Bandit has many more pups out there with agility, obedience, stock legs.  These pups will be added as their owners or breeders email me with the title info:) Bandit would have his USASA ROM Ip if USASA allowed the ILP dogs. The last three dogs listed above are by a dam who is not AKC registered (she is ASCA registered). Hopefully we'll get the registry reopened soon and those dogs named above put in as foundation stock for AKC along with their dam and siblings.


For those of you interested in using him at Stud, here is his GENETIC feedback on his get:

He has litters by 19 bitches.  He reached HOF on 5 litters.  He has 111 pups on the ground.  Many of his get are on ranches, some doing therapy, many are pets and about 25% are competing in various venues with wonderful success.  We value a pet home as much as we do a competitive home so never pushed for competition homes for his pups.  Bandit is producing high drive, sound temperament, and performance capability with great structure.  Expect his get to be slow maturing physically.  Most will mature at age six.  He has produced hip ratings of many excellents & goods, one fair, and 4 dysplastic.  You can check out the genetic lines below to see what he produced when crossed into certain lines; it'll serve as great feedback for you if you are considering him for stud purposes or if you own one of his pups.  Bandit has produced zero eye problems (knock on wood:) and produced zero epilepsy.  On Bandit's Wilcox side, no sires or dams were officially hip rated to our knowledge although they were reported to us to be; they may not have mailed in any xrays for an official rating.  That side of his pedigree is working ranch dogs.  Bandit's eyes were cleared annually up and until age 9; there were never any notations made on his eyes.   He's never been to a vet for any illness.  He just starting graying around the muzzle at age 10.  Bandit has been an easykeeper, doing well on any dog food he's been fed.  His one IBD pup listed below reacted very negatively to Canidae & Flagyl and continued to go downhill.  Questions on that pup can be directed to Betty Jaco of Regatta Aussies.  We recommend you run a blood test for compatibility of Flagyl* and if you feed Canidae that you supplement it with meat.
