(Although we have tried to optimize this page for quick loading it may be slow to load due to the pictures of the pups - sometimes up to five (5) minutes on a 56.6Kbps modem. Please be patient as it is well worth the wait.)
The puppies described on this website and page are "Pure Bred" Blue Australian Cattle Dog puppies only - Not "Pedigreed" Blue Australian Cattle Dog puppies! See our glossary to define and clarify this Term - Click Here.
Although I do make reference in their parents genealogy (lineage) to them being from "Pedigree Australian Cattle Dog Stock" I have no way of being able to prove this to you at present apart from directing you to the owner of the dogs father (grandfather of the puppies), which I am more than happy to do on request.
As I stated above they are Pure Bred Blue Australian Cattle Dog puppies and Not Pedigreed Australian Cattle Dog puppies.
Some Background History
Chloe - the bitch:
General: "Chloe" is an integral part of our family and an excellent guard dog for my business premises and running companion for my wife 'Kim' who is a professional athlete (boxer). Unless she knows you as family or we are around and have accepted you, you will not get into our yard - let alone get out. That is her job.
She is one of the best I have had the privilege to care for over the past 35 years of my involvement with this extremely loyal and faithful breed.
She has a playful, loving, friendly and caring nature for her family and
friends of the family and she is absolutely great with kids - although I
never fully trust ANY dog with little kids. She has had kids from the ages
of toddlers through to teenagers around her all the time and has never
bitten any of them let alone growled etc. She has been excellent.
Markings: "Chloe" has a large dark barely distinguishable body patch stretching from the middle of her shoulders down the right side of her body to her leg and on the left hand side of her neck reaching up to and joining up with her dark head markings. She also has a patch at the base of her tail and on her tail.
She has very tan, tan markings on her legs, chest and head. She is a very dark "Blue" to "Black" colour with with a limited white fleck throughout her coat. She has short to medium length coat hair. See the photo below and on the "More Pictures" page for more in depth details.
Other: "Chloe" does venture out the front of our "in town" residence but does not wander far and usually returns within a short time IF she gets the chance to get out and/or when she is called. This is more a female "bitch" trait than it is "Chloe's" trait. Bitches do not tend to wander much and if they do they don't usually wander far.
As I have lived in Echuca since 1979 and have known various breeders in the district I believe several of the Red ACD's in "Chloe's" background may have been pedigreed but am not 100% certain of this. Anyway this is beside the point as both her parents were not pedigreed and therefore she is only a pure bred Blue Australian Cattle Dog - not a pedigreed Australian Cattle Dog.
Father - Pure bred Blue ACD; (Grandfather - Pure bred Blue ACD; Grandmother - Pure bred Blue ACD)
Mother - Pure bred Red ACD; (Grandfather - Pure bred Red ACD; Grandmother - Pure bred Red ACD)
Rowdy - the dog:
General: "Rowdy" is a working dog "in training" with his owner/master Dean Oliver and his father Denny on their horse-breaking and cattle ranch situated in Echuca Village - just outside Echuca.
Nature: I found "Rowdy" to be a very manageable and friendly dog both times they were mated. I picked him up, transported him and kept him for a day or two before returning him myself. I found him to be responsive, good natured and in fact offered to purchase him myself the first time (but alas). He was also a great guard dog with a "big scary bark".
Markings: Apart from a patch covering his left eye and partly on the left side of his head he has no other body patches. "Rowdy" has the expected and standard tan markings on his head, chest and legs and is a silvery "blue" colour with a short to medium length haired coat. See the photo below and on the "More Pictures" page for more in depth details.
Genealogy: "Rowdy's" bloodlines are from the BrettCliff Pedigree line unless noted. "Rowdy" himself has no papers as his mother was pure bred and not pedigreed.
Father - Pedigreed Blue; (Grandfather - Pedigreed Blue Australian Champion ACD; Grandmother - Pedigreed Blue ACD)
Mother - Purebred Red ACD (Not BrettCliff line); (Grandfather - Pedigreed Blue ACD; Grandmother - Pedigreed Blue ACD)
The General Litter Details
This is the third litter from my bitch "Chloe" and the second litter in a row to Dean Oliver's dog, "Rowdy". "Chloe" is 5 going on 6 this year and "Rowdy" is 2 going on 3. The dog we used for the first litter "Dozer" is now deceased. "Dozer" was a full brother to "Rowdy".
