Hi, I’m Misty 😊. I realize it can be a scary situation
purchasing a puppy from someone that you don’t know the first thing about so I
would like to tell you a little bit about myself.
I grew up in Michigan with dogs, cats, rabbits,
and parakeets. I have always been an
animal lover. I worked at the Humane
Society Vet Clinic for a few years and learned so much there and my love for
all animals just grew stronger. As an adult,
I took a weekend trip to NYC and fell in love with Manhattan. I came back to Michigan, turned in my two-week
notice, sold most of my belongings, and 3 weeks later I was driving a U-Haul
across country chasing my dreams.
I made a great life for myself in NYC. I made lifelong friendships, and met my
incredible husband (we’ll get back to that).
I lived there for 10 years and had the amazing opportunity to work for
Stuart Parr Design/Cousins Entertainment.
I was the Financial Controller for all merchandise for the musician/rapper
Eminem. I also worked as the Operations
Manager for The Loreen Arbus Foundation, which was a truly wonderful experience.
In 2011 I met my husband who was born and raised
in Queens. A year later we found
ourselves on the beach in Turks and Caicos saying our vows. He really wanted to leave the city and move
to my home state, and us both being fortunate enough to have jobs that allowed
us to work from home, I agreed and we packed up and headed to Michigan. We bought a beautiful home on 10 acres and
purchased our first Toy Aussie, Loki. We
fell in love with him instantly and I immediately started to research the breed
more in depth as it has always been a dream of mine to be a hobby breeder.
Over time, we
realized that we had a great deal to offer the Toy Aussie world. As a result, we
decided to breed, top quality Toy Australian Shepherds. We located a mentor dedicated to the
same principles and ethics as ours, who helped us start breeding these amazing
dogs. Our Toy Australian Shepherd puppies are born and raised in our loving
home in Southeast Michigan. We are about an hour North of Detroit.
I eventually made the hard decision to resign from my work-at-home job as our program grew so I could really put 100%
into my dogs. My husband works from home
(He is the Editor-of-Chief of over 16 magazines for a Publishing Company located
in Nashville, TN). He is a tremendous
help and a very big part of raising these babies. All of our dogs are considered to be part of
our family. They live in our house, not a kennel. We have one 100 x 50 fenced
in grassy area and a second one that is 50 x 50 that they love to spend hours
running, playing, and jumping in and out of their kiddie pools! I spend a couple of hours per day with each puppy training and socializing them. They are
pampered and 100% spoiled! They are nurtured from the moment they take their
first breath until the very last second when they go to their fur-ever home. We
fall in love with each and every one of them so I am very careful to select
safe, loving homes for my puppies.
I make myself available
to all of my buyers and potential buyers at almost any time and offer lifetime support. Texting/Emailing will get you the quickest
response. I have made friendships with
most of my buyers who I am so appreciative that they send me regular
updates. Just because a pup of ours goes
to a new home doesn’t mean we forget about them. We think about them all the time and are so
grateful whenever we hear from their new families.
I feel very blessed
and I thank you for visiting my website and for considering purchasing a pup
from us. I post lots of photos and
videos on my Toy Aussie Facebook Page and Instagram so please feel free to
follow and join the fun!
We’d love to have
you join our family. 😊
