In 2007 our first Mini came into our lives through our 9 year old daughter who wanted to do 'all the things'... Here we are in 2009 with our own Dog 4-H Club TEAM PAWSitive!
My Breeder Bio:
Monica Rinehart is a woman of faith, a wife since 1995, and mother of 5. She resides on her and her husband's farm in central WA where she has lived all her life. Monica is an AKC Breeder of Merit and owner of the AKC registered kennel name 'Wiggle Rump' Ranch. She began her MAS adventure in 2006 with her daughter's search for a puppy. This puppy lead her to volunteer service in WSU 4H program as a dog club leader and 4H council member for 7 years. She became a member of NAMASCUSA. Upon her children's completion of Dog 4H, they participated in AKC events when they opened to the MAS earning their first title in Agility with the girl and dog that started it all.
Monica maintains the goal of excellence in her breeding program and continues to be a student of the breed; temperament, health, structure, genetics and movement. She confers with mentors, behaviorist, and trainers, utilizes puppy rearing programs, OFA and DNA tests all her dogs, participates in research studies, attends canine seminars, and seeks AKC dog conformation/performance titles. She desires to help the club in its work to forward the AKC Miniature American Shepherd.
Thank you again for you interest in our program! Let me know if you have any questions and/or are ready for the next step.
