Our dogs are house pets, none of our dogs are kenneled. Our bitches' whelping box is set up in our bedroom, and remains there for the first 4 weeks of the puppies' lives. This gives me the opportunity to constantly monitor the puppies' temperaments, growth and care.
Due to the amount of time and energy devoted to our puppies we usually have one litter per year. We will never arrange a breeding unless we are absolutely convinced it will be an asset to the breed.
Naturally, all of our dogs have had their hip and eye clearances, all puppies have their eyes cleared before leaving, and are placed with a lifetime placement guarantee. This means that if, at any time in the life of the dog, you as the owner are no longer able to keep it, we want the dog back. We don't want any of our puppies ending up in an animal shelter or inferior home!
Puppy families will receive copies of both parents health clearances, as well as the puppy's. They'll also receive a 5 generation pedigree.
If you are interested in one of our puppies, please take the time to fill out my questionnaire. This not only helps me get to know you & what your needs are in a puppy, it also might trigger questions in your mind that you would like to ask me.
Ivy (Bonza's Lavender Blue)
Jimmy (Ch Sundown's Good Ole Boy Jimmy Joe)
We'll update with new pictures and video weekly, so check back often.
We decided to give these puppies southern, or 'redneck' names, because of their father's name.

Now called Poppy (or Poppet), this little goof is staying here with us.
Katharine in Santa Fe is going to have fun keeping up with him.
She's like Maureen O'Hara, a mix of spunk & elegance. Kathy, of Destiny Aussies, is finally getting a blue eyed tri!
Cy, of Santa Monica, is in agony trying to think of a name for this little guy.
Susan of Santa Fe is getting this girl. She'll get to grow up with her brother!
Ryan owned Eclipse, from my Moon/Sara litter years ago, now it's time for another lover-dumpling.
Claire & Jesse have decided to keep his name. And since they live here in San Diego, I'll get to watch him grow!
