These dogs are behind all Mini Aussies:

Thank you, the misconception that they are simply bred down from Aussies drives me crazy.

Also if you're mom does end up getting a mini American watch what lines she gets. I know of tons of mini Americans who're much larger than Cara and really on the large end for Aussies ( you wouldn't believe the number of people who have 40-60 pound "minis")
