Miniature American Shepherd

The Miniature American
Shepherd was developed in California during the late 1960’s with the
breeding of small Australian Shepherds. These dogs were bred with a
goal of maintaining their small size, active character and intelligence.
The breed was first registered with the National Stock Dog Registry
in 1980 and was originally called the Miniature Australian Shepherd.
By the early 1990’s, they had attained nationwide popularity and were
shown in various rare-breed organizations. The first parent breed club
and registry, MASCUSA, was formed in 1990 and incorporated in
1993. The breed entered the AKC Foundation Stock Service as the
Miniature American Shepherd in May 2011. The Miniature American
Shepherd Club of the USA (MASCUSA) is the designated national

Collie, rough

BRIEF HISTORICAL SUMMARY: The rough and the smooth

selected stock for future breeding, but the fact remains that the two
breeds derived very recently from the same stock and, in truth, share
lines which can be found in common to this day. The Rough Collie
is the somewhat refined version of the original working collie of the
Scottish shepherd, from which it has been selected over at least a
hundred years. Many of the dogs can still perform satisfactorily at
work, offered the chance. The basic message is that for all his
beauty, the Collie is a worker.   FCI breed standard
