My experience with Pleasant Valley Miniature American Shepherds has been wonderful. Violet is a true family companion. Her loyalty and unconditional love makes her an ideal family member. For anyone interested in a high quality purebred Miniature American Shepherd, this is the breeder to trust. The Martin's are dedicated to performing appropriate genetic testing for this breed to ensure they do not pass on congenital/genetic diseases in their bloodline. If you are looking for a dog for conformation, agility or family pet, consider Pleasant Valley Miniature American Shepards !!!

Breeder is very pleasant to work with, she is honest, very knowledgeable and ready to spend time with you explaining and teaching. This family puts a lot of heart in to what they do. Puppies are high quality too, everyone is impressed with my pup. I highly recommend.

Having never owed a puppy or this breed of dog, Lori and her Husband took time to share their experience and knowledge of them in their home They have an excellent clean and safe environment to raise puppies and treat them as part of their family. It's obvious the love they have for their Mini Aussies. I'm so impressed with this intelligent, energetic, loving breed my only regret is not getting one sooner! Thank you Lori for all the happiness you brought to our family and trusting me to own one of the best breeds ever. My Arrow is so perfect for us!

The breeder Lori martin has been very helpful to my needs and questions. Kodi has been a very loving and smart out going dog and I am very glad I purchased him from her. He is a very beautiful dog. I get lots of compliments and he is very friendly. We love him very much!

I had the easiest experience with Lori and her husband. They kept me informed about the puppy that I had chosen and sent pictures of the little guy. They were available and ready to answer all of my questions, even the silly ones. Not having a puppy in almost 20 years there were many questions. I now have an almost 13 week old darling boy who was already very socialized when I picked him up at 8 weeks. They have a very good program and I would recommend them highly to anyone!

We purchased a puppy from Lori August 2018. This was my first Australian Shepherd and I was glad to meet a breeder that could mentor me in my journey toward agility competitions. Her puppies are healthy and well handled which has made my job much easier during the critical socializing stage. The puppy has become a real magnet for people with a winning personality that is irresistible in public places. For an adorable Aussie, I highly recommend Pleasant Valley Aussies.

Annie is such a treasure. The whole process of receiving her went really smoothly, from the initial visit, purchase, and shipping process via a flight to the east coast. Medical wise I have had no issues with her at all. She's a healthy, happy dog, who learns tricks and commands extremely quickly. One of the smartest dogs I have the privilege of owning/taking care of. I recommend Pleasant Valley puppies to friends who obsess over how amazing Annie is :)

Bringing Ollie home one year ago was the best decision of my life! Everywhere I go I get compliments and questions about what a gorgeous, well behaved pup she is and so much is thanks to the wonderful breeding and care of Lori and her family. There is no question that I would go back to Lori! She is knowledgeable, kind and committed to raising puppies that will steal your heart. :)

What can I say,
We bought a Mini Female Blue Merle
And she’s so Perfect!
There were a few to choose from and they were all so beautiful. The Breeders name is Lori and she is beyond amazing. She was so nice and so informative. She was very professional and is very good at breeding. I highly recommend going through her. Go check out her new batch next year.
We have has the best experience with Pleasant Valley. They take such good care of their dogs & pups, they are so unbelievably knowledgeable about Mini Americans.
All puppies are healthy and happy and they do so much with the pups before they go home with you. Start the potty training process, kennel training, vaccines, etc.
Breeder is so helpful and will answer all questions.
We love our Takoda and are so happy with our decision to go with this amazing family :)
