Australian Shepherd Puppies

We have up coming Australian Shepherd Puppies. We mainly have Blue Merles, some with blue eyes, and Red Merles, some with blue eyes, but we do have a few black tri and red tri puppies. We are just taking deposits to hold them until they are old enough to go to their new families (at 8 weeks of age).

Despite the Australian Shepherd name, the breed was not developed in Australia, but rather in the United States. They were in the western U.S. as early as the 1800s. For many years Aussies have been valued by stockmen for their versatility and trainability. But, they have earned recognition in other roles due to their trainability and eagerness to please and are highly regarded for their skills in obedience.

Aussies have considerable energy and drive and usually need a job to do. It often excels at dog sports such as dog agility and frisbee. They are successful search and rescue dogs, disaster dogs, detection dogs, guide dogs, service dogs, and therapy dogs. But, some Aussies can be calm and easy-going.

Australian Shepherds can show reserved and cautious guarding behaviors. They are kind, loving and devoted to those they know. They are very loyal to their owners. They are not inclined toward obsessive barking.

Australian Shepherds are a medium-sized breed of solid build. They can be between 30 to 65 pounds and 17 to 26 inches in height. However this can vary.

Most Australian Shepherds are born with a long tail. The standard calls for a natural bob or docked tail, not to exceed 4 inches.


Australian Shepherds can be black, red, blue merle and red merle in color. They can have copper and white markings. A merle color looks similar to a marble. Aussies eyes may be any shade of brown or blue. They can have muti colored eyes, which is acceptable.

Australian Shepherds have a surprisingly long lifespan for a dog of their size. Their life span can be 12.5 years.

Collie eye anomaly (CEA) is rare in the breed but it and cataracts are a concern. Other conditions to note are iris coloboma, canine hip dysplasia (CHD), Pelger-Huet anomaly, hypothyroidism, and nasal solar dermatitis.
