Welcome to Ridgestar Aussies

Small family breeder of miniature Australian Shepherds located in Weatherford, TX area.

Breeding for excellence in temperament, structure, type and sound genetic health.

Our dogs are raised as part of our family, not in a kennel! Our local area is Weatherford, Dallas, Fort Worth, Parker County & all of Texas.


Dear Friends ~

As many of you know, after 30 years in Bellingham, Washington & 24 years of providing wonderful canine family members, Charlie & I downsized & moved to Weatherford, Texas. You ask, why? Warmer weather, blue skies, smaller property AND family! Not necessarily in that order.

I have shipped puppies all over the world, either in cabin or in cargo. Every puppy leaves us prepared for their trip. Coming personally to pick up your puppy is always encouraged.

As usual, lifetime support for my puppy parents is and always will be a top priority. Visitors are welcome here anytime.

Stop by & see us, ya’ll!!

Sometimes it happens-Daisy whelped one pup, a healthy, gorgeous blue merle boy. He was born on May 13. More photos to come, as soon as his eyes open.

MASCAThrough MASCA, the parent club and registry for the Australian Shepherd of the miniature variety, the mini Aussie remains a size variety of the Australian Shepherd, with a continuous gene pool. The dogs will NOT become a separate breed, UNLIKE the AKC Miniature American Shepherd. Dog owners and future owners concerned with maintaining Australian Shepherd heritage, instinct, temperament and type in a mini Aussie, are invited to contact MASCA for additional information about the club and its goals.

A MASCA mini Aussie:

  • Is not registered with the AKC as a breed other than an Australian Shepherd
  • Is not the same as the AKC/FSS Miniature American Shepherd
  • Is the true Aussie of the miniature variety
  • Will always be an Aussie

MASCA is NOT seeking recognition as a Miniature American Shepherd with AKC/FSS.

MASCA will protect the integrity of the MASCA registry and continue to register Australian Shepherds of the miniature variety. We are true to the heritage of our dogs.

From time to time I retire dogs from my breeding program. Each of them is special in their own way and would LOVE to be the center of attention with folks who have the time for a canine companion. If you are interested in availability, please contact Mona Cooper at 360.303.8787 or info@ridgestaraussies.com.
