The History of the Mini Aussie

HSF4/HC/Hereditary Cataracts: Please note that some of our dogs have 1 copy of HSF4. We do not breed 2 HSF4 dogs together. HSF4 is a linkage genet that is *related* to cataracts. Many HSF4 dogs never get cataracts and those with only 1 copy of the gene often get a type of cataract that don't actually affect their vision. We test all our dogs yearly to see if eye problems are developing.


MDR1: Please note that we recommend treating all aussies as MDR1 positive regardless of testing status.  Reactions have been observed in MDR1 negative dogs.
