The Oneys

Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell Oney of Greenwich, OH were key breeders of the Stodghill-Blankenship bloodline. These photos from the 1980s were shared with me during the course of my research. I was given permission to share these photos with the English shepherd community.

These dogs were originally registered with Tom Stodghill’s Animal Research Foundation (ARF). For each dog, I have submitted a copy of his or her ARF Certificate of Registration to the English Shepherd Club Registry.
