About Us

I take pride in producing top quality Miniature Australian Shepherds. It is my mission to provide you and your family with a puppy that displays the temperament, working ability, and structure of the Australian Shepherd. Miniature Australian Shepherds display all of the same traits as a full size Aussie, so please do your research before adding a Mini Aussie to your home. 

I am a "lifetime breeder," meaning I don't just disappear after a sale. I am always here to answer questions for potential and current puppy owners. 

If you have any questions about me or my dogs, please don't hesitate to ask. 


The next puppy born at Rafter 22 Aussies will be puppy #100 with the American Stock Dog Registry! The buyer who chooses the 100th puppy will win an additional prize. I will not share which puppy was born 1st until AFTER all puppies have been sold to ensure that the pick list remains fair.

Our Story

I started breeding Miniature Australian Shepherds in 2016. I can honestly say this is the most challenging and rewarding job I will ever have. My dogs are my life; my world revolves around them. I picked my first Aussie/Border Collie, Trisha, when I was just 2 years old. I chose her out of a group of puppies because her hair color matched mine. Trisha was my best friend, confidant, and loyal companion for 15 years. My love for the temperament and looks of Australian Shepherds has continued to grow from that point forward. These dogs never cease to amaze me!
