Puppy Vaccine Protocol
One week old, chubby pups!
I follow the Puppy Culture Method with all of my litters.
Stones River Miniature American Shepherds : Puppy Questionnaire
NOTE: As I receive MANY inquiries about my puppies throughout the year, I have found that having serious prospective puppy families fill out this form really helps me to keep track.
We will then have several conversations, getting to know each other's needs and expectations concerning your future family member.
2021 Breeding Schedule:
Sprout and Higgins had a beautiful litter of seven healthy pups on Dec 8, 2021
We have now started taking applications
Miniature American Shepherd puppies are curious, active and loving.
They need exercise and attention and patience, especially when young and unhousebroken.
Be sure that you are ready for a puppy!
A fenced yard (or immediate plans to get one) is a requirement to get one of these puppies! No exceptions.
There is a wait list.
A non refundable deposit will be required immediately after you fill out this form and you and I have a conversation over the phone to see if we agree on all terms.
The deposit will guarantee that I will do my best to offer
you a puppy from a certain litter or litters.
Everyone has been very happy with the pups that they've been offered.
: All breedings here have to meet certain criteria before taking place. The parents are fully health tested and temperaments and conformation are also taken into consideration. Please go to their individual pages to see information.
All of my puppies are sold as pet/companion with
no breeding rights
unless otherwise stated.
Puppies are evaluated by 8 weeks. I will have the first selections from these litters. Then I will offer a puppy to each home on the accepted wait (deposit required) list after taking into consideration the puppy's temperament and the preferences of the puppy parents. I choose the best home for the puppy. I want everyone to be very happy and for the puppy to have a lifetime home!
: I make myself available to new parents as needed, to make the transition a smooth one. We have a special Facebook group that is made up of our puppy parents only. Many of them are dog trainers and work in the veterinary field and are extremely helpful. Members are always training and share ideas with one another.
: They are litter box trained and well on their way to being house trained by the time they go to their new homes. They have been lovingly raised in my home.
The first few weeks the puppies stay in the "Puppy Room", safe and snug and with daily new toys and experiences such as
thunderstorm sound therapy
. They start sleeping and playing freely inside and out with the adults (supervised) after about 5 weeks. They learn from the pack that pottying outside is a very good choice! So they are familiar with stairs, ramps, several surfaces, crates, indoor X-pens, etc. They are used to the life of being a house dog.
Fill out this form and then text me at 615-476-1644 or message me on Facebook to ask more questions. If you call, please leave a message.
We are honored that you are interested in one of these puppies.
Thank you so much for your inquiry!
Tracy and the gang.

What attracted you to this breed?
How did you hear about us?
Please keep in mind that health and temperament tested, high quality, pure bred and puppy culture raised pups are not inexpensive. We spend a lot of time, money and effort breeding and cultivating this quality of puppy.
I understand and am personally and financially ready to bring my special puppy home as soon as possible.
I'm almost ready, but need more time and would like to be put on a contact list for future litters.
I'm just seeing what my options are and learning about the breed.
