Breeder of Miniature American Shepherds to a meticulously high standard.


Currently based in Cyprus, but due to return to the UK in 2020. Formerly known as Thunderpaws Mini’s, but now known as Ironpaws Miniature American Shepherds. 

We were lucky enough to get Dunnellon’s Boomerang ‘Boomer’ our first Miniature American Shepherd from Jessica Steward at Dunnellon’s in May 2012 little did we know that this small unassuming Puppy was to change our world for ever!

Blessed with the arrival of Gottabe’s Supernova ‘Nova’ in July 2014 from Lorrie McClelland at Gottabe’s in the USA we had the foundation of our lines.

Nova’s first litter in August 2016 blessed us with 3 girls and 1 boy, we kept a girl Ironpaw’s Iron Lady ‘Apollo’ our family was complete.

Miniature American Shepherds are wonderfully intelligent, fearlessly loyal, agile and driven. They do come with an off switch which on occasions can be faulty! Which very much means they are not for the faint heart. My family and I are 100 %  hooked on the breed and since getting them we have never looked back.
