Which Puppy is Right for You?

We take great pride in our puppies and carefully screen all potential homes. Purchasing an Aussie is usually a 12-15 year commitment. As a responsible breeder, we feel it is very important to place each puppy in the right home.


Each puppy's placement is determined according to the individual puppy's personality and the role it will play in its new family. We carefully evaluate each puppy's temperament as it is growing to make this determination.



We do not allow buyers to choose which puppy they would like from the litter, as this often results in a poor match between dog and owner. It is our goal for the dog to have a happy, lifetime home with equally happy owners.



While buyers might want to limit the sex and color puppy they would like to have, we do not encourage this. Buyers who do so must be aware that this will limit their chances of getting a puppy from a specific litter, because a puppy of that color and sex in the litter might not be the best match for them or might not even be produced. 



Please understand that the careful breeding of puppies on a limited basis is not a made-to-order business in regards to color, sex, temperament, or quality (show or companion).



When matching puppies with owners, we try to be as expedient as possible in the decision making process, but we do not begin making final decisions about which homes individual puppies go to until after 6-8 weeks of age when overall health, temperament, structure, and movement can be clearly evaluated. Puppies do not leave for their new homes until after 8-10 weeks. 

We do ask that each puppy buyer complete a comprehensive wish list that includes the comments from all adult family members; we always enjoy children’s wishes too. We request at least one in-depth conversation with each adult in the household. We refer to your wish list and our conversations often when selecting the best pup for your family.



We love our dogs and want you to love them too.
