Nope! They are, in fact, from America xD!! But I'm not going to argue with the breed name they've been given for hundreds of years xP
I was really routing for the name "North America Shepherd" as the "Mini American Shepherd" sounds and looks too much like "Mini Aussie," but I'm just glad they finally changed it. Too bad most "breeders" will still market those dogs as "mini aussies" because it sounds appealing, meaning they get money.