We decided to use "Rowdy" again due to the quality Australian Cattle Dog (ACD) pups that the mating produced last time. I have seen several of the dogs and they have turned out fantastic although as yet I do not have any pictures or video footage of the grown pups from the second litter, only of the first litter.
References: I do have the phone numbers or other contact details of most of the purchasers of the Australian Cattle Dog puppies (ACDs) from both of the previous litter/s and can supply them on request.
This litter of ACD puppies proved yet again to be an evenly mixed litter of eight (8) in total, dogs and bitches. They have all shown very good to excellent "type" and overall so far the best markings of any of the litters.
Only one of these Pure Bred Australian Cattle Dog (ACD) puppies had a body patch similar to the bitch "Chloe" generally they all only had a head patch and a tail or base of tail patch. See below for more details and descriptions.
All of the Australian Cattle Dog (ACD) puppies are barking at strangers (and have been for the last four weeks), are eating solids (such as dry puppy food and bones) and drinking by themselves (puppy milk and water). They have been weaned from their mother over the last four weeks.
All of the puppies have what some Australian Cattle Dog (ACD) fanciers term a "Bentley" mark on their foreheads to varying degrees. These are white stars or markings on their foreheads that are only apparent as they mature and darken in coat colour. When they are born they are all white except for their obvious dark patches and so the "Bentley" mark cannot be seen. They all have Tan markings - a "bow-tie" looking tan mark on their chest and Tan colouration on their legs.
If you do get the chance to view them in person you will be struck by the physical size of them as they are amongst the biggest Australian Cattle Dog (ACD) puppies you will find anywhere. There are two reasons for this - and our vet will confirm the first one for you - and that is: -
In fact a Vet from Mount Gambier SA (who purchased a bitch from the last litter) kindly informed me the weights of the pups were each on average over 600 grams or more heavier than the average puppy weight for a litter of Australian Cattle Dog (ACD) puppies. Only the runt was less being only around 250 grams heavier than the average puppy weight whilst the biggest pup was nearly 1.5 kgs bigger. Any wonder he drove over eight hours one way just to make sure he got the bitch he wanted!
That being said, I've seen two other fully grown Australian Cattle Dog (ACD) bitches - one from each litter past - and each one of them, apart from being beautiful dogs even if I do say so myself, meet the standard dimensions and markings for an Australian Cattle Dog bitch. Both were larger than average sized puppies.
Other Things We Offer And Do For You
As responsible breeders and lovers of the Australian Cattle Dog and because we are so confident in the quality of our Australian Cattle Dogs all of our puppies are sold with a Lifetime Genetic Defect Guarantee - see below or see the FAQs page.
As well as this, if for any reason and at any time in the future you need to give up your dog and find it a new home, just call us. We offer to take the dog back at no charge (or refund) and find it a new home. We guarantee we will not resell the dog for any more than our out-of-pocket expenses when we are doing this although usually we find a good home and give them the dog free. Depending on where you are situated we may also pick up the dog personally at no charge to you but at the worst you may have to pay the freight to transport the dog back to us. But don't get me wrong, you are not obliged to do this; you may find a good home yourself - this is just an added service we offer.
The Puppies' In Depth, Details And Photos
On this page you will find one photo of each of the parents and one photo of each puppy along with their puppy (temporary) name - my wife and kids like to name them all - and a brief description of the puppy. We've also tried to describe each puppies temperament and personality.
If you want to see more photos then CLICK HERE to go to the "More Pictures" page. You will find several more photos of each Blue Australian Cattle Dog puppy at different ages there.
Note: The descriptions of the puppies in the table below are as you look from the rear of the puppy to the front of the puppy i.e. from it's tail to it's nose.
(If only the words behind the picture/s are showing (i.e. no picture) then click the refresh button on your browser until it does show. This should eventually fix the problem.)
Of course all of our Purebred Blue Australian Cattle Dog puppies above will only be sold WITH a 6 week old vaccination and VET check by the Moama Veterinary Clinic, 61 Meninya Street, Moama, NSW. You can contact them by phone on 03-5480 6071 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org . Doug Black is the owner of the clinic and he can advise you which Veterinarian administered the vaccinations and conducted the check up.
Due to the time needed for the 6 week old vaccinations to "kick in" our Purebred Blue Australian Cattle Dog puppies are available for pick-up 11 days after their 6 weeks vaccination shots. Please see the FAQs page for the date of pickup of the current litter.
