Our Policy...


We are not a puppy mill and we strive to keep our kennels clean and sanitary for our Mini Aussies.  We do not want to hide our kennel but instead encourage prospective buyers to visit at least once.  We have had visitors come several times before they decided to purchase one of our Mini Aussie puppies.  We have also had visitors who came just to see our dogs and learn what the breed is like knowing that they had no intention to buy a puppy.  We don't care about your reason to visit and we are not a hard pressure sale.  Just come...we love to share this wonderful breed of dog with everyone!


You will be getting a healthy well adjusted Mini Aussie companion, a health certificate, your puppy's vaccination and worming records, paperwork to register your Mini Aussie, and a one year guarantee that your Mini Aussie will be free of major genetic defect that hinders the intended use of your puppy.

Your Mini Aussie puppy will have had it's tail docked and dew claws removed surgically by our vet.  We do not band tails for docking.

We try to ensure every Mini Aussie puppy we sell goes to a "forever home".  On occasion we realize that certain circumstances may arise that require an owner to give up their Mini Aussie.  For those owners who purchase from us, we offer a free adoption listing service on our website to help you find a quality replacement home.  

It is one of our goals to keep every one of our puppies out of county shelters, Mini Aussie rescues, or from being homeless.  As a responsible breeder, we find this commitment of equal importance as our commitment of providing happy, healthy, and sound Mini Aussies.


You will receive paperwork to register your puppy with the appropriate kennel club.  You are required to use the first part of the kennel name, “AP RANCH”, as the first portion of your Mini Aussies’ registered name.  You will choose the remainder of the name.

All of our dogs are registered with one or more of the following kennel clubs ~ MASCA ,NAMASCUSA, NSDR, and ASDR.


Available Mini Aussies will be listed as "For Sale".  Once a deposit has been received  on a particular puppy the status will change to "On Hold".  Once a puppy has been paid for in full the status will then change to "Sold".   All Mini Aussies appear to have blue eyes at birth.  Tri colored dogs that may carry the BET gene (recessive gene for blue eyes or green eyes) will be marked as price "pending" until eye color can be determined.  


Once we receive a deposit on your Mini Aussie, we will e-mail you a contract for purchase which must be returned along with the balance of all monies due before you may pick up your Mini Aussie or have it shipped.



You will be required to spay or neuter your Mini Aussie by the time your puppy reaches six months of age. 


All puppies sold will be on limited registration no exceptions, I only place my puppies in excellent pet homes not for breeding purposes.

Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe, we are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made."
