Welcome to the Official Website of the 
Mid America Miniature American Shepherd Club

MAMASC was formed in 2008 by a group of Miniature Australian Shepherd enthusiasts.  Now, with the move to AKC, we are very excited to have the dogs recognized by AKC as Miniature American Shepherds. As of July 1st 2015 our dogs made the move into the Herding Group with AKC.  We will be promoting the Miniature American Shepherds and supporting our parent club throughout the USA and Mid America!

MAMASC is active in hosting 2 herding trials, 2 agility trials and 2 Farm Dog Certification Trials per year currently. In 2022 we added 2 ATT Trials.  We have also held specialties, futurities, juniors' conformation and rally trials.  Members are encouraged to participate in the planning, execution, and participation in these trials. MAMASC has been the coordinator and benefactor in National Goodwill Ambassador Awards. It also sponsors the herding trials at MASCUSA Nationals. Awards are given each year to dog and handler teams who participate in AKC and Non-AKC activities.  Our Team Activity page highlights each team submitting information on their activities, awards and titles.  To see Special Recognitions, continued to scroll down this page.

MAMASC is an affiliate club of MASCUSA, our parent club in AKC.
