** Please NOTE ** Our Australian Shepherd dogs/puppies  or any of their offspring and so forth are NOT available for adoption as any other breed other than Australian Shepherd.  They are not to go into AKC FSS as "Miniature American Shepherds".
We raise "Australian Shepherds" in a variety of sizes, registered with AKC and enrolled in the AKC Puppy Protection Program.
Some may be dual eligible registration with ASCA, ASASC, IMASC, ASDR, NSDR.  

All puppies adopted/purchased from Diamond K5 are obligated and required to use the Diamond K5 as a Prefix to the Puppy’s Registered Name (Diamond K5 Puppy Name; ie: Diamond K5 Mossy Oak Cowgirl) and in some cases a second kennel name may be included.

Diamond K5 tries at its best to stay in the smaller size range with our Aussies  of 15" to 20" BUT We offer NO guarantee on the size of your puppy as all sizes are possible.  Quality will not to be sacrificed in favor of size.

A MUST Read **


Once the deposit is made and received by Diamond K5 you are in agreement of purchasing said puppy/dog.  If you decide to not get said puppy/dog you relinquish said deposit as stated above "NON-REFUNDABLE",

The difference between limited and full registration:
Limited is an agreement that "You" will have the pup spayed/neutered
at the appropriate age before a year old. 

Full is you are getting a breeding and/or show dog and guaranteed it will produce a litter. 

For protection of our dogs/puppies and sanitary reasons we no longer allow puppy visits.  Parvo and distemper are at a very high risk in our county as well as other contagious diseases throughout the state and country which are deadly to puppies.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Diamond K5
