                                  HOW TO HOLD YOUR PUPPY OF CHOICE!

(NOTE: Each litter requires a separate Deposit Check)

A $100 non-refundable deposit will hold your puppy … after 4 weeks and prices are determined, you will decide to get a puppy, pass or have your deposit returned to you.

The remainder of the puppies payment is paid upon picking up your puppy if you are nearby. Cash is required if you are out of town.  If you need to ship, the full payment and shipping must be paid in ample time for send off delivery of your puppy.

(I supply references upon request) :)

Shipping is very expensive (around $350 from here). I often meet somewhere to shorten the drive for gas money.


This purchase contract is a basic guideline for my puppies.  My goal and commitment is to having this be a great experience for you and your family and myself.



Puppy Pick List


Basic Pricing  

 I have tried to figure out how to serve the people shopping for the perfect puppy and have come up with a plan that seems to be working.

I have interested parties send me a refundable check of $100. (When I make the final prices at around 4 or 5 weeks, it is time to drop out or commit….the deposit then becomes non-refundable.)
The order I receive them in the mail is the order of the pick of the litter.

Being on the list is risk free, because my puppies vary in pricing as their eye color becomes known.  I want people to get what they want and fits their family, and pocket book.

For Example:  Last litter I had 6 puppies and 5 refundable deposits.  Two dropped out- with my blessing, three bought puppies.

  Pricing goes basically like this:

BLACK TRIS AND RED TRIS                                                $700

BLACK TRIS AND RED TRIS WITH BLUE EYES                 $800-$1500

BLUE MERLES AND RED MERLES                                      $900


WITH EXCEPTIONAL MARKINGS                                    $1000 -$1500

MIS-MARKS (TOO MUCH WHITE)                                   $350-$500   PET ONLY

I reserve the right to price any exceptional puppy as I desire.

    • Hi all the way from Germany! Do you have dogs? Are their tails kept long in Germany? It would be a delight to see some of yours if you have some!

  1. Hi Roni. I ran across this breed in town (Colorado Springs) and decided that this would be the perfect companion and second dog to my sheltie. I am interested in adopting in the spring 2013, particularly a blue merle with blue eyes male. Your puppies and care of them look awesome!

  2. Hello!
    I would love to hear when you next have a blue merle m/f with brown eyes. I’m looking to adopt next fall/winter and wanted to get an early jump on it! Thank you! -Emily :)

    • Hi Emily,
      I have a puppy pick list for my litters. I cannot promise a specific puppy, because the order of receiving the refundable deposit is the order that I place people on a list for each litter. You can place a refundable deposit on an upcoming litter around the time that you hope to add to your family and have a jump on everyone and get first pick. Call me and I can fill you in on my upcoming litters. Have a great day!

  3. I have two border collies and am looking to add a mini aussie when my 16 year old female is no longer with me. The other female is 4 and will need a buddy. Am looking for a male and live in Silt, Co. Would love to come and see your facility.

    • Hi Christie,
      I just checked my web page to update it and noticed your post from Dec. I will not be having any puppies for about 5 months. You can come by and see my adults anytime! Just call me at 970-778-1681 :)

  4. Hello – I see your most recent reply – sounds like you may be having puppies mid summer? Which pair? I love your adults. My husband and I live in Summit County, so not far from you and we eagerly wait for your peaches each season! Please let me know, as we are looking for a pet, not breeding

    Thank you

  5. Hi there, I was just checking in on the puppy situation. I was also wondering if I could come by sometime to visit and see your dogs to show my kids what our dog will be like. I would like to come after the pups are born and able to be held, if possible. Looking so forward to meeting you and our new addition! :0)
    Let me know when we can plan that.
    Thank you so much!!
    Kathy Bagley

    • Hi Kathy,

      I am home now, and all four of my females are pregnant. The end of Oct will be perfect to see them with the kids. We will have two week old and newborns…..Roni

  6. Hi Roni,
    I am interested in adopting one of your puppies from any of your dogs’ upcoming litters. Please let me know how I can place a deposit so I can be added to the pick lists. Thanks so much!

    • Hi Kirstin,
      Somehow I missed your post and never replied. I have three litters and one about to be born. My Puppy Pick List has 9 people and I have 15 puppies available for sale out of Paris, Bluebell and Heidi. Sky is due mid-Nov and her deposit will be separate from the first bunch.
      The deposit is refundable, so if you have not found that perfect puppy yet, send in your deposit to hold a spot on the Puppy Pick List. I will send your $100 deposit back if you do not find what you want. :) Oh and the puppies are posted on the web page with my mailing address. (The final Pick will be around November 28th…after their Vet Exam)

  7. I have really enjoyed reading the comments from your happy and so well informed customers.
    My first children were horses and dogs. Now, As a mother of human children, 5 yr old twins, this is the longest I have gone without canine children. After our dogs went to doggie Heaven, we were moved over seas for business. Now we can’t wait to add to our family.
    My children have been referred to as “dog savy,” and respect all animals space. Do you have a way of temperment testing your pups to determine which would be a best fit for us? I am less concerned with appearance, plus we are looking for companion pets only. All your fluffy children are beautiful, but I think Heidi is beyond extravagant. I would also be interested in the possibility of an older dog too, if you come across one that is needing a forever home.

