LEGENDAIRE PUPPIES

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN A LEGENDAIRE PUP or DOG PLEASE COMPLETE THE PRE-PURCHASE APPLICATION PAGE AND SUBMIT TO HEATHER ASAP TO SECURE YOUR PUP. A $250 NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT IS REQUIRED TO HOLD PUP.

ALL OF OUR PUPS ARE LITTER TRAINED TO USE CEDAR SHAVINGS TO MAKE IT EASIER TO TRANSITION THEM TO GO POTTY OUTDOORS WHEN THE WEATHER IS WARM. Once our puppies are weaned and weather permits, they are transitioned to use dog doors to go outside. OUR PUPPIES ARE WELL SOCIALIZED WITH PEOPLE AND OTHER DOGS.

All pups have will be scored on Volhard's Puppy Aptitude Test and scores are listed with puppy info. OUR PUPS GENERALLY ALL SCORE 3'S AND 4'S WHICH IS IN THE IDEAL PERSONALITY RANGE.

For more info about Volhard's PAT visit http://www.volhard.com/pages/pat.php

 We use the following registries with our dogs: AKC (AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERD), ASDR, UKC, & MASCA

Our puppies are sold on contract and NOT allowed to be registered as AKC Mini American Shepherds. We believe in preserving the true Aussie heritage of our dogs! 

All of our puppies are raised in the house. Their parents are our house dogs.  They get lots of love and attention every day so they will be well socialized with kids and other dogs when they are ready for new homes. Our puppies are litter trained to use cedar shavings to make transition easier to learn to potty outside. Shipping is available. We use ground transport when available as well as air.  Prospective owners are welcome and encouraged to visit the puppies and their parents at our house.

Health Testing: 

We are in the process of testing all of our breeding stock and will update the website when results are available  .

OFA Hips & Elbows
Hereditary Cataracts

MDR1 (Multi-Drug Resistance Gene)-ALL of our breeding stock is MDR1 (Multi-Drug Resistivity) gene tested. 

Please check out the links below for more info on the MDR1 gene if you have or are considering getting an Aussie or other shepherd/herding dog. This gene affects several breeds. Breeds known to carry the mdr1 mutation include Australian Shepherds of all sizes, Collies, English Shepherds, Longhaired Whippets, McNabs, Old English Sheepdogs, Shetland Sheepdogs, and Silken Windhounds. Research has shown that three of every four Collies and two of every four Australian Shepherds (of any size) have at least one copy of the mutated gene. Do NOT let any breeder tell you that this is not an important test! Breeders who do not test their breeding stock may be producing puppies that can have fatal consequences or permanent neurological damage if they are given certain drugs, flea/tick/heartworm medications, etc. The list of drugs keeps growing, so BE AWARE! We only breed N/M dogs to N/N dogs to avoid producing puppies with potentially fatal M/M ( homozygous mutant genes).


This also means that if your mixed breed dog has, or you think s/he might have, any of these herding breeds in its pedigree, you should test your dog and avoid the drugs on the list until you have test results.

Each approved applicant will be notified (in the order their application was received) when a suitable puppy or older dog becomes available. You will then be given the opportunity to place a deposit on the desired puppy or dog to hold him/her until time for them to go to a new home. Please remember that if you desire a show/breeding potential puppy we reserve the right to pick your prospect for you as we know our Aussie's potential. From time to time we take in "rescue" dogs to re-home. We take pride in knowing all of the dogs we have re-homed have wonderful new families who adore their new "kids". We will be happy to answer any questions you may have about purchasing one of our wonderful AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERDS. Just call or email us.
