Here at BWild We abide by the Breed Standards set forth by our parent clubs:

Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA) Statement:

The Miniature Australian Shepherd, North American Shepherd, North American Miniature Australian Shepherd, and/or Toy Australian Shepherd breeds are not recognized as a variety of Australian Shepherd by ASCA. The club considers such dogs to be a distinct and separate breed and will not accept them into its registry.

"Our bylaws state that ASCA's purpose is: 'To encourage members and breeders to accept one breed standard for the Australian Shepherd as approved by the Club as the only standard of excellence by which Australian Shepherds shall be judged.' It is the mission of this club ASCA and the mission of its members to preserve the breed rather than change it."

The United States Australian Shepherd Association (USASA)

Statement concerning the Miniature Australian Shepherd, Toy Australian Shepherd, and Miniature American Shepherd.

Recently there has been a rise in the movement to breed miniature and toy versions of the Australian Shepherd. 

The MAS are not recognized or considered varieties of the Australian Shepherd by this organization, the United States Australian Shepherd Association, Inc. (USASA), or by the American Kennel Club (AKC).   Since these dogs are not AKC registered, they cannot be verified by USASA as purebred, and therefore are not considered Australian Shepherds by this organization.

The USASA does not support the purposeful breeding of Miniature Australian Shepherds and Toy Australian Shepherds, and expects all members who have breeding programs to breed to the USASA/AKC recognized standard of excellence. The USASA further expects all members to be ever vigilant in the preservation and protection of the Australian Shepherd.


Thank-you for taking some time out of your day to spend with us here at BWild.  Please take a look around and enjoy your stay. Here at BWild we are privileged to live on beautiful Whidbey Island in the Pacific Northwest; because of the variety of nature available in the area, my dogs get to experience a variety of hiking in the mountains, biking, swimming in lakes, rivers and Puget Sound/the ocean.  I cherish being able to take my dogs so many dog friendly places with me as well as the great socializing experience it provides them.​​
