We would first like to thank Brittany with Hillside Australian Shepherds for seeing the mating compatibility between Roxy and Smarty. It is always important that we look at temperament first, conformation second, markings and then of course comparing OFA's Annual Eye Certs and the genetics for mating compatibility. It was the perfect match. Even though Smarty has proven him self already as a stock dog, Roxy is our farm dog where this is her job, in protecting our den. The breeder pick from this mating combination was "Aspen Hills Land Slides Snow Covered Hills "Charlie Boy" who will follow in his fathers WTCH Little Spot Smartly Painted "Smarty" to accomplish his herding titles with Dawna Sims down at PSR after he turns one years old. In the meantime, we will be getting down his solid sits, downs and stays. for an easier transition for Dawna.
We would also like to thank Pat Lambeth for her support and entrusting one of her dogs into our overall breeding program with our small kennel. Pat's HOF Kennel is in California called Little Spot who breeds stock dogs capable in many areas. Smarty has earned his WTCH, STDs, STDc, STDd, OTDs, OTDd, ATDs, RN, RA, OTDC, ATDd an ATDc and his Rally Advanced title as well. The puppies from this crossing are perfect for the family looking for a performance dog to compete or a dog for an active family and lifestyle.
