 Welcome to Trifecta. We are located in Spring Valley, east of San Diego, CA.

As a small-scale preservation breeder of Miniature American Shepherds, we are working conscientiously to breed healthy, sound-minded dogs. Our Miniature American Shepherds meet the breed standard and are a joy to own.
Thank you for taking the time to research this wonderful breed to find a reputable breeder that is eager to work with you!

We offer amazing puppies!  Our pups are intelligent, beautiful, well raised and grow up to be the best family companions.  All pups are raised in a loving home environment with the Puppy Culture system that provides an experience-rich foundation for them.  This system promotes physical, social & cognitive development. This means you can be confident your new pup will have a great start to being a happy, and well-adjusted dog. 

Our parent dogs have been extensively tested for genetic diseases, meaning you can trust that your puppy is healthy and free from inherited genetic health issues. Temperament is one of the most important things for us, and we are constantly being recognized for the exceptional temperament of our dogs and puppies.
