|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!
| How we place our puppies!
All of our puppies are raised in our home and handled from birth. We totally
socialize them with all ages, and to as many environmental stimuli that we can. I
have six grand children ranging from 12 to 21 years that are a great help to us.
At this time we get $1200 for pet puppies. If a pup is show quality and sold as a
pet, it is sold for the pet price. We would appreciate that you do not ask us to
lower the price, as we feel you are getting much more for your money then if you
were to buy from a Puppy Store. Our pups are guaranteed for life and have all
health tests and first shots given.
I'm afraid we sell our pups not by color or sex, but as to where they will fit into
someone's home and lifestyle the best.
We temperament test the pups at 7 weeks and do a structural test and eye exam
at 8 weeks. This determines where a puppy is most suited. If we have a high
drive pup, for example, it would have to go where it would be doing agility or
herding, not in a family setting that wants a relatively quiet pup.
We primarily breed first for our own betterment of the breed, so if we have a
show quality pup at 8 weeks that passes all it's tests, we may keep it in our
I think you can see how we cannot promise any one pup, to any particular person,
at an early age.
We will be happy to add anyone to a list to see if, after all is said and done, we
have something suitable for your lifestyle.
Thank you for your interest in our dogs.
