Welcome to
Welcome to our website. Please take a moment to get acquainted
with a most amazing breed of dog-toy and miniature aussies.

We are Lani Morris and Pat Greer and we live on a farm outside of
Owensboro, KY with horses, cattle, cats and eleven toy and mini

We have been breeding toy and mini aussies for over seven years
and have placed puppies with great owners in Canada, Mexico,
Sweden, Germany, and Ireland and from coast to coast in the US.

Our dogs are members of our family. We never lose sight of what
they have done for us and in return, they are treated like royalty.
Yeah, you could say they are a little spoiled!

We are proud to be backyard breeders. Our dogs are raised in our
backyard, our kitchen, our laps and arms-not in kennels!

Puppies can't learn anything spending their first 8 weeks locked in

Morning and evening we take our dogs for long runs over the farm,
and they ALL go, including the puppies. Running with our adult dogs,
our puppies get the chance to learn, adapt, interact, and use their
brains and bodies.

They learn the concept of pottying away from where they sleep and
eat. They learn to follow, to come when they are called, and they see
humans as pack leaders who call the shots and keep them secure.
They learn the dynamics of life as part of a pack.

When our puppies leave us to join their new families, they transition
well into their new homes because of all the learning opportunities they
have had.

Our puppies learn to "Think outside the pen," and are better dogs for

Early socialization is paramount to raising a successful toy aussie.

Most people who own dogs also own cats. (Does anybody really ever
own a cat?) Our puppies interact with our four cats who teach them
the ropes. They are fun to play with, but they must be treated with
respect. They have needles in their toes and sometimes short fuses!

Just about the time you
think you have the cat,
the next thing you know, the cat has YOU!
Respecting the personal space of
others is an important lesson;)
Our puppies are guaranteed to be cat friendly
and contrary to what this picture implies, no
puppy has ever been harmed by one of our cats!
AKC has recognized our breed. Our miniature and toy australian
shepherds had to be given a new name.

That new name is the Miniature American Shepherd.

Miniature American Shepherds are now being registered with AKC
and exhibited in the Miscellaneous Classes enroute to being a fully
recognized AKC breed.

At this point, we have chosen to keep our dogs registered with

All of our puppies can be registered with AKC as Mini Americans.

We are branching out to include Mini Americans and are in the early stages of
researching bloodlines and acquiring dogs to be the basis of our program.

We have a gorgeous young boy named Mockingbird's Colder Weather. He has already
passed his genetic testing and is N/N for MDR1, PRA/prcd, and HC. He is stunning.

We are adding a Mockingbird girl later this year. Can't wait!

Our puppies come with a one year health guarantee. These little dogs are equally at home in the city or on the farm,
travel well and are extremely biddable and adaptable. Big dog looks and intelligence, but you can scoop them up with
one hand! Sound, sane and well socialized with kids, cats and other dogs.
Jake went Best In Miscellaneous at his first AKC Sanctioned B Match.
He is a born show dog and an absolute delight to live with.
