Dynasty Minis' success comes from teamwork. Fran and Kim both plan for and whelp the litters. Fran is the one who spends the first few months with the show prospects before they move South to start their career. Fran also presents several of the dogs in the ring and has several owner handler group placements. Kim gets the dogs at about 5 months old and gets them into condition to show and used to being on the road. Our handler, Arvind DeBraganca, and his wife Joyce spend hours training, grooming and presenting our dogs. They are an integral part of our team.

Breeding for Health, Structure, Temperament and Versatility
At Dynasty Miniature American Shepherds, we pride ourselves on quality. We are very selective in our breeding program and with that we produce a small number of litters each year. Our owners become part of our extended family and we enjoy keeping up-to-date on pups' progress. We invite you to take a look at our dogs and welcome any questions regarding our breeding program. The vast majority of our dogs are registered as Miniature American Shepherds, but we do still have some Miniature Australian Shepherds in our program. The Miniature American Shepherd moved to the Herding Group in July 2015.
All breeding stock have their OFA (Orthopedic Foundation of America) ratings (hip), eyes cleared and scissors bite. With all of the newly available DNA testing, many are also tested for extensive DNA results. All testing results are posted on each dog's page and links to OFA and CAER records are viewable.
