2018 was an exciting year for Dynasty Miniature American Shepherds. Here are a few of our accomplishments. We are looking towards our future and the exciting new ventures that we have planned!
Dynasty Minis is very proud to have several dogs in the top 20 for FAST CAT. At the top of the rankings is our very own girl, Quest, who is a Rosie and Kane puppy! Dynasty Minis is very proud of Quest and her owners. As of December 3rd, Dynasty's Vision Quest RA FDC CAX FCAT RATO DN CGCA TKP 28.02 MPH. We are very proud of all the hard work all the owners have done to get these new titles!
Dynasty's Vision Quest FDC CAX DCAT RATN CGCA TKP RA DN has earned her Dock Novice title and won her division! This super-athletic 2016 Kane/Rosie daughter was born super charged, super smart, and super fun. In 2016, she earned her AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy at four months old. In 2017, she earned titles in Canine Good Citizen, Coursing, FAST CAT, Trick Dog, Farm Dog and Barn Hunt and worked on her Diving Dog title. Through July of 2018, she has earned her Coursing Ability Excellent, Canine Good Citizen Community (Advanced), Dock Novice, Rally Novice (placed in all three trials), and Rally Advanced (placed in two of three trials and qualified for 2019 Rally Nationals). She also earned the Achiever Dog Award and is an active team member of the International Toss N Fetch League.
This little gal is afraid of nothing, tackles each day with bright wonder, and has a great sense of humor. She attracts widespread attention everywhere she goes, receiving kind complements of how pretty she is. What are Quest's future plans? This season, she is scheduled to continue with Diving Dog, FAST CAT (currently tied for third place in breed), and Barn Hunt. She has demonstrated a keen interest in Herding, Nose Work, Obedience, and Agility. Time will tell.

At his very first show, Dynasty's California Icon "Connor" won Best in Show puppy at the prestigious Beverly Hills Kennel Club over 80 other four-six month puppies. Connor was shown by his owner Terri Rodman. We are looking forward to the future of this team.
Dynasty's Harley Quinn, CGC, RN is from Rosie and Kane's second litter born January 15, 2016. She got her first leg at the Birch Run show, with a score of 89 and second place on April 30th. She got her next two legs and at the Novi show January 19th and 20th. With scores of 92 and 93, both were second place. Her future plans are to compete in lure coursing this summer and get those titles, as well continue perusing rally, start showing in agility and get her trick dog titles. Quinn is owned by Katie Didur.
After much research, then a visit to Fran in Michigan, I knew Dynasty Minis would have the puppy for me. Dynasty's Truly Amaising BN, CD, CDX, CGCA, CGCU is a 2014 Kizzy and Desi baby. Fran knew I was looking for a MAS puppy with the intelligence, temperament, and drive to compete in obedience and agility. Our ultimate goal is to obtain an OTCH.
At 3 years old, we are ready to start our Utility competition in March and also agility lessons. At the shows we attend, Maisie is almost always the youngest dog competing in our level. She loves to work and is smart and quick to learn. We have done some work with sheep, and she decided a couple of times to jump through the fence and round up my brother's goats; the first time when she was just eight months old.
I love this girl; her intelligence and loyalty never cease to amaze me. And, she loves to cuddle as much as she loves to work. I am proud to be a Dynasty Minis momma and to tell people that Fran and Kim are my breeders.
