I've had australian terriers for more than 20 years, have been involved in shows and with breeders, and have never heard them referred to as mini aussie pups. I think you may be referring to australian shepherds which are being bred down to a mini australian shepherd size. Australian Shepherds are also referred to as aussies. However, Australian Shepherds are not from Australia but from the western U.S.
