How To Buy An Australian Shepherd Puppy?

by Jake

I had an Aussie's as a kid, but he was just picked out of a litter from the ranch down the street. 40 years later, looking to buy an Aussie from an Arizona breeder.

Does anybody have a breeder recommendation? And/or a list of questions a breeder should be able to answer?

Thanks. Jake.

I'm looking for an Aussie puppy for Christmas. How do I find a reputable breeder in my area? I don't want a puppy-mill dog. Does the AKC have a rating/review of breeders?

You can find a listing of breeders organized by country and state or province in our Australian Shepherd Breeders Directory here.

You still need to do your due diligence about the breeder though. You can find more information about that in these articles:

always look at rescue centers near by. i looked at some aussie rescue centers (look up 'aussie rescue centers near me' and it should pop up) and i found a bunch of aussie puppies. i know you might want a pure bred with a championship bloodline but think about how many perfectly fine aussie puppies are out there.
