Miniature American & Australian Shepherd Breeder - Pillager, Minnesota

Mini Males

Our Mini American shepherd sires are chosen for our program because they have solid, fun loving temperaments.

They pass all health clearances suggested by the AKC Miniature American Shepherd parent club and then some! Check their health testing links to see all that has been done on each dog. We upload everything to OFA as we choose to be transparent with our breeding program as much as possible. We want it to be easy for anyone inquiring on health of our mini Americans! Until they are adults at 2 years old not all results will be on OFA. If you have any questions, please do ask.

We would love to see our Miniature American shepherds go on to finish titles in various events that will showcase their intelligence and their beauty. It is important to us to provide you with a well-balanced dog that will make not only a great family pet, but a great competitor in the ring, if you love to show your dogs. We show our mini American shepherds to prove they are quality dogs who conform to the standard for structure and movement as well as intelligence. We show our dogs in conformation for their championships, obedience, rally, nosework, fastcat, trick dog, and do canine good citizen testing. You will find many letters before and after our dogs official registered name. Those are the titles they have earned, some harder then others to attain. Many dogs we have bred are doing all the things we do as well as barn hunt, agility and herding. The Australian shepherds was developed to be an all around versatile breed, the mini aussie  should be the same in a smaller package.

Our mini American shepherds command attention wherever we go in public. People remark on how beautiful they are and see them perform and are astonished how smart they are. We want these traits passed on to the mini American puppies for their new homes as well.

Dude is an up and coming black tri miniature American shepherd stud. He is a Candy son. He has started some basic training as well as earned a 5 point major towards his AKC Championship. He is 19' tall and so no longer eligible to compete towards his AKC Championship. He is now training with my step daughter for performance titles. Watch for him around Minnesota!
