Tessa's 1st Litter - Born 9.17.2014
We're very excited to share deatils on our first litter of Aussie puppies born at WWT Ranch. Tessa finished giving birth to 4 healthy puppies at around 3:00 AM the morning of Thursday, September 18th, 2014. She had the first puppy late Wednesday night around 11:00.
From the start, she's been a great mother. She attends to them well and is very protective, yet still is okay with our 2 year old playing with them. (She keeps a "very close watch" whenever he is near her pups though.)
With the extremely late night, we gave the pups temporary names after some of our favorite alcoholic beverages; Jack, Gin (Jin), Jamison and Bailey.
The sire of the litter is "Dan" who came all the way to Oregon from Canada to become the sire of this litter. We were extremely pleased to meet Dan and his great owners and believe the combination of Tessa and Dan's herding abilities and temperments should be great pets and workers.
With the okay from each pup owner, we'll pass on their updates on how they are doing.
Bailey - Blue Merle Female
Jack - Blue Merle Male
Below is a video of Jack at about 3 weeks of age. They are sure quick to go from quiet, crawling pups to walking, cute and active puppies.
