Prices.... we offer a huge range of prices on our pups. We understand that some pups may be out of your price range and that is why we offer wide range of prices, plus you have 8 weeks to pay off your pup! Prices on our pups vary based on size, parents, color, gender pedigree and more.
Quality..... we offer a variety of quality pups. Even out of our top pairs, only a select few make the cut to stay back as breeders/show dogs/parents... that's not to say we wont have some amazing looking kiddos! We have some mommas who will never make it to the show ring, but are kept based on temperament, agility, or working ability. Not every litter we breed will a phenomenal show protect. That being said, you aren't going to get a phenomenal show dog or breeding dog for a pet budget. But I can guarantee you, you will get an amazing family member who will love you unconditionally:)
Testing...….all of our dogs are tested. All of our pups come with a 2 year health guarantee and if anything happens to your pup, we are right there to help you out. With that being said- yes, some of our parents are carriers for certain things- carriers- NOT AFFECTED. We know who we can and cant breed together to get amazing litters with healthy puppies. With that being said- I'm not going to throw the baby out with the bath water just because they are a carrier for this or that. Why throw that away just because of a carrier gene? As far as a pet, there should be no worry about a single copy carrier for several aussie genes.
MALE VS FEMALE... “As a general rule, there are no major personality differences between male and female. Both males and females make great companions and family members. Many people believe that female dogs make better pets. Most calls for a puppy have people wanting a "sweet little girl". They don't think females display alpha behavior like "marking" and/or "humping". They believe that they are docile and attentive and do not participate in fighting for dominance. This couldn't be further from the truth. In the dog pack makeup, females usually rule the roost, determine pecking order and compete to maintain and/or alter that order. The females are, as a result, more independent, stubborn and territorial than their male counterparts. Most fights will usually break out between two females.
Males on the other hand are usually more affectionate, exuberant, attentive and more desiring of attention. They are very attached to their people. They also tend to be more steadfast, reliable and less moody. They are more outgoing, more accepting of other pets, playful for more years and take quicker to children. Most boys are easily motivated by food and praise and are so eager to please that training is easy. However, males can be more easily distracted during training because of their playful nature. No matter what age, he is more likely to act silly and more puppy-like, always wanting to play games. Boys are fun loving until the day they die. Females tend to be more reserved or dignified as they age. Neutered males rarely exhibit undesirable secondary behavior such as "humping" or "marking" and lifting of legs. Once the testosterone levels recede after neutering, most of these behaviors (if they ever existed) will disappear. Boys who are neutered early often don't ever raise their leg to urinate. While females will usually come to you for attention, when she’s had enough she will move away. Boys are always waiting for your attention and stay closer at hand.
Keep an open mind when selecting your puppy. Don't close the door on a puppy because of preconceived notions of it's gender; you may be missing out on a great companion! Either way you go, male or female, if it's a Aussie you can't go wrong. Just keep in mind, every dog, male or female has it's own personality and is unique in every way.
So, before you decide on that age old dilemma of male or female, there are many things to think about. Which ever gender you choose, having an Australian Shepherd is a wonderful addition to your family”
Every pup goes home on heartworm prevention, I use Advantage Multi. Here is more info on it:

Advantage Multi for Dogs also kills adult fleas through contact, meaning they dont have to bite your dog to die. Additionally, the product treats flea infestations as well as 3 common intestinal parasites that infect and harm dogs (roundworms, hookworms, and whipworms). It also treats a very itchy skin mite called sarcoptes, which can infect people.
Miniature vs. Toy vs. Standard Aussie Dog Breed
If you're hankering for a handsome Australian shepherd but want a smaller dog, no problem.
These versatile canines come in standard, miniature and toy sizes. No matter the size, these dogs all share the same qualities.
Standard Australian Shepherd
Male Australian shepherds mature between 20 to 23 inches tall at the shoulder, with females standing between 18 to 21 inches high. Males weigh between 50 and 65 pounds, while females range between 40 to 55 pounds.
Miniature Australian Shepherd
At maturity, miniature Australian shepherds range between 15 to 18 inches tall at the shoulder, weighing between 25 to 40 pounds. Males are larger than females. Other than size, the miniature Australian shepherd looks exactly like the standard version. The breed was created by mating standard Aussies maturing on the small size to each other, until the resulting puppies remained true to size and type.
Toy Australian Shepherd
The toy is the smallest version of the Aussie, created by a similar breeding-down process. Toy Australian shepherds stand between 10 and 14 inches tall at the shoulder when full-grown, weighing between 12 and 23 lbs, depending on bone structure and size. Although he's small, the toy Aussie possesses all the herding instincts of his larger relatives. Unlike some other small dogs, who are relatively fragile, he's a good choice as a child's companion and gets along with other animals.
Do you guarantee the adult size of the pup?
Most definitely not! I wish I could see into the future, but just like with children you can't predict adult height/weight. The best I can do is provide the heights and weights of the parents.
