Regardless of "breeding true" or not, they need to come up with a different name. A Pom'Aussie is not an Aussie and should not be named as such. Same with the Mini's...though there is a movement to rename them the "North American Miniature Shepherd".

The North American Mini Shepherd Club of America even said that they won't accept "Mini Aussies".

I know someone with a very gorgeous 'mini aussie' though she prefers North American Miniature Shepherd for the name. The dog looks exactly like an Aussie only 14". That's the only mini aussie I've ever seen that looked like an Aussie to me. the toys always look like they're part pom or sheltie...
