The Thornapple Family of Australian Shepherds

Our Aussies devote their lives to fulfilling yours.

We have great stories of triumph as well as tragedy in all of our years breeding Aussies. Through it all we have tried to improve the breed and produce the best quality dogs possible. We stand behind every dog we sell, as we consider every Thornapple Aussie owner part of our family. 

Located in Michigan, Thornapple Australian Shepherds was founded in 1980 by Ellen Brandenburg and Amy Garrison. We have proudly spent many years breeding great dogs that have become champion show dogs all over the world as well as dearly loved companions.
