Deposit Information

We require a $250 non-refundable deposit to hold a puppy from any litter.  Puppies are picked and sold in the order deposits are received.  A deposit may be moved to the next litter.  If there is not a puppy available in the current litter your deposit will roll to the next litter.  You can ask to be put on a waiting list, but people who put down a deposit will always get to pick first because they are serious.
We only take 4 deposits on a Toy Litter and 6 deposits on a Mini Litter.   We do this because we don’t want to let any person or family down.  Thank you for understanding.
I accept personal checks or PayPal (deposit only). You may pay the balance due on the puppy at 6 weeks of age by Cashier’s Check (for puppies being shipped). People we are meeting can pay the balance in cash.

Puppy Prices

Our puppy prices reflect the genetic testing that the dogs undergo prior to breeding, markings, eye color, vet services and the day-to-day care they receive while they are with us.

As breeders, we like your pets to live long healthy lives so that you can enjoy them more. We take pride in delivering well-bred puppies. All of our puppies are ASDR registrable.

We cannot guarantee the adult height of any puppy. We give you our best “guesstimate” based on experience.  We also cannot guarantee that the pup’s eyes will not change color or marble after the puppy has left our home.

We reserve the right to refuse to sell anyone a puppy. We always act in the best interest of the puppy.

All of our dogs at Saussie Aussies are Genetically Tested by PawPrint Labs. We also test their EYES and HIPS and have them certified with OFA. We do not breed dogs affected by any known diseases or conditions. The kit we provide you contains documents bearing information on the genealogy and genetic profile of your puppy. This is important knowledge for every dog owner.

When dogs have the MDR1 mutation, the blood brain barrier is compromised. The P-glycoprotein encoded in the gene is responsible for pumping many drugs and other toxins out of the brain. This may cause abnormal neurologic signs and can cause illness requiring an extended hospital stay, and in extreme cases, even death.

All sizes of Australian Shepherds and related breeds can have adverse reactions to drugs such as Ivermectin (Heart Guard), Loperamide (Imodium), and other medications.

Dogs that carry the MDR1 gene will be sensitive to Ivermectin and other related drugs. Carriers of MDR1 may also experience some sensitivity to Ivermectin and other similar drugs. If dogs are found free of MDR1, they do not exhibit any sensitivity to these above-mentioned drugs.

Always consult with your veterinarian before administering any medication to your dog. We view genetic testing as vital to the current and future success of our breeding program. Although prior genetic testing makes us spend more, we are nevertheless committed to the health and well-being of every dog under our care.
