We have joined Pets911 and attend their adoption events to help educate the public about Merle-to-Merle breeding of Australian Shepherds. Approximately, 1-in-4 pups (but we've seen much higher statistics) will be born a Lethal White.
Aussielads Aussie Rescue sets up a table for the Lethal White Awareness Campaign to distribute materials and help educate the public about the dangers of Merle-to-Merle breeding of Australian Shepherds. Also on hand were several of the wonderful lethals who are now in loving homes, but always join us in demonstrating the visual impairments caused by the breeding. At the same time, it gives everyone an opportunity to see how smart and loving these dogs can be, and to let people know the ones that already exist deserve a second chance in a forever home.

Please help us stop this tragic breeding! We are being contacted from all over the US with pleas of help to save these babies. Together, we can stop them from ever being born simply by educating. Visit some of the Lethals-in-need located across the country.
We have printable materials to hand out to make the public aware of what happens in Merle-to-Merle breeding. Please, be a part of the solution, help educate. For printable materials, click here.
