This is a proven repeat cross.

Patton is out of the first cross of Dodge x Emmy and is owned and trained by William D. Middleton, II in Fincastle, VA. He is a young powerful black (minimal white, red factored) male who has gained respect and interest from all who have seen him work stock across the country. There are multiple Hall Of Fame and WTCH’s in Patton’s pedigree. He possesses tons of natural talent is a quiet worker with a strong desire to please. Observing Patton’s progress and accomplishments over the past three years and the talented prospects of his and Venom’s progeny from the first cross convinced us to repeat this cross again. He has a natural presence of power and a hard grip. He is a strong head dog but has the power presence on the heel to move his stock. He has a strong group, fetch, natural wide out, good balance, rates well and will cover his stock. Patton finished as the Reserve Champion Cattle dogs in the 2017 Australian Shepherd Club of American Stockdog Finals in Bryan, Texas. He has earned multiple HITs over the course of his trialing career. He won the most promising started (2014) and High Combined WTCH (2016) at the WAV trial and High Combined Non WTCH at the Peach State Classic (2015) and High Combined WTCH at the Cherokee Rose (2017). Patton and William laid down a 124 on cattle at the Rose.

Venom is a blue merle female with copper trim and is a very talented progeny from the first litter out of WTCH Coosawattee ItJustComesNatural, DNA-VP aka Georgia by Las Rocosca Clark Kent, ATDd OTDs STDc, DNA-VP. She is owned by Andrea Killebrew of Chattanooga, TN. We will be leasing Venom for this breeding. She is a very powerful cattle dog, and a fancy low heeler yet works either end equally. She works with a moderate amount of eye and finesse on sheep and ducks. She continues to amaze us with her intelligence, rate and stock savvy. It is unique to find this level of working intensity along with such a willingness to accept training. In limited trialing Venom qualified 15th in the 2017 ASCA Stockdog Finals in Cattle and 29th in Sheep. She has earned multiple HIT cattle, sheep and duck awards and earned an impressive HIT with a 120 score under Brad Warren on E Course Cattle at the 2016 Cherokee Rose Trial. She also earned the coveted High Combined Non-WTCH award at the 2015 ASCA Nationals in Murfreesboro, TN under the handling of Tony.

Both Patton and Venom have excellent structure and health clearances.
