Miniature American Shepherds

No available puppies at this time.

The latest Rocking J litter have gone to their forever homes!  Thanks to all the past, present and future customers of Rocking J Miniature American Shepherds for your trusting me to breed your pet, companion, and AKC performance dog. 

The next Rocking J litter(s) should be arriving in late summer, for pups leaving to homes in early fall.
See the "NEWS" section below for other things happening at Rocking J!

News!! News!!  News!!

 I have been busy over the past few months building a kennel barn so that I can relocate my breeding program to the family farm in Rogersville, AL, about 45 miles from where I have been living.  I moved the dogs and myself  to the barn in mid-March.  I do not have internet service at the new location (and appears I may not get it for quite some time), so updates to the website and Facebook may not be timely!   Feel free to call or email at the above contract information for up-to-date info.

What a busy, but exciting month March 2018 was!  In addition to moving, I added two young breeding prospects as well.  One is a cute little red tri female from the Picasso kennel in Surprise, AZ.  Thanks to Becky Gilbert for entrusting me with her wonderful bloodlines.  Look for this little spitfire in the showring in the future!

The second breeding prospect is from my friend Leslie Peckham at Southern Starr in Texas.  This pup is actually a Millie granddaughter and Gypsy great grandaughter.  I have been wanting to add a BamBam baby back to my program, and when there was a very correct red tri female out of her Grand Champion "Dottie", I couldn't  resist!  It's going to be fun (and challenging) raising TWO fiesty redheads in the coming months!  

 I have also entered in to a co-own agreement with a couple of my breeding friends on a lovely blue merle male adult.  He is living in the Beaumont TX area and is available for stud to select females.  He is the sire to my most recent litter out of Millie.  I have retained one male and a friend has another in a guardian home.  I am SO looking forward to watching these boys grow up!

As far as future litters in 2018, I hope to breed Annie and Paige.  Both should have late summer/early fall litters.  Annie is a Cricket daughter.  Paige has her own page on this website.

The Adult Dogs of Rocking J




In 2014, I made the decision to register all of my Mini Aussies with AKC (American Kennel Club) as Miniature American Shepherds.  This allowed my Miniature Australian Shepherds to be recognized by AKC and allows them opportunities to compete in a wider array of competitive venues offered by AKC.  This does not change who my dogs are.  Their pedigrees are that of full sized Australian Shepherds (including Legacy, Mill Creek, Timberline, and Three Oaks lines) crossed with dogs carrying the foundation Mini Aussie lines of Pockets, Coat Tails, Southern Cross, and TMR.  Technically, since July 1, 2015, they are a separate breed, but they are the same beautiful and talented dogs they have always been, but they have a new name.
