About us...

About us... I have had an Aussie in my life for the better part of forty or so years. They were of the standard variety and my first was Coon Dog because he had the black patches over both eyes. That dog could herd cattle and track wild animals and he could always find me no matter how hard I tried to hide. He was always with me when I was horse back, no matter how many miles a day.

AP Ranch is located in Fallbrook, Sunny Southern California, about an hour North of San Diego and a about a half hour South of Temecula in Riverside County. We service Central and Northern California and we have pups all over the United States, from "sea to shinning sea".

AP Ranch started 26 years ago by raising Miniature Dachshunds and World Class Paint and Quarter Horses. We always had a full sized Aussie to protect the Doxies Thirteen years ago we found the Mini Aussies. At that time they were registered with ASDR, NSDR, MASCA, and NAMASCUSA. They have now been accepted into AKC and are called Miniature American Shepherds.

Our mission is to produce the best pets that we can and always try to improve the breed. All of our parent dogs are genetically tested for all known genetic defects, so you the owner can rest assured that for years to come your dog will not have a genetic defect that may cause an early death. We give you copies of all the parents testing so you can share it with your veterinarian. ......See About us


All the dogs you see on this web site are the actual dogs that I own. I will always show both parents and they will be listed on the male or female page.  I may occasionally list puppies for friends or people who have bred to my males. There will always be pictures of the parents of each litter listed
