  • At Crystaleye Aussies I take pride in my own dogs, breeding a litter is very rare for me and I only ever breed when wanting a young star to keep for myself.

  • I understand that buying a puppy is an exciting time for you and your family members, and a huge responsibility. For me to ensure that a Crystaleye Aussie is right for you, please take the time to answer the questions in this carefully prepared questionnaire.

  • I will take expressions of interests for our planned litters, however I will only ever place my puppies into the most perfect of homes. After-all I feel responsible for these little guys and want to ensure that they have the best lives they can when bought into this world.

  • Should the unforseen event arise that you can no longer care for or keep your Crystaleye puppy or dog please contact me as your first option of rehoming.
