Standard Australian Shepherds
In the fall of 2019 our family lost our beloved Golden Retriever, Beau, to sudden onset canine lymphoma. I knew we wanted a loyal family dog, but one that would also enjoy being around cattle and running around the ranch. After several weeks of research and phone calls to breeders we settled on Australian Shepherds. Gary and I knew this was the breed for us due to the versatility of the breed. Aussies, as Australian Shepherds are affectionately called, were bred to work livestock. However, the Aussie of today is a versatile dog that can serve as a beautiful and intelligent companion or service dog, participate in agility sports, dock-diving, hiking, breed shows, and so much more. They are loyal, highly intelligent and easy to train. Aussies do need a job as they have a fairly high drive to perform tasks and enjoy being active.
In December 2019, our family welcomed Finn into their home. A sweet black-tri pup that stole our heart as soon as his paws crossed over the threshold. Soon after followed Holly, a red merle, and Leia, a blue merle. Our family has learned a lot about the breed and is dedicated to producing quality pups that will make excellent family pets or working livestock dogs. In November 2021 both dams had their first litters. We decided to spay Holly and keep her with us as a beloved companion pet. We kept an outstanding female (Ahsoka) from Leia and Finn's litter and added a gorgeous red merle female (Roxy) to our program for the future. Our Aussies are registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC) and/or with the American Stock Dog Registry (ASDR).
We put a lot of work, dedication, planning and love in raising our Australian Shepherd puppies. We strive to offer pups that fit all budgets. When inquiring about a puppy it is very helpful if we know what your plans will be for your puppy and what your budget is. Our puppies are well-bred and come from working and show lines. We do genetic testing on our adult Aussies. Scroll on down to meet each Aussie and view the available pups.
Check back with us Fall 2023 for information on our next planned litters coming early 2024. We are taking a break from breeding to focus on our coming adult females and supporting our Cannonsnap families and pups.
All of our puppies have found their forever families.
