Those interested in the Australian Shepherd should be aware there are no size varieties of Australian Shepherds. There is no officially recognized Australian Shepherd variety such as "Standard", "Mini/Miniature", or "Toy" Australian Shepherd. Advertisers of Standard, Miniature or Toy varieties of Australian Shepherds are simply employing marketing terminologies to facilitate the sale of animals to the unsuspecting public that are, in reality, just dramatically smaller than the norm. Responsible, reputable Australian Shepherd breeders who care about protecting this unique American breed of stock dog do not promote the sale of Standard, Miniature or Toy varieties of Australian Shepherds. This is a marketing ploy to sell faulty, undersized pups for increased prices.
