Treat me kindly my beloved friend, for no heart
in the entire world
is more grateful for your kindness than mine.
Don’t be angry with me for long, and don’t strike

After all, you have your job, your friends, and
I only have you.

Whoever said that Mini Aussies are hyper active, better take a look at Tater and Spirit!
It is very typical for Mini Aussies to mirror the energy level of their human family members, and whereever their humans are is where they want to be..
"Our two Mini Aussies at 4 1/2 years old are doing great. It is amazing how well they get along together. When we go on vacation, of course they always go with us. Spirit and Tater are great travelers and well known in many stores where we shop.... " The Druff Family

Abby is on the left she is 38 pounds Gibbs is on the right at 23 pounds. It was a shock that they are so different. Everyone always think that Abby is the mother. They are a blessing thank you!

Judy, I believed you when you told me how incredibly intelligent these mini aussies are… but you never said they could TALK!!! Lol. If I wanted a smarty pants kid that was going to talk and talk back to me, I would have given birth to one…lol. You know how they say dogs and owners start to look alike. I guess in my case, instead of looking like me she turned into a wise cracker like me…lol. You ask if you can publish her pictures... You may absolutely publish her pictures in your "Happy Customers" page. You can also publish her picture in the “My Mommy is a Sucker” page, in the “I’m too cute for my own spots” page and the “you must adore me or I will become indignant” page… all equally apply. LOL
Bleu’s herding instinct is very strong - so much so she has become mommy’s little helper. If I yell at any of the cats for doing something they are not supposed to… Bleu springs into action and reprimands them, and usually she either yells at them too, gives them a bump with her nose, a paw on their back or just runs them back over the gate. Sometimes it's annoying when she does it but let’s face it in 4 days I’ll be 48… I don’t move like I used to…
Sincerely, Bleu Belle’s overprotective and very loving Mommy. Catherine M, NJ
Isabella is just over 10 lbs and I love her, she is the BEST dog I have ever owned....she goes everywhere with me-including the Gallery in which I am director of. She has visitors returning to see her often.....she is usually found lounging across my desk :)

I decided that I wanted to find out
how much he weighed, so I set him on our home

him a treat. Later I told him let's go weigh...he
trotted in there and set on the scales. Today I
told him the same thing and off he goes. Each time
I give him a treat. Later I missed him and went
looking for him. Guess where he was! In the
utility room sitting on the scales, boy does he have

"Rowdy - He's the smartest dog I've ever had!"
Buying a puppy from the Internet is a scary and
daunting task. Just by searching for breeders you
may have come across horror stories of buying
unhealthy puppies. This (in combination of being 8
short months from receiving my DVM) is what prompted
me to ask tons of questions of any breeder I came
across before I looked at any puppy pictures...
Because we all know that a cute puppy skews all
reasoning. After several months of searching I had
almost given up. As soon as I found the Rocking 2R's
web page I read everything Judy had posted. I came
up with several questions and called her. She
greeted me like we had known each other forever.
She answered all my questions honestly and did not
dance around the truth. I was impressed with her
dedication to her pets and her willingness to talk
Judy has complete medical records for all the
and she has all of her adults tested for all of the
potential "Aussie" problems (hip evaluation, eye
evaluation, and MDR). She will willingly tell you
what each dog's result is as well. She was even
willing to drive my pup to town and have his eyes
evaluated because I was worried about Merle ocular
problems. Needless to say I was sold on getting an
Aussie from Judy before she even had any pups
available. At the time it was likely that I would
have to wait 6 months to get the color I wanted and
I was fine with it because no one else could
Judy's commitment to her dogs is very apparent even
beyond the medical aspect. She is always willing to
talk about her dogs even when it means emailing you
back in the middle of the night. Often when you talk
to her on the phone you can hear the dogs in the
background because she is working in the kennel or
they will all be in the house cuddling.
We drove to pick Rowdy up and were allowed to meet
the whole crew and her husband, George, and spend
time in the pristine kennel.
Rowdy has been such a joy to be around and is the
smartest dog I've ever had. He has only been
with us a couple weeks and is potty trained, he can
sit, lay down, rollover, shake and paw.
Judy made the experience of buying a dog long
distance a great experience and I will likely be a
repeat customer! Lauren Otto, MO
"Domino - We just love him to pieces!"
"Sired by Aussieland R2R Valedictorian out of Sassy

excellent health and he is one spoiled pup! He knows
many commands now such as sit, stay, down, shake,
and come, as well as the names of several of his
toys. He is very smart and very very sweet! We just
love him to pieces! When I go to visit my
parents he LOVES to play with their standard Aussie,
Dundee. They are best friends! I have attached a
photo of him sleeping back to back with Dundee and
another picture of him by himself. Thank you for
breeding such a wonderful dog! He is very loved and
we are all very happy together! Thank you

