The information you give us about your family and your expectations will help us to pick a puppy that is compatible with your life. We will also be happy to recommend books, training techniques and care for your dog, to help you really enjoy your best friend.
If you do not feel comfortable on the computer, you can call us and we can go over everything on the phone.
Rodeo N Pups is responsible for each and every puppy we produce, for their entire life. It is important for us to carefully find homes with the best chance of success and happiness, tailored for each individual puppy.
Please take the time to learn about health issues in the Miniature American Shepherd and visit the ASHGI site. Even with best intentions, careful planning and testing of litters, dogs can have every health issue that people have including epilepsy, eye disorders and hip dysplasia. We wish there were a way to breed every puppy to be free from genetic illness, but this is not possible. We can only do our best. We test all potential breeding prospects for multiple genetic defects before they enter the breeding program.
Our puppies are extremely loving, intelligent, versatile and loyal. They excel in agility, fly ball, Frisbee, most any activity-involving interaction with their owners. Their innate desire is to be with you, to protect you, your family, and your home, to please you and be your best friend. We look for homes where our dogs will be a part of the family. We do not sell to owners where our dogs will be yard dogs allowed to roam free. Do not betray this love by chaining them. Our puppies will become aggressive if mistreated in this way. They cannot protect while on a chain, which results in frustration and aggression. NEVER CHAIN A PUPPY!
