When we breed a litter it is well planned and researched and with the intent of keeping something for
ourselves,  thus puppies are not assigned in first few weeks since true evaluation cannot be done before 7
weeks.  Plus the temperament and personalities are not known in the first few weeks, to make sure puppies are
placed in the proper environment/homes.
Both Pet/Companion and Show/Breeding puppies are physically and mentally sound with temperament being a
primary focus in our breeding program.  The differences between the Pet/Companion and Show/Breeding
puppies are based on the Australian Shepherd Breed Standard.  Only puppies determined to contribute to the
betterment of the Breed will be placed as Show/Breeding Quality.  Many times show quality pups will be placed
in Pet / Companion homes as that may be the best situation for puppy and family.  Pet/Companion puppies are
sold on a limited registration, to be spayed /neutered with no offspring produced by them eligible for registration
with either ASCA or AKC.  Puppies will not be sold to breeding only homes, but serious competition homes with
possible breeding intentions after health/genetic testing is done and hopefully proven in  conformation and /or
performance venues.
We breed only OFA certified  and Eyes cleared by a canine opthamologist breeding stock with many of the
animals we utilize , being CHIC certified dogs (Canine Health Information Center) that have passing ratings  
for hips, elbows, and eyes..  Puppies eyes are cleared at 7 weeks by a canine opthamologist before going to
their new homes.  Puppies are born and raised in our home and fed a natural/raw diet like the rest of our dogs.  
Any puppy that will be going to a kibble fed home will be fed raw and will be transitioned just before leaving.  
We take socialization very seriously and make sure  that puppies get a great start meeting new people, animals,
sights, sounds and surfaces.
We stand behind any puppy that we breed at any time in their life.  And sell them on normal health guarantees
explained fully in our contract.  When you contact us about a litter we will give general information in email but
pricing and policies will need to be discussed via phone call or in person.
RESERVATIONS:  When a reservation for a puppy is placed, a $200.00
non-refundable deposit is required, which will be deducted from the purchase
price of the dog.  No puppy will be held without a deposit.  Should a breeding
not produce the specific type,(show/breeding or pet/companion) color, or sex
reserved, the buyer may use the deposit toward a different , unspoken-for
puppy from the same litter,OR roll the deposit over to another litter.  We
reserve the right to cancel this contract for any reason and refund the deposit
at any time and the contract will be null and void.  These are the only reasons
the deposit will be refunded.  Purchasing a puppy from another breeder is not
a viable reason.  To have a deposit contract emailed to you
