Frequently Asked Questions
Our focus when breeding our pups is to produce dogs that are family friendly, smart, and great companions. All of the our dogs get along, live with, and love kids and other animals. We also try to provide low-shed pups, but cannot guarantee that is what you will end up with as our Australian Shepherds are not low-shed, but they are very smart!
