Gottabe's Doin The Hustle, "Hustle" finishing her Master's Agility CHAMPION Dog title (MACH)- WOW - what an accomplishment @ 3 years of age!!! Way to go Kathy & Hustle!!!
Mini-Americans have entered AKC Misc. class - A new AKC breed, but not new to us!! Catch Gottabe in the ribbons!!
Gottabe was established in 1994 with our first aussie, Jazmin from Sunshine Aussies. Our first breeding was in 2000 & produced, Mult. CH. Gottabe's Spot The Winner, Multi. CH. Simon Says Fairplay, OTCH MACH6 Multi-agility-titled Gottabe's Sparking Cider, and our wonderful Gottabe's Ima Makin U C Red. These crosses started the foundation of my kennel. Gottabe's goal for my minis is to consistently produce wonderful, affectionate, intelligent, healthy, biddable Aussies with a height range of 16-18" and weighing 22-35 pounds (though we don't always get what we want - ask any parent of a teenager!). We are now on our 4th generation and have produced many multi-titled conformation, agility, herding, obedience, Rally-O, and family companion extraordinaire! In addition, ALL of our breeding dogs have multiple generation health clearances also. Located in Nevada, but serve CA, OR, UT, WA and most of the US (including Alaska) & even "over the pond" in the UK!!

Gottabe's Sparkling Cider has retired from agility at the ripe age of 12 with her MACH 7. She is currently the only Miniature American Shepherd to have completed both the highest obedience title of OTCH, AND a MACH in agility 7 times. I want to personally congratulate Kay Guetzloff and Cider on this most impressive accomplishment!

Our goal will ALL breedings we do is to produce dog of sound temperment, body & mind. A longtime breeder once told me, "Breed the best to the best and hope for the best". How true!!