"Henri," Princess of the Lo Family
"Henri and I have
just completed six weeks of training with a
private dog trainer. As expected, she learned
very very quickly...only one or two times of
showing her how to do something and she would
get it. We have spent five hours shopping and
walking around downtown Palo Alto, including an
hour at a sit down out door restaurant and she
behaved beautifully. Everybody told me that it
is remarkable that she is so calm given her
young age. There is not a day that goes by
where someone doesn't tell me how beautiful
Henri is. She was an adorable and beautiful
puppy and has grown to be even more beautiful as
a young dog. I am not biased, but she could
possibly be one of the most beautiful dogs out
of your kennel! I love having Henri in my life.
She brings me much joy." Lilly Lo,

"After the loss of my
13 year old Golden Retriever, I felt like it would
be awhile before I was ready to raise another
puppy. I researched the Miniature Australian
Shepherd for a few weeks and decided when I was
ready for a puppy; this was the breed I felt would
best fit our family. I searched for breeders in our
area and was unable to locate any that had puppies
that would be available around spring. I decided to
turn to the Internet and came across this beautiful
little boy at the Rocking 2R site…"Mr. Tucker" was
such a handsome little fellow that I couldn’t resist
calling to see if he was still available! After
speaking with Mrs. Judy, I knew that I had found a
reputable and caring breeder and that I was ready to
have a puppy fill the void of not having a pet in
our household. She was more than willing to answer
any questions that I had and provided me with
information that helped me prepare for Tucker’s
Words cannot even
express how much happiness and fun this little puppy
has brought to our home! He is such a smart boy and
goes out of his way to please us. He started puppy
obedience classes in January and graduated after
only 5 classes…he was then moved to the intermediate
classes. We are always trying to find new ways to
entertain him and challenge him mentally…he keeps us
on our toes. He was housebroken in 2 weeks and has
not had an accident since then! His “kennel area”
is in our laundry room and he hangs out there while
his mom and dad are at work. His favorite toys are
his Puppy Kong and Buster Cube…he loves cheerios and
apples! For the first few months, he had a friend
come by every day that let him outside to potty and
play, but now he is able to entertain himself
without any accidents until mom gets home! He is
truly a blessing in our lives and I am so glad that
I found him when I did!
If you are
considering purchasing a puppy through the Internet,
please be careful and make sure you are purchasing
your new family member from a breeder that cares
about their pups and has a good reputation…you will
most definitely achieve this through Mrs. Judy! I
am asked quite often about where I purchased Tucker
and I always make sure that I have Mrs. Judy’s web
address and phone number in my purse. These puppies
are truly special because they have such a special
person that raises them!!" The Welborn's

