  1. Happy and Tigger had six awesome puppies on March 14th. They are all sold and have awesome homes!

    • 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!

  2. I live in Montrose… can I come see your babies? I am off this weekend.

  3. Have the dew claws been removed and the tails cut short?
    I live locally, when would be a good time to view the pups?

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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 🙂

  7. I am so excited to see Quincy puppies!! Thank you for the pictures and please send me pictures of the puppies when they come (or let me know and I will follow you on here). Congrats!!!

  8. 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

  9. Hi. I know I missed it, but I’m interested in putting a hold on one of the puppies. Will you contact me and let me know how to do it? I appreciate it!


  10. Hi Ronnie are all the puppies spoken for in the next litter? We spoke before about the previous litter but i was having a baby around the time they were due.

  11. 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

  12. 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)

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. Hi there, I have been looking for a toy Australian shepherd for a while now and your webpage stuck out among the others in CO. I am wanting a red merle female with blue eyes full grown anywhere from 9-20 lbs or so. I am looking for a puppy and was just curious on when your next litter might be or the chances of you having this particular puppy at all. My two other dogs told me they needed a little sister and this breed just seemed right. Any info would be a huge help, thanks for your time I love the pics of the puppies you have up 🙂

  16. Hi, I am interested in adopting a puppy and wasn’t sure the best way to contact you. I sent an email a couple of days ago but my internet has been spotty so I don’t know if it went through. I live in Denver and was wondering if there was any time I could meet up somewhere with you and look at any puppies if they haven’t already been adopted out. Thanks

    • HI Kim,
      Sorry I did not get back with you….the email did not transfer to my mail. Bummer!
      Anyway, I have four left that are ready this coming weekend and six that will be ready Aug 31st.
      Baloo $900, Zip $700, Farah $1200 and Amora $700. The young litter does not have their final prices on them. You can call me with any other question! Roni 970-778-1681 Also I meet part way to Denver for gas money, to help on the drive time for puppy pick ups.

  17. Hello! I am interested in adopting Amora and would like to speak with you to see if she is the right one. I live in Golden and would love to arrange a time to meet the puppies. I can drive over or meet you part way. Thank you.

  18. Your dogs are wonderful. I live in Durango Co I was wondering if I was interested in one of your puppies would it be possible to meet somewhere in between Durango and where you all are. I am looking at Wyatt or Prince.

    Thanks so much,

  19. One more note. I think the demeanor of Prince would work very nicely for my son, for whom I am looking for a Aussie.

    Thanks again,
    Kelly 🙂

  20. Hi my name is Jim and I live in Highlands Ranch, Co. I am looking for an Mini Aussie puppy, I currently have a 5yr old male Mini Aussie. Do you have any available at this time.

  21. I called the other day. I just lost my 14 year old. I live in CO and I want to send you a $100.00 deposit. I like R2D2. I just want a sweet loveable companion that I can love love love. Just a pet not for any other reason. An older dog would be just fine as well….I just want a mini so I can take my buddie with me everywhere. I probably would prefer a male as I don’t really want to deal with spaying. But, I’ve had male dogs and female dogs and I have loved them all. Please guide me through this process if possible. I know you are very busy. Thank you in advance for your assistance and support. Cynthia

    • Hi Cynthia,
      I am so sorry for your loss. My animals are so spoiled with love. So I can only imagine how you must be feeling right now. My Puppy Pick list for the Paris/Lazuli litter is getting quite full. I will contact you by email when the refundable deposit arrives and let you know the status of the Pick. I have three other litters planned for this year, one late November should be born, and two in the spring?
      Looking forward to visiting with you again. Roni

  22. I would be interested in Heidi as well. My last dog was an Australian Shepherd and we are definitely looking for a mature dog versus a puppy. Let me know if the other lady decides not to take her. We are ready immediately if she is available but willing to wait. Thanks

    • She is two months late on her season. So….I have no idea when. I keep waiting and checking everyday! My six month old female came in….sometimes that brings the others in…so we will see!

  23. Hi Ron, I am interested in a red tri or red or blue merle, male. Zorro is the exact size I am looking for she is beautiful. The most important thing for me is size, I would like to stay in the 12-14″ range 16-17lb. I like Zorro’s smooth coat as well. I understand there are no guarantees. I love how you care for your dogs and love that you have puppies in your bedroom. Your video was very cute. I have a 12″ spay female 2 years old blue merle with blue eyes. We have 2/3 of an acre for a backyard. I do agility and obedience for fun. I lost my 13 yr old male this year and his sister 2 years ago. Your puppy would have a loving forever home. I live in Greeley CO (use to live in Glenwood Springs). If I have written you already please forgive me. I did not keep a copy of breeders that I have written in error. I have been searching the internet for a month and I always go back to your webpage. Zorro draws me in. lol
    Please tell me the next step as I am very interested in one of your puppies. Please feel free to call me at 970) 352-2779 or e-mail me. I have been heart broken since my Max passed and know a new little boy would fill that gap in my heart.
    Thank you for your time.