    • Hi Susan,
      So nice to hear about your family. Wow….twins…I always wanted
      twins, that is until they turned about 9 months old and started running
      around. I think people with twins are heros!
      My puppies leave by around 8 weeks, so their temperament is still
      developing. I can tell if I have and over sensitive or with drawn puppy,
      or overly aggressive…This breed needs lots of socialization and they make
      wonderful family and kids dog.
      It just so happens that Heidi will be adopted out after her litter
      leaves. She is 4 1/2 years old. I co-owned her with a legally blind
      friend of mine who has had to go into an assisted living home. Heidi loves
      everyone. She is not so crazy about other dogs. She grew up with a cat,
      so she is good with them too. We can talk about her as the time gets
      nearer. She will be spayed for $150 and I hoped to place her for a Total
      of $300, ($150 for the spaying and $150 for the new owner).
      She is 15 inches tall and weighs about 25 lbs. When I place an older
      dog, it is on trial basis. We love them so much after they have been a
      part of our family that we want them to be WONDERFULLY happy and ALSO the
      new owners. Usually 3 weeks tells us if they will adjust.
      Where do you live? Roni

  8. My friend, Keith, just lost his Aussie and is looking to adopt a pet mini. He doesn’t have email so I would like a contact number he can call to talk to you. He might even be interested in a dog you don’t plan to breed anymore.

    • Hi Felisha,
      Just note on each refundable check which female Example, Paris, Sky. I have a folder for each litter and the Puppy Pick List is for each individual litter. I do not cash the checks, I keep them until the pick is made for that litter. All puppies become available at 4 weeks when I price them. The list just gives you the ability to hold a puppy. You can pass at any time and I return your deposit.
      Send to Roni Hale, 3596 G 7/10 Road, Palisade, Co 81526.
      Thanks! Roni

  9. I am interested in Paris’ up coming litter. Is there away I could come and see the puppies? My wife and I are located in Southern Denver.

    • Hi Greg,
      Paris is due in the first week of May. I am excited about her litter! I receive inquiries before my puppies are born, so I have a refundable Puppy Pick List. Paris has 5 people on her list at present. They get to pick/or pass in the order according to when I receive their deposit checks. You are welcome to visit my Adult dogs anytime, and the puppies when they are born. I am expecting several litters starting in May. Each of my females has a refundable deposit of $100 to hold a place on the Puppy Pick List. If any of the Litters has your attention, send in a deposit. If you do not choose from the litter, I send back your check. I do not cash the checks. I make the final prices on the puppies at 5 weeks, right after their Puppy Vet Check. At that time you decide or I send the check back. Hope I have not confused you! You can call with questions too! Roni 970-778-1681

  10. Hello. I will be looking to purchase a female pup in the future. I like the black tris, but I am not going to pick solely on looks. I am an avid horsewoman and ride all year long. Winters around Farmington, NM where I live, and up in the San Juans once the snow is off the mountains. My good friend has a young Mini and I am so impressed with the breed both as a companion and trail partner. I will be interested in a pup who shows a lot of athleticism and intelligence as the dog will go on trail and camping and will need to learn to be savvy around the horses. My dogs get a lot of exercise and attention, so a smart energetic dog is not a problem for me. Which one of your females would you recommend given what I am describing?
    Thanks for your time. Anne

    • Hello Anne Z,
      I have been very pleased with my dogs as companions. My husband and I try to take them with us as much as possible. As for your question, all of my females would make great dames for a puppy. My stud Zorro is quite small, and the litters will be producing Toys and Minis. I would suggest a medium to large mini. That way when you are riding and off in the wilderness your gal would be safe from The eagles and coyotes. The best size in my opinion is between 15 to 16 ” at the shoulder weighing approx 22 to 28 lbs.
      All five of them are Athletic. They tend to be average in energy, so there brains engage quite well. They are not hyper, but attentive and loving. Sky is shy around people, but she seems to be growing out of that. Paris and Bluebell are LOVERS. Heidi is loyal and a bit dominant…wanting to control the pack. Aspen is sweet and loving life. I hope that answers your questions.
      Let me know if you have any other thoughts. Oh yeah, they see my horses through the fence, but they have not been riding with me. I just decided to quit riding because of back injuries. The dogs that I have rode with are amazing. They circle me as I ride and lead the way. They never chase the wild horses and they do not roam off. The puppies will not be underfoot as they will be too young, but they can see the horses across the fence. :)
      My first choice would be a Bluebell puppy, then Paris, then Aspen, then Sky, then Heidi. ( Just the order of what I would pick if I was to choose one.) Bluebell often has black tris with blue eyes. Heidi should have black tris too.
      Thanks for the inquiry! Roni

  11. Hello! Your dogs have a hell of a life! Thats how Aussies should be raised my 2 go everywhere with me, trail rides, camping, you name it! Your dogs are gorgeous! I love all the pictures. Do you ever sell puppies as breeding/or show quality?

    • Hi Lisa,
      My dogs are sold with full breeding rights. The only ones that go as limited registration are the mis-marks. They have too much white on their face or their bodies. They sell as pet only.
      I am trying to breed the best dogs I am able to. I DNA test them and I am learning all the time how to improve my program.
      Come on by and meet the pack if you are near here!
