Australian Shepherds

The Aussie's intelligence, playfulness and crazy work drive is what lead us to fall in love with this breed.  After moving to Eastern Oregon, we saw the local cattle ranchers work with their Aussies in close partnership day in and day out.  We saw the breed's unwavering devotion to their humans, and their obedience and loyalty was second to none.  We carefully chose our breeding stock with temperament, beauty and health in mind.  

 

We breed AKC and ASCA Australian Shepherds that adhere to breed standards and strive to provide puppies suitable for ranch work, the show ring, or simply companionship.  

Our puppies are exposed early on to ranch life and socialized with cats, kids, and other dogs.

We are proud members in good standing with the United States Australian Shepherd Association and Australian Shepherd Club of America.  And in 2021 we were evaluated and recognized by the folks at "Good Dog" as having a responsible breeding program and good health testing practices.
