Our goals are to share our love and passion for Australian Shepherds while improving the breed by genetically screening our parent dogs, registering our puppies through AKC and ASDR, as well as following Puppy Culture Protocols.
Welcome to Spring Rose Aussies
Spring Rose Aussies LLC is dedicated to bettering the Australian Shepherd breed by responsible breeding. We are proud members of American Kennel Club (AKC), American Stock Dog Registry (ASDR), and Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA) since 2019 and counting. These affiliated organizations advocate for purebred dogs as family companion, advance health and well-being by following pedigrees, and work towards promoting responsible dog ownership.
All of our parent dogs are tested through PawPrint Genetics before being incorporated into our breeding program, this is a way we can further invest into the breed and ensure the health and wellbeing of all of our upcoming puppies.
We also follow guidelines from Puppy Culture Protocols to ensure all of our puppies are neurologically stimulated, socialized, and building their confidence before we send them on their way to their new homes.

Australian Shepherds as a breed
The Australian Shepherd, a lean, tough ranch dog, that can be closely associated with the cowboy's herding dog of choice or a great family-focused dog. They are a medium-sized worker with a keen, penetrating gaze in the eye. Aussie coats offer different looks, including merle (a mottled pattern with contrasting shades of blue or red). In all ways, they're the picture of rugged and agile movers of stock. Aussies exhibit an irresistible impulse to herd, anything: birds, dogs, kids. This strong work drive can make Aussies too much dog for a sedentary pet owner. Aussies are remarkably intelligent, quite capable of hoodwinking an unsuspecting novice owner. In short, this isn't the pet for everyone. But if you're looking for a brainy, tireless, and trainable partner for work or sport, your search might end here.
