Here at Legends Miniature Australian Shepherds, we raise and breed quality Toy and Miniature Australian Shepherds. We are a small hobby breeder striving to do our best to provide quality, healthy pets to loving families. We began our adventure into the Miniature Australian Shepherds in 2004. We took our prior experience from showing and breeding Labradors and put that knowledge into our Miniature Australian Shepherds breeding program. Our ultimate goal is to produce sound, healthy puppies with intelligence and personality…along with all the qualities that meet the expectations of a Miniature Australian Shepherd.
Miniature and Toy Australian Shepherds are similar to the standard size Australian Shepherds, but just in smaller packages. The Minis height ranges from 14″-18″ and can weigh between 20 and 40lbs. The Toys are under 14″. The Mini Aussies are entirely devoted to their family and make excellent watch dogs and companions. They are gentle with children and good with other pets. Because of their strong herding/working instincts, they do good with families who are willing to spend time providing them with some obedience training. Like all dogs, they do require a moderate amount of exercise. The minis are relatively quiet, except when they feel their family should be warned of something out of the ordinary, so barking is not usually an issue. My motto is: if you won’t let your child get away with bad behavior, you should expect the same from your dog. I believe a bad behaved dog is more the fault of the owner, not the dog. The Miniature Australian Shepherds make excellent pets and family companions.
Our dogs are either National Stock Dog or American Stock Dog Registered (or both). Our puppies are sold as pets only on a spay/neuter contract. We do not sell our puppies to breeders, unless otherwise agreed upon. Our puppies are raised in our home till about the fifth week, then they are moved to an outside, climate controlled area. Our puppies are loved and well socialized from the time of birth to the day they leave. They are around other dogs, our horses and on occasion, our cats (they tend to stay clear of puppies).
Come in and take a look around our website. Some of the pictures you are able to click on them to make the larger, some go to a new page for a “slide show”. Take a look at our “Testimonals” page and see what folks are saying about Legends Miniature Australian Shepherds or check out our “Photo Album” and see some of our past puppies as well as pictures of our family and friends.
Give us a call if you would like more information on our dogs or any upcoming litters, or if you would like updated pictures of any current puppies.
