Triple R Mini Aussies is a breeder of miniature American shepherds. The miniature American shepherd was formerly called the miniature Australian shepherd. Triple R Mini Aussies is located in Massachusetts and only sells neutered dogs.
The miniature American shepherd was developed by breeding smaller Australian shepherd-type dogs beginning in the 1960s. The American Kennel Club is planning to recognize these dogs under the breed name miniature American shepherd as of July 2015. The dogs are 13 to 18 inches tall at the withers but otherwise resemble Australian shepherds in appearance and behavior. They are an athletic, intelligent, herding and working breed.
