An impressive athlete in a small package, the Miniature American Shepherd (MAS) is energetic, agile and adaptable. A clever, medium-sized dog, the MAS has the heart of a ranch dog in the body of a house dog. Completing any job with style and enthusiasm, this highly intelligent and willing-to-please dog requires daily physical and mental exercise.
Did you know? Once a part of the Australian Shepherd breed, the MAS split from the Australian Shepherd Club of America to form its own breed in 2011.
