Constance is a black tri female with one blue eye/one brown eye and 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, Hereditary Cataracts, Hyperuricosuria, MDR1, Multifocal Retinopathy, Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis 6, & Progressive Retinal Atrophy/Progressive Rod Cone Degeneration. Apache is a blue merle male with Penn Hip evaluation and NO EVIDENCE OF OSTEOARTHRITIS/HIP DYSPLASIA FOR EITHER HIP. He is DNA tested clear for Collie Eye Anomaly, Cone Degeneration, Degenerative Myelopathy, Hereditary Cataracts, Hyperuricosuria, Multifocal Retinopathy, Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis 6, & Progressive Retinal Atrophy/Progressive Rod Cone Degeneration. Apache is MDR1 normal/mutant. Dewclaws have been removed and sent to the lab for testing. Each puppy will test either normal/normal or normal/mutant so there is NO guesswork when you select a Fifteen Acre Farms puppy. Remember ... 50% of the breed has one or two copies of MDR1 so this mutation will not be eradicated anytime soon. MDR1 is simply an allergy to products listed on the 'drug sensitivity list for herding breeds' when an overdose occurs and is a 'be aware' not a 'beware' type of issue.

Constance Puppies are available for pickup on or after 04/21/18 or air travel on or after 05/05/18. Fifteen Acre Farms is located 30 minutes north of Tulsa, OK and 2-1/2 hours from Oklahoma City. Families and breeders in Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, & 45 US states have made their selection here so we have plenty of references available & experience transporting live animals via Priority Parcel Service on American, Delta, & United Airlines. Air travel in the continental United States 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 the "Shipping" page to address any concerns you may have regarding air travel. Because we are centrally located in the US, our 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 PUREBRED puppies from health tested parents & placing them with responsible pet owners as a valued family member living a long and happy life being the best they can be. In addition, our breeding program & facilities are AKC, State of Oklahoma, & USDA LICENSED, INSPECTED, & APPROVED with the highest ratings.
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 blue eyes 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.
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. Constance is a red factored black tri (B/b). Apache is a black factored blue merle (B/B). Puppies in this litter will be either black factored blue merle's or black factored black tri's (B/B) getting a black gene from each parent or they will be red factored blue merle's or red factored black tri's (B/b) getting the black gene B from Apache and the red gene b from Constance. The red gene should not be confused with copper trim. ALL of our parents have copper trim so ALL of our puppies have copper trim. It is also the merle parent that determines the number of merle’s in the litter so in Constance’ litter Apache gave his merle gene M 3 times out of 5 and his tri gene m 2 times out of 5. 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.
***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 preservation of 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. NO EXCEPTIONS/NO EXCUSES. Remember .... 100% of dogs in pound, shelter, & rescue are there as a result of breeding without a plan.***
