Sandy Travis   Here's what Sandy Travis, the owner of Travis Dogs kennel and the breeder of famous Cordova's Spike:
«I knew Bob and Doris Cordova through Quarter Horse Shows and they fell in love with my little dogs. In 1978 they bought a puppy from me and named him Cordovas Spike and he received his Australian Shepherd papers with NSDR and than later got the Miniature added to his papers (we all were very proud of the Miniature on the papers). Later with the addition of the Toy/Mini sizes, the dogs papers would state one or the other depending on the size of the dog.

Although Spike qualified as a Toy, his papers were never changed. Spike was beautiful with a lot of refinement to fit his small size of approx 13". So you see, the Toy was the first to be bred to the Standard to get the Mini. I must tell everyone how thankful I am to Doris and how important it was to her to have registered Australian Shepherds no matter what size they were.»


Cordova's Spike is a legendary dog. His children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren - the founders of independent lines, became fundamental producers in many kennels of Miniature American Shepherds in the USA.
