Honeycreek Australian Shepherds

Welcome to Honeycreek Aussie's

Who are we? A little about us.

Hello, my name is Ben I do the website stuff around here so if there are any mistakes you notice first please let me know, second I take full blame for it. My wife's name is Linda both of us over the years (Retired and enjoying it) have had many pets of different types that we have raised for pleasure not just for money alone but because we love one and all of them.

Dogs have always been the for front of our joy. Having out lived now since we have been together 3 types of dogs. Our first one's where a loving pair of Miniature Schnauzers a great pleasure they where when they where with us, long since passed on now. The second where a wonderful pair of Great Danes oh how I miss them both now gone from us about a year and a half now.

But now for over a year we have these lovely, playful jewels. Three Australian Shepherds, Blue Merle (Daisy), Red Merle (Brandy) and Tri-Black male (Rusty). I personally have had the pleasure of more dogs than listed here over my years but I have to say these are jewels without a doubt. Playful, loving, loyal, very smart sometimes to smart and just a joy to have around. Yes they can be a handful at times but the laughter and joy they re pay you with is worth it just do not ask me if that is so when they are a bit more than I can handle at times as I will give you a different response then.

Growing up on a working farm is what both the wife and I did with all that goes along living and breathing farm life. I was active in 4H as well as my wife. My father and I raised, broke, bred and sold horses as well as cattle, the wife the same along with other farm animals.

Right or wrong other than a dog my first real pet I had was a racoon kit I found by his mother who had a mis-fortunate accident. I raised this little one until adult hood at which time one day he was just gone I am sure nature called and he had to go check it out, I was glad at the time I could do what I could for him.

Since that time and mostly while married to Linda we have raised a lot of different things besides dogs. I got a passion for birds so I built a Aviary room in another house we owned in the basement area. It housed from Cockatiel's to Parrots and some things in between. I also jumped into reptiles about the same time having from Snakes to Lizards of all types around the house. Then I got into Ferrets, Prairie dogs and other things. I think you get the point here, have always been around some type of animal, just love them all.

Honeycreek AKC Standard Australian Shepherds

Our Australain Sheperd Puppy's

What you can expect from HoneyCreek Australian Shepherds.

Number one on the list is, "We WILL NOT for any reason what so ever ship our puppy's anywhere". I believe that if someone is committing 15 years of their life to one of our pups then we need to met with them and so does the pup. No amount of money or reason's will change this so do not bother to ask.

First and foremost all our Aussie's and their puppy's are apart of our family you could say our furry kids. Each and every time one of our girls has a litter I personally sit and sleep by the box with them during the whole process helping clean and dry each and every pup born checking all to make sure they are doing well. Giving total concern to the mother and her newborns is what we do each and every time. The mothers give birth in a whelping box designed with the need's and the puppy's needs in mind, it is heated for the puppy's need and has light so mommy can see her pups at night as well as so we can. Nothing is more important to us than our Aussie's needs and the puppy's needs at this point in time, they get total attention from us.

Please IF you are searching for a designer, show-off puppy do not bother calling us we allow adoption of our puppy's to those wanting friends not those who want "I want Blue eyed male/female big/small puppy that can dance and do tricks blah blah blah". Those phone calls or emails I either hang up on or reply we are out of puppy's. Any pet no matter what it maybe is first and foremost a commitment by you to them to love, care for and be their sole mate not just be their to show them off and tire of them later on.

All our puppies are vet cared for and are taken to the vet on their 3rd day for tail docking, dew claw removal and their first wellness check. They begin worming as required on their 2nd week with us (or begins once eyes open). At their 6 week mark they are again taking to the vet for their first round of shots and another wellness check up which includes hip check, eye check, feet and all around body check over. NO puppy leaves this house without being cleared by our vet. We do not do it ourselves like some, all exams, shots, directives are done by our vet. We love our dogs and their puppies, we take the time and effort to ensure you are getting a Healthy and Sound new friend.

