Ruby River Mini Australian Shepherds is a small kennel located near Atlanta Georgia. My husband and myself are dedicated to the awesome Mini Aussies, and we strive to provide, wonderful companion pets through careful planning and breeding. We breed one or two litters per year with a focus on producing the most structurally sound mentally and physically healthy puppies
Our puppies are whelped and raised right in our home, with lots of individual attention and socialization.
Our first Aussie Experience, Megan! “In 1991, I purchased a Blue Merle pup for my husband. We had a small farm with horses and 2 goats that actually belonged to the neighbor. Megan was a natural. She kept the horses and the goats in line! She had a natural ability to understand commands, her boundaries along with a sweet disposition. Megan lived to be about 15 years old… and we missed her so much. We decided to get another Aussies, but this time we wanted a “Mini”. We liked the idea that the Mini was smaller, Approximately 30lbs, They still have the temperament, herding instinct and are healthy, hardy dogs that are make great companions.
After much research on pedigree’s, health, genetic issues, temperament and conformation, we decided on a lovely red tri and we named her “Ruby”. Ruby is a beautiful deep red tri with the most wonderful playfulness. She is our ball chaser/retriever. Ruby and Rio produced a litter of puppies and “River” was the pick of the litter.
River is my constant, follow me with in inches, companion. We adore each other’s company. River does very well in Agility. She is a natural because she never takes her eyes off of me. This is a perfect trait for Agility training. River (Red Merle) has produced some truly beautiful litters of puppies.
All of our Aussies are OFA cleared and CERF certified. The adults visit the ophthalmologist on a yearly basis, to be sure no eye issues have developed.
While we do strive to breed only the best in our Aussies, all of our puppies and dogs are first and foremost wonderful companions! We love the versatility of this wonderful breed! Whether you are interested in Conformation, Agility or Obedience, our goal is to not only promote the Mini Australian Shepherd breed as a wonderful show dog but as an all around dog…a beautiful conformation dog and an awesome companion all rolled in to one package!
