    ALIYAH AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERDS

  • WHO WE ARE

    Aliyah is a small hobby kennel located in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I am dedicated to conserving the versatile Australian Shepherd, focusing on maintaining the breed standard, with emphasis on excellence in temperament and structure. Approved in 1998, "Aliyah" is a permanently Registered Kennel Name with the Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA) and "Aliyah" is also a registered kennel name with the American Kennel Club (AKC). I am proud to be recognized as an ASCA Provisional Breeder Judge, and I am also an AKC Breeder Of Merit.

  • I Challenge You

    by Lynne C. Skinner

     

                    I challenge you...to find tolerance instead of criticism. Even with a breed standard, we all have our

    own preferences, which are not necessarily better than someone else's just different.

     

                    I challenge you...to find respect instead of contempt when a breeder says that they have hip, eye or other

    problems show up in their line. Unless we can identify problems, we cannot prevent them from destroying our breed.

     

                    I challenge you...to find the courage to protect this wonderful breed by honestly and openly offering information on possible genetic problems that you find in your bloodlines. By getting this information quickly to research, it will be just that much sooner that new tests can be developed to identify these problem areas quickly and effectively.

     

                    I challenge you...to embrace the fellowship of our breed clubs. We are a diverse group with different ideas on many things who have come together for the love of this breed. Listen to one another. Learn from one another. Bond together to educate all who ask about this unique breed...for WE are the guardians of its future.

     

    LITTER ANNOUNCEMENTS!

    After almost 30 years in this marvelous breed, these two upcoming breedings will be my last here at Aliyah. I am excited to announce….

                                                         

    MBIS MRBIS BISS AKC GCHG CH Reinem-N-Dynamic Drake…”Drake”

    (AKC CH Graffiti’s Houligan Cowboy X Sunbeam’s Maybelline of Reinem)

     

    has been bred to

     

    AKC CH/ASCA CH Aliyah’s Song Of My Heart…”Juli”

    (AKC GCH/CKC CH/ASCA CH Aliyah’s Heartbreak Ridge X Aliyah Gimme A Dry Martini)

     

    I want to thank Monique Hetterscheidt of Reinem-n Kennels for letting me bring “Juli” to her handsome “Drake”. This should be a stunning combination of structure and temperament. “Drake” has a sweet, teddy bear personality and “Juli” is a tiny bit drivey, toy affectionato, which should make for some very fun loving puppies that can do it all.

     

    If all goes well, puppies should be born the end of October, 2022 and be ready to go to their new homes the end of December. Watch for updates as they become available.
