Our Mini Americans!

   AKC Miniature American Shepherds

We have some new additions here at Faithwalk!  As I age, I realize it may be nice having smaller dogs who should have all the things I love about Aussies.   It was a no brainer to choose AKC Miniature American Shepherds, the smaller cousins to Aussies.  Like I did with Aussies, I sought out dogs with good temperaments, health and structure, type and movement.

For those who are not familiar with this breed, they are a close cousin to Aussies and many of their pedigrees include Aussies. They are a somewhat new breed to full AKC recognition, being accepted in the summer of 2015 and of course are in the herding group.   They are a bit smaller but share many of the physical and behavioral qualities with their bigger Australian Shepherd cousins, and it's why I was interested in them.   I love an active, thinking, doing kind of dog and didn't want too small a dog, so this breed is a good choice for me.   I also didn't want a breed that was not AKC recognized since that's the registry I like to use for so many reasons.

  I am just getting started, learning the lines and breeders. I really want to thank the breeders who helped me get started, especially Ashley Lindauer and Jenny Tidwell for their help and selling me dogs!   Stay tuned as I add a section for each of our dogs.  Until then I will just add some cute photos of our Mini Americans enjoying life.


We will work on getting individual pages up as we can.
