Mini Aussies—Not Accepted?
I supposedly have a 'AKC Mini Aussie'. I've had several Shelties in my lifetime and while he has some similar looks as Shelties, his personality is clearly Aussie (based upon the books I've been reading). I was surprised to hear at my recent obedience class that 'Mini' Aussie's are not 'accepted' by the Aussie community because they are bred with other breeds. I have AKC papers on my dog... are they fake? It doesn't really matter—I love love love my little guy BUT... I'd like to understand this issue.
