Actually, the Miniature Australian Shepherd is a recognized breed (or could be considered a variety of the Australian Shepherd since they are technically just a smaller Aussie, but Aussie people don't like when you say that). In the past they were just registered and shown as Aussies because there was no height minimum. Now, they are recognized under a separate name by several registries including the ARBA and NSDR and were recently accepted into the AKC's Miscellaneous class. NSDR is where the Australian Shepherd itself was recognized in the beginning as well, by the way.

I think I counted almost 40 females on the link provided.
It rubs me the wrong way too. It's still a mutt.

what is the breeder actually doing wrong? they are breeding pets that evidently people want. is there any evidence of breeding genetically sick dogs or dogs with poor temperaments or misleading advertising about the capabilities of the dog?? i think the no-allergy claim might be misleading, i don't really know.

a good breeder is a good breeder and a bad breeder is a bad breeder - has zip to do with breed (or non-breed).

these dogs will most likely soon me recognized by the AKC as a breed, what is everyone going to get on their high horses about then?

do you put sport mixes in the same boat as designer mutts - thats right some people do. what about KNPV dogs? some dam fine mutts right there to me.

I would never own one, but the breeder linked in this thread seems to be invested and doing it right. Lots of health testing, member of a parent club, etc.

No, but they've been exploited.
I know an Aussie Labradoodle, she is only about 25# and is of good temperament and health. The breeder was charging $3000 for pups before the economy tanked. I think now they are about half that. I'd still never purchase one, but can see their place in being of demand.

I was told by my family member who contacted them, that the link I provided charges $2800, and puppies are spayed and neutered before being placed. Food for thought.

My daughter has one, She went to a rescue to addopt a dog and got a puppy that they told her was a terrier mix that would weigh about 30 pounds. He is now a 70 pound, most likley , told by vets A labradoodle. She loves him anyways. Very freindly but a real goofy dog. It is ok someone needed to save him too.

To me it just seems more of a 'glamor' thing to own a designer breed, or at least when someone specifically seeks out to buy one. With it's fancy name, fancy names for it's coat colors, and fancy price tag. It would be nice to see more going into the purpose of the breeding rather than the superficial things.

Next they will be trying to cross a koala bear with a grizzly bear. Lol

This has nothing to do with the topic, but when I was in America I was told that i speak really fast, what is everyone's observations on the Australian accent?

Nancy already told you. We think the Australian accent is sexy. Well, I do anyway. What part of America were you in? Lot of different accents here. I have relatives in the south that talk REAL slow. I'm from the Northeast and they think I talk too fast.

Sorry for going off topic. Raintheshepherd started it. LOL!
