The Journey of Life is much
sweeter when traveled
with a dog!
Aussies have been a part of our life since 1980. We strive to breed quality puppies that are structurally correct, have great temperaments, with correct Aussie type adhering to the Aussie breed standard. Health, temperament and longevity are our main goals in our breeding program. We strive to produce a puppy that will enhance the lives of the families they go to for years to come. We are devoted to giving our puppies the very best start as possible, making them a success with their new families. In return, we expect only the best for them from their new families. The first 8-9 weeks, our puppies get the very best of care from the best nutrition, hands on daily care, mental and physical stimulation, and socialization. We perform extensive Genetic Testing on all of our adults. Our Aussies are all family members, sleep in the house and all have a turn coming to work with us. Most of our vacations are planned around some sort of dog event. We never have company over unless they are true dog people and understand what life is like when you share your life with our herd of Aussies. Puppies are home raised in our living room, allowing them to experience every day family life with all of our daily activities and noises.
This special breed of dog is not for everyone. We encourage families to research this breed prior to making a commitment to bring an Aussie into their home. We love to show our dogs, but you do not have to, to be able to have one of our beautiful puppies join your family. They are intelligent, loyal, protective, very active, and most of all, love their people family. We want our puppies to go to responsible, loving forever homes. If at anytime you cannot keep your Aussie for any reason, they are welcome to come back to live with us. We are always here to answer any questions about our puppies, our dogs, or the Aussie breed in general.
In the summer of 1980, our horses escaped their resident pasture. They ended up running free on Interstate 80, just a few miles west of Reno, Nevada. The interstate was closed for 45 minutes, while State Patrol and a few on lookers tried with no success to round up these frantic horses. Finally, a man with a little black dog in the back of his pickup truck arrived from out of nowhere! In a matter of minutes, this man and his amazing little black dog with no tail had our horses back safe in their pasture.
Less than a month later, Levi, our first Aussie, came to live with us. Levi blessed our home for 14 years. In the short time she was with us, she kept my daughter, age 9 at the time, from being abducted by two men in front of our home. A few years later, while playing with my daughter at a park a short distance from our home, she kept my daughter safe from some teenage boys that were up to some sort of 'foul play'. Levi was truly a blessing and she will live on in our hearts.
