The Miniature American Shepherd is also known as the Miniature Australian Shepherd and affectionately referred to as the Miniature Aussie. Many breeders consider them to be "Americas Dogs" because the Miniature size originated within the United States. The minis are mirror images of the standard Australian Shepherd, but in a smaller stature. Because of their smaller size, they are the perfect breed for every lifestyle. They are clever, light hearted, debonair, endearing, intuitive, watchful, protective, athletic, helpful and devoutly loyal to their extended family. This breed is extremely versatile and adapts well mentally as well as physically (at work, home and during play). They enjoy activities such as obedience, rally obedience, conformation, agility, herding, fly ball, Frisbee, search & rescue, and therapy work. We are proud to say, this very special breed has the willingness and ability "to do it all". The more they work, the happier they are. They willingly accept varied lifestyles as long as they can be close to their family. Many people consider them to be "awesome Velcro dogs" because they prefer to keep their family in sight. They love the excitement of participating in active lifestyles, however are content to relax and lounge around with their two legged pack!
"DESIGNER AUSSIES" goal is to produce Champion Companion pets, obedience, agility, and show quality dogs. We strive to produce puppies in a beautiful compact show quality package "Designed with Kustom Chrome" or known as strategically placed white markings. Raising beautifully marked puppies with eye appeal is our goal as well as an added bonus. Our selective breeding program is a reflection of our commitment to improve breed quality, type, consistency as well as longevity.
Great puppies begin with solid foundations (pedigree, genetics, preventative health care, nutritious dog food, proper socialization and training)! We strive to improve the breed by focusing on intelligence, excellent temperaments, healthy genetics, and structurally sound conformation. These qualities prove to be a major factor in determining their athletic ability, influencing their canine instinctive behavior and willingness to learn throughout their life. Our adults and puppies are raised within our home environment and are well socialized with children, adults, and other dogs. It is important to us, to spend quality time with each individual puppy as we build their self esteem, start their "good puppy manners", introduce "crate training", and reinforce their "house training process".
All puppies are started on our preventative health care program before they leave our home.
