Hello! I show Miniature Australian Shepherds in conformation. I only have Miniature Australian Shepherds right now. AKC finally accepted the mini Aussie but only if they were called Mini American (same breed, different name); I haven't decided if I'll make the switch to AKC or not. Mine are currently registered MASCA, ASDR and NAMASCUSA.
They have amazing temperaments and are part of our family. My male is the biggest snuggle bug and my female is a goofball. I love them, I'll never own another breed.
My male just recently won his International Puppy Championship title. Pretty proud of him. After all health testing is complete and clear- OFA, CERF, MDR1, PRCD (hips, eyes, ivermectin allergy, PRA) we will be expecting our very first litter either late summer/early fall. There are all colors expected- blue Merle, red Merle, black Tri, red Tri.

These are very nice looking dogs.... Sure wish I knew how to show dogs....

I agree that this testing is so important with breeding stock. There are way too many Aussie breeders that don't do any of this - and don't even know what the tests are.

The first Aussie breeders I ever met (back in the late '80s) were breeding blue merle dogs with blue eyes and white heads, to each other (which results in deaf puppies, among other things, which they KNEW could happen). NOT a responsible breeding program! Glad to see the testing has advanced to such a degree and that ethical people do take advantage of it.

Good for you, AshleyL!

Awe! Thank you for all the kind comments! It's so nice to meet friendly people that love Arabians and Dogs. They pretty much go hand in hand. ;)

Glad you joined us here!!


I run into so many horse people or former horse people when I show dogs.  It really does go hand in hand.


I absolutely love showing dogs. I love grooming my dog for the breed ring and I adore Obedience and agility too.


I have seen some nice Mini Aussies come out of Timeless Kennels which is about an hour north of me.  As I said before

every time I see one I am sorely tempted.  Though my Collie breeder would kill me as I am soon due for another Collie from her.
