About MontRose Aussies
At MontRose Aussies, we've been breeding and showing Australian Shepherds for over three decades on our farm in southern New York State. We are an ASCA Hall of Fame Kennel, USASA Hall of Fame Breeder, and a Senior Breeder Judge with the Australian Shepherd Club of America.
The dogs residing here are registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC) and Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA) with an emphasis on showing in the conformation ring in both breed registries. MontRose is a registered kennel name with the Australian Shepherd Club of America.
Our beginnings were much different than the present emphasis on earning titles. I became interested in the Australian Shepherd as a companion animal and helper on the farm. My first Aussie was a blue merle male puppy. His intelligence, enthusiasm, athleticism, and above all his devotion got me hooked. It wasn't long before another Aussie came along.
All dogs residing here are in the Orthopedic Foundation For Animals (OFA) registry for hip and elbow clearances and have completed genetic panels through PawPrint Genetics.
