Meet Our Aussies

Let me introduce you to our fur babies. Pedigrees for each parent are available upon request.

Our Girls:

KIODA: Blue Merle, Resting in Peace; 45 lbs, 21 inches tall

Birthdate: 8/9/05

Registered APRI


*We had to say goodbye to Kioda on Dec 17, 2020. We will forever miss you and love you Kioda!*

This was Kioda; our very first Aussie mommy and the reason we started breeding Aussies. She was a beautiful blue merle who was very obedient, loyal, and loving. She was definitely my baby and will probably always be my absolute favorite because of her adorable personality. Kioda loved to flirt and show off when we came home; always picking something up and wiggling around to show us how excited she was to see us. She also smiled (for select people!!!) Kioda was so gentle in everything that she did. She was a wonderful companion and mother. We love you, Kioda, and miss you everyday!

Charlotte is a beautiful Blue Merle Female. She is our largest female.  Charlotte is playful and loving. I went back to the breeder I got Bo from to get one more of his granddaughters– just such a wonderful line Bo produced! Charlotte has beautiful puppies with wonderful dispositions. She is a fantastic mom and is such a calm, well-mannered girl! I love this girl, but she does not love rain and absolutely refuses to go outside in even the slightest sprinkle! Charlotte is great with new people and kids. She also loves to snuggle.

Faith is an energetic beauty! She loves to run and play and doesn’t have a lot of sit still in her :). She has a full white collar and a beautiful coat of fur. Faith is very agile and LOVES to jump! She is friendly and curious. Sometimes she would rather explore than listen, but who can blame her? Faith is a good mom. She resembles her grandmother, Kioda a great deal, but has a completely different personality!

Miya: (RETIRED) Black Tri, 49 lbs, 21 inches

DOB: 6/7/14

Registered AKC






Miya is a gorgeous black tri female from our former pair Lucy & Rover. She has beautiful white and copper trim and she a wonderful sleek, shiny coat. Her mannerisms remind me of Rover; they both wiggle with excitement in a flirtatious way. When it’s just our family, Miya is very well tempered. She is great with our kids and is very gentle and mild, but she isn’t always excited about new people or dogs. I would be willing to re-home Miya, but she would really need to “select” her next owner. She prefers most women over most men. She does not like leashes or car rides. She has started going to the groomer and is warming up to the ladies there a little quicker each time. When Miya is at home with our family, she is the sweetest girl.

Meet Our Boys:


Jack: Black Tri,  65-70 lbs, 23 inches

Birthdate: 3-17-17

Registered: AKC




Jack is a handsome large black tri male. He has some quirky personality traits that make me laugh! When he’s been out in the yard for a long time and I ask him to go inside, he goes and lays down and looks a me like “make me” then I go and just touch his collar and he goes right in! I guess that’s his way of being in charge of something :). Another quirky thing he does is that when I am grooming him, he tries to put one front paw on each of my shoulders and bear hug me– makes brushing a bit difficult LOL. Such a lover! Jack is a good boy!

Black Tri Male, 45 lbs, 22 inches- and growing

Birthdate: 1/23/21


Reuben is a stunning Black Tri, with minimal white trim and lots of bold copper. He is red factored and is ASCA Eligible. Reuben is playful, but after he’s had his exercise, he is generally calm, especially for his age. Reuben is great with our kids and gets along well with other dogs. He is very obedient and loves to go for walks (for him, that means he chases the field birds while I walk!) He has learned to leave the ducks alone, but occasionally still chases the chickens. He seems to leave cattle alone. We are looking forward to having puppies from Reuben in 2022.

RED RYDER: Red Tri, 43 lbs, 20 inches, still growing

Registered AKC, ASCA Eligible

Birthday: 11/17/21

Red Ryder is a gorgeous Red Tri male with green eyes. He comes from two working parents, but is not trained to work cows. He is very laidback. Red Rider joined us in June 2022 and he is still adjusting, but he is a very sweet boy! He is very cautious around new people, but once he warms up, he is so affectionate. Red Ryder takes great delight in trying to “round up” all the chickens and ducks… even after they are already pinned up!


BAXTER (RETIRED): Black Tri, 45 lbs, 20 inches

Birthdate: September, 2012

Registered: AKC


Baxter is a handsome Black Tri Male from Champion show bloodlines. He has a full white collar and lots of beautiful copper trim. He is quite a bit smaller than Jack. He weighs around 45 lbs. Baxter is great with our kids and wants to be wherever we are. He literally walks with his body against my leg and follows me everywhere I go! We took Baxter home when he was about 5 months old and he has been unsure of most men he has met since then, but if men let him approach them on his own terms, he’ll find that they are acceptable and over time, he’ll even let you pet him. He is NOT aggressive at all- just takes a little time to warm up to new people, especially men.
