Welcome

Welcome to Legends Miniature Australian Shepherds.  We are set in a small horse community called “Norco”, located in sunny Southern California in the Inland Empire.  We are approx. 35 minutes east of Disneyland.

Here at Legends Miniature Australian Shepherds. We own and sometimes breed Miniature Australian Shepherds.   On occasion, we do get Toy Australian Shepherd in our litters, but most often our puppies are in the Mini range.  We strive to do our best to provide quality, healthy pets to loving families.  We have learned a lot about the breed since we owned our first Mini and we always strive to learn more and be the best we can be.  Our ultimate goal is to produce sound, healthy puppies with intelligence and personality, along with all the qualities that meet the expectations of a Miniature Australian Shepherd.

Miniature Australian Shepherds are similar to the standard size Australian Shepherds, but just in smaller packages. The Miniatures height ranges from 14″-18″ and can weigh between 20 and 40lbs. The Toys are under 14″.  Miniature and Toy Australian Shepherds are entirely devoted to their family and make excellent companions. They are gentle with children and good with other pets. Because of their strong herding/working instincts, they do good with families who are willing to spend time providing them with some obedience training.  Like all dogs, they do require a moderate amount of exercise.  The Miniature Australian Shepherds are relatively quiet, except when they feel their family should be warned of something out of the ordinary, so barking is not usually an issue.

My motto is: if you won’t let your child get away with bad behavior, you should expect the same from your dog.   I believe a bad behaved dog is more the fault of the owner, not the dog.  The Miniature Australian Shepherds make excellent pets and perfect family companions.

Our dogs are American Stock Dog Registered.  Our puppies are sold as pets only on a spay/neuter contract.  We do not sell our puppies with breeding rights.  Our puppies are raised in our home till about the third/fourth week, then they are moved to an outside, climate-controlled area.  Our puppies are loved and well socialized from the time of birth to the day they leave.  Our puppies go home at eight weeks of age, with up to date vaccinations, worming and tails and dewclaws removed, all done at age appropriate times.  I also send home with each puppy a “puppy package” that includes: food, toys, treats (and lots of other goodies), parents health clearances  and several articles on puppy related subjects, many of which you can now find on the internet.

Give us a call or text if you would like more information.

Referrals can be given upon request.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a look at Legends Miniature and Toy Australian Shepherds
