The dogs below are all miniatures and toys they are 11 to 15 in tall and weigh 12 to 25 pounds they are our main breeding stock for minis and toys. we consider our ideal minis to be 13 to 15 in tall and weigh 15 to 20 pounds. we consider dogs 12in tall or less and weigh 15 pounds or less to be toy size minis. dogs 25 to 30 pounds we call mid size, they are a large mini or a small standard however you want to look at it.
We have raised Queensland Heelers since the 1960’s out of stock imported from Australia. The old style Heelers were not very large usually 25 to 40 pounds. My original female was very small she was only 20 pounds and was probably about 13 or 14 in tall, her parents were born in Australia, she was a true Queensland Heeler in a naturally small size. In every litter she would have a female or two that was her size or smaller, her daughters also produced some offspring that was smaller than themselves and so on. True miniatures are not the same as runts or dwarfs. they will produce genetically small offspring, some of the offspring will usually be smaller than the parents as long as the parents are near enough to the same size to be a good match. Even though our minis are little they are well balanced and are in all respects like the full size Heelers. We have developed the minis and the toys from the old style working dogs with out inbreeding them. we selected the smallest dogs from the litters and kept breeding smallest to smallest over many generations. When we select males to buy for breeding we look for dogs as much like ours as possible We prefer to buy pups out of small Australian stock. even then they do not always work out. Good full blood minis are hard to find. Our Charlie dog is an AKC dog that is genetically small and produces genetically small offspring in most of the litters no matter what size the female is. We have Standard, Miniature and toy size dogs sired by charlie. Spur is an old dog, he is 8 generations down from our original dogs from the 60’s he also produces pups of all sizes depending what the female is. His little females produce some offspring littler than themselves in most of there litters. Most of our minis and toys are registered as miniature Queensland Heelers.
