Does Size Matter When Breeding Toy Aussies?
I currently breed Yorkies, but I want to add Toy Australian Shepherds into my program. With Yorkies, it is crucial that the male is smaller than the female so that her whelps are not too large to pass. Is this the same case in Aussies? I asked three breeders so far in my research, and they said it is not an issue. However, I want to hear from more people.
P.S. Please do not bash breeding. I am an experienced breeder and breed to AKC standards (for my Yorkies) to better the dog. I am in the research phase on breeding Aussies, but yes I already know you can't breed a merle to a merle. Every forum I've read seems to come down hard on those wanting to breed dogs... please resist the urge here.
