 On Face Book


At RuffNTuff Aussies, I am a hobby breeder in Texas of Miniature Australian Shepherds Located about 1 hour north of Houston Texas off Hwy 59, which breeds Miniature Australian Shepherds to the Breed Standard.  Miniature Australian Shepherds have all the attributes of the larger Australian Shepherd Dogs and all the advantages of being a smaller dog.

Miniature Australian Shepherds weigh on average between 20 to 40 lbs at maturity and per MASCA Standards, the "preferred height" at the withers for males is fourteen (14) to eighteen (18) inches; that for females is fourteen (14) up to but not including eighteen (18) inches.                

The Miniature Australian Shepherd is a well balanced dog of medium size and bone. Is alert, having good strength, stamina, and agility.  The disposition of the Miniature Australian Shepherd is intelligent and confident, may be a bit reserved of strangers.  Miniature Australian Shepherds are highly devoted to their owner and will go to great lengths to please, and they are easy to train.

As Hobby breeders of Miniature Australian Shepherds in Texas,  RuffNTuff Aussies strives for the true look of the Australian Shepherd and the perfect family pet.  Be sure to check out Our Males and Our Females to view our Miniature Australian Shepherds and any up and comers, and of coarse the Available page to see if we have any Miniature Australian Shepherd Puppies for sale or Miniature Australian Shepherd dogs for sale at this time.  All of our puppies come pre-spoiled, socialized, handled from birth until the day they leave for their new homes. All RuffNTuff Aussie Puppies can be registered with one or more of the following Kennel Clubs:

  • (ASDR) American Stock Dog Registry
  • (NSDR) National Stock Dog Registry

As Hobby breeders of Miniature Australian Shepherds in Texas, all our Australian Shepherds who have come to breeding age have their hips X-rayed and are OFA fair or better and Eyes certified clear and normal.  All of our breeding stock have been checked genetically for PRA Progressive Retinal Atrophy and HC Hereditary Cataracts as well as MDR1 Multi-Drug Resistance.  All puppies produced and sold here from RuffNTuff Aussies for breeding stock will either be cleared genetically by Ancestry for PRA and HC, or will be tested clear.

All puppies under 6 months old will come with a health guarantee to two (2) years of age.  Tails and dewclaws will be done. Vaccinations appropriate for their age and at least 3 wormings by 8 weeks of age.  I strive to make sure that our puppies go to homes where they will be loved, and that when you receive your Miniature Australian Shepherd Puppy you will be able to enjoy that Puppy beginning from day one. You will get a very happy, healthy Puppy.

RuffNTuff Aussies in Texas will gladly ship anywhere in the United States of America at Buyer's expense. When shipping I recommend shipping our dogs either via Air with our preference of Airlines Continental, usually $300 - $350 which includes the flight, vet exam, health certificate, new crate, and toy, or by the Linderland Stage as they are well cared for and shipped right to your door!
