About Us

Experienced Breeders

I have been breeding and raising Australian shepherds in Minnesota for 26 years. For us it is about the health of our animals so we check for every known disease to the breed. The Miniature American Shepherd was originally the Mini Australian Shepherd. In 2014 they were accepted into AKC as the Miniature American Shepherd. We started in Miniature American Shepherds in 2019 and are enjoying the smaller size of their bigger counterparts, the Aussie, and we hope you do too!

Happy, Healthy Bloodline

Our dogs longevity means a lot to us. We want your mini aussie puppy to be around in your family for as long as possible. With health testing, proper diet and excersize your miniature american shepherds can live to be 15 years old.

A Furever Friend

We ensure our Miniature American Shepherd puppies and adults are socialized from birth. We use a few different ideas on raising pups for what I believe is the most effective way to have a well-rounded Miniature American Shepherd  that is the perfect family companion.
