I had planned to switch Wiz over to an AKC Mini American Shepherd, but the
proposal gave me no real incentive. Considering he is HALF an INCH oversized
and three-quarters Australian Shepherd, I decided to keep him as an Aussie for
one of my own Aussie girls someday.
WIZ IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE TO MINIATURE AMERICAN SHEPHERDS -
I may consider AKC Aussie stud service to proven, responsible breeders of
performance Australian Shepherds ( agility, herding, etc).
