Our first Mini Aussie , Locust Grove Bandit, was a bundle of energy and love in equal measures. If he wasn't loving on his own personal cat, Oliver, or all over us, he was riding on the 4 wheeler, swimming in the creek , chasing the wild turkeys, or accompanying us on the rounds as we fed the horses.

We stood him at stud with Sadie, a red tri female outside breeding, and chose Locust Grove Bridget as our Pick of the Litter. Bandit was 17 inches tall and 38 pounds. Sadie was a little shorter and lighter, so we think Bridget will mature around 17 inches / 32#.
