Been wanting to find an Aussie, definitely hoping my landlord will allow a pet on the property. Too bad none of the shelters around me have any, these dogs seem like they would be fun photo companions with their energy and characters.

You should check out petfinder.com... there are usually tons of Aussies up for adoption (not always local of course). You could always check out local breeders since they may be in touch with rescue leagues in the area.

Off the top of my head I know of two local'ish places you can call (I saw that you are from Maine)... the 1st is a breeder (who we got Ash from... see a few posts above). His website is http://www.cowboyaussi​es.net (external link). The second I'm not sure if it will help but if your interested in a mini-aussie is MARS (Mini Assie Rescue & Support)... they have New England based chapters who help out.

Good luck in finding an Aussie!

Also check here for Aussie rescues.

http://www.aussierescu​e.org/ (external link)

Aussies are in fact a lot of fun, but they are a lot of work to, this is no first time dog owner breed, Its a breed were training is a Must. They are very intelligent, and active, but also very stubborn, and they need work to do, If you can spare 2-4 hours of your time a day to play/train/exercise I would recommend you an aussie. If you cannot you will have an unhappy, destructive, dog.

Also check Border Collie rescues. Not only are they similar dogs in drive and personalities, but they will often have hybrids of Borders and Aussies and even some mostly Aussies. I've gotten three dogs from http://www.bcrescue.or​g/ (external link)

I love the shots of Ash and Bella above!

Here is one of my 12-year-old mini, Maggie, that I grabbed yesterday while I was shooting a friend's dog. (Mags is from a local SPCA; I found her on Petfinder when she was 9.)

This is Jenny. She's more of a mix, but my parents are pretty sure she's got some Aussie.

This is my 2 year old mini-Aussie, Rocket.

A ball retrieving, frisbee catching, dog chasing machine. And all he wants in return is constant affection (which he gets :)).

Pictures are just with a p&s. I am saving up for my first DSLR.

This is Pip a black tri Australian Shepherd. He appears to be a black bi. However, he has a small amount of copper on his leg, in his ear, and under his tail. In the latest photos he is 7 months old.

All beautiful dogs.

However, there is no such thing as toy or miniature Australian Shepherds. The "miniature/toy" Australian Shepherds are a different breed. This breed is called the North American Shepherd. The American Kennel Club, or Australian Shepherd Club of American does not and will not recognize this breed.

The breeders of these so called "Toy" Australian Shepherds are leading a campaign of deception. There are no "Toy" Aussies. They often incorporate other breeds to quickly bring about a reduction in size. Their selfish motivation to garner high bucks by capitalizing on a niche market is done at the expense of the well being and future of the Australian Shepherd.

There is no purpose for the miniaturization of this breed, which already comes in a moderate range of sizes from 18"-23". Despite their advertising claims, the reduction in size does not make these better urban dwellers than their legitimate counterparts.

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, and 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 normal. Responsible, reputable Australian Shepherd breeders who care about protecting this unique, American breed of stock dog do not promote the sale of Standard or Miniature or Toy Varieties of Australian Shepherds. This is a marketing ploy to sell faulty, undersized pups for increased prices."

If you're still interested in a Miniature or Toy Australian Shepherd, be advised that those dogs are not recognized by any reputable dog registry.(AKC, ASCA, Canadian KC) Breeders of Miniatures and Toys who state or imply to potential buyers that their dogs are Australian Shepherds are misrepresenting them, and you should proceed with caution.

Directly from the ASCA website (http://asca.org/ (external link)) in the Announcements section.
"The Miniature Australian Shepherd, North American Shepherd, North American Miniature Australian Shepherd, and/or Toy Australian Shepherd breeds are not recognized as a variety of Australian Shepherd by ASCA. The club considers such dogs to be a distinct and separate breed and will not accept them into its registry."
