Australian Shepherds are very versitile canines, no matter what their size. Their intelligence is a strong feature, coupled with their beauty and ability to love their owners.
From the very beginning, as pups. It is vital to nurture an "Aussie's" socialization to people, animals and other canines. This cannot be achieved by raising them in cages, kennels or cramped living quarters. Our dogs and puppies are made part of our family. They are cared for and played with by everyone in our family. We strive to place each and every one of them in a loving and safe home. Their future is in our hands.... and we take that issue very seriously. Thanks for stopping by, and contact us with any questions you may have.
