Welcome to Desert Sun Miniature Australian Shepherds
and Miniature American Shepherds (AKC's name for
these wonderful dogs)!! I am a small hobby breeder
located in Buckeye, Arizona (20 miles west of Phoenix).  
My goal is to produce Miniature Australian Shepherds
and Miniature American Shepherds of correct type,
sound structure, and great temperaments.

My Mini's are part of the family. I do not keep my dogs in
kennels. They enjoy going camping, playing with the
kids, agility, conformation shows, rally, and just having a
good life.

All my dogs are health tested prior to being bred.  They
will have their hips OFA'd or Penn-Hipped, and their
eyes CERF'd. I also test the dogs for MDR-1, PRCD, and
Hereditary Cataracts. The mother will be health checked
prior to being bred.

All puppies will be whelped inside our home. Each
puppy will be socialized, healthy, and eager for their
new family. All will receive their appropriate
vaccinations and have a genetic health guarantee,as
well as being registered with AKC,
free to ask me about registering your Miniature
Australian Shepherd as a Miniature American Shepherd
with AKC.

I have safely shipped puppies by air after they are 8
weeks old. I make deliveries to the Southern California
area as well. Shipping is at the new puppy owner's
expense. I now have puppies living in Arizona,
California, Utah, Pennsylvania, Nebraska, Washington,
Texas, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and even Canada.

My companion puppies will be sold under a spay /
neuter contract only. I reserve the right to place my
puppies into suitable homes.
We are all Smiling!!
Are you?
