Clint is a handsome puppy with a black coat. He has the body, coat and markings of a border collie. The markings on his face reminded us of a farm cow, so we named him after Clint Eastwood, a famous cowboy. Very shy and sweet.
Lucy is a beautiful puppy with a darker blue merle coat. She is the second smallest puppy of the litter. She is also the sweetest and most mild of the litter. Currently fits perfectly in a handbag. Loves being held while receiving a belly rub.
Bear is a handsome puppy with a darker blue merle coat. He is the fluffiest puppy in the litter. He loves to run, play in leaf piles and attack your shoelaces. Loves causing trouble with his partner in crime, Archer.
Clark is a handsome puppy with a black coat. He has the body, coat and markings of a border collie. When you pick him up he holds on tight and sticks his legs straight out, making him look like superman. Hence the name, Clark.
Mabel is a beautiful puppy with a black tri coat. She is the only black tri female. She is the third smallest but a very mild and sweet puppy. She loves running after mom and being held. Very mild and sweet.
Emma is a beautiful puppy with a light blue merle coat. She has two big beautiful blue eyes. She was the first born and has always been the biggest of the puppies. Loves being held like a baby and getting a belly rub. Very mild and sweet.
Willow is a beautiful puppy with a blue merle coat. Her markings are exactly like her mothers. She is the runt of the litter. Even though she is smaller, she eats, runs and plays just as hard as her brothers and sisters. Very mild and sweet.
Buttercup is a beautiful puppy with a dark blue merle coat. She has one black left ear and one light blue eye. She loves to play, explore and sit on your feet to keep warm. Named after Princess Buttercup. Very mild and sweet.
Archer is a handsome puppy with a blue merle coat. He has one blue eye and one hazel eye. He's one of our fastest runners and already loves tennis balls. Loves causing trouble with his partner in crime, Bear.
Jax is a handsome puppy with a black tri coat. He is always the first to greet you every morning at the den entrance. Loves to sit between your feet. We named him Jax because of how manly he looks and acts.
Triangle man is a handsome puppy with a black tri coat. Even though he is one of the biggest puppies, he is one of the biggest babies. Loves to give everyone kisses. His name comes from the white triangle on the back of his neck.
Harley is a beautiful blue merle with a very unique coat. Half of her face is white and brown, the other half is black which resulted in her nickname: Two Face. Later we changed it to Harley, after Harley Quinn. Very mild and sweet.
A good way to learn what type of dog your puppy will be can be found by looking at the qualities of their parents. Below is some information about each of the parents of this litter.
Mac is a purebred Australian Shepherd (black-tri coat) who is athletic, loyal, cuddly, smart and extremely docile. His favorite games are keep away (with dog toys) and chasing dirt bikes.
Sadie is a Border Collie / Australian Shepherd mix (blue merle coat) and is very athletic, extremely smart, loyal and a huge cuddler. Her favorite games are fetch and frisbee.
Our #1 priority is to make sure that our puppies go to a good home that can provide them with what they need to be good dogs, so please read up on the breeds below to make sure that you and one of our pups will be a good fit for each other.
Intelligent, hard working, and versatile, the Aussie is a no-nonsense dog who thrives in a home where his brains and energy are put to good use. You don't have to keep a flock of sheep if you live with an Aussie — although it doesn't hurt — but you do have to keep him busy. He's a high-energy dog who doesn't know the meaning of couch potato and wouldn't approve of it if he did. Because he's got energy to burn, he needs plenty of exercise — a walk around the neighborhood won't cut it — and at least a small yard to help him work out his ya-yas. Read More
The Border Collie, a medium-sized dog at 30 to 45 pounds, possesses a seemingly supernatural amount of energy and stamina — a hardiness that was developed when he was required to work all day in the hills and valleys of the rugged Scottish border country, sometimes running 50 miles or more a day. When it comes to the ideal working dog, it doesn't get much better than the Border Collie. The Border Collie is a good match for an owner who is as active as he is, especially one who's eager to get involved in dog sports. With the right training, this breed excels in any activity he tries, including sheepdog trials, agility, flyball, flying disc, advanced obedience, freestyle obedience, or tracking. Read More
