    AKC Miniature American Shepherds
Miss Carmen-Our Big City Girl in Buffalo NY
Thank you, Bill And Dawn Knapp. If anyone ever gives me a hard time about buying from a breeder, I'm going to tell them all about you two. This is how every puppy should come into this world; cherished and enriched by people who really care about dogs.”

Debbie - 'You make me so nostalgic! Sydney was similar. They are so smart. When I am ready, I hope to get in touch with your Bill and Dawn Knapp!'
Andrea - "Oh my goodness, please do! Their pups are not just beautiful, they're like the way Aussies can be if no one messes up their heads and ruins them. No bad experiences to undo, just good stuff to build on.
Handsome Regal!

Charming Cooper!
Hubby and I had bred and shown Jack 
Russell's for 19 yrs. We have one Jack left (13ys). So I did some research looking on what breed I wanted... my Aunt who's was 93 at the time said why don't you check into an Aussie... your cousins dogs are wonderful. 
 I found Dawn & Bill Knapp, and was invited to come to their house. I asked a lot of questions...and they answered them all. Must of talked for over an hour or two ...felt real comfortable and got to see all of theirs (mini americans) and their other animals...horses..ect. I am so happy that I found good breeders and that I own one WONDERFUL dog!

Bill and Dawn were great to work with and very accommodating. They did everything they could to make the process easier for us to bring Harper to Ohio and made sure she went to a loving home. They have continued to check in on her even after her departure. Harper is very loving, smart, and playful. She has been a great addition to our family!”

Family fun time!

We purchased a Miniature American Shepherd from Bill & Dawn Knapp. (KnappTyme) Bill & Dawn breed these puppies to be good quality, which includes temperament as well as show quality. Our dog has a great personality & the best temperament I have had in a dog. By the time he came to us at 8 weeks, he had already been socialized & started on potty training. He adjusted immediately into our home with an additional dog & cat. Our dog has picked up obedience & tricks very quickly. The Knapp’s continue to be helpful in the raising of our puppy even after he has become part of our family. They are great people to work with. I would highly recommend KnappTyme puppies to anyone wanting a Miniature American Shepherd.
