Included here are some of our crew that have helped to shape our program, either directly by way of foundation, or indirectly when goals (not) so simply didn't work out. In the case of the latter, those 'pup's' have either been placed into loving companion homes once s/n, or are very happily continuing to enjoy their lives here with us and the rest of the Fortis crew.

Teiko has been spayed after two litters and we will continue to move forward with her offspring. Thus far, Teiko has produced CKC Champions, CKC GR Champions, Group Winning, Multiple Group Placing, Multiple Puppy Group Winning, Multiple Baby Puppy Group Winning as well as Agility titled offspring from two different sires. Importantly , beautiful companions that keep both us as well as their humans on their toes ;)
We are very excited to see what the future holds for her progeny and Teiko will be keeping a close eye on them as well as she will be staying here with us at Fortis Australian Shepherds.

Ryu is a very special girl to us. Full of smiles butt wiggles grunts & groans! Ryu, unfortunately was not destined to be part of the breeding world, and has been placed in a very wonderful and loving home. One, which we couldn't be happier with! We are happy to get updates of 'who bear' and while unfortunate for us, we feel that both Ryu and her new humans both hit the jackpot with her placement :)

Happy girl Kiyo. Kiyo is our quirky girl, who takes wiggling (or in her case) dancing to a whole new level! Kiyo literally will (what we call) dances while between your legs-which is a challenge if one is on the shorter side, as she is a larger girl ;) Full of views, Kiyo doesn't hesitate to let you know if she disapproves of one of the others behaviors, and is quick to make you laugh with hers! One of her (many) nick names is moo (or moo, moo) for her grunts & and groans (oh dramatic one!) Kiyo is a character, and isn't shy about being silly either!
