Welcome to Dynasty Miniature American Shepherds
Breeders of Champion Bloodline Mini American Shepherds
After a busy first few months of 2023, we will be on a break from breeding until the Summer of 2023.
Sienna and Cooper will not have puppies this spring. They will be bred again in early 2024 for an all-red litter.
Annika and Cooper will be bred in spring of 2024 in Michigan.
Tanzi and Cobain will be bred in summer of 2023 and will produce all four colors. This will be Tanzi's final litter before retirement.
Karma will be bred in the fall of 2023 in Alabama. Sire to be selected soon.
AKC Breeder of Merit Participant
Dynasty Miniature American Shepherds is proud to be an AKC Breeder of Merit.
The Only MAS Breeder with Three BIS Winners
Dax has become our third homebred Best in Show Winner. Dynasty is the only MAS breeder to have bred three BIS winners. In addition, they are all tricolor, which makes this more impressive! These three are all related to each other.
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 raises and trains puppies and presents them in puppy shows and also has done some owner handler showing with our dogs. 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 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.
