At Radiant Aussies we believe if you breed a dog it should only be with the expectation of producing a better dog than the
parents that produced it.  Much thought and research should go into the planning of each particular cross to make sure
that the parents compliment each other.  We have found through our experience and the experience of others that even
with careful planning and consideration of the pedigrees, you will produce dogs that fall into the following categories.
SHOW PUPPY:  This is a puppy which exhibits the qualities looked for in a conformation show dog.  These would include
excellent pedigree, proper structure and movement and free of disqualifying faults as described in the breed standard.  
This puppy is sold as having the potential to be shown and titled in the conformation ring.
BREED/PERFORMANCE PUPPY: This is a puppy which has the potential to develop into a dog of sufficient merit, although
it may or may not title in the show ring, it will have no genetic faults or shortcomings that should prevent it from being
considered as a dog to be bred to a like or better dog.
PET/COMPANION PUPPY:  These pups are sold only as pups to be spayed or neutered.  This pup may or may not have a
disqualifying fault or other shortcoming that would prevent it from being considered for showing and/or breeding.  If there
is a fault it could be simply a color disqualification, or a mild structure fault, neither of which will prevent the puppy from
living a normal and healthy life.  Many times Show/Breed puppies are sold as pets, primarily because there is no need to
further the lines, therefore we the breeder chose not to have them sold as breeding dogs
All puppies will be temperament tested at around 7 weeks and structurally evaluated at 8 weeks.  It is at this time when
we will make our decision as to which pup is right for each prospective buyer, so that each individual puppy will have the
best possible chance of being placed in the proper home.

Dear Rayma and Cori

I just wanted to let you know that we feel so blessed everyday to have Tucker.  You
bred such a beautiful litter that year.  Tucker will be 3 yrs old in November and
everyday we fall more in love with him than the day before.  He has the biggest
heart and willing to please each of us.  Whatever he is doing in the moment is his
favorite thing, such as going for a walk, his favorite thing.  Playing ball, his favorite
thing.  Running an agility course, his favorite thing!.  Playing Frisbee (and he's
great at it), his favorite thing! Cuddling on the couch, his favorite thing!  You get
the idea, whatever you're doing is his favorite thing. He is always by someone's
side, he has a big job with the five of us at home.  He goes from one to the other.  I
can't tell you enough how much we love this dog!  Thank you from the bottom of
our hearts, he radiates with goodness and love.  We love the pictures of the new
puppies and rest assured this litter is probably just as great as Tucker's was
because they have a wonderful breeder who loves what she does and it shows.  

Have a great rest of the summer and if we are in the area we will stop by.  All the
best to the new litter and their new owners and all the best to you are your families.

Be well and God Bless,

Bailey came in to our lives 2 months after we lost our miniature dachshund having had her for
13 years.  It was a tremendous loss as we do not have children.  We didn't want another
dachshund as I didn't think I could have another without comparing her to Lucy.  So - we
researched and decided the mini-aussie would be a good fit.  We went to several breeders, but
the minute we met you and your animals, we knew we had met our match.  Bailey happened to
be available and we came to visit several times before we were lucky enough to take him home.  
Yes, there are challenges to having a puppy, but the rewards are great.

Steve and I just wanted to take a moment to let you know that our little guy Bailey is just a
fabulous dog.  He is now 2 and a half and I'm getting him tested to be a therapy dog (to take to
nursing homes) on Sunday.  He already won his Agility Class last year.  But most of all, he is
an incredibly bright, funny and loving animal.  He knows the difference between five of his
toys.  He loves to run.  Simply loves having puppy playdates, hikes and frisbee fetching.   We're
thinking of submitting a video to David Letterman as he and I love to have little "chats" and
howling sessions.  He's not at all vocal unless he wants to sing with me.  He also happens to be

As you can see, I'm a bit smitten with this animal and have already decided we will need to add
to the pack at some point, (with one of your dogs of course!)

Thank you for being as caring, careful and loving with your dogs as any breeder could possibly

Bailey in Canada, and his sister
Ruby with her new little charge.  
Sadly Ruby's little boy became very
allergic to her, so she came back to
Radiant to find a new home, so sad
for everyone as she was their first
little girl.  Well the best thing
happened.  Bailey's parents were
looking for a new play mate for him.  
Long story short, Bailey and his
sister now enjoy life together.  
Everyone involved couldn't be
happier.         GOD is Good!

Dear Rayma
We continue to be blown away by our Ellie. She is amazing. Each day she brings
us much joy. Bringing her into our family was the best decision we made.
I am reading a book The Other End of the Leash and she talks about looking for a
breeder and you are everything she describes. I am so glad we found you. Thank
you for doing what you do. We are blessed to have found you.
