What our families are saying...
Thank you to everyone for keeping in touch and sending us updates. We love it!
"Kai is very playful, smarter than me but the best trait is that he is not aggressive and does really well with kids. The only time he showed aggression was towards another Australian Shepherd who became aggressive first. Kai is one of the most engaging and beautiful souls I’ve ever seen. He weighs 60lbs and is very healthy. He loves to walk and run and has lots of energy. If anybody wants to talk to me I can give my best reviews"
"Our experience with Milky Way border Aussies was phenomenal from the very first conversation. My fiance had always wanted an Australian Shepherd so when our dog passed and it came time for us to welcome a puppy into our family we knew thats what she would be. I spoke with several different breeders in my search for an upcoming litter that would fit our needs and my conversation with Rhonda and Chad is what made the decision for us. They patiently answered my questions, chatting with me for well over an hour one night about what to expect with the breed as well as how they raise the puppies and their own dogs and plans for an upcoming litter. They continued to answer my frequent questions and sent me pictures of the babies as quickly as they could after they were born. Rhonda and Chad kept in touch with me throughout the next 8 weeks as we waited to be able to bring our baby home. We finally met our Luna at the puppy party when she was 6 weeks old and we were madly in love. Luna has been a wonderful addition to our family brining us hours of entertainment and very strong throwing arms. She is smart, energetic, and so incredibly sweet not to mention absolutely beautiful. I would recommend MilkyWay Border Aussies without hesitation."
"She is stunning and many people have commented on her and asked where she came from! I hope you are not too inundated with inquiries. She has been a joy and keeps us on our toes… sweet, loving personality - I love that she comes and practically sits on me and leans hard into me to embrace, pat, love her. My son, Harrison and Suki are 2 of a kind… he’s going to have a hard time going back to college as he misses her so when he’s gone for an afternoon! And she will miss him too! We call him ‘Favorite’ and she will go look for him when we say “Where’s Favorite?”… really sweet!
Another sweet thing is she remembers your daughter and has a soft spot for any little girls!
Thank you for your kindness in trusting us with one of your babies! She is completely spoiled!"
"She is attentive and responsive, plays well with other dogs, sensitive, great in the car, which is her “couch on wheels”, very smart, curious, energetic with an “off switch”. (I generally get her out for 2 good walks/hikes/ski 2,4,6 miles per day). I look forward to teaching her about swimming!"
"Seriously, what ever you did with Orion worked. The vet said he's the smartest dog ever. WE ARE SO IN LOVE...HE IS SOOOOOO SPOILED! Thank you for bringing Orion into our lives. We get so many compliments on how beautiful, well behaved, and smart he is. We are very blessed owning our own blessing. Thanks again for all the time and love you raise those puppies with. "
"Ollie is 52lbs currently and a VERY good boy! We’re working on a couple more tricks as of late but we know all the basics, and his favorite things are his rubber balls, his antler chews, and his cousins! Just wanted to say how much I appreciate my boy and how thankful I am to you guys for letting him come home with me ❤️❤️❤️"
"Willow is awesome! She knows her name, comes when called, likes the whistle call and sits when told. Loves her head out the window when driving. Lol She liked the barn too! . And.. she is starting to let us know she has to go out by hitting the bells or we ask her and she runs to the door. Very smart!"
"Loki is doing great. He has chilled out a lot in the last couple of weeks, he loves to get crazy a couple of times a day but likes to sit and cuddle too. Went on a hike today and he was keeping all the kids in check. Thank you for such a great dog. He fits right in with the family."
" He is very smart, funny and lovable. He loves to be with his family but seems to do just fine when I run errands during the day. We are doing a basic manners class and the instructor thinks he is a super star because he does everything she asks of him when we are there but when we get home not so much! LOL! He gets along nicely so far with other dogs, wants to play with most of them. I can get him to do basically anything with cheese, absolutely loves cheese!! I seriously think he understands me when I talk to him but like the kids doesn’t always listen. We are enjoying him very much and love him so."
"She is obsessed with balls, and frisbees. We have an apple tree and she thinks each apple is a toy. If we are at the camp and she seems to disappear, you can hear the water moving because she went swimming. She loves shadows and light reflections on the wall, she tends to entertain herself if we're not playing with her. She is so FULL of energy and curious about everything. She now has 3 siblings who cannot keep up with her. She is the sweetest soul. She truly is a blessing, and I thank you guys for letting us adopt her."