you would enjoy to see how she has grown. Right now

An absolutely great experience
"Although somewhat reluctant, I decided to buy my
mini aussie Gus from an internet seller. What an
absolute great experience it turned into. Judy is a
great lady and absolutely loves to talk about her
"babies". She was never too busy to answer our
questions and was always available. She was as
nervous as we were on Gus' flight day. Our puppy
arrived in perfect health, with a great disposition
and personality. I strongly recommend Judy and
Rocking2R aussies to anyone looking for a great
addition to their family." John and
Maverick - Super Dog
So eager to please, so quick to catch
on, he was a breeze to train!
"We are so very impressed with Maverick!!!
I've grown up with dogs all my life. We've
had several different breeds from AKC
Keeshonds, Labradors and mutts, big dogs to
small dogs and we've loved them all. But
I've never seen any dog so smart, so easy to
train and eager to please! From the moment
we got Maverick, he was constantly our
shadow, following us loyally wherever we
went. So eager to please, so quick to catch
on, he was a breeze to train! So much so
that when we went to sign him up for puppy
training classes we ran into a problem. By
the time we waited to get his rabies shot,
Maverick had already learned everything they
were going to teach in the puppy class. We
asked to move up to the next level - the
beginner class - and Maverick already knew
all those tricks, too. We finally signed up
for private classes not because Maverick
needed to be trained, but because I didn't
know any more tricks to teach him!Before
Maverick was 5 months old, he knew how to
sit, lay down, shake, stay, reach up for a
high five , bark, crawl, turn in circles
(both clock wise and counter clock wise),
beg, jump thru a hoop, retrieve, catch a
frisbee most of the time - at least when I
throw it correctly! Maverick understands
the words: come, bye-bye, hungry, drink,
walk, park, up, go stairs, night-night,
kisses, ball, toy, find it, bring it, drop
it, frisbee, find us (Maverick even plays
'hide and seek' - we hide and he finds us).
Maverick is learning to put his toys in the
basket at night (we just show him which one
to pick up), he is currently learning to
play dead , bow, roll over and even say his
prayers. He is far and away the most
amazing dog we've ever known!!! Maverick
even rings a bell to let us know he wants to
go outside!!!! "
"He is very affectionate - loves to be
scratched behind the ears or have his belly
rubbed! He is just as eager to give you
kisses! He also loves to romp and play with
our son - Maverick is very fast!!!! He
and our son chase each other, play tug of
war and rough house often, but all we have
to do is say "sweet" and instantly Maverick
is gentle, loving and ready to snuggle. As
much as he loves to play, he is equally
content to doze quietly at your feet or
cuddle with you as you watch TV. He blows
We recently had the privilege of puppy
sitting for about a month till we could
donate a dog to a guide dog program. Quite
a fun and rewarding experience, but one that
gave us a crash course in the differences in
breeders. We purchased a different puppy
at a charity auction and planned to donate
her to a guide dog program; thought we were
just doing a good deed. We simply took that
breeder's word about the quality and
condition of the dogs. Our initial donation
became significantly more costly after we
visited our vet. We found out all too late
the pup was pretty sick; bad case of worms,
bladder infection and respiratory issues as
well. The 'breeder' had separated the
litter from their mother after only 3 weeks,
so the pup was not socialized at all. The
puppy was so bad we could not in good
conscience donate it until we were sure she
was fully recovered; healthy and would not
bite anyone. Thanks to his expert care and
a few weeks of expensive medicine, our vet
made sure she was completely healthy. But
she was still a bit unpredictable - licking
you one minute, biting you the next. Even
though Maverick was only a puppy himself, we
were astonished to see how he became both
teacher and surrogate parent to this new
little pup. Within 3 weeks, Maverick had
her well socialized - no more biting - much
better manners and he had her ready to
learn. Maverick even taught the new pup to
ring the bell - though to be honest, the new
puppy didn't know why she was ringing
it!!!! Thanks to Maverick we were even able
to teach the new puppy to sit and we were
working on lay down before we were able to
give her away. To be totally fair, I had
not done any research or background checks
on that breeder at all. We researched
breeds and breeders for over a year before
we bought Maverick. Please know there is a
big difference in quality of breeders. We
found out the hard way not everyone
certifies their breeding stock for hip or
eye problems. Not everyone cares enough
to provide high quality dog food - some
actually use the generic dog food at the
oversized discount stores. Not all breeders
take the time and effort to socialize their
new puppies. Some don't keep their
whelping and/or elimination areas clean and
disinfected. Some don’t ever take their new
litters to be checked out by a real vet -
they just try to guess and treat the new
pups themselves to save money.
Please don't let just a cute cuddly face
make all your decisions for you. Puppies
are cute, but you need to do the research to
make sure your puppy will be a healthy, well
socialized, quality member of your family
for a long, long time! When we bought the
other pup, even my daughter noticed just
because you don't spay and neuter your pets,
does not make you a good breeder. There is
a difference!!! Talk with the Reynolds, do
some checking, see for yourself and you will
find as we did, that Rocking 2R is far and
away the best place to buy your new
dogs!!!! We did research before we bought
Maverick and the difference in quality is
night and day!!!! We spent a bit more on
him as a puppy, but less on him in medical
bills!!!!! The little extra money up front
is more than worth it to know you have
purchased a healthy, well bred, intelligent,
well socialized, quality dog!!! Ms. Judy
and Mr. George take exceptional care of
their dogs. They love and pamper each dog
and each of their puppies!!!! Their dogs
are certified for eyes and hips, they are
breeding dogs not only for great looks, but
for loving temperaments and high
intelligence! You get not only registration
papers, but full pedigrees. You also get
years of experience - the Reynolds are
always there if you have any questions or
concerns. More than getting a puppy, you
are getting a new member of your family and
you are also getting wonderful new
friends!!! Ms. Judy is very particular
about her babies!!!! There is a
difference! We will never buy another dog
from anyone else other than Rocking 2R!
We know you will be just as thrilled with
your Rocking 2R puppy as we are!"

