Welcome to Show-Me Aussies home on the web!

We were bitten by the Australian Shepherd bug in 1987 by David & Pam Heintzelman of Lil' Creek
Aussies. It was in Pam's first litter and we fell in love with a little black-tri male we later named
Teddy's Little Spike "Spike" (CH. Heintzelmans Teddy Bear x Shadowmere's Nikita). Spike's sire and
dam were bred by Tina (Shockley) Lass of Shadowmere Australian Shepherds. We started
attending different shows and decided to give it a try. We tried showing our little black-tri dog but
soon realized he wasn't what the judges were looking for in the ring. So! The hunt was on for a dog
for Amy to show in Conformation and Showmanship. We soon found a blue merle female we named
Chelsea's Weathered Blue's (Terebrock's Cure For The Blues x Birch Hollow 's Forever Crystal)
Her and Amy made quite the team in Showmanship and made the 500 Club with ASCA in 1993. We
then met Linda Moss of Quapaw Australian Shepherds. And the real fun began! At that time Linda
lived in Alpena, Arkansas and we we were in awe of her black tri female Pickle's Ch. Brigadoon's
Dressed In Velvet CD, (HOF Ch. Brigadoon's One Arrogant Dude x Gorgeous Red Velvet). She
offered her to us so we took advantage of the offer and bred her to HOF Ch. Caledonia's Crowd
Pleaser "Andy" (HOF Ch. Jimmee Blue Of Adelaide x Ch. Butterfield's Silky Suzann) owned by
Karen Godwin of Caledonia Aussies. This was Andy's second litter. That cross produced ASCA,
AKC, INT'l Ch. Show-Me's Shadow Dancer " Dancer" and ASCA, AKC Ch. Show-Me's Dream
Catcher "Chase". Dancer and Chase were both owner / handled. Amy and Dancer garnered 30
BOB, 17 BOS, 2 Group 2's, 1 Group 3, and 3 Group 4's with ASCA and in the beginning of Aussies
being recognized with AKC. In 1994 they won BOS at the ASCA National Specialty in Scottsdale
Arizona over 281 bitches, and 1997 they won an Award Of Merit at Westminster against some very
tough competition! Throughout our web page you can see the Aussies we have in the present as
well as the past.

We hope you enjoy your visit to Show-Me's home on the web! Feel free to call or email with any
questions you may have about any of our dogs.
