How do you tell the difference between a mini australian shepherd and regular australian shepherd?

My Australian Shepherd is about 11 months old and 20 pounds. I am thinking she is a mini but I don’t know because I got her from some one that got her from someone else and had no papers and I can’t talk to them. Any ideas?
Prople are saying different things, I dint know what is right.

    At 11 months old & 20 pounds I would guess your dog is a Miniature Australian Shepherd. My 2 yr old Mini Aussie boy is 15 1/2" tall & weighs just under 18 pounds.
    Miniature Australian Shepherds are 14" – 18" @ the withers.
    Australian Shepherd females are 18" – 21" @ the withers.
    Australian Shepherd males are 20" – 23" @ the withers.

    At 11 months old and only 20 lbs she must be a mini. A standard size female would be 40 – 55 lbs and male 50 – 65 lbs.

    Aussies aren't really big dogs to begin with, some females only topping out at thirty pounds or so. So I doubt that she is a "mini", plus she is a puppy. She is still growing. She'll most likely gain several more pounds in the next seven months or so.

    Size difference. I think life span is a little shorter in a miniature.
    But I think your dog is a normal aussie dog.
