wanted to be sure to find a breeder who was sincerely interested in providing happy/healthy
puppies to their clients. Shady Nook also wants to make sure their puppies are going to good homes. It is definitely a 2 way
process. I found Sindee and Dale to be honest, caring and open people. By the way, my new Shady Nook Scottie, MacKenzie has
just finished growling, then pouncing on the strap of my briefcase. She is 11 weeks old...sassy, very happy and friendly and
in to everything. She is perfect.

Larkin, is the most precious pup!!!
I, my family, and my vet could not be more pleased with our
little Larkin bought from Shady Nook. I had never purchased a pup over the internet, but when I decided that we needed a new
Scottie to love, I began researching the internet to try to find a reputable breeder that I could trust had the breed's best
interests at heart. I talked to several breeders, but after talking to Syndee, she was the one that I felt the most comfortable.
I got the impression that I was being checked out by her as much as I was checking her out in our conversation. She e-mailed
4-5 pictures every week of my darling pup-it was very similar to my pregnancy when I got ultrasound pictures. I was impressed
with the setup that Syndee had, and got to meet my dog's birth parents, who were most friendly. I cannot say enough good things
about Shady Nook and would not hesitate to "adopt" another member of my family from her. Thank you so much Shady Nook!

My precious new scotties
I am so fortunate to have found such an excellent scottie
breeder. I just purchased two little adorable scottie. They are brother and sister. Little Addi is the most vocal of the 2
right now. Andy id going to be the cuddler, he loves to be held. They both have really livened up my household in the past
few days. They are getting along very well with my 3 year old scottie. He is acting as their protector , he even jumped out
of bed the first night the puppies came home when he heard Addi make a noise and went to check on her. These two are so wonderful
together I am certainly glad I decided to get them both.

Truly a class act breeder
I purchased a scottie from shady nook in the summer of 09.
I wanted to get a scottie from a breeder who covered all aspects of breeding healthy champion scotties. The time and care
they put into each individual pup is remarkable. Our pup will not be in competitions, although it was very important to get
a scottie with proven genes. Little Gino is a perfect example of how scotties should look and act. Thanks again for covering
all angles and being TRULY A CLASS ACT BREEDER......

Terrific, gracious, friendly, caring . . .
There are so many words we could use to share our experience.
The Harts have a wealth of knowledge about Scotties and take every step to provide top-of-the-line pups. We live in a rural
area and there aren't any Scotty pups. So we turned to the Internet. We were impressed after reading Shady Nooks web site
yet nervous about buying a puppy over the Internet. Finally decided to contact them. Sindee was informative and easy to talk
to. That persuaded us to purchase from them. When the day came, to pick up our puppy, I was still a bit nervous. Were the
Harts really as good as they seemed from the Internet and would the puppy take to us. The simple answer is YES! Everything
on their web site is true! We were shown our puppy’s parents, their documentation, given our puppy’s shot-record,
everything handled professionally and honestly. The Harts of the Shady Nook Scotty Farm are spectacular people, spectacular
breeders, and their Scotties create spectacular puppies. Dugan Delaney is proof!

A Wonderful Place to buy a Scottie Puppy!
I want to start off by saying that I am very skeptical about
purchasing anything online let alone a puppy. When I talked to Sindee I knew right away that I wanted a puppy from her. She
was so sincere and I could just tell that I could trust her. The process of buying a puppy from Shady Nook Scottie Farm is
wonderful. Once you purchase a puppy you are sent pictures and an update every weekend. I loved this because we could see
how our puppy was progressing. When we went to pick up our puppy she was all cleaned up and ready go to her new home. I was
very impressed with how clean the puppy nursery was! I could tell that all of the puppies and their parents are very well
taken care of. We are so impressed with our new puppy! She is very loving and as healthy as can be! I would definitely recommend
Shady Nook Scottie Farm to anyone who is looking to add a new Scottie to their family!

