You cannot have happy, healthy puppies unless you start with happy, healthy dogs!!!
See our Past Pups page to see the babies growing and see
what their new people are saying about them
We do not stud out our males .......or sell our adults........or ship our puppies
March 8th, 2016 - We have no pups currently available but we do have several breedings planned for the coming 4-5 weeks.......
Buttons and Nitro
Thumper and Nitro
Buttons and Thumper's pups should be due at the very end of May.
As Nitro is not red factored then both of these litters will only have Black Tri and Blue Merle pups.
Virginia and Blue
Breeding about May will be.........
Bambi and Blue
Piper and Nitro
The above breedings will be the only breedingss of 2016

Pet Puppy Prices........These vary on the individual pup based on confirmation, color of coat, color of eyes and the size of the pup.
We DO NOT ship these babies and we meet all new puppy people in person.
We raise our puppies to be excellent companions in pet homes. We do not want to see them in a potentially bad breeding enviroment so we do not sell to breeders. When seeking a breeding animal in a puppy there cannot be any guarantee that that pup is going to be breeding quality when it reaches breeding age as some things cannot be determined at 8 weeks such as adult confirmation, adult bite, earset, decended testicles, breeding ability, breeding desire among other things. If you would like a breeding dog with guaranteed abilities and qualities then please seek out a proven adult with those qualities. Please only choose to get a pup if you are looking for a forever friend to love!! Please remember, that a dog is only with us for about 15 years and that is only a part of our lives, but to your dog - you will be his or her WHOLE life!!
Please read our new Important Info Page before contacting us about puppies!!!
Heres a cool link to tell the adult weight of a pup based on pup weight http://www.puppychart.com/
Just a little info on how things are done around here - All the pups are born beside our bed-usually starting about 2am till about 6am : ) Sometimes, just to mess with us, we will have 2 girls having pups at the same time - now thats a fun night!! All the pups are raised in our living room -yep, some mornings its a bit stinky but it all cleans!! These dogs are all our pets and they live on our couch - and sometimes they even share it with us : )
Erik and I both work from home so we are available by phone or email most anytime. Just give us a call anytime - 540-789-7898
Also, if you have desires to become a backyard breeder or own a pet shop - dont ever call us.
Thank you so much for visiting our site, KC & Erik
Deposits hold pups till they are ready for their new homes. Deposit amount is $300 by paypal or check. Cash for balance is due at time of pickup or meeting.
These babies are only sold as pets and are to be spayed or neutered at the appropriate age. Limited registration papers will be issued after proof of spay/neuter. These babies deserve the best and I will not have them end up in puppy mills!! Thank you for your understanding.
Sales Tax- If you live in Virginia or if you live in another state and come to Virginia to get a puppy from me here in Virginia I have to charge Virginia State Sales Tax of 5.3%.
I reserve the right to refuse to sell any puppy at any point in time for any reason and return all money to potential buyer.
Drop me an email or give me a call if you have any questions or need more info on any of these little guys.
As always, if you are within the surrounding states or DC area we make every effort to meet new pup owners halfway :) Of course, new puppy people are always welcome to come here and meet the whole gang in person. Just give me a call to set up an appointment.
Thanks for visiting the Unleashed website, KC
Below is information on the genetic testing that we have done on our dogs. Please feel free to call anytime if you would like to discuss genetic testing or anything else about these guys.
MDR1 testing does not seem to be a tool that's working as there have been many reactions in dogs that have been tested and found to be totally negative for this gene. We are going back to the old school of thought which is - treat every Aussie with only the drugs that are found to be safe for dogs with the MDR1 gene.
As for Heartworms and flea prevention I recommend Interceptor/Sentinal IN THE PROPER DOSE FOR THE DOGS CURRENT WEIGHT.
Avoid Ivemectrin in Aussies!!!!!!!!
All of the dogs we have here have been tested for PRCD. All the pups that we have will never develop PRA (PRCD) Alot of people ask what that means.....
(Progressive Retinal Atrophy form Progressive Rod Cone Degeneration). Disease causes degeneration of retinal cells. Firstly, rods are affected and night blindness develops in the animal. Later, cones degenerate. That results in complete blindness of the animal as young adults.
All of the dogs we have here have been tested for and are clear of HC. All the pups that we have are clear for HC (Hereditary Cataracts) Alot of people ask what that means.....
Cataracts are a clouding of lens of the eye caused by a breakdown of tissue in the eye. This generally results in an inability to see clearly, and can cause total blindness. In canines, mutations that result in cataracts can be passed to offspring and is known as Hereditary Cataracts (HC), Juvenile Cataracts (JC) or Early Onset cataracts (EOC). A mutation in the HSF4 gene causes this type of cataracts in several breeds of dogs. In this case, the dog is typically affected bilaterally with both eyes affected by the disease. The cataracts associated with HSF4 also occur in the posterior region of the lens. They usually begin small and grow progressively, though the speed of growth is highly variable. Some cataracts will grow so slowly that the dog's vision remains relatively clear, while others will grow such that the dog will quickly go blind. Corrective surgery is possible, though it is costly and is not always effective. One HSF4 mutation causes the recessive form of HC in Boston Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, and French Bulldogs. Because it is recessive, a dog must have two copies of this mutation to experience this form of cataracts. This mutation is only responsible for early-onset HC, which typically occur between 12 months and 3 years of age in Staffordshires, and between 2-3 years in Boston Terriers. Boston Terriers can also be afflicted by late-onset HC; however, the HSF4 gene mutation is not responsible for that particular form of cataracts. A separate mutation of the HSF4 gene is responsible for HC in Australian Shepherds. This mutation affects Aussies differently, in that the disease is dominant, but not completely penetrant. This means that only one copy of the mutation is necessary to predispose a dog to the disease, however, incomplete penetrance means that a dog that has this mutation will not always develop HC. Research suggests that the mutation makes a dog 12 times more likely to develop posterior bilateral cataracts at some point in their lifetime. It is likely that a secondary gene interaction occurs in the small percentage of dogs possessing the HC mutation but do not develop cataracts, however, this interaction is not yet know. It is important to note that not all cataracts are hereditary. Cataracts can also be caused by old age or injury. Also, cataracts that occur in different regions of the lens can also be familial, but not necessarily attributed to this gene mutation.
