Frequently Asked Questions

FACILITIES and Care are INSPECTED/approved by VET.

Parents are genetically tested for PRA, MDR1 & HC. and working on full panel testing for males to ensure puppies have no genetic issues if testing developed to prevent it.

Adults are vet checked for TOTAL breeding soundness (not just hips & eyes) through our vet checks hips & eyes.. We keep a lot of our own breeding to be able to monitor how they grow, develop and mature. Breeding Adults are neutered/spayed & petted out if they produce puppies that do not have “family” dispositions or are not genetically sound. or we find out there are issues in the “lines.”

Puppies have their appropriate vet recommended shots & worming and are vet checked before leaving. Puppies have 2 yr genetic guarantee on hips/eyes. Please read purchase agreement prior to purchasing. Please note that the testing of hips/eyes on parents only tells you the dog tested is OK, does NOT tell you the puppies will be OK, the genetics for these problems are recessive and “multi-genetic” and in our opinion, these are not the only genetic issues that should be watched for. Also current research shows Nutrition enutero, puppy and Adult and exercise are significant  to Joint & hip health. 

 Only monitoring the offspring for generations can tell if the genes/problems exist.


Dogs/puppies are being registered with ASDR ( will provide paperwork for NSDR for breeders if desired.


We can Ship within USDA guidelines or Pet nanny.


Pet nanny starts at $450 – this is their cost and is total – it is in cabin care and reccomended for small toys. but need to know week/two in advance as they are booked.  some nannies require $x depending on distance and a booked/paid round trip ticket due to airline cancellations, and difficulties.. 


Puppies will have their vaccinations and deworming according to age ( 2shots & 3+dewormings at 9wks) and be vet checked healthy prior to leaving


We estimate mature size (i.e. TOY or MINI) based on the size of parents and of the puppy at 4-6wks- and previous puppies that have matured from this cross/parents (toy to toy mating can get “throwback” too small mini” .. but cannot guarantee mature size, but they should mature close.. we have been pretty accurate so far.


Pet price, the buyer agrees with purchase that the puppy is spayed/neutered and not used for breeding of any kind – even “family pets” or crossbred, nor can the puppy be hardship (without pedigree) registered for breeding – we hold papers until we receive written proof from vet of spay/neuter.

Breeder price – does not require puppy to be spayed/neutered, We have puppy vet checked for proper bite & both testicles descended if male, but do not represent that the puppy is “BREEDER QUALITY” or “Show quality”.. this “standard/quality” changes with the whims of the people that set them and we don’t even know who they are, what is breed or show standard today can change tomorrow.. .. Nor does this guarantee that the puppy will breed in the future.


We ask for a $500 Holding FEE via PayPal or bank transfer (Zellepay network). The balance to 1/2 of the purchase price of puppy to be sent immediately via bank transfer – Zelle network . balance & shipping paid via bank transfer as soon as puppy is vet checked. We will not ship or release a puppy until FUNDS have cleared our bank.

We guarantee the Aussie puppy to be healthy,  pass vet check prior to going home- if does not pass for a minor issue that can be treated we will treat at our expense & revet for shipping within 2 weeks and reschedule shipping. (things happen, puppies can have reactions to shots/worming or change in temp). If the puppy does not pass due to more serious issue the deposit can be transferred to another puppy or refunded. No refunds because markings/eye color aren’t as perfect, or you found cheaper, or older, ready to ship puppy elsewhere.

If you want to pay entirely by PayPal we ask for 3% PayPal fee added and will send you an invoice that states no chargebacks due to recent fraud with Paypal. .
