Sunny had a beautiful litter, in August 2022. We will be breeding her with Watson this next time, and hopefully get some blue merles! January or February, is the expected month(s) for Sunny to come into heat. It is all up to her when she will cooperate. Sunny is a smaller Mini Aussie, weighing 22lbs.

Our first little girl arrived at 3:15 a.m. Sunday, 8/21/22, morning! She did not even act like she was going into labor, other than nesting. All arrived by 8:30!
Unfortunately her second pup was stillborn.
We also had to euthanize one little red tri male, as he had a severe cleft palette. And one is definitely a runt, and we are needing to tube feed her, currently, but she is doing well, and gaining weight!
Ace is a handsome boy and he fell instantly in love with Sunny! In fact, it was mutual!!
Ace is slightly bigger than Sunny,
They had beautiful puppies!

Sadie is going home with the David Stolte Family, on Wednesday 10/19/22
Our little Star Baby..., will be staying with us.
Star was born with a cleft pallet, which we did not know at the time of an early Vet exam. It is far back in the soft pallet, and the Vet did not see it. She started losing weight, so we took her back to the Vet, and that is when we learned she had the cleft pallet. We were taught how to tube feed her. She took right to eating that way and we continued this for a month. She started gaining weight...! YAY!! After five weeks she started eating soaked kibbles. She is doing very well now, and weighs 5.50 lbs., as of 11/7/22. She also has some other issues she is dealing with, so we are watching her carefully. She has learned to navigate eating and drinking well, and enjoys her little world. Our Vet checks her often. She will continue to remain with us and enjoy her precious life. She is a joy to us, and warms our hearts, as we enjoy each and every moment with her.
No need to say, she will definitely be loved beyond measure, and be somewhat spoiled!
Little Sage weighed 9.5 oz at birth.
She has almost a full collar with lots of white on her face and a perfect dot on her head.
White high socks on front legs and anklets on back legs. She took to nursing right away and is already gaining weight at a good pace!
Our first little boy - weighing 8.3 oz.
Scout has quite a design on his head and neck. A circle right on top of his head. He has half a collar that goes to the left. High socks on his front legs and white toes in the rear. He is also doing great with gaining weight!
Sadie weighed in at 8.3 oz.
She has high white socks in front and white toes in the rear. A perfect little dew drop on top of her head and a half collar going to the right. Sadie had a natural bobbed tail. She is gaining weight nicely.
She has very little copper, but is still a 'tri'.
Star weighed 8.1 oz. at birth.
She has lots of white on her face coming to a point on top of her head..., thus the name! She has a little 'dash' on the back of her neck and a partial collar. Minimal copper throughout her body. Little Star is our Miracle baby. Definitely the 'runt'.
Star was born at 8.1 oz., but was not able to suckle, at first. She dropped to 6.1 oz., so the vet showed us how to tube feed her. She is now gaining weight and went to the Vet on Sept. 7 and Oct. 13, the vet said she is doing much better. She is now able to nurse off of mama. However, we are still supplementing her with hand feeding, until she is a bit older. We pray she continues to improve.
Update: as of 9/30, Star weighs 2.06 lbs! Yay!
She is thriving! Praise God!!!
Little Sami is our light weight, born at 7.4 oz.
Sami has a short blaze on her face and a little speck of white on the back of her neck. She is wearing anklet socks on her front feet and has white toes on back feet.
She is still a 'light weight' and the second smallest of the litter, currently. She is helping to keep little Star company in a separate whelping box, as we moved the bigger ones into a playpen, and we don't want Star to get run over, so Sami is her 'playmate'. She is very gentle with her.
Sherman is 6 years old. He is quite a character!
He loves to play ball, and help out on the property. Sherman weighs close to 45 lbs, and is on the 'high end' of the 'mini' classification.
He produces beautiful pups and is quite the 'man'!
This is our American Themed Litter!
All eight pups are healthy and little sweethearts!
The boys were outnumbered, again, in this litter, with only one little boy amongst 7 girls!
Belle is a sweet, sweet soul.
She is 5 years old and has beautiful pups.
Belle is not red factored..., so no red pups!

Belle weighs 35 lbs.

Our family lost the love of our life about a year ago. We had a beautiful sable Sheltie that passed after 15 years. My wife and I were both heart struck a year on and decided it was time for another herding dog. After all, there's no substitute! After careful consideration, we decided to visit with Ann. I must say, it was one of the best things we've done in quite a while.
Our visit with Ann lasted about 2 hours. We sat and chatted with her and got to know both her and her dogs. I quickly saw that she really cared for the pups, dams, and sires. Our visit included getting to know dams Belle and Sunny. We enjoyed seeing two litters of pups, most of which had already been spoken for. But there is absolutely no substitute to getting a firsthand look at the temperament and personality of dogs. We ultimately decided that Lyra (now Ruby - because she's a red bi-color gem :-) ) was the perfect pup for our family. Since her adoption, I can absolutely say that I've never had a dog as intelligent, eager to please, and as easy to train - and that's after having 2 Shelties for nearly 15 years. If you're even remotely considering Warren's Colorado Mini Aussies, make sure to at least pay a visit to Ann and Marshel.

"I'm the proud owner of Chai. I had just lost my little girl (Macy), my little dog. My heart was broken. I couldn't take coming home and not having that love she gives. I went on line and found Warren's Colorado Mini Aussies. I looked at others but kept going back to Warren's. I called Ann Warren and history was made. I got on the waiting list. I was put on the next litter. Ann called me sooner than expected and said that she had a little girl, who had been promised to another family, but they wanted a male, and it pushed me up the list. I now have the most beautiful blue eyed puppy in the world. It's been two weeks and I love her. Thank you Ann, this has been the best experience I've ever had. I highly recommend Warren's Colorado Mini Aussies."

"Warren’s Colorado Mini Aussies has been amazing to work with. We had looked and looked for a good reputable breeder for mini Aussies and came across their web sight. I sent Ann an email and she replied very quickly and offered to let us to come to their home the next day to look at their dogs and pups. They made us feel so welcome and we immediately fell in love with their dogs and puppies. We visited for quite awhile and they answered all of our questions and made us feel very comfortable. We were new to the breed and they went above and beyond to give us so much information about mini Aussies. They are so knowledgeable and we spent several hours with them. Ann and Butch are so personable and kind. When we left we knew that we wanted to get a puppy from them.
Ann explained how the deposit process works, pick of the pups, play dates and pick up process. They are very passionate about what they do and love their dogs very much and have an excellent breeding program. Their dogs have such wonderful personalities and temperaments. Ann and Butch socialize their puppies and give them so much love and care and it shows. From the start to the finish of the process Ann kept us informed with updates and pictures. We know we will be keeping in touch and this is just the beginning of a wonderful friendship as well. We would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to get a mini Aussie puppy. We feel so blessed to have found them and are thrilled to be a part of the Warren mini Aussie family.
Our Cooper is everything we hoped for and more. We are so happy to have him as a part of our family. Thanks so much Warren’s Mini Aussies."

We had a great experience with Warren's Colorado Mini Aussies. With two little boys at home we wanted to make sure we got the right puppy for our family. Ann had us over to her house numerous times to meet the puppies and answer any questions we had. She sent regular updates as to how things were going and was always very responsive. When the time came to pick our puppy up, she worked with us to try and identify a puppy with a temperament that would fit our family. Our puppy came home and quickly adjusted. He's very smart and loving and learns more every day!
