Mini American Shepherd vs. Mini Aussie Shepherd
What’s the difference?
For decades the breed status of the Miniature Australian Shepherd has been a highly debated topic. The very first mini Aussie shepherd was registered with the National Stock Dog Registry (NSDR). Since then other registries have formed and dictated the classification of the toy Australian shepherd.
The American Kennel Club (AKC), United States Australian Shepherd Association (USASA) and the North American Miniature Shepherd Club of the USA (NAMASCUSA) have agreed to split the Australian Shepherd into two separate breeds. Under the AKC the smaller version of an Australian Shepherd is now classified as the Miniature American Shepherd.
As of June 27th 2012 the AKC approved this breed for entry into the miscellaneous class. Entry into the miscellaneous group allows the Miniature American Shepherd to compete in AKC conformation events.
Are you confused yet? None of this changes who we are. It’s all in the name. Here at Rocky Top Kennels they will always be the same little Aussies and same little wiggle butts that we have known and raised, a perfect furry family companion!
