ALL of your questions regarding Carolina's Puppies & the purchasing process will be answered here so be sure to read this page in its entirety then contact me when you are ready to place deposit on a puppy. In addition to caring for all of my dogs & puppies, marketing, booking flights, vet visits, transporting puppies via air travel, & allowing my local buyers to visit, I run parts and am the bookkeeper for our VERY busy diesel repair shop. Also on the schedule from April - October is at least 2 full evenings EVERY week for all the lawncare for 17 fenced yards, all measuring 1/4 - 1/2 acre in size, that house our dogs & puppies PLUS the acreage around the shop.
I like to keep the purchasing process FOR BOTH OF US as simple as possible so if you are a person that likes to complicate things that don't need to be complicated it will be best for you to make your selection elsewhere. I have responsibilities to you the buyer which I take VERY SERIOUS and have outlined in great detail here on my website. You the buyer have responsibilities in the purchasing process as well so BE SURE you: are ready to commit to purchase, have the funds available to do so, can comprehend the exercise needs of a puppy, do not have a trip planned to travel the world when the puppy you have chosen is ready for pickup or air travel, have permission from WHOMEVER you need permission from, such as a spouse, significant other, parents, landlord, or adult children, BEFORE you contact me.

Carolina has Penn Hip evaluation with NO EVIDENCE OF OSTEOARTHRITIS/HIP DYSPLASIA FOR EITHER HIP. She is DNA tested CLEAR for Collie Eye Anomaly, Cone Degeneration, Degenerative Myelopathy, Dilated Cardiomyopathy, Hereditary Cataracts, Hyperuricosuria, MDR1, Multifocal Retinopathy, Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis 6, & Progressive Retinal Atrophy/Progressive Rod Cone Degeneration. The Sire Wyatt has Penn Hip evaluation with NO EVIDENCE OF OSTEOARTHRITIS/HIP DYSPLASIA FOR EITHER HIP and is DNA tested clear for Collie Eye Anomaly, Cone Degeneration, Degenerative Myelopathy, Dilated Cardiomyopathy, Hereditary Cataracts, Hyperuricosuria, Multifocal Retinopathy, Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis 6, Progressive Retinal Atrophy/Progressive Rod Cone Degeneration and is MDR1 normal/mutant. Dewclaws from the puppies were sent to the lab for testing to determine the MDR1 status of each puppy and results will be posted as soon as they are available. Dogs with MDR1 mutant genes simply means that Ivermectin and products listed on the drug sensitivity list for herding breeds should be administered only in correct doses or use alternative drugs. MDR1 is simply an allergy to certain med's. Read the Health Clearances page for explanation or visit the labs we use at www.pawprintgenetics.com or animalgenetics.com. Copies of lab reports are included in my puppypacks for your vets review at time of well baby checkup & to keep on file for the duration of your puppy's life.
All Fifteen Acre Farms puppies go home with a WRITTEN contract for spay/neuter, guarantee for genetic issue's the parents are tested for & copies of those lab reports, vaccination record & schedule to follow, AKC & ASCA registration paperwork, Nutrisource Food, collar, leash, travel size bowls, & breeder commitment to be available at any time during the dogs life to answer questions, address concerns, and provide assistance as needed with continued training.
Fifteen Acre Farms is located 30 minutes north of Tulsa, OK and 2-1/2 hours from Oklahoma City. We have currently placed puppies with their new families in Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, & 45 US states so we have plenty of references available & experience transporting live animals via Priority Parcel Service on American Airlines, Delta, & United. Air travel is $400 and covers the cost of the airline approved crate with all required labeling, food/water dishes, vet visit, fecal, health papers, airfare, & transportation to & from the vet and to & from the airport. We can also transport 2 puppies together for $500. Read our "Shipping" page to address any concerns you may have regarding air travel for live animals. Because we are centrally located in the US, puppies are usually only intransit 2-7 hours depending on destination. View the "Airports" page to choose an airport nearest you for pickup.
