Schaefer’s Mini American Shepherds
Tonya Schaefer, NC
Schaefer’s Aussies and now Miniature American Shepherds, I have trained, shown, and trialed the dogs I have owned in AKC, Canada, UKC, ASCA, USRC(Rottweilers), successfully since 2001.
Before my dogs are considered for breeding, they have a minimum of hip and elbows passed by OFA, genetic testing and they have had their eyes CERF’d. However you will see more health tests completed before the breeding ever takes place.
I only breed dogs that I feel are a good representative of the breed, which includes temperament/health/breed standard, regardless of how many titles I have put on them or health tests they have passed.
All puppies are raised following the Puppy Culture Program. They whelped and raised in the house under foot (not in a kennel), so they have plenty of socialization, are started on housebreaking and crate training before leaving for their new home at 8 weeks.
I am a Member in Good Standing with Miniature American Shepherd Club Of The USA.
Affiliate Club – Southeastern Miniature American Shepherd Club, AKC & UKC. I am am AKC Breeder of Merit and AKC Bred with H.E.A.R.T member.
