Miniature American Shepherd

Say hello to Fia, the female miniature American Shepherd dog talent. Fia is a strikingly beautiful female with piercing blue eyes and a beautiful red, tan and white coat. She is an extremely friendly, playful and photogenic, Miniature American Shepherd, which is very similar to Mini Australian Shepherd. She is very unique in Ireland such that there aren’t too many Mini American/Australian Shepherd dogs on the island.

With model good looks, Fia is also an exceptionally well trained trick dog with a huge list of behaviours and skills. This medium-sized dog is intelligent and obedient and will respond to commands from a distance. She is very eager-to-please, curious and excited, always ready for her next task or command. She is attentive to her surroundings and always very engaged, plus the fact she will respond to both voice and hand signals onset.

This versatile animal extra has been well socialised from a young age. She can work with people of all ages including children with no issues. As well as being suitable to work alongside other dogs too.


In all, Fia the miniature American Shepherd, is a reliable pet on set, and a highly skilled actor for a range of advertising briefs.



Fia has onset experience, having modelled for an Irish pet accessories brand on an ongoing basis, for harnesses, collars, leads etc.

Fia was also chosen for Butternut Box Ireland, billboard campaign last year. She attended a professional photoshoot and her selected photos were on billboards for a few months.

Yuno Energy’s newest commercial showcasing their services stars Vespa, Doris, and Fia in the spotlight!
