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

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

We have such AWESOME dogs, AWESOME owner/handlers and an AWESOME club! Our Awards program has not changed for 2018, the Board will continue to evaluate the program, especially as AKC continues to change their programs. Continue tracking of your team's progress throughout the year! Below you will see two documents--one is an example of how the form needs to be filled out. The other will be what you download to submit. There is no reason to download this form more than once and the form is good for both Top Five and Yearly Versatility categories. Just update the form during the year and submit often so we will have all the information on one form to do the Yearly Versatility Awards.
