Sugar, Sugar Baby, Sugar Bear, we have lots of nicknames for her, but one thing is for certain: she has spunk and personality. Sugar Baby lives in her forever home with Jennifer and Aaron in Bloomington, Indiana. She’s what we call a “Guardian dog” just like Robin. Sugar lives with her Winnie X Ares AussieDoodle sister, named “Winnie Jr”. She has a fun life with Jennifer, Aaron, and their 4 kids. Sugar goes to Tom’s house every few months for “vacations” and hangs out with Tom and family. Sugar is just as comfortable at either home. Sugar will also go to Tom’s house when it’s time to have puppies. Sugar puppies are little dream dogs and seem to have Sugar’s fun and loving personality.
What can we say about Sugar? How much time do you have? I could talk about her all day. You’ve probably seen her in some of our videos, like our “what to do and what not to do” Video. She’s a doll baby. She’s gentle with kids, shes affectionate, and she loves her frizbee. When the kids come up to her she will roll right on to her back and let them rub her belly. Sugar wants to be near you, but she’s not annoyingly needy. She has an independent side and she loves to go in the back yard on her own and explore. She is pretty quiet; doesn’t whine or bark often. If you’re sitting at the kitchen Island, the next thing you know, she’ll be sleeping at your feet and you never knew she was there. I’ve NEVER seen her snap at another dog, however she will take up for herself when her big sister Winnie tries to boss her around. Sugar likes to come lie by you on the couch and she sleeps in the bed most of the time. She loves her affection but on her own terms. Sugar puppies will be in the 20lb range, but she does NOT have any “small dog” behaviors. She acts just like full size Aussie, but in a smaller package. Usually, I won’t recommend a 20lb dog if you want a dog for hiking or frizbee. But Sugar is an exception. She loves to play frizbee and will keep bringing it back as long as you will throw it to her. She gets so excited she spins round and round until you throw it. She’s learned to hold her head up so the disc doesn’t drag the ground as she brings it back to you. I would recommend her puppies for anyone who wants a smaller dog, with all the fun, intelligence, and athletics of a large dog. When you take Sugar to the store, she’s happy to meet people. When people come to the house, she is a little “watch dog” at first, letting you know someone is here. It takes her a minute to warm up, but as soon as she knows the stranger is a friend, she will cautiously walk up to them for some petting. Once she’s on her back getting belly rubs, she’s your best friend.
