Welcome

  Welcome to Southern California’s premium breeder of the original Miniature Australian Shepherd, Legends Miniature Australian Shepherds.  We are set in a small horse community called “Norco”,  located in sunny Southern California, where the first Mini Aussies started in the early 1960’s.  We are approx. 35 minutes east of Disneyland off the 15 fwy and near the 91, 60 and 10 fwy’s.

Here at Legends Miniature Australian Shepherds, we raise and breed quality the original Miniature Australian Shepherds (and sometimes we get some Toys).   We do not breed Miniature American Shepherds, that is a different registry that came many years after the original Miniature Australian Shepherd. We are a small hobby breeder striving to do our best to provide quality, healthy puppies to loving families.  We began our adventure into the original Miniature Australian Shepherds in 2004.  We took our prior experience from showing and breeding Labradors and put that knowledge into our Miniature Australian Shepherds breeding program and I continue to learn every day to be the best breeder I can be.  Our ultimate goal is to produce breed standard, sound, healthy puppies with intelligence and personality, along with all the qualities that meet the expectations of a Miniature Australian Shepherd.

Miniature and Toy Australian Shepherds are similar to the standard size Australian Shepherds, but just in smaller packages. The Minis height ranges from 14″-18″ and can weigh between 20 and 40lbs. The Toys are under 14″. The Miniature Australian Shepherds also known as Mini Aussies, are entirely devoted to their family and make excellent watch dogs and 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 Minis 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.  As for training, 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 family companions and are very intelligent and easily trained.

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 to breeders, unless otherwise agreed upon.  Our puppies are raised in our home till about the 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 (please do not ask for us to leave tails in tack, as we will not).  I also send home with each puppy a “puppy package” that includes: food, toys, treats, parents health clearances  and several articles on puppy related subjects (many of which you can now find on the internet). 

Come in and take a look around our website. Some of the pictures you are able to click on them to make the larger, some go to a new page for a “slide show”.   Take a look at our “Testimonials” page and see what folks are saying about Legends Miniature Australian Shepherds or check out our “Photo Album” and see some of our past puppies as well as pictures of our family and friends.  Another outlet is our social media pages.  We are on both Instagram @Legendsminiaussies and Facebook @ Legends Miniature Australian Shepherds, but the website is the best place for information.
