By my heritage, we are a herder and guardian. Sometimes our instinct to herd can
be mistaken as "meanness" when we are trying to herd other animals and/or
children. Nipping at the ankles is not an uncommon trait in young Aussies with
herding instinct, but is easily discouraged with a gentle shake and an "ah-ah"
sound.  Aussies, properly trained and socialized make wonderful companions; we
are highly intelligent, loyal, affectionate and protective of our property and our
human family. Our high-spirits and eagerness to please make us an easy to train
dog who will generally show great enthusiasm for learning new things and being
challenged on a daily basis. Aussies excel in the show ring, trial arena, obedience
ring, and they can be wonderfully athletic agility and fly ball dogs. Our high energy
makes us a serious candidate for lots of daily exercise and play. Aussies are
generally good with children and other pets, although they usually try to keep the
"herd" together! With strangers, Aussies can be aloof and show reserve but this
should not be taken as shyness, they are generally just keeping an eye on things and
making sure that the new person is acceptable before making them a friend. As a
rule if you, as their owner, tell them the person is acceptable they will accept your
word for it. Once an Aussie makes a friend, they are a friend for life.

Miniature and Toy Australian Shepherds have all the same attributes as the
Standard Australian Shepherds including excelling in:  herding, agility,
conformation, obedience, and tracking and as an active intelligent companion.  

They then also have the advantages of small breed dogs. They are the perfect size
to jump up in your lap and be a lap dog.  They can jump in your truck and easily
travel and stay with you on the road.  
Mini Australian Shepherds weigh between 15 to 30 lbs at maturity they range from
13'' to 17''.   Toy Australian Shepherds are 13'' and under.  They have blue Merle,
red Merle, black or red TRI or bi coat colors with some variations.   Most toy
Australian Shepherds and Miniature Australian Shepherds have copper and white
trim. And their eyes may be blue, brown, hazel, and green, one of each, flecked or

The disposition of these small breed dogs is calm and confident, but suspicious of
strangers.   The Toy Australian Shepherds and Mini Australian Shepherd are
entirely devoted to their owner and will go to great lengths to please, they are easy
to train.
