Frequently Asked Questions
How much do you sell puppies for?
I price each puppy individually based on a number factors: color, size, sex, conformation, and more. But the base price list is as follows: tri males $650, tri females $750, merle males $800 merle females $950.
Will the puppies have all their shots?
Yes, and no. The puppies will leave my place being up to date on shots and wormer. I start them with a 5-way vaccine at 6 weeks old. They get wormed at 4 weeks and at 6 weeks.
They need booster shots about every 4 weeks after their initial vaccination as well as regular worming. I suggest at least 4 rounds of puppy shots. At 4 moths old they are old enough for a rabies vaccine. Then they should be protected for a year, but be sure to ask your vet about vaccinations as well.
How old are the puppies when they go to their new homes?
I have found that mini aussies are ready for pick up at 7 weeks old. But I watch each litter and each individual puppy to make sure they are eating well and ready for new homes.
They leave with vet records, puppy care package and a little toy or blanket that smells like home to ease the adjustment.
I live…. will you meet me half way?
I would love to say yes to every person traveling distances to get a puppy from me, but it just isn’t something I can commit to. Some litters have as many as 11 puppies. That means 11 people are trying to get their puppy on roughly the same day from me. If I promised to meet each person half-way… Well I don’t need to explain it. I also live on a ranch have lots of chores to do each day. So getting away from the house is very difficult for us.
That said, I do try to help as much as possible. If I know someone that travels your direction I can try to arrange transportation and a lot of times I can arrange travel with another puppy buyer from the same litter.
So don’t be afraid to ask and I will try to help as much as possible.
How does buying a puppy work?
I contact everyone on my email list when I announce a new litter of pups. After a couple notifications one email, I post pups on my web page and Facebook. First come first serve.
Ideally I like people to come and meet the puppies in person, but I know that isn’t always feasible so I can take pictures, videos and I try to explain each pups individual characters to help you decide which pup is right for you..
It is only after you have chosen your perfect puppy that I ask for a $100 deposit. That will hold that specific puppy for you. If you have a name picked out, I will start calling the puppy by that name, and I continue to post photos so you can see your baby grow.
How will a mini aussie do if I don’t live on a ranch?
I sell my mini aussies as working dogs. We live on a ranch and my dogs work, and they are GOOD at it! I am very proud of the instincts my dogs have.
That being said, I sell most dogs to pet homes and they do very well. They need socialization, training and exercise, but I believe that is true for every dog, horse or person in the world.
I hope this helps. If you have additional questions you are welcome to call me anytime!
Thanks so much!
