Miniature American Shepherd (Mini Aussie) Breed Information

The Miniature American Shepherd is a small herding dog that resembles a smaller version of the Australian Shepherd. It is a true herder, known for being bright, self-motivated, and energetic. Originally known as the Miniature Australian Shepherd, the breed's name was changed to Miniature American Shepherd in the 1990s; the breed was formed by a split of the Australian Shepherd breed by the AKC, and the incorporation of dogs previously known as Miniature Australian Shepherds. These pups are loyal, devoted, and protective of their families, but can be reserved around strangers. They also have an affinity for horses. Given their double coats, they require regular grooming.
