Mini Australian Shepherd Breed Overview

Want to bring home an adorable Mini Australian Shepherd puppy for sale? You’ve come to the right place. At Keystone Puppies, our mission is to help Mini Australian Shepherd puppies find their forever homes. In addition to Mini Aussies, we work with a range of other breeds — including Mini Aussiedoodles, Blue Heeler Australian Cattle Dogs, Shetland Sheepdogs, and more! All our puppies are bred with the highest standards of ethical integrity — free of common genetic defects that impact less responsible breeders — and are raised in happy homes where they’re treated like part of the family before becoming part of yours!

The Mini Australian Shepherd is an intelligent, loyal and affectionate dog that has been around since the late 1960s. It was originally bred in California as a smaller version of the larger Australian Shepherds that were popular out West at that time. Despite their name, Mini Aussies are not actually from Australia but have ancestors hailing from different parts of Europe such as Spain and France.

These pups can be seen performing a variety of activities like agility, tracking and herding. So if you are looking for a devoted family companion with a spunky personality, the Mini Australian Shepherd might just be the pet for you!

Mini Aussie Puppies Temperament

The Miniature Australian Shepherd is an intelligent, affectionate dog that loves to please its owners. This breed has a reputation for being loyal, obedient, and protective—making it an ideal companion for all kinds of families.

Not only are they low-maintenance and easy to train but their small size makes them perfect for tight spaces. They also have plenty of energy, making them great playmates who’ll enjoy running around with your kids.

On the other hand, Minis can be quite vocal—so if you’re looking for a quieter pup this may not be the breed for you! In any case, this lovable and loyal pal will always make sure you’re never far away from adventure.

Mini Australian Shepherd Puppy Health Considerations

Though generally very happy and long-lived — with an average lifespan of around 12-15 years — our Mini Australian Shepherds for sale are not without their unique health concerns. Like every breed of dog, there are a few conditions you should be aware of before you consider purchasing one of our Mini Aussie puppies for sale. Understanding the risks allows you to know the signs and prevent small health concerns from turning into big ones.

Mini Australian Shepherd puppies are at a somewhat elevated risk for developing the following conditions:

  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Eye Disorders
  • Allergies

Two common conditions include hip dysplasia and progressive retinal atrophy, both of which can potentially have a negative effect on quality of life.

With some basic knowledge of the breed’s health concerns, you can be sure to give your Mini Australian Shepherd the best possible chance at a long and healthy life. Finding a Mini Aussie puppy for sale from a reputable breeder can also dramatically — although, not eliminate — the risk of your dog developing some of these conditions. At Keystone Puppies, we work exclusively with experienced breeders who are committed to producing healthy & happy pups.

Mini Aussie Puppy Coat & Coat Care

Mini Australian Shepherds have beautiful, full coats that require some extra care and attention to maintain their lush appearance. Fortunately, Mini Aussies enjoy being groomed, so taking the time to brush their coat every week with a metal comb or grooming rake can help reduce tangles and shedding. Regular baths are also necessary – preferably once a month or more – in order to keep the coat free of dirt and debris. You will want to use a good quality shampoo specifically designed for dogs on your Mini Aussie’s coat as this will help keep it healthy and shiny. Additionally, trims around the face, feet and tail areas will keep your Mini Aussie looking neat and tidy! Overall, by dedicating some extra care to your Mini Aussie’s coat, you can enjoy having a gorgeous-looking pooch!
