A little about me. My husband Stephen and I live outside of Owensboro, Kentucky on approximately fifteen acres. Our first Miniature Australian Shepherd was named Marlow. My Kennel name is a combination of Marlow and my last name Winston. When I purchased my first "Toy" Aussie I had no intention of becoming a breeder. That quickly changed when I fell in love with all the aspects of the breed. Aussies are like potato chips and you cannot stop at one. I was very lucky to have one of the best breeders in the Toy Aussie world as my friend and mentor.
In 2015, Wendy Howard and her husband Jim made the decision to retire. One of their main concerns was the continuation of their legacy in the world of toy aussies. In late 2015, my friend Wendy worked with me to update her website with my information. At the time, I did not want to give up my own kennel name as it was dear to me. In 2016, I decided to quit maintaining two websites and consolidate the two into one.

I am not a big breeder and I do take the health and care of my Aussies very seriously. Our breeding adults are all tested for PRA-PRCD, MDR1, HC, DM and CEA-CH. I have preliminary checks of patellas and at two years we have OFA testing done on patellas and Hips. There are a lot of different opinions on testing, these are the ones that I test for. If you are interested in a purchasing a puppy and want another type of test done, please contact me and we can talk about the options. I truly believe that you cannot find a more loyal and loving companion than a mini aussie or toy aussie. That being said, I would love to have you take a look at the mini aussies and toy aussies that are a part of my family. In addition to the mini aussies and toy Aussies that we own, we also own the new AKC Breed Miniature American Shepherd. For more information on the new breed, please click on our tab Miniature American Shepherd above. If you have any questions about anything on my site or my mini aussies or toy aussies, please feel free to email me or give me a call. MarLoWin's Justa Little Aussies take great pride in being among the top toy Australian shepherd breeders in the country. .
We love our boys here at MarLoWin Aussies. Each has been selected to add qualities into our breeding program. We love to show off our aussies and our boys are no exception. Most of our males have earned their ASDR Championship and have also earned either an Iabca International/National Championship. Click the picture above to go to Our Males Page to see more information on each one.
Each of our aussies are special to us. Above all they are our family pets. And yes, sometimes we have quite a few. I am blessed to be able to take my aussies to work with me, so from a young age they are socialized with all types of sounds and experiences.
We had a great time at the 2018 Bluegrass Showdown held in Elizabethtown, Ky. Our kids did very well in Rally, Agility and Nosework.
