We are Marshel and Ann Warren.
This journey we are on is amazing. We are very passionate about this breeding endeavor and are constantly researching how we can improve the breed, and raise healthy, beautiful, intelligent, and wonderful dogs. We truly view this as our ministry, and are blessed every day by these wonderful companions, and the folks we meet, along the way!
Not only do we get to meet so many wonderful people, when adopting our puppies, but we get to share our hearts, our passion, and the beautiful, unconditional love that our puppies bring to their new families.
We bought our first Mini Aussie in 2014, and fell totally and completely in love with her (Rylee), and the Mini Aussie breed.
Two years later we bought our first stud, Sherman from Roni and Jim Hale. We have been very blessed to be mentored by the Hales, who have been in the business for over 25 years, and have been willing to share their many years' of experience with us. Sherman has proven to be everything we wanted. He has sired over 100 beautiful puppies. Quite a prolific little man.
We got our second stud - Tango, in late February 2021, also, from the Hale family. He is a beautiful Blue Merle, and he will be breeding to our girls in late 2021. We searched for over 3 years for him, and FINALLY found him!
We have lived in the Loveland & Berthoud area for over 45 years. In the past, we have raised Great Pyrenees, and bred and trained Arabian horses. Although, we enjoyed those endeavors, our passion is the Mini Aussie.
We find the Mini Aussie breed to be the most loving, fun and energetic dogs, we have ever owned. They are smart beyond belief, a companion that is always by your side, and the most loyal of the loyal! We have just recently purchased two sweet smaller dogs. ChaCha is definitely a Toy, while Disco is a small mini. We will see how they develop, and maybe we will be breeding them in a year or two.
All of our litters are whelped in our bedroom, and are all raised as a part of our family, being handled from birth. After their eyes are open and they are ready to be moved, they are placed in their playpen in our living room, so they get used to daily life and more socialization. From there, they are shown the door to their 'private' play area on the front porch and their own little yard. Their mama is with them, at all times, until they leave our home, at 8 weeks of age.
Pictured is three of our pups from one of our first litters. They are all sweethearts.
Pictures of all of our 'Guys and Gals' are on that tab, and also pictures of current and past litters are on the 'Puppies' tab. There are also many pictures in the 'Photo Gallery'.
If you would like to be added to the waitlist for one of our pups, or if you have any questions about our program, please feel free to call us at 970-215-9488.
Folks on our 'Waitlist' will be placed on 2022 litters. Although, there is a possibility of earlier pups coming available. Folks will be called in order of the date they were put on the waitlist, when a puppy comes available. At that time, deposits will be accepted.
As breeders of this wonderful breed, we continue to educate ourselves. We breed with love, compassion and integrity. We have all of our breeding dogs DNA tested, through Paw Print Genetics, and are striving to breed only dogs that are 100% clear on all of the diseases that could affect the breed.
We love each one of our 'partners' in this 'labor of love' and consider them all family. They are the most loving and loyal dogs around, and are constantly at our feet, following us on this most great adventure!
We thank God, every day, for directing us to this partnership with our Aussies, and continually guiding us on this wonderful journey. We are BLESSED beyond measure.

Unconditional love is what these little bundles give each family they go to.
They definitely bring 'love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self control, (the Fruit of the Spirit) to every person and family that are blessed enough to adopt one.
I wonder if Christ had a little brown dog
All curly and wooly like mine;
With two silky ears, and a nose round and wet,
and eyes brown and tender that shine.
I'm afraid that He hadn't, because I have read
How he prayed in the garden alone,
For all of his friends and disciples had fled,
Even Peter, the one called a 'stone'.
And oh, I am sure that that little brown dog
With a heart so tender and warm,
Would never have left Him to suffer alone,
But, creeping right under His arm,
Would have licked those dear fingers in agony clasped,
And counting all favours but loss,
When they took Him away, would have trotted behind
And followed Him right to the cross.
