Miniature American Shepherds of Canada (MASCAN) is the premier club for Miniature American Shepherd dogs in CANADA, serving as a point of communication and information for owners and enthusiasts of the breed.
MASCAN is an affiliate club of MASCUSA (the Miniature American Shepherd Club of the United States of America) the USA parent.
In 2012 the breed received AKC recognition under the name of 'Miniature American Shepherds'. MASCAN was formed in 2014 by a group of Miniature American Shepherd breeders who are strongly committed to the development of the breed on Canadian soil.
We now actively promote the breed under it's new name and after successfully getting on CKC's list of Breeds, we look forward to achieving full Canadian Kennel Club breed recognition for these wonderful dogs in due course.