    • Hi Dianne,
      Bluebell should have some Blue Merles….Last time they were Black Tris with blue eyes and Blue Merles with Blue eyes, at least half were Toys like their Dad. 🙂 (Oh Zorro is the pappa):)
      Thanks you for the informative letter! I hope to visit with you soon. Roni 🙂

  24. Hi,
    Just wanted to let you know that comet (was Gizmo) is doing great! We are in love with him.

  25. Hi Roni,

    My two daughters Kelli 8 and Kylie 11 are interested in getting a Mini Aus. Shep. Is it too late to get on your current pick lists?? Or, when would you be having other new puppies…..?

    Thanks – RON

    • Hi Ron,
      I will try to call you sometime tomorrow. It looks like there should be enough puppies from Bluebell and Sky’s litters. 🙂

  26. Roni,

    I have 2 puppies from you now….jasmine an Jozie an I have to say I think you are the best!!! My two girls are so smart, loving, and absolutely gorgeous dogs!! Thank you so much for letting these 2 join my family. I tell anyone looking for an Aussie your the best an my only recommendation. And I’m always looking at your pups because I’ve got an Aussie addiction that started with jasmine lol….can’t wait to see Aspens next litter!!

    Thanks so much!!
    Patti & kids

    • Hi Patti,
      Seeing Jasmine was such a joy. She looked like Aspen, but was the same size as Zorro. What a doll she turned out to be! I am looking forward to photos of the two of them!!!

  27. I am looking for a mismatched Aussie male puppy, preferably with blue eyes. Please keep me posted if this comes up for you.


  28. Hi Roni,
    I lost Rowdy and Cassie last September @14 1/2 and 13 3/4 years. They were stock dog registered minis and 14 inches 19 and 22 lbs.
    Fortunately I still have Sparky the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, but as time goes on I find myself missing an Aussie even more. I think it is because the Cav thinks I am his servant and the Aussies knew we were a team, with me as leader!
    Sparky is 11 and he deserves to be a happy top dog for his remaining years so I would be looking for a smaller sized, calmer pup. I live in Denver and they would get lots of walks and time with Mom. I think I’d also like to get this next one therapy certified. Please let me know about litters this spring.

    • Hi Susan,
      Both Aspen and Paris are expecting litters. Both are great dogs and their sire is laid back and loving……..great for service dogs. I would love to talk to you!
      ! 970-778-1681

  29. I am interested in Nadia. But, first I would like to know how much you think she will weigh as an adult and

    • Nadia is sold. Aspen and Paris are going to be having litters. You can contact me about them. 970-778-1681

  30. Hello,
    I am interested in getting a mini aussie in the next few months and I am just looking for the right place for us. We live in Fort Collins,Colorado, but are looking around the area for something that will fit distance and budget wise. We will be heading toward Grand Junction in September and I wondering if we might be able to set up a time to stop by and take a look at your set up. Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    • Hi Jackie,
      Sorry for the late reply……..I love visitors! Our vacation is in Aug, so September looks great. Let me know in advance so I can keep my schedule open for when you are coming through! 970-778-1681 or RoniH@live.com

  31. Hello Roni, we live in Denver and Salida and are looking for a mini aussie to join our family. We have an eight year old female heeler mix and two teenagers! Where are you located and are all of your puppies reserved at this time?

  32. I’m interested in Chiffon or Sapphire if they are available. I am looking for a Blue Merle Tri Female with two blue eyes. If either of these two puppies are still available, please contact me at my email address or by phone, 303-727-7411. I have a sable Sheltie currently and am looking for a companion for her. Thank you, Pam

    • Hi Pam,
      Four of the five puppies have deposits on them. The final pick for the puppies will start Dec 21st after their Vet Exam. In order to get on the list a $200 deposit is required. Then if the right puppy is not available…you skip to the next litter. There is one place left, but I do not believe that Sapphire or Chiffon will be available. Thanks for the inquiry and interest. Let me know if you have any other questions! Roni

  33. Hi Roni!
    We have one of your female puppies from your litter born 9-11-15 and want you to know how much I love this dog! Thank you so much for breeding quality dogs! One day I hope to purchase another one!
    Thanks again
