Australian Shepherds have been a part of our life since 1980. We live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest We strive to breed quality Australian Shepherd 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, mental and physical stimulation, and socialization. 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 have an Aussie join their family. Aussies need exercise, mental stimulation, lots of attention, and brushing is a must. They are intelligent, loyal, protective, very active, and most of all, love their people family. If you are looking for a jogging partner, someone to tag along with you to the beach or on a camping trip, or just a buddy to complement your life, an Aussie may just be the dog you are looking for. Do your research. Make sure you have the time and energy to devote to this particular breed of dog. They are a WORKING dog. Make sure you choose this breed for their breed characteristics and not just for their looks.
We strive to place our puppies in responsible, loving forever homes. A home where they are treated as a valued family member. 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 or help with any concern. We are here for the life of your puppy. You are welcome to come for a 'meet and greet' to meet us and our pack of
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 police 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 no time at all, this man and his amazing little black dog with no tail had our horses back safe in their resident pasture.
Less than a month later, Levi, our first Aussie, came to live with us. Levi blessed our home for 14 years. In that short time she was with us, she kept my daughter, age 9 at the time, from being abducted by two men in the 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.
