15″ Red Tri, The matriarch of my breeding program is LasRocosa Meg. She was bred by Jeanne Joy Hartnagle Taylor, the author of the most sought after book on the Australian Shepherd. Meg’s ancestors go all the way back to the original Basque dogs credited with being the foundation to the Australian Shepherd. However, the Basque dogs were not large dogs and were more the size of what many refer to as the miniature Australian Shepherd of today. LasRocosa Meg is 15 inches tall and weighs 33 lbs. You just don’t find many more champion Hall of Fame Australian Shepherds in the background of miniature sized Australian Shepherds than you do in LasRocosa Meg’s pedigree.
