There aren't alot of details on the site per say...
Question: Are miniature australian shepherds an actual breed? If not then don't bother....its just another mutt breeder that doesn't deserve the support..

If it is however purebred, I am quite happy with the fact that the dogs are health tested, and I really like the spay/neuter contracts and health guarantee.
I would like to see some confirmation titles if she has any...I think those are important..also maybe some references and an outline of what is under the contract...whether she takes back dogs that buyers can't keep for whatever reason...history of the parents and parent's parents....just more background info.

Other than that...well I dunno how to grade her...6 out of 10?
lol

They actually look good. It's awesome that they are involved in agility, obediance, etc, and that they are tested. I didn't see the contract/guarentee like posted before, but maybe i just missed it. My sister is really into the "mini" aussies. They're cute!

The fact that she obtains obedience titles for her dogs, has their hips checked, offers a health guarantee, and has a S/N contract is good.

HOWEVER, this is not an AKC registered breed. Therefore, before buying from this person, I would ask her what she's breeding towards. If she's trying to breed towards a specific standard that the Miniature Aussie Club is trying to get the AKC to accept, that would be acceptable to me. If her reason is "Because everyone LOVES Miniature Austrailian Shepherds!", then I'd avoid her.

They have a parent club and must be registered with a kennel club somewhere due to the CH's in the pedigree's. At least, this is what I would assume. I don't know about "mini" anythings, other than they are usually a scaled down, non-AKC recognized dog.
They are cute pups, but I don't really like the smaller versions of a bigger breed. JMO though.

I didn't think the AKC listed any "Miniature Australian Shepherds"...

I think all the champions were probably normal (non-mini) AKC Australian Shepherds.

Look at this pedigree, for example . . .

http://members.shaw.ca/s.keats/pedigree-Clay.htm

Most of the females in the fourth generation are listed as being 17" high . . . The AKC standard lists the height of the female Aussie as being between 18" and 21". So 17" isn't extremely short, just one inch under standard. The third generation has a dog that's 15" tall. No heights listed for any other dog, so who knows about them.

But given that the fourth generation back was only an inch under standard, my guess would be that these people just bred runty dogs together for a few generations and that the champions in the pedigrees were champion Australian Shepherds, not champion Miniature Australian Shepherds.

I agree, LabBreeder, I don't like dog breeds that are "just like the original, only TINY!" And it seems to be more and more "fashionable" to do this to breeds for a quick buck . . .
