AKC is FINALLY allowing a new breed to come in in 2012 that will TOTALLY replace the breed aka once known to some as the miniture or toy Australian Shepherd.    The new name of the breed will be known as the American Shepherd and will have no link to or likeness there of relating to the true Australian Shepherd.   This has been going on way to long and now it seems AKC has been grand enough to step up and solve it.   Those of us that raise the Australian Shepherd no for a fact that the Miniutre nor the Toy aussie have no real true characteristics of the Australian Shepherd.   They have been bred to other breeds and bred down in size so much as to take on many other temperments and worse yet terrible health issues that we as Australian Shepherd Breeders have worked hard to keep out of our lines.

So as you have it.   There are no such thing as Mini or Toy Aussies.   Watch yourself on other Registries that will still involve them as such.   These Registries are not true and have been developed by a few people getting together and deciding they want one,...then they market them.   No real worth in them.    Stick to the AKC and/or ASCA Registry when purchasing your next Australian Shepherd.     Good Luck and ask any questions if you'd like

The new American Shepherd will be noticed as the Misc. Group for 5 years while they work out the kinks...

 GOOD! I cannot understand a "double registered" horse or the toy- miniature thing with so many breeds of dogs. Sure there are some breeds that are truely different size but  please let's be reasonable.  I know a person marketing pom/papillion cross dogs as a pom with a non shedding coat.An aussie is an aussie. The others are just mixed breeed dogs. True many breeds started as a mix Doberman Pincher etc. But why not call it a mix?
