Naughty is a special little red merle girl who was born at Crimson Miniature American Shepherds on June 23, 2022. Our outstanding girl Shine is her mother and Sparkle is her aunt. Naughty’s father is Platinum Grand Champion Blue Elk Beginning of an Icon (Legend).

Naughty was co-bred with Sheila Hoskins at Woodridge Aussies and is owned by Teresa at Crimson MAS. This special girl isn’t a naughty puppy though, she is very sweet and loves to cuddle. Naughty’s biggest vice is that she loves to hide her toys and chew  toys so she can guard them against the other dogs. Naughty is 15 1/2” tall.

Naughty won a Best in Show puppy at a UKC show when she was just under 4 months old and competed in several Beginner Puppy classes at AKC shows.
