Welcome to WIND RIVER AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERDS previously located in Boulder, Wyoming - beneath the majestic Wind River Mountains in Western Wyoming.
We are now located in beautiful Meridian, Idaho, which was 'built for business and designed for living' and is also known as the 'Center of the Treasure Valley'.
WIND RIVER AUSSIES features the GEARHART and 'MISTRETTA Hall of Fame Excellent Kennel' bloodlines, with selective outcrosses. Our dogs are well balanced of moderate size, with strong, rich, clear coat color. Masculinity and femininity are well defined in our dogs. Our Aussies have strong herding and guardian instincts and are exceptional companions. They are versatile, easily trained and perform their tasks with enthusiasm and great style. Our dogs are well socialized starting at a young age and per character will be reserved with strangers but do not exhibit shyness. Natural bob tails, blue eyes and copper trim are common in our dogs.
The dogs we breed will be tested for genetic issues and must be free of any hereditary disorders either via parentage or through testing. Testings include OFA/PENNHip, MDR1, Hereditary Cataract Mutation, CEA/CH and prcd/PRA. CERF exams are done annually by a certified Veterinarian Ophthalmologist. OFA's must be excellent or good.
WIND RIVER Australian Shepherds have been placed in the United States, Canada, Finland and France.
WIND RIVER AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERDS is a registered kennel with the Australian Shepherd Club of America.
Thank you for visiting our website and we hope you enjoy viewing our dogs as much as we enjoy them.
