The International Miniature Australian Shepherd Club was formed for the protection of our beloved Miniature Australian Shepherds. Miniature Australian Shepherds are not a new breed, they are a size variety of the Australian Shepherd. They are the same dog, same blood and DNA as the Australian Shepherd only smaller in size. Several farmers, ranchers, breeders kept the size down on these dogs for function. The larger 60 to 90 pound Aussies just could not get into places they were needed to be whether crossing through fences, under gates, through barns as well as many were used a s pen dogs. They had to be strong enough to get the job done but small enough to function and get to the places they needed to be. So the Miniature Australian Shepherd is not new, you can go back to the beginning and see many smaller dogs which still run today through many pedigrees and bloodlines.
