about us

Black Tie Affair, BTA, was established to offer the highest quality animals to your family. As pet owners ourselves, we know exactly what you expect, and we make it our mission to deliver. We provide the best in health and structure so you may enjoy the small moments life offers and a long journey with your new family addition. We understand the need to feel comfortable, safe, and companionship whether you are single or have a family. We undertake the task of finding an animal that has the temperament to suit your needs, as friendship, protection, enjoyment, and devotion all are strong qualities within our entire family here. Each animal here is given the utmost care because excuses to not give proper care to an animal we expect so much love from is intolerable.

We have a variety of animals here each one unique and rare, with their own personalities. Whether your search is for a canine that is bold, proud and fierce when a threat is present, but also soft, devoted, and endearing to his family. Or even a feline that while is self-assured, balanced, and independent, has a quiet and loyal love towards you. Maybe you tend toward the exotic and one of our incredibly rare and fun loving sheep would appeal to your adventurous side. We also offer something new to the world of pets the gorgeous and regal chicken breeds we have. These chickens are survivors having endured harsh environments while maintaining a spirited demeanor, thus speaking to the hearts of so many.

We have now bought 2 gorgeous girls from Autumn. Each time, she’s been so helpful and extremely easy to work with. She was always great about sending updates, and answered all my questions. I also really appreciate how thoroughly she health tests her dogs and shares all the results with puppy owners. Autumn knows each of her dogs’ strengths and weaknesses, and selects her breedings carefully, to produce the best possible dogs.
— Hilary Neil Nelson

We got a beautiful sweet little pup from Autumn. We communicate with her often regarding questions we have. She is always happy to help and offer her way of doing things along with what others may be doing. She was very transparent with purchasing very accommodating for pick up and amazing to learn from. She continues to be a great resource for us as we train our first LGD.
