Prefix : THISTLEDUST (Australian Shepherd)
I have been involved in Aussies since 2004, when I welcomed into my home "Morgan" Ch. Shartooz A Knights Tale CD RN ADX JDX GD SD PT, since then I have acquired and titled a number of Aussies including "Suede" Aust Grand Ch Sutters Special Edition RN (Imp NZ), "Dazzle" Neut Ch, Grand Ch Sutters So Bedazzled JC (Imp NZ),"Chime" Ch Shartooz Bells N Whistles, and "Jade" Cuebiyar No Place Like Home CD ADX JD GD PT.
My first home bred Champion Thistledust Blue Suede Shoes, titled at under 11 months of age against some quality competition. His brother Grand Ch Thistledust Black Diamond titled easily when he came back out at 18 months old. Both boys are multiple group and class in show winners. Since then I have bred dogs succeeding in a range of dog sports.
My dogs are part of my family and are house dogs and I participate in a range of sports including Conformation, Agility, Obedience and Herding.
All my dogs are Hip/Elbow scored, eye tested and DNA profiled prior to breeding.
I will not be breeding often, hoping to breed quality rather than quantity, with an emphasis on temperament and structure. I follow protocols and principles set out in “Puppy Culture” ...
I have no litters planned until 2023 and I am currently not taking expressions of interests unless you are specifically after a Thistledust puppy.
Next Litter Planned: Unknown
