Australian Shepherds and Miniature American Shepherds are wonderful dogs full of energy and devotion... they love their family and are happiest spending time with them.  It can be anything from competing in agility or canoeing down the river or just a daily game of fetch in the park. They live for your companionship and need you to make room for them in your daily life.  In return your dog will be one of your best friends and return your love.
We specialize in a small breeding program that has emphasis on producing puppies that can go to families who want to do everything from herding, jumping thru agility courses, jetting thru flyball, summersaulting for frisbee, hiking thru the trails,  traveling buddy and most of all one of your  best and devoted companions.  Herding and agility is the main focus for our breeding program but our puppies also excell at being your best buddy! 
Our minis are registered in UKC and in AKC as Miniature American Shepherds
