Message from AKC!


I am delighted to inform you that our popular book, AKC Meet the Breeds, will be published in its third edition by BowTie Press this year. This up-to-date compilation of AKC breeds includes descriptions, facts and photos in an easy-to-read format for dog lovers of all ages. It is our goal to include every AKC-recognized breed in each edition of AKC Meet the Breeds. The American Kennel Club would like to invite the Miniature American Shepherd Club of the USA to participate in this project by providing at least two digital photos to represent the Miniature American Shepherd - one adult and one puppy!!

Guidelines for photos are listed below. All photos must be accompanied by signed permission forms (attached).

Guidelines for photos:

  • Digital photos must be at least 300 dpi and in .jpg format. No prints or slides, please.
  • Photos should portray a breed in a casual or natural setting (i.e. no show photos)
  • No people should be included in any photograph
  • Photos may be outdoor or indoor shots but background should be neutral and not too busy; a plain backdrop is optimal.
