A member of our Miniature American Shepherd family has been forced to evacuate due to the flooding caused by hurricane Harvey. Leslie Peckham, her husband Bo, and Southern Star kennel fled Sour Lake, TX on Sunday but the rain continued for days afterwards. As you can see in the photo, they have been unable to return but reports from the area indicates their home, barns, farm implements, RV, and kennel have been under an estimated 4 to 5 feet of water. The Peckhams DID have some flood insurance but no coverage on contents. They are facing returning to their worst nightmare, sorting through wet, moldy, muddy belongings and repairing damages before their home is livable. Many have inquired as to how they can help her. We have arranged for Leslie to receive donations via PayPal. Click the link and this will take you straight to her Paypal for Donations. THANK YOU!
The Miniature American Shepherd Club of the USA, Inc. (MASCUSA) is the AKC Parent Club for the Miniature American Shepherd. MASCUSA ended their registry services in 2016 but the AKC studbook for this breed remains open. MASCSUA entered into a contract with Stock Dog Registry Services to continue the registry services that had previously been provided by the club. Stock Dog Registry Services is the only registry selected by MASCUSA through which dogs can be registered with AKC.
Stock Dog Registry Services was founded in 2016 to provide a pedigree verification process for dogs entering the American Kennel Club as Miniature American Shepherds (MAS) as well as registering litters for offspring of various crosses that wish to enter AKC.
Please see the AKC page for the acceptable registries and current rules and requirements.
