Miniature Australian Shepherds are just a small package of the standard Aussie. Breed standards are the same except for height and weight.  Loveable, happy, and the Australian Shepherds are willing to please.  The Australian Shepherd Puppies for Sale are easily trained and do well at agility and obedience. 

If you love the Australian Shepherd and don't have room for him to roam, think about a Miniature.  You'll love them.  Remember though that the Mini Australian Shepherd requires lots of exercise just like the standard.  Be willing to give of your time to run and play with your new found friend.

I have been studying the Miniature Australian Shepherd for several years and it has taken several years to find the perfect one's to pass on their gene's, as with any breed of animal I believe if you do not do the breed justice, why do it....We are Mini Australian Shepherd Breeders, we want everything the standard aussie has just downsized, their beautiful looks, their loving dispositions, their extreme intelligence and above all breed with excellent health.
