About Us
Please take the time to read over our CONTRACT  carefully.  You will be
asked if you read it and if you agree with it.  NO PUPPY WILL BE SOLD
WITHOUT THIS CONTRACT!   You will be given a copy at time of
delivery.  We sell puppies with breeding rights on a very LIMITED basis
with strict guidelines...and only to experienced breeders. The breeders
contract is not the same as the pet contract.

We are breeders of STANDARD Australian Shepherds, and we are located in South Central,
Mississippi, between Jackson and Hattiesburg.  
Our goal is to produce happy, healthy, quality, sound, STANDARD puppies which anyone
would be proud to own.  Although occasionally we may have a small puppy or two, we breed
for standards only!  We DO NOT HAVE MINI"S!  Our puppies are raised with lots of love and
are socialized, groomed and exposed to different kinds of stimuli.  They are touched and
talked to, cuddled and kissed every day.  We get down on their level on the floor and play
with them.  Our puppies come from top quality breeding stock and meet the requirement of
the written AKC/ASCA standard for the breed.  While some of our dogs are from
Confirmation lines, we strive to produce dogs with not only beauty, but also with
intelligence, the classic "true Aussie".  Our dogs participate in events such as rally,
obedience, agility, and/or herding.  Each parent has a pedigree, which has been studied and
thoroughly researched.  These dogs have been selected to breed because they can both
contribute to the excellence of the breed as well as compliment one another.  Puppies stay with
us until they are at least 8 weeks old.  They will have had at least their first set of puppy
shots, maybe more depending on the age of the puppy when they leave and will be de-wormed
at least once, possibly more, again, depending on the age when they leave.
Puppies selected may be placed on hold (pending)as a courtesy, if deposit is not
received within 3 days the puppy may be placed as available without notice.  We accept
personal checks up to 2 weeks before shipping or pickup.  If check is returned there is a $20
returned check fee added to the cost of the puppy.

I have a lot of people asking for blue eyed puppies, while we produce a high number of blue
eyed dogs, it is not our main focus.  Our main focus is quality and good temperament.  We
give them a good start and the rest is up to you.  

If you have ANY problems, regarding the health of your new puppy...please call us.  We are
concerned about each and every puppy that leaves our care.  Please carefully read our
contract. You will be expected to sign one at the time of purchase and before puppy is
delivered. If you want to reserve a puppy you must pay a deposit and the puppy must be paid
for in full before leaving.  
If you do not pick up your puppy by the time he or she is 10 weeks
old, there will be a fee of  $ 5.00 per day added to your puppy price until your puppy is
picked up or shipped. This covers our cost of care, such as vaccinations, de-wormings, food,
etc. If the puppy is older than 10 weeks, when you have placed a deposit, you have two weeks
from the time you have placed a deposit for pick up or shipping before being charged.  
Here is what we expect from you...
**Health guarantee does not cover any parasite, internal or external, as these are common
treatable conditions in puppies & dogs and does not count as communicable disease, we do
what we can, to control parasites, but all dogs are susceptible to them.  If you purchase a
puppy you must be financially able to take the puppy to the vet and care for the puppy
at your own expense.   Warning!  Puppies are still susceptible to contagious disease although
every effort has been made to prevent this, so please do NOT allow new puppy to walk in an
area where puppies may be exposed to any communicable disease until he or she has been seen
by your vet and fully vaccinated.   Hips and eyes are guaranteed up to the age of 27
months.  If their hips are not fair or better between 24 and 27 months and eyes
are not cleared by 24 months, our guarantee against hip dysplasia and/or
hereditary cataracts are null and void. You are responsible for your own vet bills.  Your
concerns are very important to us and our breeding program.  
So...given all this information, when asked about our prices... as they may be a little higher
than those in some newspaper ads, the buyers who respect the quality and excellence of this
breed, will surely understand and know that they deserve nothing less than a good, quality
puppy, whether it be for a pet or show.  
***All deposits are non-refundable***
***We do not guarantee eye color***
***Due to the varying kinds of food and different environmental conditions that puppies
come in contact with, we will only guarantee their health if they are given NuVet Plus for at
least 2 years (we will extend our guarantee for an additional 3 years if you continue to use
NuVet during the guarantee period)  using NuVet Labs' recommended dosage.  Failure to do
so makes our contract null and void.  NuVet Plus may be ordered from the
NuVet page on
my website.

We also have a questionnaire to be filled out...there are no right or wrong answers.  Much like
you and your family, each litter includes a variety of personalities.  Each puppy is unique.  
The questionnaire is a way to find the best possible match for you.  Each puppy's welfare is
always our number one priority as we are sure it will be for you.
Thanks for looking and enjoy our site.   
While we welcome visitors, we ask that you already know what you are looking for and have
possibly made your selection of a puppy.  We have, in the past let people come look and decide
if an Australian Shepherd is for them, but it can be very time consuming and time that
takes away from our daily chores and training.  We ask again, please do your research, visit
dog shows and different events for the breed that you are looking for, which is probably a
better avenue at deciding if an Aussie is the best breed for you.  If and when you have chosen
one of our puppies is a good time to come look or if we have one that you might be interested
We ask that you do not come look at our puppies on a day that you have been to another
facility to look at puppies because there is always the risk of spreading germs.
Also, w
e will no longer be showing puppies or allowing puppies to be picked up on Saturday
unless it is after 5:00 pm.
We only get one day of rest and this is ours.
We welcome you
any other day during the week daytime hours or on Sunday after - noon.  
By appointment Only!

Thank you
for understanding!  Tammie Dye
Click on the underlined word "contract" above to see a copy.  Also please read this page
carefully.  This is our policy page.  I have been asked why I have a contract...it is to protect
you as well as me.  It is my guarantee to you that the puppy will be delivered in good
health.  If I use capital letters or exclamation points on any page...I'm not screaming, its
only to bring attention to what I'm saying because it's important.  :)
