For any of you following along in regards to our Aussie/Aussalier journey, you may remember my post back in April about our plans for the future.
(Here’s the post if anyone is interested and missed it.)
As I mentioned in the post, I had originally contacted Oakley’s breeder in my first attempts to add another female Australian Shepherd to the family. I was third on her waiting list (yes, we breeders have to go through the same waiting process as you do) for a blue merle female, but her pregnant mamma dog did not end up having enough female blues for all of us on her list. But she did tell me she had a couple other possibly pregnant moms that would be due later. I was willing to wait.
I was just getting ready to contact her last week to see how things were going when I got an email from her saying she had two brand new blue merle females born and I had first pick!
There were actually two litters, with one girl in each. They were both beautifully marked puppies, one a bit bigger than the other. The were both sired by the same male, so I also looked over the pictures she had of the mother dogs. And finally decided on the bigger one with a bit more black on it.
So this wee baby will be joining the family in a couple months!
Another fun fact, she is closely related to Oakley!💙
