Breeding Programs at Rising Sun Farm

Rising Sun Farm is a small, family owned and operated breeder of Border Collies and Australian Shepherds.  We live and work on the premises and are committed to consistently producing healthy dogs with excellent temperament, structure, and intelligence. We promote proactive health maintenance, including health testing, DNA and CEA testing, and veterinary care.  All of our puppies are fully vaccinated and come with health guarantees.

Our genetics are among the best in the world.  Our dogs are highly regarded and excel in all venues. A few times per year, through carefully planned breedings, we produce a few world class quality litters and deliver our puppies to loving homes and ranches around the world.
