Australian Shepherds

            Our Wiggle Bottoms

 We traveled all over the state of Tennessee and into Kentucky to find our quality puppies.  Our mission is to raise quality Australian Shepherds that can compete in agility, herding, or showing.  We have three champion bloodlines.  Our dogs are friendly and well-mannered.  They get along with each other and they are raised around goats and chickens.  We play with them on a daily basis.  Most love the water but they all have different personalities!  

Spring Creek's Pistol Packin' Piper!

Piper is so friendly and curious!  She has earned her STAR Puppy award and completed basic obedience class through Wildcard Canine in Crossville TN.  Our next adventure is coming soon...Trick training!

Spring Creek's Double Shot of Nitro

Nitro is a bundle of energy!  He insists on being the center of attention and he loves to bounce! He still has some growing to do and I can't wait to see just how big he gets!

His parents are both genetically clear on the basic genetic testing for Australian Shepherds!

Blue Meadow of Harmony Patch

This was our first female Aussie.  Isn't she beautiful?  She is still the best behaved dog we have!  She loves attention but she listens first.  She is an attentive mama dog and has raised some pretty puppies!  She likes her ears scratched and she is our only dog that does not like water! While the others go for a dip, she sits on the shore!

Callie Rose of Harmony Patch

Callie is the most unusual dog I have ever been around.  She stays inside our perimeter fence, yet she easily jumps all of our divider fences.  She was an awesome momma to her puppies but her last litter was hard on her so we decided to have her spayed.  She is the best 'aunt' to all of the puppies here --playing and sharing her treats with them.  Her favorite past time is patrolling the farm followed closely by napping on the front porch.  She loves belly rubs and likes to help round up the baby goats!

Sargeant Dollar of Harmony Patch

Sarge is a red tri with wonderful conformation.  He is very lively and extremely intelligent. Even though he is five years old, he is still a puppy at heart.  He loves to play with a ball, though they don't last long!  His favorite toy is an oinking pig and he LOVES the water! He loves attention and always alerts us to company.  Sarge is retiring from our breeding program this year, but he's staying on as our head farm hand!
