Breeding and showing dogs is not for everyone. It takes dedication, devotion and love of the breed to seek victory through sweat, heartbreaks and tears. The Pierce's are located in beautiful Central Oregon who are a husband and wife team devoted to the breed for many years to come as they are in it for the long haul.
The Pierce's really enjoy the relationships they have with their pack while also gaining long lasting friendships with all of their fellow Aussie Fanciers they meet up with at the shows. The Pierce's love to interact with the dogs and watching them grow into beautiful Champions in the conformation arena or simply in Agility, Obedience or Rally.
By focusing on interacting with their dogs, shows the quality of the dog within their small kennel and their capabilities of having a fun active lifestyle with their owners.
Although the Pierce's are a newer breeder, they actually started their small kennel back in 2016 to take the time to find a mentor while also educating themselves on the Breed before deciding to jump in with both feet and having litters. The Pierce's were fortunate enough to find mentors such as the Tri-Smith's to help guide them along. The Tri-Smith's have been so generous with their time and patient by entrusting the Pierce's in helping them make the right decisions while also knowing the Pierce's have the bred at heart. The Pierce's simply can't thank the Tri-Smiths enough for their advice and support over the years. In fact, since the Tri-Smiths are the Pierce's mentors, their kennel would have a combined 37 years of experience if one wants to get technical.
The Pierce's first litter was on May 3, 2018 which was the WTCH Little Spot Smartly Painted RA DNA-VP "Smarty" produced by HOF Pat Lambeth of Little Spot Kennels and the Pierce's IABCA Int'l CH Roxy Pierce "Roxy" (produced by Kylie McClain with Kyvette Aussies) that produced 9 beautiful healthy puppies. Roxy is currently pursuing agility titles as she is a member of the Bend Agility Action Dogs (BAAD).
Although the Pierce's know now that they started a bit backwards with their overall breeding program, they should not be ridiculed as it's to be expected through the learning process to become a well respected breeder as everyone has to start out somewhere. The Pierce's goals are to now actively campaign their dogs by gaining their titles in the conformation ring and performance ring in kicking it up a couple of notches for 2019. We feel confident in moving forward and hope that others will see we are headed in the right direction. The Pierce's goals are to produce the "Versatile Dog" by proving their overall performance in "Both" the show ring and the performance ring as well, more so a 60/40 split of show and stock dog lines
