|Our Aussie and Pup Information
We are a small farm, not a fancy kennel. We raise sheep, cattle, (and various other farm animals), our Aussies go
horseback riding and camping with us. They are part of the daily hustle and bustle of farm life. Don't be surprised if you
come to visit and are greeted by a big group of Aussies. I started out in the early 90's with a couple of Aussies that were
NSDR registered. These were just farm/companion dogs. After about 10 years I decided that I wanted to breed for locals
to have farm/companion dogs as well since there were not many Aussies in this area. As time went by I decided I would
like to show and compete in stock trials, agility, and conformation. NSDR does not have a venue for shows so I elected to
get AKC/ASCA registered Aussies. I have been around several different bloodlines and have decided that I want the most
versatile Aussie that I could find, so I elected to go with the Aussies that were bred more for work than for show. Most of
my dogs are from proven working bloodlines with a little show blood here and there. Most of mine are not happy go lucky,
love anyone they meet type Aussies (with an exception of one or two). They are wary of strangers at first but warm up
quickly (as per the breed standard). They are smart, I don't have to watch them like a hawk when they are out with the
horses for fear they will get stepped on. I also don't have to worry about them wandering off as they stick to my side and
make sure that they know where I'm at, at all times. I also enjoy the fact that they play frisbee (some of the girls think they
are too good for it), and love my kids. They all get along together for the most part with a few spats occasionally nothing
Most of our Aussies are full-sized around 18-21 inches, we do have a couple smaller sized females and occasionally we
will have puppies out of them (THESE ARE NOT MINI Americans). All of our dogs are registered AKC most AKC/ASCA.
We have several that are American Kennel Club (AKC) and Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA). All Pups Sold
must have 'DreamWinds' in front of their registered names.
We strive to produce the best puppy possible. We are still new to breeding so we are learning all the time but we do our
best to produce the ideal puppy. Puppies are sold up-to-date on shots and wormings. Their tails are docked (if not natural
bobtail). Our pups are raised eating Purina Puppy Chow Healthy Morsels.
We take pride in our puppies. I stay up all night making sure everything goes smoothly. Our dogs are our pets, we treat
them like they are our children and want the best homes for their puppies. They are raised inside for their first 3 weeks in
a high-traffic area of our home, where they are cuddled & played with constantly. Then they are introduced to the outside
environment and live on our farm so they may experience seeing cats, other dogs, horses, and sheep: fresh air, sunshine
& exercise. We do this in order for them to be well socialized, rounded individuals who will be suitable not only as a pet
but also as a working/farm dog that will be very versatile for your needs.
Please let me know what type of dog you are looking for so that I can better fit you with a puppy that might meet your
requirements. For Example: Some of our dogs produce better working/herding dogs than others. All of our puppies should
be suitable as pets and may or may not meet the breed standard, no guarantee is made.
PRICES: We have had several people balk at the prices on our pups: We price them according to the genetic tests and
titles that the parents have achieved. We want to produce a pup that is versatile, biddable, healthy, and a great pet first
and foremost. We aim to produce a dog that is willing to do whatever you ask it to do. We have tried to eliminate all health
problems from our lines so that you do not have to spend thousands of dollars later down the road fixing a problem, in
doing so these tests and trials cost a lot of money and we try to ensure that the dogs support themselves as this is not just
a hobby for us and we wish to continue doing this for several years.
PLEASE NOTE: We ask for at least 2 days notice before coming to pick up your puppy if you have placed a
deposit. We schedule this time so that we may give the puppy a bath and have him/her ready for you since
they do stay outside after they are 3-4 weeks old and do love to get dirty.
We will require a deposit of $200 to hold a puppy. ALL DEPOSITS MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY A SIGNED
CONTRACT. Deposit contracts are usually found on the puppy sale page but if it is not we will provide this contract when
you contact us regarding the purchase of one of our puppies. We cannot hold a puppy until we have received a deposit
and contract. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable, except in the case of illness, injury, or death of a puppy
prior to the puppy leaving DreamWind Aussies. Once you have committed to buying a puppy from us we allow 3 to 5 days
from that date to get the deposit to us, Overnight or 2 day shipping is recommended. If we have not received the deposit
by the 5th day then we will allow the next person in line to place a deposit on the puppy and your deposit will be refunded
to you if it arrives after the 5th day. **The reason that we ask this is because a lot of our puppies have multiple people
wanting to buy them and it is not fair to either us or the potential owners to wait for a deposit that may or may not show up
and lose potential owners in the process.**
By 8 weeks of age, any remaining balance is due in full, whether the puppy is to be picked up that week or not, at this time
you will have one week to pay the balance in full or you will forfeit your deposit and the puppy will be placed back up for
sale. Payment for puppies over 8 weeks of age must be made in full.
No partial payments/deposits will be accepted on puppies over 8 weeks of age. ONLY DEPOSITS may be made with a
personal check & only when pickup is estimated to be more than 10 days from the receipt of deposit. All other payments
(including final payment) must be made by cash or money order.
We will NO LONGER ACCEPT check payments at puppy pickup. Please make sure that you have cash or money order if
you are making final payment at pick up.
We will accept your U.S.Postal Service money order.

appropriate size on the spot & buyer will be responsible for these charges & any additional airline fees.

good health (internal, external parasites, and kennel cough excluded) you must notify us within 48 hours with a written

registration papers to the breeder. A refund will be given only upon receipt of the report from a licensed veterinarian. The
breeder is not responsible for any expenses incurred.

Your new puppy is guaranteed to be free from congenital defects making him unsuitable as a pet for 1 year from the date
of birth. If your puppy is found to have life threatening congenital defects you must supply us within 7 days of diagnosis
with your veterinarian's written report. We also guarantee pups for up to 5 years of age to pass OFA hips and eye exams.

Your puppy has been on a de-worming and vaccination schedule when you receive it. It is very important that you provide
this information to your veterinarian immediately. Worming and vaccinations, including yearly boosters, must continue on
a regular basis, puppy must not have been bred, or guarantee is void.
The buyer agrees to take good care of the puppy and provide adequate food, water, housing, and medical care. The
buyer agrees to follow the breeder’s recommendations regarding feeding, exercise, and general care.
Remember, puppies are babies also! They need plenty of love, rest, fresh water, quality puppy food, a warm and dry
place to sleep, and exercise.
Under no circumstances should you ever surrender your dog to an animal shelter! If you should ever find yourself in a
situation where you cannot keep your Aussie, and you cannot find a suitable, loving home for them, we ask that you
contact us for help with placement of your Aussie in another home. If necessary, we will gladly come to pick them up and
provide a loving home for them until they can be placed elsewhere.
All of our puppies are sold as farm/family dogs. No guarantee is made as to disposition, conformation, or breeding ability.
We have given your puppy lots of love, care, and attention. He/she will need the same attention from you.
Breeder is bound by this agreement to original buyer only.
