Pistol is our prize stud! He is our son Kidridge's dog and is a real worker. He is a fearless, very muscular and stocky/solid dog with a lot of energy. But he never hesitates to snuggle his boy on the sofa! He produces awesome puppies! For a full look at Pistol's pedigree please visit:

Cap is one of Pistol's pups from our first litter. Cap is the calm one, he loves to chase cows and has all the right moves but unlike Pistol he is very easy goin'. He would rather lay around and watch mom all day! He has been my babysitter for many puppies and he is just the sweetest most careful thing for his size and strength! He is a taller lankier built boy but this has proved advantageous for keeping up with us during our long cattle drives on horseback! For a look at Cap's full pedigree visit:

Forest was our ACD foster dog from Pennsylvania but he is with us forever now. He was born with scoliosis. He has a cart but loves to play freely on the farm! He loves the other ACDs and is the most loving happy boy you will ever meet!
Dude is our handsome speckled boy, he comes from the east coast. We met him when we picked up Austy and fell in love with him. He is the sire of our Austy and had since been moved thru several breeders. We tracked him down and he is now part of Griffin Farms Cattle Dogs. He is co-owned with our best friends, Paige & Michael Orndorff. He has amazing foundation bloodlines and a super sweet easy going
personality!! See Dude's pedigree at:

Dom is our foster failure. He is not a cattle dog but an equally loved part of our family. He is our therapy and emotional support dog and our entertainer! He was on death row in a kill facility in Arkansas. I saw his face and had him pulled. He came to us to go through heartworm treatment and then be adopted out. We had no idea how damaged he was though....it took months to get him over daily obstacles as simple as eating out of a dog bowl. By the time he got over some of the issues, he had proven himself to be a vital part of our family. His past and his personality makes for one special boy. He loves and nurtures with every breath he takes and his appreciation for his new life is an inspiration.
The perfect mix of all of our loves! He is a spicy gritty boy with lots of personality! He will pass on the lines of two of our beloved retired females! We just could not pass on this speckled handsome boy! We know his potential and bloodlines and trust in them whole heartedly! Can't wait to see him working and breeding in the next couple of years!
January 2016 we welcomed another rescue into our family. Max had been at our local shelter since he was a pup, now being 3 years old he was starting to have some major issues and behavioral problems at the shelter. He was basically on the short list, one of the "Last Chance Dogs".... Kidridge took him through Obediance Class in hopes of making him more adoptable. He learned from Kidridge but it did not carry over to others and he still was not approachable in the kennels at the shelter so no one looked at him. With no hopes of adoption we brought him home. He is a very loving and sweet soul. He is playful and happy...he just needed a family and a home.
