Topeka Australian Shepherds
I am no longer breeding Australian Shepherds but thank you for your interest in this site
Etta owned and loved by Hannah Whyman
Topeka Rocky River owned and loved by Laura Adams
I have owned and lived with Australian Shepherds for 25 years. In 1998 my friend Linda Whyman (Remuda) and myself jointly financed to bring a new bloodline into the UK. Please see Grit on her own page as the foundation of Topeka.
We occasionally breed for progression of our kennel however if you are interested in a puppy from these wonderful working blood lines then you are welcome to contact me.
Enjoy your visit,

Having a blast
Me with Roosta gaining 96 points on his first leg of his started sheep title at the ASCA trial.
UKs first ASCA trial
A huge thank you to Jackie (All Breeds Herding) for making this day possible. Making history in the UK this weekend by holding, organising and training us. Changing stock for every run was I am sure a pain in the bum. Next time we need that Kelpie entered ? Special thanks also must go to Mikael Hageus who is an enthusiastic driving force and a guy to have on side. And I am sure many will know Roy Sage outside of the UK, but we could not have got a more experienced lovely guy, the 2 day clinic was a huge learning curve. I count myself very lucky to have been involved and to have a youngster that will not give up despite of me. I can now sit in a corner staring at a blank wall for the next couple of days to help me come down to earth, A huge congrats to Vikki with Blanche (Roostas sister at 14 months old) and Bandit, Also Liz Hulley and her black gal Pitch and Mandie Gibson and her lovely red gal Kanga. Also a mention to Gail Hodgson for being mine and Vikki's supporter, and having chocolate cake and a cuppa at the ready ...............may have to use your cattle in the future

Statement re so called Miniature Australian Shepherds
So called *Miniature Australian Shepherds* have been imported into the country. ASCA the original parent club of the Australian Shepherd and the largest single breed registry in the world and USASA (The American Kennel Club registered parent club) does *not recognise* these. The Australian Shepherd does *NOT* have VARIETIES. These *should* not be registered as Australian Shepherds with the K.C. either on the breed register or the activity / working register because they are NOT Australian Shepherds and do NOT hold Australian Shepherd registration papers with either the AKC or ASCA
Under no circumstances will any dog owned, co-owned or bred by Topeka Australian Shepherds be sold for use in a so called miniature breeding program as we firmly believe these breeds to be two separate, individual breeds and do not advocate cross breeding.
