Welcome! If you are looking to add a Teacup, Mini, or Toy Australian Shepherd to your home then you are at the right place! Misty’s Toy Aussies is a small home-based hobby breeding program which stems from our love and devotion to this wonderful breed. We strive for excellence in breeding and raising these precious little pups. Quality, temperament, beauty, and health are several key aspects of our breeding program. We aim to enhance these qualities with every litter that we are blessed with here at Misty’s Toy Aussies.
We are completely devoted to the Toy Australian Shepherds that share our home and lives. All of our Toy Aussie pups live very comfortably in our clean, loving, indoor home environment located on 10 beautiful country acres with a 100 x 50 dog run and a 50 x 50 dog run making for the perfect quiet country setting in which to raise our Toy Australian Shepherds. Our Toy Aussies are hand raised. They are around active children of all ages, family members, and friends on a regular basis. Our Toy Aussies live for car rides, trips to the ice cream parlor, and just about every weekend (weather permitting) we take them to the local parks or to local outdoor craft show where they get tons of attention! They love making new friends! They are great all around people pets regardless if you are single, married, young, or old, Toy Australian Shepherds adapt well to all types of owners. My buyers are always so suprised to see how loving, and socialized my pups are upon delivery. Our Toy Aussies are a very special part of our big family.
One thing that sets our program apart from other breeders is that All of our Toy Aussie parents have been FULL PANEL genetically tested to be sure they are completely healthy to breed. You will find that many breeders only test for PRA-prcd, MDR-1, and H/C -- not us! We feel strongly about the full panel approach to disease testing. Even though it is very expensive to do full panel testing, we do this because we believe it's very important to protect the financial and emotional investment that we and potential puppy buyers have in their dogs and we are committed to producing the most genetically sound puppies possible. If you don't purchase a puppy from me PLEASE be sure your breeder does genetic testing and don't be shy to ask to see the results. You can read more about genetic testing and view the results of my dogs by clicking HERE.
The second thing that separates our program apart from other breeders is that our Toy Australian Shepherd puppies are raised using the Puppy Culture Protocol starting at birth, and we recommend this to our Buyers. It is the Go to Guide for raising puppies, Puppies raised with enrichment effects, like Puppy Culture, have improved cardio vascular performance (stronger heart rates), stronger heart beats, a stronger adrenal system that works better and faster when they need it, and are more tolerant of stress with greater resistance to disease. They have also increased learning ability, with better retention, and appear more stable, less fearful, and better able to cope with and recover from frightening or stressful situations/things. Scientific Studies have shown that Enrichment Effects (like Puppy Culture) actually cause animals to grow up to 5% more brain (and within that, are anywhere from 25-200 neuro-connections!). Studies have shown that the area of the brain where these new brain cells form is actually the area related to learning, memory, and emotional response! We do this so that our Buyers can have the best possible companion. We want you to be able to live with your dog for many many years to come and to enjoy then as much as we do. We start crate, potty, house training and basic commands such as sit, and lay. We also begin leash training. To learn more of what's included please visit our Puppy Pricing Guidelines page.
Our puppies can be VIP white gloved hand delivered at your local airport anywhere in the world! Puppy will fly comfortably on the lap in the main cabin We do NOT ship our Toy Aussie pups cargo. You can read more about our shipping options on our FAQ's page.
