We compete in conformation (AKC, CKC and UKC), occasionally obedience and we usually have a Therapy Dog running around. We are also active in fostering an occasional Aussie or Crested when we don't have a full house. Our dogs are loving house companions and we strive to breed for sound temperaments, structure and health. Our Miniature American Shepherds (Mini Aussies) are tested for MDR1, PRA prcd, HC, DM and CEA as well as OFA for hips, elbows, eyes and Patellas. Cresteds are PRA, PLL and OFA Patellas tested. We do not breed often, but when we do, it is carefully researched and planned, always trying to adhere to the breed's standard. All potential homes must complete a questionaire with references to ensure a good match. Puppies sold as pets/companions are sold on a spay/neuter contract with limited registration to dedicated, loving homes. These dogs can still compete in all performance events. Occasionally a pup will be sold on a full registration to a home wishing to compete in conformation, under a private treaty.
Being a groomer, the pups are exposed to many breeds of dogs, and meet many different people and critters for better socialization skills. They are handled constantly, pre-spoiled and raised in our home under foot. Over the years we have made many good friends through this world of dogs.
Welcome to Fairway Farm
Nestled deep in the woods of Downeast Maine is where we call home. Our names are Arty and Linda Malaussena. Arty is an avid golfer, hence the name. He says he had to remember where he came from since the dogs have "taken over". We are proud members of ASCA, MASCUSA and our local club, Coastal Crescent
Kennel Club. Fairway is a registered name with ASCA.
