Toy

Toy Aussies range in height from 10"-14" at the shoulders and weigh between 10-18 pounds on average.  These cuties will curl up in your lap and are easily trained for agility games too.  Though they are a tad too short for long-distance runs ;)

Mini & Large Mini

Mini Aussies are 15"-16" in height at the shoulders and are trimmer in build compared to the larger mini.  Roughly around 18-25 pounds these cuties are still lap-sized, highly trainable, and built for agility and outdoor fun.

The Larger Mini is 16"-17" at the shoulders and 25-35 pounds.  These guys are over-sized lap lovers, built for running, hiking, agility, and fly-ball.

Colors of Aussie Fur

Affectionately known as "Aussie Glitter", Aussie fur comes in a variety of lengths and shades.

Black Tri Color

The "traditional" Aussie look- classic and strikingly beautiful. Characterized by a predominately black body, copper highlights with white blazing, and socks. Quantities of copper and white vary from dog to dog.

Red Tri Color

"Red" means chocolate-colored in the dog world. Red tri-colored dogs are either dark or light red, just like chocolate. So this dog is just like the black tri-colored dog, except its dominant color is red (chocolate) on its body- it is a dark red tri.

Bi Colored

Found in both red and black, bi-colored simply means they are a tri with OUT copper markings on their cheeks and legs.

Minimal White

From time to time a puppy is born withOUT white blazing on its face and less white on it's chest.  This is a genetic trait that some families carry.  For example, our retired momma Cassie would have one or two pups like this in every litter.  Just a bundle of chocolate cuteness.
