All puppies will come with either Full or Limited ASDR registration rights.
(Limited meaning Non-breeding rights or pet rights)
Puppies can leave our home after they have been to our vet for their health check and 1st puppy combination vaccination. With Toy puppies, that can be between 8 -12 weeks old. I have found that some Toy puppies need a little extra time, so the length of time I keep them will be at my discretion.
We require a $300 Non-Refundable deposit to hold your puppy, with the balance due in CASH on pick up day of your puppy. We do not accept checks.
4.5% SD sales tax is included in the price of the puppy.
Please Note: Deposits are Non-Refundable
Puppies will have tails docked and dewclaws removed by 3 days of age.
Puppies are vaccinated with NeoPar (single-way Parvo) at 5 weeks.
1st puppy combo vaccination of the 3 vaccine series and health check is done by my Veterinarian.
If I feel a puppy is not quite ready to go to their new home by 8 weeks, and if I keep him/her longer, I may give the 2nd puppy vaccination.
Puppies will be regularly dewormed.
Puppies are microchipped prior to leaving, with the information provided for new owner to register the microchip online.
We reserve the right to refuse business to anyone for any reason at our discretion.
Should we feel that a puppy is not a good fit for someone, we reserve the right to refuse the sale and if a deposit has been placed, it will be returned.
This decision will not be taken lightly, as our responsibility is to our puppies, dogs and family.
As a Thank You , each puppy we be sent home with a PUPPY PACKAGE!

We genetic test our adult dogs through Animal Genetics or they may be parent qualified through their parents
Cindy Leeper guarantees that you will receive a pure bred Mini Aussie or Toy Aussie. It is the buyers responsibility to provide ongoing preventative care: vaccinations, deworming, heart worm medication, flea/tick prevention, microchip registration, etc.
We are not responsible for Parvo, Distemper, Kennel Cough or Corona Virus, as these are highly contagious diseases and can be transmitted immediately after leaving the breeder.
We do NOT guarantee against Coccidiosis, Giardia, or worms.
*Coccidea is a bacterial infection brought on by stress and diet change.
*Giardia is an infection brought on by infected drinking water.
*Worms recycle often, and it is very important to maintain a good worming program.
There are certain disorders that may be caused by environmental factors, (Allergies, Thyroid Dysfunction, Ear Mites, Demodectric Mange) that are not covered by the breeder.
We are can not be responsible for Hypoglycemia, (low blood sugar) or the effects of a stress related illness due to travel or rehoming.
- Puppy is sold as PET QUALITY.
- We offer no guarantee that the puppy could or could not have faults, which could make it unsuitable for showing or breeding. We do not guarantee the ability of the puppies to reproduce.
- Breeder does not guarantee the adult size of puppy, temperament, conformation, or coat or eye color when fully grown, and can only offer our educated guess.
- We do not guarantee ear set, sometimes when puppies teethe, ears may “prick” and come back down. There is a glue that I can recommend to help train ears to say down. Although some folks like the “prick” ears.
We do not offer shipping of our puppies, the buyer needs to come to our home for pick up.
Your puppy is going home to a brand new environment. Any change to the puppy’s diet and stress can cause him/her to have hypoglycemia or diarrhea. Your puppy could experience a lack of appetite during this transition time as well and may have some anxiety due to change in environment.
Especially with a Toy, you need to make sure they eat properly.
Since a puppy can stress when it goes to a new environment, I highly recommend a product called Nutra Cal, to have on hand. It is especially helpful with the Tiny Toy Aussies when they go to a new home. I will be including this in my Toy puppy packages
Under no circumstances will breeder be responsible for ANY type of veterinary bills, medical bills, legal liabilities or transportation charges. These costs are the buyers sole responsibility.
We do not require that new owners continue feeding the food that we use, however, we do ask that you introduce a new food to your puppy gradually over a week or so.
We will supply at least a week’s worth of puppy food that the puppy is used to eating when he /she goes to their new home
Transitioning to a new home is already stressful on a puppy, so we strongly feel this is NOT the time to also introduce new food. A complete food change can be disruptive to your puppy’s immature digestive system and can result in diarrhea when not done properly.
We also recommend that you NOT take your new puppy to pet stores, dog parks, etc. until the puppy has had the full series of vaccinations. Puppies are not fully vaccinated until 16-20 weeks of age.
