HUGHES  TOY Miniature Australian Shepherds 


  Small toy puppies expected to be under 12


we do not breed specifically for teacups.. to breed just to get smaller is not healthy- small teacup girls do not birth naturally and lots more health issues with tiny x tiny -  we do get smaller puppies from our small toy girls and teacup males.. but guarantee they VET CHECK 100% healthy to lead a normal healthy long life

we have a couple girls that have been bred - will post when know girls are cooperating


teacup toy aussies - estimated to be 10"   or under,


we have set these terms/sizes ourselves trying to distinquish between the sizes.. there is a major "volumetric" difference between the mature size/weight of a 13" TOY, and a 9" micro toy.   


thier ears may or may not be "perky" but will send ear glue to glue/set them down.. the smaller ears just tend to not have enough fold to go/stay over on their own- it is a fine line between perky ears & "spaniel" ears..

They maintain the smarts and temperment of the mini-toy aussie, we breed for not hyper or yippy  They don't have the health issues of other small breeds comparable in size, or the grooming requirements..

 PLEASE NOTE- we have selectively bred DOWN in size. these are not "runts" or premature puppies.  They are vet checked for health.  Science has now identified  "growth limiation" genes in dogs,  why a chihauha is smaller than a great dane.  multiple genes exist in smaller breeds and the number or type of limitation genes determines the dogs final size.  In the aussies, so many breeds went into the aussie that I think several different size limiting genes exist.  and if a puppy gets "all of them" they end up being smaller..  we have puppies that are 2 lbs at 9wks that mature only 4lbs.. they just don't grow anymore .. and rarely we get one that didnt' get any of the "stop growing" genes and matures much larger than their parents.  we can tell these at 4-6wks.. the puppy either slows/stops growing or just accelerates growth.



our goal with the teacup/toy aussies is to keep the intelligence, loyalty and looks of the aussie - minus the herding - in a smaller house sized dog that doesn't have the grooming requirements, health and yapping issues of most small toy breeds.
