|Dogs that live with me at Radiant Aussies,
the rest are owned by friends and relatives.
|Australian Shepherds - in smaller sizes
|My dogs are all Australian Shepherds, they are bred with high working and
herding ability. I have chosen to concentrate on producing dogs under 18",
this is one reason why I can not always be sure if one of my pups may go
over that size when full grown. They are beautiful, intelligent, loving and
social dogs with a deep desire to please and to work for their families.
However, they retain strong guarding and herding instincts that enable
them to be great all around workers. I have been involved with Miniature
sized Aussies since 2000. In that time, I have showed almost all of my dogs
to many championships. Look at their individual pages for their
accomplishments. All dogs in my breeding program will be OFA good or
better and CERF clear, plus any other tests available. All pups will be
guaranteed when leaving for their new homes, and most will be sold on a
spay/neuter contract. Only the most exceptional pups will be considered
as show/breeding quality, and then will be placed with the utmost scrutiny.
My first reason to breed any of my females is to better my breeding
program so I have first pick of any litter I breed. This is the reason I can
not be sure what pups will be placed until 8 weeks, when all of the tests are
done. All inquires are welcomed, as I love chatting about this wonderful
little dog. If at all possible, please e-mail me rather then call, as it is much
easier for me to get back to you, then by phone. Thanks!
