No, no, I don't think she lied. Honestly there is no good about lying when you have fair ratings. Fair is one step above you-have-bad-hips. The beauty of OFA is you can look up the dogs on the OFFA website.

OH! Sorry, I thought you meant she said it was something completely different that a "good, fair, excellent, bad" type rating, like "1, 2 , 3 .." or something silly like that lol Sorry I misunderstood.

Now I see what you are saying and that again is a really good point. I'll let my sister know. I missed that when I read over it initially and i think she did as well.

If you look as well, they did a father/daughter breeding to get the one female they're breeding. Really don't like that, though some don't mind, it's not a selling feature to me. That female is the one with the poor conformation too, not something I'd use for breeding. And having the three sizes but not really identifying or separating them.

I also don't like that the dogs that they must have had in the past are not mentioned in a 'past dogs' or 'retired' area on the website, does she still have them or were they sold when she didn't need them for breeding? Another personal 'not my liking' thing...

Not a rare breed, you can certainly look for other breeders.

I know this thread is a little old, but I'm going to comment on the poor structure and conformation of all the dogs posted on the site. They're not particularly good looking dogs, to say the least.

You definitely could do much better.

The odd thing is if you go to the brags page, the dogs there are much nicer. Not sure why they aren't used for breeding. Although many are still high in the rear they aren't as bad as the one female.

They're claiming to breed a size variety of the Australian Shepherd, how much more of a red flag than that do you need?

If someone wants a small herding dog that looks like an Aussie but is more likely to be 20-30 pounds get a Mini American Shepherd or North American Shepherd don't support those breeders who claim something that is not true.

I'm not defending that particular breeder, but the Mini American Shepherd and the Mini Australian Shepherd are pretty much the same dog. I don't understand condemning one and not the other, though I do understand not liking a breeder.

I think she was talking about them breeding Toy Australian Shepherds.

There is nothing particularly attractive about this breeder to me and I agree with the others, there are definitely some red flags. They don't seem to know much about structure or breed type- overall I am just "meh" on them. I don't really see any reason to go with them specifically.
