Co-ownership offers me the opportunity to hold back quality breed quality dogs in my program while keeping my own doggies spoiled at home. This is a great incentive which offers people the opportunity to own a champion bred, quality Mini Aussie or Miniature American Shepherd at a fraction of the cost.
Female Co-ownership/Foster: Female co-ownership/foster involves the female living with you as a pet, and remaining in my breeding program. She is to return to my care for health testing (one day-week), showing (times may vary), breeding (one week, but times may vary), and the raising of her litter (6-8 weeks). Each contract varies according to the agreement between the foster family and myself as the breeder.
Male Co-ownership/Foster: Male co-ownership/foster involves the male living with you as a pet and remaining in my breeding program. Males are offered a contract based on a set number of years that I require them to stay intact for my use. They are to return to me for health testing (one day-week), showing (times may vary), and breeding (one week, but times may vary). The stud dog is to be available for breeding purposes when required.
What I Am Looking For in a Co-own/Foster Family: When looking for a co-own/foster family I am looking for people who are easy to work with, and are interested on experiencing the joys of a quality Mini Aussie or Miniature American Shepherd. I require families to live within two hours of the Bancroft area. A strong understanding of the process of co-owning, the expectations of the co-owner, and the breed are also required.
Benefits of Co-owning: - Lifetime breeder support and assistance in training & raising your dog! - Show quality pet at a discounted price! - A pet that is shown/tested & of quality parentage. - Extra braggin' rights!
