Krossfire Australian Shepherds Puppy Questionnaire

Thank you for inquiring about our Australian Shepherds. Krossfire Australian Shepherds is located in Houston, TX. We are not a business or a full-time kennel, but we do breed occasionally to produce what we believe to be quality Australian Shepherds who make wonderful companions and competitors. When we have litters, it is important to make certain our puppies are sold to loving, well prepared,  committed homes. We do our best to screen the owners to ensure a good match between the puppy and the buyer. In an effort to ensure that our puppies are going to receive the love and care they will require throughout their lives,we ask all potential buyers to complete this questionnaire. If you wish to be put on our waiting list you must complete and return the questionnaire to us.

Occasionally, we have blue merle, red, and black puppies available. Please check our Available page for current listings.

Australian Shepherds need a secure place to stay when their family is away. It is important to think about where the dog will live when you are at home, away at work or when your family leaves for vacation. This is a very active breed that needs regular exercise and owners need to be prepared to make time to provide an organized outlet for this energy. Daily walks, bike rides, swimming, frisbee or games of fetch are all good ideas for keeping your dog stimulated and happy.
