Hi, Y'all. Wandering Acres Ranch got its name because we are a military family which moves a lot! One day we will settle down for good but that won't be until Joel retires from the army. We are a family ran farm. We have horses, goats, pigs, chickens, cats and dogs. Besides the animal aspect we also love to garden and one day would love to have a bigger version of what we do now. For now, we reside in Chehalis, Wa.
We got into breeding Australian Shepherds specifically the smaller size because there are so many out there that are not true to standard or even looked like an aussie in some cases. Even tho we have smaller sizes we also have a lot of the bigger sized Aussies. We sure learned a lot our first year ( and we still are learning). At the end of our first year we started to switched our whole program to AKC Australian Shepherds. The reason for this switch is we never want anyone to question if our smaller size aussie's are purebred. AKC will DNA test after so many litters and with being apart of Bred with Heart and Puppy Protection plan thru AKC we are held to a higher standard. We now are 100% an AKC Australian Shepherd breeder of all sizes. AKC does not recognize the size variety so it can be a bit confusing at times. Here at our ranch we have Aussie's from 14" tall-23", which by other registries would be toy, mini and standard size. Again, all of our Aussie's regardless of size are just AKC Australian Shepherds.
We will continue to add to this site but for now if you have any questions at all please feel free to ask!
