1 adult ready to go now and puppies ready to go soon (Updated 2-18-24)
I love breeding the toy sized Australian Shepherd. They are so loving and easy to train. Each one looks so different- blue merle, red merle, black tri and red tri. My focus is the toy aussie ranging from 10-14 inches and averaging 8-14 lbs. Puppies are raised in our home as pets and with much love. We are located in Harrison, Ohio. Check out pups for sale and upcoming litters on the PUPPIES page.
I have been very lucky to obtain dogs from many blood lines. All have had genetic testing and are bred to prevent genetic diseases.
The puppies are looking for their loving people to share a life with. I work hard to make the right match with puppies and their people. They just want to be loved and to give love! They are great with kids. They are eager to learn.
Our dogs are part of the family. Puppies are raised in our home and lovingly cared for by our family. They are held and pampered and spoiled. It is important to limit their exposure to disease, so we limit handling to the family. We want to do everything we can to ensure that all of our puppies go home healthy. We can send many pictures and videos.
All of our dogs are tested and most of our dogs have tested clear for entire panel. A couple are unaffected carriers having just one gene. Puppies that are of breeding quality also be tested to see if they are carriers. Results take about 2 weeks from Paw Prints genetics.
These are removed at 3-5 days to meet with breed standards. However, puppies that are not of show quality (mismarks) may have tails left on for those wanting tails.
DHPP is given at 7 weeks. Past 8 weeks will continue the vet recommended vaccine schedule. All are dewormed with pyrantel pamoate at 2, 4, 6 and 8 weeks. Heartworm medicine given at 6 weeks. Stool testing performed at 7 weeks.
Puppies get started on solids at 4 weeks and are on regular puppy chow by 8 weeks. We currently use Purina Pro Plan puppy small breed. 8 weeks is the typical age to go home. A vet exam is performed at 7 weeks to ensure good health before they travel.
Puppies start litter box training at 4 weeks so they will be ready to start house training when they go home. Puppies will also be accustomed to sleeping in crates although not alone or with door closed.
