When we have pups
available we make sure the information is updated regularly
Interested puppy buyers, please note: Although we will
always keep in mind the colour preference of our puppy buyers we DO NOT
place our pups in homes based solely on colour choice. We evaluate the
pups from day one and puppies are placed based on a wide variety of things
including temperament, natural instinct, and suitability. If you are
interested in a puppy from an upcoming litter we recommend you complete our
questionnaire and speak with us (via phone, e-mail or in person) after that.
When we have a litter planned we will notify you and we request a deposit
from people interested in a pup. A deposit ensures ONLY that you will
be considered as a prospective home and we reserve the right to choose not
to place a puppy in a prospective home at any time or for any reason.
Our first consideration is the safety and well-being of our puppies, from
the day they are conceived until the day (hopefully long in the future) when
they pass on.
Please note, we DO NOT breed so called "minis" and ask that you read the
following regarding 'mini' Aussies...
Recently there has been a rise in the movement to
breed so called “miniature”, and sadly, even a “toy” version of the Australian
Neither of these are recognized by any of the
official Australian Shepherd clubs/organizations. The Australian Shepherd
Club of America (ASCA), the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC), the American
Kennel Club (AKC), nor the United States Australian Shepherd Association,
Inc. (USASA), recognize nor register these dogs. The dogs are only
recognized by their own breed clubs which have been formed since they
were denied recognition by the above clubs. They are NOT a 'variety'
of the true Australian Shepherd, they are a totally separate breed.
We do not breed "mini's", will not allow our males to be
used to breed to a "mini" and will not recommend a breeder to you because
we personally do not support the purposeful breeding of "miniature” or
“toy” dogs that are then passed off as Australian Shepherds.
We breed our Aussies to the ASCA and CKC
recognized standards of excellence. These clubs require all of their
members to abide by their rules and regulations and their Code of Ethics,
and to be ever vigilant in the preservation and protection of the true

Treat Me Kindly
Treat me kindly, my
beloved friend, For no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me.
Do not break my spirit
with a stick, For though I should lick your hand between blows, your patience and
understanding will more quickly teach me the things you would have me learn.
Speak to me often, For
your voice is the world's sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail when your footsteps fall upon my ears.
Please take me inside when
it is cold and wet, For I am a domesticated animal, no longer accustomed to the bitter elements. I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth.
Keep my pan filled with
water, for I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst. Feed me clean food that I may stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side, and stand ready, willing and able to protect you with
my life, should your life be in danger.
And, my friend, when I am
very old, and I no longer enjoy good health, hearing and good sight, do not make heroic efforts to keep me going.
I am not having fun.
Please see that my trusting life is taken gently. I shall leave this earth knowing with the last breath I drew, that my fate was always safest in your hand.
