74 Ranch Males!
(click each name for more pictures)
Most of our males live in guardian homes!
They go through STRICT evaluations before staying in our breeding program. They MUST do super on structure and personality evaluations as well as clear health testing.  We are looking for athletic dogs that have very balanced outgoing personalities and the structure to hold up for many years doing performance events as well as win in the show ring.  
***ALL OUR DOGS ARE WICKETED for height - the heights listed are ACCURATE!***

Most of our males stand to outside females!!! Be sure to inquire!
