As we have come to know Australian Shepherds over the last few years, we have become firm believers in maintaining the working quality of the breed. Please know that Aussies need a job to be happy. Although the ideal situation is to work livestock, the dogs aren't picky. Becoming involved in obedience training, agility or simply giving them commands and jobs around the house will suffice. These dogs will not be happy sitting in a crate all day while you are away.
Too, if you've never owned an Aussie, or any kind of herding dog (collie, German shepherd, corgi), it's important to remember that these dogs aren't Golden Retrievers or Labradors. They are protective of family and property and are wary of other humans and animals. They need that kind of understanding, and they need to be socialized early.
Please consider these things when thinking about purchasing an Aussie.
Exciting news! A litter of pups was born to Maizie and Chief on Thursday, October 12, 2017.
Their mother, Maizie, is a two-year old blue merle female who is ASCA registered and DNA verified. She weighs 45 pounds. Their father, Chief, is a five-year old red tri male who is also registered with ASCA and AKC and DNA verified. He weighs 55 pounds. Both parents have been checked and cleared for genetic defects. Both Maize and Chief come from the hallmark Australian Shepherd kennels, Las Rocosa and Twin Oaks. We have pedigrees on both parents.
All of the puppies are ASCA eligible, and registration paperwork will be sent home with every puppy.
Every puppy also goes home with its first set of vaccines as well as deworming.
We raise our pups to be well socialized with people as well as other animals. These pictures were taken at four weeks old.
The "solids" (the two red-tri females, and two red-tri males) sell for $800. The red merle male sell for $1,000. We are currently accepting deposits on puppies. We ask for a $250 non-refundable deposit to hold a puppy. We sell all of our pups on a spay/neuter contract.
Red Tri female "Chelsea"
Red Tri female "Ann"
Red merle male "Jackson"
Red Tri male "Dexter"
Red Tri male "Bo"
CHELSEA--Chelsea is a red tri female. She has beautiful copper points and copper legs with white socks. She also has a full white blaze which extends down her back. She's stunning! Like her sister, she's calm and peaceful. Unlike her sister, she's one of the biggest in the litter.
ANN--Ann is the sweetest little thing. She's a red tri female with full white socks and feet and a complete blaze. She's quiet and calm.
JACKSON--Usually we have several merles in a litter, but Jackson is our only merle this time around. He has fabulous merle markings and long white stockings. He also has blue eyes. At four weeks old, he is the most anxious one of the litter, so he will need lots of socializing as a pup!
DEXTER--Dexter is probably our biggest pup, but he has a calm and gentle nature. He has beautiful markings and white feet.
What a great litter of pups we have! Four reds and a red merle. These pups have some of the most striking markings we've had in a litter for a while. Check them out! We're happy to answer any questions.
<--Notice the size difference between Chelsea and Ann? Ann is on the left, and Chelsea is on the right :-)
Bo (left) and Dexter (right)
BO--Bo is a dark red tri male with heavy copper legs and white socks. He looks a lot like his dad, Chief, with red covering his body.
