What you should know about
"Miniature/Toy Australian Shepherds"

The following registries do not recognize any size variety of Australian Shepherds:
Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA)
United States Australian Shepherd Association (USASA) and its parent club, the AKC
United Kennel Club (UKC)

"Mini Aussies," "Toy Aussies," and Miniature American Shepherds are distinct and separate breeds from the Australian Shepherd.

If you want an Aussie, get an Aussie. If you want a smaller dog, Australian Shepherd bitches measuring 18" and weighing 30 pounds can be found and are within the preferred size range of the ASCA breed standard.

If you still want a "Mini Aussie," please see the AKC, UKC and MASCUSA websites for that breed.
