Pine Spring Farm is located in the Heart of Central Virginia, not far from our Capital in Richmond.  The beauty in our State is also found in our Aussies....We strive to have the ultimate Aussie in beauty, intelligence, clean in movement, sound in temperament and structure.  We show mainly in conformation/breed ring, and my grand daughter in Junior Showmanship.  We look forward to expanding into agility and herding. 

We are considered a hobby kennel and only have 1-2 litters a year.

Our love of aussies started in the early 90's, having owned several breeds along the years I always ventured back to my true love, The Australian Shepherd, they are such a magnificient breed; majestic, loyal, intelligent, beautiful and loyal to their owner.  
I hope you enjoy your visit and please come back soon.

                                                                                           When I purchased my first aussie, 
                                                                      I fell in love with this wonderful breed.
                                                                          They have big hearts, great minds,
                                                                               and such a will to please ~ ~

                                                                         



 
                                                               The Aussie is your friend, your partner, your defender, your companion.
                                                                                              You are his life, his leader.
                                                                        He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
                                                                                    You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
