Ateyo our warrior puppy. From our Avatar litter. Atyeo is a stunning black tri with lots of flashy white and beautiful copper trim. He has tons of bone, and a gorgeous headpiece. Ateyo was the first born in our repeat breeding from sire AKC GCH and group winning "Rico". Shoreland's Midnight Cowboy. Rico is out of our foundation sire Sonny and has proven to be a consistent stud, throwing flashy, intelligent pups. The dam is our own bredby bitch, "Beyonce". IndigoMoon's Irreplaceable. Beyonce is a "Tempo" granddaughter, ASCA and AKC hall of fame dam. Rico's pedigree contains best in show and top ranked Aussies and Rico is currently moving up the ranks, placing at number 11 for Feb in Australian Shepherds, 13, in herding, and 15 all breed stats. It looks like with his recent back to back breed and group wins he will rank into the top ten from March. Rico has already produced AKC champions and UKC champions. Ateyo is AKC and ASCA registered. He was the firstborn in this litter and one of my picks from day 1. We kept Ateyo and a female, but due to some lingering health issues and limited resources, we have decided to offer Ateyo for sale to the right home. We really feel Ateyo needs a show/conformation home as he is an incredible representation of our breed, with a very outgoing, "look at me" attitude. We are a small, competitive conformation kennel, and ALL of our dogs remain part of our family, are raised and live in our home among us. We do not have "kennels", and therefore our resources are limited. Ateyo is very, very vocal, always "telling stories", and is a very bold pup. He is crate, leash and house trained. He has already been started on show training, and knows, "look" and how to stack. Even at such an awkward age, Ateyo's pedigree and intelligence is showing, he is solid and a beautiful mover. Ateyo is a bold, animated pup and needs attention and challenges. He is not a "push button" Aussie, he loves to cuddle, run, play, and mostly just be with his "people". Both sire and dam have ALL health clearances, and Ateyo is cleared of the HSF4 cataract mutation by parentage, both parents are clear. He is going to be a larger boned boy, with beautiful balance and just a stunning head. It is a difficult decision to place Ateyo for sale, but we need to put the needs of each puppy above our ambition for the ring, and I feel Ateyo needs a home where there is not so much competition, as my time is limited with training and interaction. These pictures were taken about 3 weeks ago, and I can email more recent photos. Please be sure to visit our site to understand our breeding ethics and our devotion to this amazing breed. We do screen ALL potential homes, so please do not be offended. If you are looking for a stunning male, for the conformation ring, for performance events and as a solid foundation stud dog, Ateyo will make you an incredible prospect. He is loaded with charm and gets along great with other dogs. He has some of the natural guarding instincts we value in our breed, but has done wonderful with socialization and is friendly and outgoing in new environments. Ateyo is up to date on all his shots and preventatives. Shipping is extra, and depending on location, will cost approx $275. We do some traveling for shows, so there is a possiblity of being able to meet for delivery. ALL of our animals, whether pups or adults come with a 3 year health guarantee, and a lifetime guarantee against genetic or hereditary diseases/syndromes.
