Breed Clubs and Registeries

American Kennel Club  (AKC)
Starting July 2015 the Miniature American Shepherds gained full recognition with AKC and entered the
Herding Group.    For those who opted to go AKC, we were forced to change the breed name from Mini
Australian Shepherd to Miniature American Shepherd.  AKC will no longer recognize a size variety of a
breed already on the books.  That is OK, the dogs didnt originate in Australia anyway.  There are still
parent clubs that are oppose to the workings of AKC therefore have kept thier dogs as Mini Aussies.  
That club would be MASCA.  AKC offers more events and activities for your dogs.

Miniature American Shepherd Club USA  (MASCUSA)
formerly North American Miniature Australian Shepherd Club  (NAMASCUSA)
Name changed due to the club seeking AKC recognition which would not allow
the use of Miniature "Australian" Sherpherds... hence now Mini Americans !
