Hmmm maybe it was miniature austrailian shepherd that she said then. For some reason I was thinking toy. I could have been wrong.

Ya, I've heard of them before. Not very ethical to be honest, is she breeds them she is a BYB.

Toy Aussies are crossed with Poms and Chihuahuas. Easily noticeable in their domed heads. Though of course, a breeder will deny that up and down.

they are not mini's, they are even smaller as in TOY,,and yes I've heard they use chi's, poms to get that size ..

I do have a friend with a toy, and have to say she is the only one I've ever seen that resembles an aussie , tho I wouldn't want one..

I've met a couple of mini and toy "Aussies"...the toys look like docked Pom mixes and do not resemble ANYTHING an Aussie is supposed to be. I've met ONE Mini Aussie that even remotely looks and acts like an Aussie, but like with all downsizing, temperment and brains suffer.

I actually met the first mini-aussie I liked at the agility trial this past weekend. He looked so much like a normal aussie, that I couldn't pick him out while going through the pictures from the site! The others I've me (only a few) were very bizarre looking.

So they aren't a true breed then right? Are people trying to make them true?
