I have some
wonderful dogs retiring soon. They are
looking for their perfect homes. If you
see something that you like, please read the
description. These are adult dogs and
aren't as easy to shape and mold exactly as you
want like a puppy is. If you're looking
for an adult, do yourself, the dog and me all a
favor and pick your match by the dog's
personality other than their looks! PLEASE
call anytime to ask as many questions as you
want! I want these guys to have the
describe the dogs to the best of my ability.
If you want to find the perfect adult dog, call
me! Tell me what you're looking for. This
is sometimes easiest. If you can tell me
about yourself, I can help you pick the dog that
best fits you.
remember, these are Aussies, not Labs.
They don't just love, lick and wag at everyone
Aussies are very loyal, obedient and live to
please their human.
With this comes the being naturally stand-offish
of strangers. This is breed standard. Some warm up faster than
Some will be afraid of loud children, while
others will welcome it.
Aussies are sensitive. It doesn't take
much to discipline them. While you have to
continuously chase a lab around with the shoe it
keeps chewing on every day, a firm word and
occasionally a firm hand is all it takes to
convince an aussie that you're not pleased and
that's the end of it. Aussies live to
please you and react better to positive
reinforcement. Please do your research on
the breed, especially before deciding on an
Puppies adjust well to almost any situation.
While adult dogs can take more time, patience
Knowing the dog's personality that you're
choosing will help a great deal. Please
remember to keep that your FIRST priority.
You'll be happier and so will the dog.
These dogs have taken care of me, now it's my
turn to take care of them. They aren't
just going to the first person to call.
They are going to find homes that fit them,
where they can be happy and live out the rest of
Their prices are simply the cost of Spay/Neuter,
final vet check, a teeth cleaning and grooming.
About $300 or less.
separate. Pick up so you can meet the dog is
preferred, but not a must if we both feel the
home is a fit.
don't mean to discourage any calls or inquiries,
I DO NOT sell my retire dogs to just anyone.
People that call just wanting the blue one for
$150 do not get one of my dogs. These dogs
are individuals and the rest of their life
depends on me finding them a good home.
They don't have a say in the matter, it's up to
me. PLEASE understand that they all have
individual personalities. As an older dog
this is the MOST IMPORTANT THING. If you
have ideas in mind for what you want for a dog
(agility, working in a nursing home, a drug
dog...) or if you have young kids, please
consider a puppy, they adapt much easier to any
situation. Puppies fit in almost any home
while an adult Aussie needs a home to fit them.
I'd be more than happy to explain or help you
pick which one fits you. This way everyone
is happy. You don't want a dog that you'll
be disappointed in and I'd rather send you one
that is exactly what you were dreaming
||Cooter has found his forever
home in Louisiana! He will be
making his final appearance with me
at the ASDR show here in May.
A wonderful young lady named Lauren
drove all of the way here to meet
him and it was love at first sight
for both of them. Cooter isn't
that old, but he has been a huge
part of my breeding program, a
wonderful pet and entertainer.
I have kept several of his puppies,
grand puppies and great
He deserves nothing less than what
he's getting. His person, who
will be his one and only. A
warm spot on the couch and a twice
monthly visit to the doggy spa!
I wanted the perfect home for him
and it looks like I found it!
Lauren is coming to the show in May
to help me show him and others.
She'll be taking him home from
He has a few litters due
between now and then. If
you've ever wanted a 'Cooter baby'
you better look now!
Thanks Lauren! Maybe we'll
even see you and Cooter at more dog
shows in the future!
Its getting late and I'm running out
of time for tonight...so here is just a
quick list. See something that
strikes your interest, you can call.
Most of these will not be 'small
children' dogs as I do not have

but loves people and any kind of
treat! Fun and playful.

be close enough to 'try' her to
see if she fits in with her new

She'd do well in a more quiet

|Piper - Great
little girl, loves everyone.
Outgoing and should adjust
quickly. But remember, hasn't
been around kids.
Please note: these dogs don't have to go
anywhere. They can live out the rest
of their lives running loose out here.
I just prefer them to have their own spot on
There comes a point when all of the couches
and chairs are full that the doors have to
be closed and some of these guys have to
stay outside for the evening.
I would love nothing more for them to have
their own lives with their new family who
adores them and has just another dog or two
to devote their time to.
Lots to do on my website tonight. But in
good company! Tommy, Monster, Agent, Leah, Furby, Baby
Girl, Lovey (the resident rescue poodle),
Monster, Shorty, Peggy Sue, Jasmine, Chica,

It's so important to me that people
considering adopting one of these guys
understand that these are not just dogs to
They are family. They deserve the very best.
They are dogs, they don't have the power to
make decisions for themselves.
They don't have a voice to say what they
want or don't want.
God has trusted me with these babies and
it's my job to make sure that where they go
is in their best interest.
Here are a couple of numbers of a family
(daughter, mother and grandmother) who have
adopted adult dogs from me.
Please feel free to call them with any
questions you might have!