"Dear Prospective Rocking 2R Puppy Purchaser,
We purchased our Red Merle male (Foster) over two
years ago from Judy at Rocking 2R. We couldn’t be
more pleased with him and Judy’s decision to allow
us to purchase him from her. We drove 1,710 miles
roundtrip to get him. We would never allow a puppy
to be shipped if at all possible. Consider yourself
fortunate if Judy does allow you to purchase one of
her puppies. She is very particular about who gets
to adopt one of her puppies. Before we were allowed
to purchase Foster I was very pleased to find out
how deeply she cared about interviewing potential
owners to make sure the puppies were going to get a
This breed of dog requires a tremendous amount of
energy on your part to properly exercise them. They
love lots of outdoor running and playing. We take
Foster to the forest preserves twice a day for his
exercise. These dogs love the water and are great
swimmers. They are loyal companions and protectors
of your home. They are friendly but wary of
strangers. They are great with kids and always will
keep a watchful eye on them. They love to be trained
and learn very quickly. We’ve put our dog through
obedience training and several agility training
programs. They love to perform and my gosh are they
really fast. If you love dogs, they will give their
love back to you may times over. They always want to
please you and will be next to your side looking for
a kind hand to pet them if they are not sleeping.
You can’t go wrong with one of Rocking 2R’s puppies.
I just hope you are worthy enough to be selected to
purchase one. We’ve purchased several breeds of dogs
(Miniature Schnauzers and Shar Peis) over the past 25
years and always purchased them from private
breeders like Rocking 2R. I can honestly say that I
have never come across a breeder who cared more
about where their puppies will spend the rest of
their lives and how much they care for them even
after they are sold. Whenever Judy and I talk, she
always asks about Foster and how he’s doing. We send
her pictures and give her an update about his life.
We are now hooked on Miniature Australian Shepherds
and would only purchase one from Rocking 2R when we
decide to get another one of these fabulous dogs.
Take care of your Miniature Australian Shepherd,"
The Laban Family
Dear prospective Mini Aussie owner,
"I first met Judy Reynolds in July 2003. We were
looking for a special buddy for our deaf Blue merle,
We had lost our long time friend, Savvy, 3 months
earlier. Skye was going through a severe depression.
We knew we had to find her a new buddy. Even though
she is deaf we were impressed at how smart he is in
picking up sign language. (She was our 1st mini
Aussie) We decided we needed to see just how smart a
hearing mini Aussie might be. Somehow, I got Judy's
name and called her. She interviewed me, (she is
very dedicated in making sure her puppies go to good
homes), then invited me to her ranch to see the 2, 5
month old male red merle's that she had. We took
Skye with us, I wanted to make sure that whoever we
chose would be compatible with her.
We ended up choosing our Chili because of the way he
responded to Skye. From the first day it was as if
he knew it was his "job" to look out for her. I
never had to housebreak him. He will not beg at the
table when you are eating. His is very protective of
Skye and his family. Chili is highly intelligent and
listens well, is easy to train, loves to play ball &
Frisbee. His favorite activity is anything to do
with water, he loves to swim!
If you are considering a mini Aussie I would highly
recommend this breed. I would especially recommend
getting your dog from Judy. How she handles her
puppies from birth until you get them, is testament
to how dedicated she is to producing a wonderful
dog. Her dogs are well socialized and are extremely
easy to handle & train. I cannot say enough good
things about Judy & her "babies". By no means am I a
mini Aussie expert, but we have 3 now and know there
is no other breed of dog for us. Should you have any
questions, please feel free to contact me at
I wish you much joy with your new puppy and hope
that you will have as much pleasure & love from your
puppy as Chili has given us."
I can’t wait to get another one!!
"My dog, Jake, has been exposed to a lot of training
since I got him from Judy last November. He has been
to herding seminars, training classes, and much more
over the last few months. Everyone we are around
KNOWS AUSSIES and I get more compliments on how
natural Jake looks and how unbelievable his
mannerisms are. He’s not just smart, he blows my
mind!!! This breed is known for high intellect, but
he puts the other Aussies (standard and Mini) to
shame. Each time I get compliments on my
Mini-Aussie, I say, “Hey, it’s all in the breeding!”
Thanks Judy, I couldn’t be happier with you and your
professional and high class breeding of these
