Female Born 04/06/15 40 cm Blue Merle Tri Red-factored AKC & KC Registered



Marvel was bred by Ivormyth Miniature American Shepherds (formally Ivorred) in the UK.

Marvel by name, Marvel by nature…

She is fun, loyal and a real joy to own. Marvel has a great work ethic, high drive, and enthusiasm for life. She is a much loved member of the family and has a perfect temperament around livestock. Her favourite activities are trick training and agility, but she’s highly versatile and can turn her paw to anything. With an athletic build and fantastic jumping style, Marvel is a natural sporting dog.

Marvel measured 41.1 cm at 19 months, and received 39.3 cm for her official UKA agility measure at 2 years. She was a member of UKMASC’s Crufts Qualifier Team in 2017.

At just 4 months old Marvel won the UK’s Family Pet Show trick competition, followed by overall dog of the show for her tricks. By 9 months old Marvel was a member of the Kennel Club’s Puppy Display Team at Crufts, 2016. In 2017 she won the UK Trick Dog Association’s 4 week long trick training competition with skills such as climbing a ladder, playing musical chairs and going shopping (pushing a trolley and put items in it). In January 2018 Marvel was invited to audition for Britain’s Got Talent.

What does Marvel do?


Marvel was born in the UK, but stems from original US MAS lines.

Her sire, Ringo, stands at 38cm and is a US import. His is full of old, original, mini lines and gives good structure, bone and coat to his pups.

Double R Ringo

Marvel’s dam, Koda, was produced from 2 of the UK’s first MAS imports from the USA. She competes in agility at G5 and boasts a fantastic temperament and work ethic.

We have plans to produce a 3rd litter from Marvel with our boy Chase (Away To Me Cut To The Chase) in late 2020 / early 2021.

This litter will have the possibility of producing all colours (black tri, red tri, blue merle & red merle) and will be suitable for sporting homes – whether heelwork to music, agility or obedience; as well as working homes – working livestock, search and rescue or similar; show homes and active pet homes. All puppies will be evaluated prior to being placed.

All plans are subject to change – please contact us to be kept up-to-date.

Please see our Litter Plan page for more details.
