Occasionally we are looking for a co-own, please contact us for more information.

Our puppy prices vary depending on companion or show/breed evaluation. Deposit of $250 is non-refundable but we are willing to transfer it to the next litter should we not have a match in this one.  Puppies are available in the order of deposits received. Please be prepared to answer questions so we may best match a pup to your request and lifestyle. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.  Breeder reserves the right to first choice of all litters. Our pups are registered with AKC.

See expected litters below!!

Puppies will have had their tails docked and dew claws removed, be on a on a worming schedule, will have age appropriate  vaccinations, micro-chipped and started on crate and potty training. The puppies will have lots of travel time, been exposed to children, traveled to homes of friends and family, handled by strangers, exposed to other dogs, cats. etc.... We try to familiarize them with many new and different sounds, sites and experiences as they grow up. Pups will come with a health guarantee and puppy packet. All pups are sold as companion only and must be spayed or neutered unless other arrangements have been made. Pups will be AKC, MASCA &/or ASA registered. We are taking most of our dogs to AKC as Miniature American Shepherds.

***Pending - A puppy that is being evaluated for show/breed, this puppy could become AVAILABLE at 8-10 weeks. A deposit may also be received pending availability (Interested parties should inquire).

We generally evaluate pups at 8 weeks for personality and structure/conformation, pending results, a pup(s) may be retained or placed in co-own or show home.  We are very selective in retaining pups for our program as we are striving to maintain the integrity of the breed and still have great personalities. All puppies are quality individuals but some just have the stronger traits needed to improve our program. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Puppies are placed by evaluating their personalities and matched to their new families. We will make every attempt to offer a pup to you that matches your color request and preference for a male of female. Sometimes this is just not possible, a new litter is always a surprise as we never know what we will have for coat or eye color, boy or girl until arrival. Our main concern is that both you and your puppy are happy!

We have started implementing a large portion of the "Puppy Culture Program" with our litters to better prepare them for their new homes. Please click on the link for more information. This program makes a huge difference in teaching them to accept different life situations, assists with socialization, grooming and manners. The puppies are handled multiple times daily, exposed to new objects, floor surfaces and noises. We highly recommend that you enroll your new puppy in obedience classes to have the most success for a great placement. While we have been raising Mini Aussies for several years, using Puppy Culture in conjunction with some practices we alreay have in place, makes a huge difference having a well adjusted pup.

Please be sure to review information on the "Aussie Info" page! Thank you!

Fury ( Quail Ridge Fast N Furyous)  and Beau (AKC CH Quail Ridge Kicinauss Beaucoup Big Bucks ) 

are expecting the end of February!!

Fury is unshown but has great structure with an awesome personality!

She doesn't know a stranger and tends to pass that trait in her pups.

Beau has been minimally shown and is only 2 points away from his GCH.

 He is very athletic and has a friendly, want to please attitude.

This should be a very nice cross with all colors possible.
