After nearly 20 years in big Aussies, I no longer breed them or have any here.  I have several I co-own, all spayed or neutered, or in non breeding homes, except Wink.

Our Big AKC/ASCA Aussies


Australian Shepherd blue merle male show

The incomparable Wink!  What a ride we had with this dog, quickly finishing his AKC Championship and Grand Championship. He loved to show so we decided to continue his specials career, moving through Bronze, Silver and Gold Grand Championships and becoming the 11th Platinum Grand Champion in Australian Shepherd breed history.  Along the way he picked up several all breed Best In Show and several Reserve Best in show wins, countless group placements as well as his ASCA Championship. He was in the Top Twenty in AKC for 3 years in a row.  He'one of those rare dogs who is  born to be ashow dog, a "here for the party" type temperament and even at 10 years of age he's still half kangaroo. He lives in Illinois with his owner Joyce Rutledge and is co-owned by me.  In limited breeding, he has produced numerous titled offspring including one son who is in the top 10 currently.   Standing at stud to approved bitches.
