Miniature American Shepherds
& Australian Shepherds
My dogs live, work and play alongside me at the farm. AKC registry recognized Miniature American Shepherds, or "Mini Aussies" as they are sometimes nicknamed are incredibly bright, friendly, loyal breed-- a "downsized" version resembling the Australian Shepherd. They excel in agility, fly ball, Frisbee, most any activity-involving interaction with their owners. Miniature American Shepherds are extremely loving, intelligent, versatile and loyal. In some, they have retained their herding instinct and drive. Puppies are born and raised in my home, handled, weighed and doted on daily. My breeding program places a huge emphasis on Temperament and Conformation. All of my puppies go to companion homes where they must sleep in the home at night.
Their innate desire is to be with you, to protect you, your family, and your home, to please you and be your best friend. I look for homes where our dogs will be a part of the family.
My puppies go home with a homemade PupBox, a supply of the food they are used to & a blanket that smells like their litter & family. They are vaccined, dewormed and health checked by a veterinarian before they leave for their new homes. My puppies are raised in my home, taught the Puppy Culture curriculum and are mostly potty trained before they go home. For the rest of your puppies life, we will keep in contact through my private puppy family Facebook group, where you will have a community of Showkayce puppies to share and socialize with. I offer lifetime customer support should you have any questions.
ABOVE: The original dog yard when it was first built in 2017. Since then, it has been expanded to allow the dogs access to a full acre of lilac bushes, garden, covered porch with dog beds and open space. In 2019 an indoor heated dog building was built with a dog door! The dogs continue to enjoy being house dogs with the option to run and play.

GOOFY - CHEERFUL - DORKY
Sadie is an Australian Shepherd and NOT part of my Miniature American Program.
Sadie is my first ever show dog! Sadie is bright, hilarious clown who has never met a stranger in her life.
She took Best Baby Puppy in Show at her first show in 2018. She quickly finished her CKC Championship in 2018 and as of January 2022 I stepped into the ring for my show ring debut and we grabbed the final point needed for her Grand Championship!
My co-owner and I will be selecting a dog that will compliment her for a 2022 litter of show puppies. We are looking for show homes and companion homes for this litter.
