Tiny Toy Aussie

Thinking about purchasing a Toy Aussie which appears to be extra small. She is 5 months old and weighs just about 6 lbs. When will she be fully grown and how much more growing does she have left?


Note from Anton Just wanted to clarify that Toy Aussies (and even Miniature Aussies) are not considered a variation of the Australian Shepherd breed at this time. However I've posted your question here in case anyone can provide an answer for you.

Teacup and toy Australian Shepherd
by: Rhyse

Mini. and Toy Australian shepherds ARE recognized by both the National Stock dog and American Stock dog associations. Just because AKC does not register them does not mean they are not a breed! Teacup in any breed is a slang for extra small.

The smaller version of the aussie's are wonderful companion dogs and make a fabulous house mate! They are very eager to please and therfore very trainable. To see the different sizes please visit my website @ tcuptoyaussie.com

At 5 months the puppy should have apx. 2/3 of their growth. At 9 months they will have most of their height. From that point on they will fill out. Aussies get their full coat and have a fully developed skeletal mass at age two.
