got my first Australian Shepherd,” Mago Merlino" as a
gift from a friend of ours in 2002. I immediately fell in love with the
breed and for fun I tried showing him. He was a natural and was
very patient as learned my ropes. We eventually became a great
team ,unfortunately we found out that having Merlino only an ASCA
pedegree we couldn’t do a lot of things in Italy. I was so very proud
of him and myself as he always was placed first excellent, but I had to
start looking for dogs with paper accepted in Italy!!.
I started to look for subjects which reflected my vision of the perfect
Aussie, I started to study a lot of bloodlines, by looking them up on
internet, talking and contacting breeders in Italy and abroad!! I have
bought some dogs which I hope will help me to realize my dream.
would like to thank the many friends and mentors that have shared their
knowledge and given words of wisdom. I would especially like to
thank the breeders which have entrusted me with theirs wonderful dogs.
would also like to thank all person , who have puts up with
all the oddities that this dream has brought to my life.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about my dogs or about the breed in general !
