The Australian Shepherd is extremely intelligent, easily trained, loyal, and a natural protector of the home and family. The Aussie is terrific with children and may herd them around. They are eager to please their master and will be a constant companion. The mini and toy Aussies are just smaller versions of the full-size standard Aussie. They have the same intelligence and personality, just in a more portable size. The minis are 14" to 17" at the shoulders and between 20 and 35 pounds. The toys are under 14" and around 10 to 20 pounds. This smaller size makes them the perfect house pet and very easy to travel with. You can find a beautiful array of colors: Red, Black, Blue Merle or Red Merle. They are low maintenance: with a wash and wear coat, occasional brushing and nail trim, they are good to go.
The Aussie is fully capable of being very well behaved in the house, but they do need daily exercise and jobs to do. A walk/run or fetch will do. They also need to be well socialized as a puppy as not to be too protective of their home and family.
Feel free to call or email with any questions about puppy availability or just about the Aussies in general. The only things I like to talk about more than my dogs are my kids!
