|Mini Australian shepherds aka: miniature australian shepherds are a working breed and my puppies are sold as working dogs.
The Australian shepherd, commonly known as an Aussie, is a breed of dog that was developed on ranches in the western United
States. Despite its name, the breed was not developed in Australia, but rather in the United States where they were seen in the
West as early as the 1800s. The breed rose gradually in popularity with the boom of western riding after World War I. They
became known to the general public through rodeos, horse shows, and Disney movies made for television. For many years,
Aussies have been valued by stock men for their versatility and train ability. While they continue to work as stock dogs and
compete in herding trials, the breed has earned recognition in other roles due to their easily being trained and eagerness to
please, and are highly regarded for their skills in obedience. Like all working breeds, the Aussie has considerable energy and
drive, and usually needs a job to do. It often excels at dog sports such as dog agility, fly ball, and frisbee. They are also highly
successful search and rescue dogs, disaster dogs, detection dogs, guide, service, and therapy dogs.
AKC has accepted the recognition of a new breed recently. Some breeders
decided to take their dogs into AKC as an entirely new breed: Miniature American Shepherd. They have forfeited their heritage
and have not decided where they have come from yet. They have no history according to their website, and AKC's website.
We chose to stay with our past heritage as an Australian Shepherd of the miniature variety. The Miniature Australian Shepherd
is supported by many breeders and can still be registered with MASCA, IMASC, NSDR, and ASDR. We register our dogs with
MASCA and/or IMASC. Show venues for miniature australian shepherds include ICKC, IABCA, ARBA, and ASDR.
Beginning November 16, 2013 I will be
joining a very large number of breeders
across the U.S. in no longer being able to
ship puppies. Due to a change that was
made in federal regulations (APHIS PET
LAW), that was supposedly intended to
protect buyers from poor breeders, it is in
fact going to cause many quality breeders to
stop breeding, raise prices or severely limit
who they can sell to. As a buyer, your rights
to choose your breeder will be severely
restricted unless you are willing to drive or
fly to pick up your puppy. All sales must take
place face to face with buyer or buyer's
representative to meet the new regulations.
It is truly a sad day when the government
takes even more control thinking to help
when in fact it causes more problems. Your
options will be to come here, fly in and for
me to meet you at the airport, or if I am able
to drive to meet you.
I am sorry for the inconvenience this will be
causing but it is the only way I am able to
continue breeding and raising these
