Your Australian Shepherd prior to breeding (please don't breed before age 2) must be DNA'd with ASCA and should also be DNA'd with AKC (blood and or swab) and then have at a minmimum the following health clearances: hips certified after turning age two by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals or via PennHip, eyes cleared annually by a certified opthalmologist, HSF4 (cataract testing done for genetic purposes - requires sending in a swab), MDR1 done (for health and genetic purposes - requires sending in a swab). This helps preserve the integrity and health of our breed. Breed ONLY to the ASCA standard. Links to clearances follow:

(LEGENDS & STARN CONCUR WITH THESE STATEMENTS):

Australian Shepherd Club of America: "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. "Our bylaws state that ASCA's purpose is: 'To encourage members and breeders to accept one breed standard for  the Australian Shepherd as approved by the Club as the only standard of excellence by which Australian Shepherds shall be judged.' It is the mission of this club and the mission of its members to preserve the breed rather than change it."

United States Australian Shepherd Association: "Recently there has been a rise in the movement to breed miniature and toy versions of the Australian Shepherd. The Miniature Australian Shepherd and the Toy Australian Shepherd are not recognized or considered varieties of the Australian Shepherd by this organization, the United States Australian Shepherd Association, Inc.(USASA), or by the American Kennel Club (AKC).   Since these dogs are not AKC registered, they cannot be verified by USASA as purebred, and therefore are not considered Australian Shepherds by this organization. The USASA does not support the purposeful breeding of Miniature Australian Shepherds and Toy Australian Shepherds, and expects all members who have breeding programs to breed to the USASA/AKC recognized standard of excellence. The USASA further expects all members to be ever vigilant in the preservation and protection of the Australian Shepherd."

Canadian National Australian Shepherd Association: "Recently there has been a rise in the movement to breed miniature and toy "versions" of the Australian Shepherd. The miniature/toy Australian Shepherd are not recognized or considered varieties of the Australian Shepherd by the following Clubs and organizations: *the Canadian National Australian Shepherd Association (CNASA) *the Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) *the Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA) *the United States Australian Shepherd Association, Inc. (USASA) *the American Kennel Club (AKC) *the United Kennel Club (UKC) Since these dogs are not CKC/ASCA/AKC and/or UKC registered, they cannot be verified as purebred, and therefore are not considered Australian Shepherds by this organization. The CNASA does not support the purposeful breeding of Miniature/Toy Australian Shepherds. The CNASA further encourages all members to be ever vigilant in the preservation and protection of the Australian Shepherd and recognize out Breed Standard of Excellence."