AKC Pet Insurance

What you get from us with your new Aussie Puppy.

First and foremost you get our knowledge of the Breed and a 100% backing of help if needed.

All our puppies are AKC Registrable by you, these are pure bred standard size Australian Shepherd puppies. They come with their AKC paperwork at time of pickup, all puppy shots to the 8 week mark, de wormed at 2,4,6 and 8 weeks, tails docked, dew claws removed, Vet Clearance(A MUST BEFORE THEY LEAVE THIS HOUSE), Pedigree Paperwork, lots of information on the breed, a signed Health Agreement by us, pre spoiled, a puppy packet including a sample of the food they are currently eating. They will be eating and drinking on their own prior to you taking them home. Potty Training is started but will need more on your part. Obedience Training is not provided by us but are shown the basics. Puppies are kept safe on a enclosed porch as well as having the ability to roam in a outdoor enclosed area for their safety. When we are with them the area is opened and they have the freedom to roam as they please so house breaking them is up to you but they will begin to know that their business is to be done outside.

Pricing and other Information.

All our puppies are AKC Registrable by you, these are pure bred standard size Australian Shepherd puppies. All puppy prices will be by their pictures, scroll down and see their price along with any other information. IF it says AVAILABLE by their picture then consider them AVAILABLE. Please see the pictures below, price is by their picture when litters are available. Unlike others when you purchase a puppy from us the puppy is yours with full rights to do as you want. We hope if you decide to breed you understand fully the welfare of your friends needs over just the value of breeding her if you choice a female. Eye color cannot be promised until they are 5 weeks old as Aussie's eyes can and do change up until that point. So do not ask to hold one until 5 weeks old to see eye color that will not happen, either you want a friend and we will help you or you want a designer pup and we will not help you. We offer our pups to those wanting a friend we do not offer them to anyone who just wants a blue eyed Merle/non Merle dog to show off. Showing them in a AKC event is different than just showing them off as a blue eyed dog as an AKC event dog at least means you will take care of the dogs needs and love them.

The above brings up another frequently asked question. Are your Aussies OFA certified and/or have they been hip and eye tested? Short answer Yes they have been tested by our Vet to be free of genetic concerns and fully able to breed. Have I certified them by the OFA group, NO. Why? First let me say I hold no ill feelings towards OFA but if you truly read the process you will find that once you take your dogs to your Vet, have them do all the work then send the x-rays to the OFA people they (key-word) Judge whether the dog is good or not by a scale they have. What would you trust more someone judging by a scale or a certified, well trained Veterinarian you have dealt with for years? You have our permission to contact our Vet at anytime to have our dogs credentials fully checked as well as any questions about us answered you may have.

Honeycreek Farm

Where are we?

About the farm.

We purchased this place back in 1999, we had been looking for another home for a while. Some place that we both could stretch out, un-wind after a long day and just soak it in a bit. We found this little place in the country rather in no where's ville as we have been told and fell in love with it. Located in Central Missouri about 8 miles north of Warrensburg, Missouri a college town where Central Missouri State University is located this is now where we call home.

It is not a big place just around the 10 acre mark but our wonderful neighbor owns roughly 1000 acres and gives us pretty much full run to whatever we want to do with in reason. A creek runs just a little away from our house, guess what it's name is? Yes that is correct, Honeycreek where our name comes from. The area has a lot of history to it, Indian history, settler history and Bee history. Yes the name Honeycreek came from them as I am told. Settlers use to gather from the woodland area honey from the bees located in the big Oak trees around here.

I was also told Jesse James ran through the area as there is a small cave back in the woodlands, maybe a hideout, maybe some treasure hidden who knows. But at any rate lot's of history here and now tons of memories I would not want to be without. Three Daughters a Son, 9 Grandkids and 1 Great Grand son yes lots of memories here I would not trade for the world.

Enough about myself and my wife, your here for dogs and one of the best Australian Shepherds. Look around, feel free to contact me if you have any questions as I will be very glad to help you if I can
