WHERE BEAUTY, GRACE & PURPOSE BEGINS...
Welcome to our home on the web dedicated to our wonderful pack of
Australian Shepherds & Miniature American Shepherds.
Good temperament and disposition are very important to us because many of our pups go to homes where they must live with children and other animals. Many of our puppies also go to a variety of service homes. We have puppies as search and rescue, seizure detection, autism support, allergy detection, emotional support, MS support, diabetes detection, and PTSD support.
We are happy to recommend a few trainers to work with and recommend for the training that fits you needs.
We always strive to produce a level-headed Shepherd (no matter the size) that will excel in any situation, but also have the "off" switch when it’s time to come inside the home. Our Shepherds are extremely intelligent and loyal pets that have fantastic abilities for the highest level of any performance need!
We believe in a healthy pet more than anything and health testing is done on all of our breeding dogs as they become old enough.
These tests include OFA, CERF, PRA/prcd, HC (hsf4), DM and MDR1.
We feed the highest quality food available; so we can ensure you the healthiest pup possible. Be sure to check out our premium pet food page to learn more about the food we feed and why we always recommend it.
Please take a look around and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have about these wonderful dogs.
Please note ALL of our dogs are registered with AKC and/or ASCA.
We do NOT breed doodle mixes of any kind. We strive to maintain and preserved the Purebred breed of Australian Shepherds and Miniature American Shepherds to the highest of breed standards.

If you are looking for a Blue Merle Female with Blue Eyes, you will either be waiting a while and need to have patience or you will need to find another breeder. I do not sell puppies based solely on color. Temperament, size, and fit for your family should be the most important thing when welcoming a new puppy into your home. I am sorry to say this, but I can not put in orders. Mother Nature is in charge of what is produced and a good dog is NEVER a bad color. (My favorite is a Black Tri, so i get loving a color), but I have been doing this a long time, and i am usually pretty good about what my litters will produce temperament wise, but each puppy has their own personality. Color should not be most important to you. Please note I do not say any of this with anyone specific person in mind, but I produce these pups because of my love and passion for the breed. Not to make an extra $ Dollar. I want my puppies to find the best homes possible regardless of color.
We look forward to welcoming you into our Copper Sky Family
