In 2015, Wendy Howard and her husband Jim made the decision to retire.  One of their main concerns was the continuation of their Legacy in the world of toy aussies.  In late 2015, I made the decision to honor my friend and mentor and worked with Wendy to update her website with my information.  At the time, I did not want to give up my own kennel name as it was dear to me.  In 2016, I decided to quit maintaining two websites and consolidate the two into one.


Justa Little Aussie + MarLoWin Aussie = MarLoWin's Justa Little Aussie.

A little about me.    My husband Stephen and I live outside of Owensboro, Kentucky on approximately fifteen acres.  Our first Miniature Australian Shepherd was named Marlow.  My Kennel name is a combination of Marlow and my last name Winston.  When I purchased my first "Toy" Aussie I had no intention of becoming a breeder.   That quickly changed when I fell in love with all the aspects of the breed.  Aussies are like potato chips and you cannot stop at one.   I now have one of every color.  Ok, make that two. 


Although I am not a big breeder, I do take the health and care of my Aussies very seriously.   Our breeding adults are all tested for PRA-PRCD, MDR1, HC, DM and CEA-CH.  I have preliminary checks of patellas and at two years we have OFA testing done on patellas and Hips.   There are a lot of different opinions on testing, these are the ones that I test for.  If you are interested in a purchasing a puppy and want another type of test done, please contact me and we can talk about the options.

I truly believe that you cannot find a more loyal and loving companion than a mini aussie or toy aussie.   That being said, I would love to have you take a look at the mini aussies and toy aussies that are a part of my family.


In addition to the mini aussies and toy Aussies that we own, we also own the new AKC Breed Miniature American Shepherd.  For more information on the new breed, please click on our tab Miniature American Shepherd above.

If you have any questions about anything on my site or my mini aussies or toy aussies, please feel free to email me or give me a call.

MarLoWin's Justa Little Aussies take great pride in being among the top toy Australian shepherd breeders in the country.
