Welcome to Rock'n C Lil Aussies:
Raising Quality Miniature Australian Shepherds and Miniature American Shepherds
I no longer raise standard aussies but I do get puppies occasionally that will be small standard in size.
We are located in Southern Oklahoma on 60 acres in Wilson, OK.
Our dogs are bred for quality and conformation. I strive for good bone, personality, coat, and conforation. All of my dogs are socialized and love to play with other dogs and people. They love to go along for horse back rides or with the quad runner. They help do chores everyday. If you get an aussie you will never own another type of dog big or small. They are like potatoe chips, you can't have just one.
Every dog in my breeding program are PRCD & HSF4 (Hereditary Cataracts) normal. Buying a puppy from Rock'n C Aussies gaurantees that the puppy is 100% clear without testing of PRCD & HSF4. OFA for hips are tested on my dogs for hip displasia too.
Cheryl & Rio June 2010 won BOB under both judges at the Mini Specialty.
We spend alot of time with our dogs everyday as they are not kennel dogs but part of the family. The puppies are well socialized when they leave for their new homes. I will know each pups personalities so you will know what you are buying. Your new puppy will be registered with either AKC or ASDR, and will come with up to date shots and wormings. If a puppy needs shipped I generally use a ground shipper.
PUPPY LOVE AT ROCK'N C AUSSIES
I grew up riding horses and love to go horse back riding and especially with friends. The happiest time for me is on the back of a horse. I really enjoy my dogs going along too. My horses consist of a sorrel mare Lori Darling by Hes A Peptospoonful out of a daughter of Shining Spark. She is a trained reined cowhorse that I am using for ranch sorting. Then there is Paris which is a sorrel mare, Frenchman's Guy bred. She is my barrel horse that I also use to Ranch sort on and trail ride. Smart Gaviota, he is a sorrel gelding by Smart Little Lena that taught me very much about cutting. He is my retired cutting horse that is pictured below with me aboard. He now carries Devin the grandson on trail rides and also playdays which they have won lots of things including trophys, many ribbons, bell boots, halters, buckets, etc. He is a great kids horse and loves being retired. Bernie is not retired and living the grand ole life of eating hay and grass.
Bernie is one of the best horses we have ever owned. He is by Smart Little Lena, has won $60K cutting, and my all time favorite cutting horse. Bernie and I did good in the 2 yrs we got to cut together. Bernie is now retired and we are using him to work cattle when we have them and trail ride him. Bernie is now Devin's horse and which they ride everywhere and we have no worries for Devin when he is on Bernie. They are a good team.
Long time family friends even love Rock'n C pups. Kayla and her family have been friends for a very long time and she finally got a puppy of her own. Misty is a pup from Kade & Shiver and resides with Kayla in Bellevue, Ia.
If you are in the area please feel free to drop in and see the dogs and horses. We are always up for visits and love to meet new people and make new friends. I do travel quite a bit too so if you are interested in a puppy always feel free to ask if I might be heading somewhere.
Our dogs are diffently kid friendly with our seven yr old grandson running around. Here Devin is riding in his Hummer at age 2 showing he can drive it standing up. Devin with his puppy Allie. Devin leashed trained her himself plus he leash trains all of my pups. He is the best thing for the puppies as he loves them and they love him.
