Agape Aussies has been a small hobby kennel since 1982. We are located in the "Fruit Belt" region of Western New York. Our aussies are AKC( American Kennel Club) and ASCA (Australian Shepherd Club of America) registered. We are officially recognized by the AKC as a Breeder of Merit.
Our breeding dogs are selected for temperament and soundness. Both the sire and dam of any litter has to be certified CERF (clear of eye defects) and OFA and/or PennHIP (clear of hip dysplasia). Puppies are raised in our home so we can carefully watch personalities develop to aid in determining their placement.
Every puppy is sold with a written guarantee of their health and freedom from hereditary defects. We evaluate and determine Pet/Companion or Breeding/Show quality throughout their young lives. Overall structure and movement are primary. This cannot be estimated until 7-8 weeks of age.
Companion puppies are sold with a Spay/Neuter Contract. These puppies can make great performance dogs but are not eligible for conformation showing or breeding. Companion puppies are sold with a Spay/Neuter Contract and Limited Registration papers.
Show/Breeding puppies are sold with all guarantees that it is free of any show ring disqualifying faults in addition to the health and hereditary defect guarantee. Owners receive full registration papers and are sold on co-ownership under private contract. No puppy is sold for breeding purposes only!
