Rafter JM Aussies' Foster/Rehome Program

Health Tested & Guaranteed

We health tested our adults with Paw Print Genetics and OFA and guaranteed our puppies. 

Multi Registered

We registered our Australian Shepherds with American Stock Dog Registry (ASDR), International Miniature Australian Shepherd Club (IMASC) and Miniature Australian Shepherd Club of America (MASCA). 

Proven Performance

Not only was our breeding program rich in champion bloodlines, but the majority of our adult mini aussies had achieved their Champion titles, including National and International titles along with Best Of Breed & Best In Show awards!

"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

We are glad you found us!  In 2022 we made the tough decision to end our breeding program and retire from the canine world.  Valuing the effort I put into my website and the wealth of information including pedigrees, genetic info, helpful links, etc. that I have put together for over a decade, I have made the decision to leave my website up for a reference for anyone that can use it.  I hope you find something useful!  If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!

*We will continue our foster/rehome program even after the retirement of our kennel to

ensure all of our past puppies will forever have a good home, in the event they should need to be rehomed!

Sometimes past puppies/dogs find themselves in situations where they need to be rehomed.  Maybe there has been a change in family dynamics, or an unforeseen event that causes a pup to need to be rehomed.  We don't judge, we welcome them back with open arms and find the perfect fit for them!  If you would like to be placed on a list to either foster or adopt one of these puppies/dogs, please contact us and let us know.   We are always happy to bring a pup back to us, regardless of age, but we also must protect our personal dogs and any dog that comes back here must go through a 2 week quarantine!  Add that to leaving the family that they have known and it can be a very stressful situation.  We try our best to place these pups quickly and, if at all possible, bypass the quarantine here at the ranch.  We don't typically have many rehomes, so you may be on a list for a while, but having a list of homes ready to accept these babies makes the transition on them much easier when they do come along!  

We have now officially retired and no longer have any dogs available. 

Health Testing

Health testing has become increasingly popular in the dog world over the past 15 years or so.  But what do we do with this information?   Click the link to learn more about  Multi-Drug Resistance 1 (MDR1) and Degenerative Myelopathy (DM), two of the common genetic mutations that can affect Australian Shepherds (of any size), the testing for them, and what your results mean. >>>  MDR1 & DM <<<
