Miniature American Shepherds (also known as Miniature Australian Shepherds, or Mini Aussies) have the trainability, intelligence and energy of the larger Aussie cousins, and excel at outdoors activities and agility competitions.

Fun Fact

Like their big brothers the Australian Shepherds, Miniature American Shepherds sport a range of coat colors and eye colors - sometimes one dog may even have multicolored eyes! They sometimes even have naturally short (bobbed) tails!
