We only breed when we want a pup from the litter and we do a lot of research and talk to a lot of people before we decide on a match. We are excited about this cross. Tenor is strong and confident on cattle. He grips both heads and heels and will also hold pressure well. He is OFA excellent, elbows normal and is clear (normal) for CEA, CD, HC, DM, HUU PRA, MRD1 and CMR1, and red factored. Tenor is very athletic, biddable and friendly. Gem works all types of stock. She has a great sense of group and balance. She fetches nicely and naturally, but learned driving quickly as well. Her dam (Kia) has been my best chore dog yet and it looks like Gem will ‘fill Kia’s shoes’. Gem is biddable and very easy to live with. She seems to always be happy and loves farm work. Gem’s littermates are well known and include Dana MacKenzie’s BeeKee (WTCH) and Liz Wise’s Qi. Gem is OFA Good and is N/N for CEA, CD, HC, HUU, PRA, MRD1 and CMR1 as well. We look for this cross to be natural, athletic workers that should excel as farm/ranch dogs, trial dogs (stock and/or agility). All colors possible. It is important for us that the pups get to the right homes. We will consider shipping pups, but only if the buyer can provide appropriate references. We prefer buyers come to our farm so we can meet them and hopefully add them into our ‘Aussie family’.
