About Us
My husband Mike and I got our first Miniature Australian Shepherd in 2002.  She was a beautiful red tri we got from Linderland Kennels.  Judy Linder was on the road at the time, so we picked her up at Lynn Gray's Bluegrass Kennels South Dakota. It was love at first sight.  We were also fortunate to have formed wonderful friendships with both Lynn and Judy.  We thank them both for sharing their knowlege and their experience with us.  

We have met so many wonderful people since we began this journey.  It has been so much fun to go to shows, seminars, puzzlings, and sometimes just get togethers with our friends.  A big thanks to Carla Lewis of Alta Vista, she has been a dear friend to us.  

I am also happy to have my long time friend Jackie Lotker join us in our fun.  She got her first show dog in 2009 and hasn't looked back!  She and her husband Lynn have been a lot of fun at shows and I look forward to many more good times!

Please take your time and browse our site.  We do our best to keep it updated.  Thank you for visiting us at Heartland.