We work at home & spend alot of time EVERY day with our animals. Our main focus is producing quality healthy puppies from properly health tested parents & placing them with responsible pet owners. In addition, our breeding program & facilities are AKC and OK state INSPECTED & APPROVED.
Feeding: We feed, and recommend, Nutrisource, Bil-jac, & Holistic Select dry foods. Nutrisource & Holistic Select can be purchased on www.chewy.com. Bil-jac Puppy Select and Adult Select can be found at Petsmart. These brands of food are MADE IN THE USA WITH ALL USA INGREDIENTS. Our puppies have food in front of them at all times so they can eat as much as they want as often as each individual puppy feels the need to eat. If you want to feed on a schedule, puppies need to be offered food at least 3-4 times daily. If food is left in the bowl at each feeding, you know he/she got enough. If they clean up the amount you feed, offer more or you won't know if your puppy got enough to eat. Keep in mind that many times hunger is the root of bad behavior for animals.
EYE COLOR & SIZE: Be sure you have a good understanding of how genetics work regarding eye color in this breed and DO NOT have unrealistic expectations of me as a breeder. Each puppy has a 50/50 chance of having blue eyes.... that’s 50% chance they will and 50% chance they won’t. It really is that simple. In this breed, eye color can change at any time during the lifetime of the puppy so I can neither predict nor guarantee eye color and conversations regarding eye color are not a preferred topic of conversation for me. In addition, I will never tell you what you want to hear just to make the sale. What I CAN do is provide you the buyer with an IMPRESSIVE selection of quality healthy puppies produced from the finest of the breed consisting of the proper balance of health by CAREFUL genetic selection, intelligence, & beauty that transition quickly and well from our care to yours with a terrific start on obedience training, potty training, and sleeping through the night. In addition, do your research at asca.org and akc.org on the size of a PUREBRED Australian Shepherd and, again, DO NOT have unrealistic expectations of me as a breeder. Height and weight for EVERY male and female in our program are posted under their picture so YOU can determine what size their offspring has the potential to be.
Color genetics lesson: Uppercase “B” represents black and blue. Lowercase “b” represents red. ALL red dogs have two red genes (b/b). It’s genetically impossible for a red dog to have a black (B) gene. Carolina is a black factored black tri (B/B). Wyatt is a red tri (b/b). All puppies in this litter are red factored black tri's (B/b) getting the uppercase B gene (black) from Carolina and the lowercase b gene (red) from Wyatt. It is also the merle parent that determines the number of merle pups in the litter so because this litter is a tri to tri breeding there are only tri offspring. There is no merle gene present from either parent so it is genetically impossible to produce merle pups from 2 tri parents. A merle dog has one merle gene M and one tri gene m represented as M/m. A tri dog has 2 tri genes represented as m/m. Breeding tri m/m to tri m/m yields ALL tri's m/m. There is NO other possible genetic combination. Also note: Carolina gave her NBT gene 3 out of 6 times and Wyatt gave his MDR1 gene 3 out of 6 times.
***ANY ADULT DOG OR PUPPY PLACED FOR BREEDING IS $3000 regardless of color or gender. Why $3000? Why should I invest tens of thousands of dollars in health testing to remove genetic issues for others to choose a $200 mate with NO health testing & breed genetic flaws right back into MY lines. A $3000 investment shows YOUR commitment to the breed and responsibility as a breeder. I expect you to take breeding to improve the breed as serious as I do. If you think you want to breed, read the Breeding 101 page then answer all the questions on the Contract (Breeding) page in detail and email your answers to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.***
When you are ready to place deposit on a puppy, or be added to the list for a future litter, call or text 918-706-1931 or send an email to email@example.com and include your name, phone number, location so I will know if air travel is needed or if you plan to pickup here, the puppy that interests you, if this will be your first Australian Shepherd, if you have other dogs, & if you are a responsible pet owner and plan to spay/neuter.
