Sonoran Hills Miniature American Shepherds
aka Mini Aussies
Welcome to Sonoran Hills located in the Foothills of the Superstition Mountains of Arizona
SONORAN HILLS MINIATURE AMERICAN SHEPHERDS and Mini Aussies is located in the foothills of the beautiful Superstition Mountains near, metro Phoenix, Arizona, about 35 miles east of the city. Our puppies are bred for pure enjoyment, love of the breed and strong commitment for quality not quantity. Our focus is on breeding puppies meeting the highest breed standards and health. Close attention monitored for size, head, neck and body proportion, solid structure, coat, color, and temperament with high intelligence, enthusiasm, and resilience. With their family they are protective, good nature, devoted and loyal. Qualities in which they will enjoy outdoor activities, playful with children, strong athletic contenders for both agility and herding with high intellect to be excellent therapy dogs. Most importantly, I seek placement of my puppies where they will be a cherished and valued member of the family.
