The Miniature Australian Shepherd began due to Australian Shepherds being selectively bred for smaller size. The Mini Aussie showcases the hard work ethic and intelligence of its larger forefathers with the heightened agility of a smaller breed, making it the ideal choice for a sporting companion, herding dog or service dog. This compact pup also features many fetching physical similarities to the larger original, including blue or red merle coats, red or black tri-colors and white or tan markings. Their soft straight or wavy fur is feathered around the legs and head, giving a fuzzy texture to an otherwise sleek, small physique. Take a look at Color Country Aussies’ prized Miniature Australian Shepherd puppies for sale to see for yourself.
Miniature Australian Shepherds are both exciting, energetic play-mates and loyal, affectionate companions. Their high agility, intelligence and obedience gives them a natural predisposition towards vigorous sports, tricks and challenges. Their sporting nature and loyal personalities makes them natural people-pleasers, though their attentive exuberance can turn to boredom and destructive behaviors when left alone without their person for too long. Early socialization makes Mini Aussies easily friendly towards other people and dogs, though some puppies must be instructed to direct instinctive herding behaviors away from humans.
Mini Aussies exhibit distinct energetic personalities and intelligence that craves daily exercise and stimulation. A short walk or game of fetch is enough to give the breed the attention, mobility and challenge they need to stay fit and happy. Miniature Australian Shepherds are natural working dogs that enjoy a job and encouragement, even if it’s a simple as providing love and affection in your lap. These adoring pups are adaptable to cold climates and can live happily in small yards or apartments with sufficient exercise and play time.
The Miniature Australian Shepherd’s soft, feathered coat does not require extensive grooming or attention. Periodically brushing your pup with a firm bristle brush will keep his fur smooth and shining. Mini Aussies enjoy activity in and outdoors, so bathing your companion when necessary will assure he doesn’t bring the world in with him. Despite their fuzzy coats, this breed sheds very little fur or dander when properly groomed and bathed.
The breeding program to develop the Miniature Australian Shepherd began in 1968 with the smallest of the regular Australian Shepherds. The wavy coats, loyal personalities and distinctive colors were soon seen on smaller bodies, and the Miniature Australian Shepherd was born. Numerous canine breeding intuitions now accept this pint-sized pup and the AKC recognizes them as the Miniature American Shepherd.
