Neither Ally nor Edi have allergies and both are easykeepers (great in the house and out of the house), possess superior temperaments, sound structure and movement. Edi is trained and trialed by Steve, and Ally is trained and trialed by Anne.

We're looking for stockdog trialing and/or performance homes for this litter. Complete our questionnaire if you'd like on the waiting list. Pet inquiries also welcome. Anyone wishing to keep any pup in this litter intact MUST compete with the pup or reside on a working ranch. We will screen homes for compatibility, and references will be checked.

Pups are $750/fully guaranteed (NOTE: 20% DISCOUNT to proven stockdog trial homes; Steve is a phone call away for advice in training these pups to work stock). These pups will have plenty of grit and desire, and will be guaranteed to work stock. They will probably be leggy and athletic with a very moderate coat. Talk to Steve if you have any questions about the working style of either the sire or dam.

Reservations highly recommended. Our Buy/Sell Contract is applicable; please read the terms. 1st & 2nd picks are both seeking males and 3rd pick is seeking a female - No deposits until the litter turns 4 weeks of age, but you can get on the waiting list now.
