H3 Aussies is owned by Jennifer and Jacob Crowley. We own a 90 acre farm in the Pineywoods of East Texas and run a small but growing commercial cow-calf operation. As we added more cattle and established more pasture, we discovered a need for a good cow dog. Neither myself nor Jacob had any stockdog experience and needed a dog that wouldn’t require much training but could also be at ease with our family as we have 3 small children.
We started with Australian Shepherds in 2012; however, it wasn’t until January 2015 that we obtained our first real working bred male, Gus, from H Cross Aussies that we really began to appreciate the breed for what it was originally bred for. Since then we have added two females: Honey, our Slash V female, and Tody, another H Cross addition. We did not take the decision to breed lightly. We strive to produce a well-rounded farm/ranch dog that can work in the pasture all day if need be and still be a part of the family in their downtime.
We are dedicated to preserving the original working Aussie. We have placed pups across the US and Switzerland. Our pups have been placed anywhere from small cattle operations to working rank rodeo stock to nuisance geese wranglers to trialing homes.
