Developed in the American West in the late 1960’s, the highly active Miniature American Shepherd is a small herding dog of extensive versatility. Formerly known as the Miniature Australian Shepherd, they are are up to 18 inches tall and up to 35 pounds as adults. They come in a variety of colors and are to be presented in a natural fashion, not to be sculpted by scissoring. Whether working stock, navigating an agility course, visiting a nursing home or riding the family couch, this intensely curious and intelligent dog does it with all due diligence and a wicked sense of humor.
