Sweet Tea had a small litter this time around with only 2 puppies born--one red tri male (SOLD) and one blue merle female (SOLD). Puppies are expected to be ready for their new homes by December 18, 2021. We do not breed very often and our puppies are often reserved before they are 8 weeks old. Puppies are sold with a limited registration meaning that breeding rights are not included. Breeding rights may be considered at an additional fee depending on the merits of the individual pup
Sweet Tea is registered with American Stock Dog Registry (ASDR) and Jingle (Sire) is dual-registered with ASDR and NSDR. Puppies will come with a registration certificate which requires a small fee when sent in with name request. Past puppies have been successfully registered AKC as Miniature American Shepherd, but will likely be under size.
Our puppies include a 2-year health guarantee for genetic diseases. Both the sire and dam have had full genetic health testing and puppies are clear by parentage. Although both parents have tested Normal/Normal for MDR1, we suggest not using ivermectin-based heartworm medications for all herding/collie breeds. There are alternatives that work just as well such as Interceptor. Puppies are priced from $1000 - 2500 depending on the individual puppy. Breeding rights are an additional $500.
A $500 non-refundable deposit will reserve your puppy. Placing a deposit indicates that you have read and agree to the contract.
We realize this is a significant financial investment. Bringing a new family member home is a big decision and should not be taken lightly. We do accept Paypal and Zelle.
For serious inquiries, we will allow in-home puppy visits when they are 4 weeks of age.
If you have already reserved your puppy, you are welcome to visit your puppy with a pre-arranged appointment. No other pets are allowed and we ask that you come with clean shoes, clothes, etc. to minimize puppies exposure to other dog germs.

This little guy is very people-oriented. He will be a velcro dog...always stuck by your side. After being worn out by a play session he always wants to cuddle up. See video below of this puppy in action. Very friendly and outgoing.
He loves to play and follows us around everywhere.

The whole crew
The red tri male figured it out pretty quickly. Tipsy (blue merle female) figured it out just a few minutes after I stopped filming. It will take several more days of training before they will come running down. This video also gives a good look at coloration and size. Puppies are raised with our family of 3 cats and 3 dogs.
We carefully monitor the growth of puppies over the 8 weeks they are with us.

Jette is a really mild-mannered puppy. Right in the middle of the hierarchy. He looks so much like his dad and is super soft. I expect he may end up with a little wave in his coat like his dad.
