We got Bandit from Jamie, a wonderful first-time breeder in charge at Makana Mini Aussies in Vancouver, WA. Jamie and her family own Bandit's mom, Gracie, and dad, Joey. Bandit was one of nine puppies in this litter born April 7, 2009! This was Gracie's first time being a mom, and she did an excellent job!! Thank you, Jamie, for letting me use some of your wonderful photos!
This is Gracie with her entire litter of newborns:
This is Gracie. Isn't she beautiful! She's 19-3/8" tall and weighs 40 pounds.
This is Bandit's dad, Joey. He's such a handsome merle Aussie. He's 16-3/4" tall and weighs 32 pounds. Bandit will most likely take after his dad in height and weight since he was the smallest of Gracie's litter.
This is newborn Bandit (so cute!):
