Milwin is a hobby kennel, located in Madison County Virginia about 70 miles south of Washington, DC. We are located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains and Shenandoah National Park where we enjoy the beautiful rural landscape of central Virginia. I have been involved with Australian Shepherds for more than 30 years and in that time have bred, raised, and shown in ASCA and AKC. In the past I have trialed and titled dogs in obedience and herding with a great deal of success. I have bred, raised, trained and handled a number of Australian Shepherds finishing their AKC and ASCA championships over the years.
Recently, we added the Miniature American Shepherd (MAS) breed to our family and we have been thrilled with ours. This breed was previously known as the Miniature Australian Shepherd prior to full AKC recognition as a separate breed in July 2015. This breed was developed from the Australian Shepherd and remaining true to their ancestory I find this breed to have all the qualities and characteristics of the Australian Shepherd (aussie) except are smaller in size. Please see the below photos of our Miniature American Shepherds along side of our Australian Shepherds. As you will note they are slightly more than half the size of your typical aussie.
