Re: OUT WEST AUSSIES

Welcome! Can you tell us more about what you do with your Aussies and what titles they have? I was looking at your "our dogs" page and I noticed that your Aussies are quite heavy for their size. Do you breed very stocky Aussies?

Re: Just lost my 3yr old Aussie to seizures

I do find it odd that she chose to breed the same pair twice more after Mocha. Breeders I know take things like epilepsy very seriously. I'm sorry for your loss. Mocha was sure a cute puppy, I saw her pic on the breeders website.

Re: Aussie Breeders NW Oregon

I think that avoiding breeders with accidental litters is to help weed out the bybs who are just not responsible enough to either supervise their dogs or get them fixed. These are often the ones you'll see on Craigslist. Of course even the best of breeders can have an accidental litter. As long as t...

Re: Wanted Puppy in Ohio

Theres a list of breeders here: http://www.westernhillsaussies.com/Linksstate.html#9" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Be careful about limiting colors as this can also be a bit of a turn off to some breeders. Too many people buy an aussie for the looks or a fancy color but have no clue...

Re: Tailed Aussie Pups Iowa

I was in no way snarky. I merely asked about health clearances, as I would to any breeder. They had and still have every opportunity to say, yes these puppies are health checked, these are the parents etc. And I care because I got my 1st aussie from a BYB who didnt do any kind of health checks, were...

Re: Tailed Aussie Pups Iowa

I find rarely that we have a home from every puppy before the litter is on the ground. That does not stop me from planning a litter because foremost the litter is for myself. But you'd have potential homes lined up for at least some of the puppies, correct? This person is looking for homes for the ...

Re: Tailed Aussie Pups Iowa

I was only using cancer as an example. Of course a dog can get cancer for a variety of reasons. The breeder I was referring to was breeding dogs known to have cancer, all the dogs in her lines died of cancer. She didn't care because she was all about money. She did not have the best intentions, at t...

Re: Tailed Aussie Pups Iowa

There is is cancer in most lines not to mention outside influences. There is a rise in lymphoma is all breeds and mix breeds. I do not feel that cancer should be a litmus for a good breeder. I think my point was missed. Health should be more important than whether the dog likes kids. There was no m...

Re: Tailed Aussie Pups Iowa

As much as many people might not want to admit, or understand this... there are a great variety of reasons why someone wants a dog. And there's a great variety of people who have "needs" on their lists when they shop for a dog. What is a MUST HAVE for one person might not even register on...

Re: Tailed Aussie Pups Iowa

I do have to agree with Stopemocide. Those are enough of a red flag to me to at least question. A typo is one thing, repeatedly misspelling a word that is related to the breed of dog is another. Owning both parents is not necessarily a bad thing, but when someone advertises that, it makes me more co...

Re: Breeders that don't dock tails

You might want to include why you want no docking and what exactly you are looking for in a puppy (performance, farm dog, pet, etc) to help everyone point you in the right direction. It can also be difficult to find a puppy being so specific on color and gender as well.

Re: BC Breeders

I rent right now, and while my current landlord is good with my pets and would likely be ok with a puppy, I'm worried about needing to find a new place with 2 dogs. A friend just bought a larger property that will have an 800 sq ft coach house, have a fenced yard, and will be 100% ok with having my ...

Re: BC Breeders

I'd love another puppy now, but I'm not sure my 500 square foot house would fair very well with 2 aussies and a cat :/. And I made the mistake of looking at your puppy pics.
