Tara is now retired, living the life of leisure on the farm.  She has given me many wonderful puppies.  Her pups are now in the show ring, agility field and certified therapy dogs at our area hospitals.  Very proud of all my families and the hard work they have done with their Tara & Buddy babies.  I have kept a daughter (Bonnie) who will continue her parents bloodlines and great personalities. 

Scarlett, also known asTara the Terrorist,is a lovely addition to our aussie family. She will be the forever girlfriend to Buddy and our newest show dog star.  I believe that Tara & Buddy will create beautiful puppies and the foundation lines to our breeding program.

Tara was evaluated by Pat Hastings with a solid score of 3.5 and 4's.  Pat said that Tara had the qualities we needed to move forward in setting our type as a new AKC breed.
