Per the AKC, the Miniature American Shepherd shares many physical traits with its forebear the Australian Shepherd—only on a smaller scale. Females stand between 13 and 17 inches at the shoulder; males range from 14 to 18 inches. Despite their size, Minis are every inch a true herding dog: energetic, versatile, rugged, and extremely bright. The eye-catching coat comes in black, blue merle, red, and red merle. (The merle will exhibit in any amount marbling, flecks, or blotches.) Minis move with the smooth and agile step of a dog built for hard work on punishing terrain. More about general information at the AKC website.
Our Aussies are part of our family. They live in our home, they ride with us while we are in the arena, and go with us to barrel races/competitions. Our aussies live with our horses as much as we do.
All of our dogs are vetted, up-to-date on vaccinations, and heartworm/flea treated as appropriate for age.
Cooter is our Sire. He is a blue eyed, black tricolor TOY. He measures in at 14″. He is a fun loving guy. He likes to play with all of the dogs and including our doberman.
Dixie Anne is one of our Dams. She is a blue eyed blue merle mini. She measures in at 16″. Dixie is a little on the shy side at times, but loves to play.
Trixie Lou is our talking Dam! She loves talkin’ with her daddy. She is also a blue merle, measuring in at 16″. She too, is extremely obedient.
