MULTI SIRED LITTERS
We recently met with AKC regarding DNA issues involving multi-sired litters and wanted to share the following information with you.
Multi-Sired Litters whelped prior to AKC Recognition - May, 2011. Owners of dogs that are being processed for AKC/FSS enrollment that were part of a multi-sired litter whelped prior to May, 2011, should contact the NAMASCUSA Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on required documentation. AKC will work with our Registrar on a case-by-case basis to determine if the documentation is sufficient to accept the dog for registration.
Multi-Sired Litters whelped after AKC Recognition - May, 2011.
- Individuals having multi-sired litters between two Miniature American Shepherd parents must use the AKC Multiple-Sired Litter application and the AKC DNA process.
- Individuals having multi-sired litters involving any other crosses, including those involving Miniature American Shepherds and AKC Australian Shepherds, should contact the NAMASCUSA Registrar at email@example.com for information.
- All offspring of multi-sired litters must have either a microchip number or a tattoo which must be listed on the DNA paperwork. If you don't want to microchip a puppy before it leaves for its' new home, you can purchase the microchip and send it with the new owner but the microchip number must be listed on the DNA paperwork. All DNA must be obtained through the lab used by AKC.
- All potential sires, the dam, and all puppies will be required to have DNA tests. You can read more about the AKC Multiple-Sired Litter registration process at http://www.akc.org/dna/multisire.cfm.

Calling all members who would like to see well written articles, brochures, and pamphlets with beautiful pictures for/about our dogs published
I need volunteers to assist with the Public Relations Committee. One of the first projects is to put together a feature article for the SHOWSIGHT Magazine. These are exciting times in the history of our club and your help and input is much needed. Please let me know through a private email if you would be willing to help with the all-important advertising for our club moving forward in full recognition in AKC. There are other very important items that need our attention as well. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to participate and help get the job done. Together we can have great information, beautiful pictures about our wonderful breed, information about their personalities and trait, along with their accomplishments all published for the public to see. It is my hope that we can form an outstanding PR Committee so we can share with the public how far we have come with our breed. Please consider this committee as your way to help get the information into print for our breed.
I think that the Working Aussie Source is one of the best locations on the net to find herding trials and clinics!
The opening page is for ASCA Trials but be sure and click on the Other Calendars and the Regional Calendars and other Events of Interest!