Wisconsin loves Shady Nook Farm!!
We picked up Gus on March 14th and he has captivated us entirely!
Gus has brought a new life and love into this house. Sindee and Dale have been one of the best finds we have had. The information
and contactability are very helpful to us. This is our first Scottie and in Gus we have found the breed we love! Shady Nook
Farm has been a positive and supportive experience that we tell others about at every opportunity. From the excellent website
to the consistent updates on our puppy, we think Shady Nook Farm exceeded all our high expectations of a breeder. They certainly
have set a high standard for others to reach. We are very happy with our Gus and look forward to many happy years with him.(And
possibly more!) Amy and Rick Lohrke

Perfect Puppies - Wonderful Breeders!!
I've had my puppy, Rose, for a week & I couldn't be happier!
Rose is my fifth Scottie, so I understand the Breed & she is everything a little Scottie should be - intelligent, curious,
affectionate, fearless and very healthy! I recommend Shady Nook, without reservation, to anyone who is wanting a Scottie puppy.
They breed for beautiful looks, certainly, (stunning Wheaton or rich Black coats) but it is also immediately apparent when
you meet your puppy that they breed for health & temperament as well. You can tell in just one conversation how much Sindee
& Dale love their dogs & what great care they take with their breeding program & with each parent and puppy. Sindee
is always available to answer your questions & Dale has some thoughtful ideas for what to bring with you when you pick-up
your puppy. Your life will be enriched by a puppy from Shady Nook & from getting to know these wonderful people who are
very knowledgeable Scottie Breeders!!

Shady Nook is wonderful!
I just bought a 8 week old Scottie puppy from Sindee at Shady
Nook Scottie Farm. She was so wonderful through out the process, and now that I have had my Scottie home for a week she is
still available to answer my questions. Sindee is very thorough, her Scottie's are very well taken care of and she wants to
make sure her puppies go to equally loving homes. My Scottie is perfect! Everyone comments on what a beautiful puppy he is
and how healthy and silky his coat looks. I am so glad I found Shady Nook, if we ever get a "friend" for our Scottie I will
get him from Shady Nook and I would recommend this breeder to anyone!

Happy in Minnesota
It has been a week since we picked up our Parker at Shady
Nook Scottie Farm. After losing our Stanley 2 yrs ago, our home felt empty without a Scottie to love. So, being health professionals
& every bit as particular as Sindee, we checked out all the websites. After talking with Sindee & receiving her very
informative e-mails, we decided we would only get a Scottie from this wonderful breeder. We made the 10 hr drive leaving MN’s
frigid 32 degree weather & ending up in glorious 74 degrees at Boonville,IN. It was love at first sight seeing our healthy,
little boy. His eyes are bright, his coat is shiny & thick & he is so full of life. He is a loveable little guy. We
took him to the Vet & he checked out perfectly. He was also the hit of the waiting room. In MN here, you don’t see
too many Scotties…so he is extra special. We couldn’t be happier. Thank you, Sindee & Dale (P.S. They are
both wonderful people!) Debbie & Terry Sanders Byron, MN March 15, 2009

"A Gift Of Hope!"
Sindee and Dale Hart helped to bring "Life" back into my
home. I had to put my Scottie Girl "BELLA" of 13.5 years down in August of 2008. I called Sindee in late September wanting
another Scottie (NOW After many e-mails and telephone calls she helped me to realize that I was NOT ready. I realized right
then and there that THIS is the breeder that I wanted to work with to get my next Scottie.We stayed in close contact and I
am a very proud owner of a 9 week old Scottie Girl named: "Izza-Bella" and I call her "IZZY! Sindee and Dale sent photos weekly
with updates on my puppy. Meeting them the day I picked up IZZY felt like I was visiting "Long-Time Friends." They both made
this experience very positive. Their compassion and loyalty to their Scotties is genuine! Thanks to Sindee, Dale, Lochen,
and Silky I have a beautiful "Furry Girl" that blesses each day of my life abundantly! Thank You Shady Nook For Your Honesty
and Upstanding Reputation! Sincerely, Janet & Izzy in Lansing, IL
