The size range for aussies can be found simply by looking at the breed standard
"Preferred height at the withers for males is 20 to 23 inches; that for females is 18 to 21 inches, however, quality is not to be sacrificed in favor of size."

There are no size varieties of Aussies Aussies can be any size according to the standard as long as they still meet the standard and are able to do the job they were originally bred to do, herding sheep and cattle.

There is no "Standard" or "Giant" or "Toy" or "Miniature" or "Teacup" Aussies there are just plan and simple "Aussies" Whether it's 12 inches tall or 35 inches tall it's still just an "Aussie" no size classes to be named.
