The Spicy Side Dishes
Mini Australian Shepherd/Cattledog MixesThe Spicy Side Dish babies are growing and ready to leave the nest (gulp!) These special needs babies would LOVE to go in groups of two if at all possible. They are very dependent on one another and completely love together as a group. I have never seen a large group of puppies, or even a small group, just want to be snuggled together like this group. They've been through a lot, are still underdeveloped but doing great, have special dietary needs but nothing crazy and are just the sweetest and most loving group of puppies you will ever meet. They are double merle breeding and also inbred. Their momma is Nyxie who is also from double merle breeding and most likely inbreeding, is also available for adoption. They are small and will not get very big. Everyone one of these puppies including their momma are amazing and exceptionally sweet. All are healthy and very happy.If you think you have what it takes to love forever one of my very protected puppies, start by visiting www.AussieAndMe.org and fill out the online application. Once you are approved to adopt, we will discuss further their needs for a successful future and adoption. The Spicy Side Dishes are being fostered in Sarasota, FL.
