That’s me in the top-right corner of the picture above. I am the owner of Tiny H Toys . By the way, I’m the “Tiny H” in Tiny H Toys (my husband’s idea). All my friends call me Tiny. I’ve been breeding Toy Australian Shepherds for a little over four years now after my passion for these precious little toys finally got the best of me.
My husband, John, and I are the owners of Hodge Ranch. We are one of the most reputable ranching families in South West Texas. Contrary to the old saying, “everything grows big in Texas,” I selectively match my dams and sires to produce the most stunning, lovable and true-to-breed (10″ to 13″) Toy Aussies with show champion genetics you will find anywhere.Click to Email Us
Fancy Pants and Tina took Las Vegas by storm at the ASDR (American Stock Dog Registry) Invitational Dog Show held December 6 and 7, 2014. The top 50 dogs in the US were invited to compete in various classes and our Fancy did herself proud, placing RESERVE in the 12 month to 3 year old conformation class.
Her herding instinct came to the front when she was chosen Top Herding Dog. She also placed 5th in agility, even though this was the first agility class she has ever participated in. Fancy demonstrated to the world, she has it all….conformation, herding instinct, and agility. WHAT A DOG!!
The Australian Shepherd became popular back in the 1950s when they were featured rodeo performers. They have become very popular in the past few years due to the combination of their small size, high energy level and endurance.
The toy Australian Shepherd is intelligent and eager to learn. It is loyal and devoted, bonding closely with the family. Aussies are confident and lively and are known to behave like puppies, even as adults. They are affectionate and kindhearted. They also have the natural instinct of herding and the same conformation and looks of the Standard Australian Shepherd. They are proof “love comes in TOY packages.”
Toy Aussies make excellent house dogs with proper exercise. They can also tolerate the out-of-doors in most areas with protection from extreme temperatures. They have a life span of between 10 to 15 years. They typically have 3 to 5 puppies in a litter. A Toy Aussie is fun to train because they learn quickly and are usually eager to please and adapt to a wide variety of sports and games. The Toy Aussie requires little grooming but a thorough combing is required when shedding. Bathe them only when necessary.
