Do you understand that Border - Aussies originates from working breeds and require a significant amount of physical activity and mental stimulation every day? (If they do not get enough physical activity and attention they may become agitated and destructive, or develop neurotic behavior. These dog breeds have been bred for generations to have high energy and keep busy. They do not do well in confined spaces or with very little physical activity. Please be aware that one walk a day is not going to satisfy their needs.)

How did you hear about Sundown Border-Aussies? 
If you are notified in that you have been approved to adopting a dog from Sundown Border-Aussies, a $300.00 deposit will be required to hold the dog until it is ready for pick up. The order of selection of pups is based on when deposit is received and what dogs you have requested.  Final selection of dogs can be done after they are 6 weeks old. This deposit is non-refundable, unless the dog is injured or becomes seriously ill, before it is turned over to the new owners. The breeder may also refund the down payment if the breeder deems holding back the dog to be in the animals best interest. 

No puppies will be released until they are at least 8 weeks old, have been vet checked, and receive their first immunizations. We do not offer a delivery service so all dogs must be picked up in person, unless other arrangements satisfactory to the breeder can be arranged.
Note: This form only allows one choice. Mark your first choice and then let us know if you have other options  in the section near the end that asks to tell us more about yourself and things we should take into consideration.
