Our Story

Welcome to 4J Family Puppies! We, Brian and Rhonda, along with our four children thank you for considering one of our puppies. ​

We live on a small farm in rural Illinois. In 2007 we brought home our first Miniature Australian Shepherd. We have always had a love for the Aussie breed so having one around the home is a dream. A few years later we welcomed a second Aussie to our home. We raised a few litters of puppies and now we have three generations on the farm with us.

​ Over the years we have also added a few other love able breeds to our family. Including Aussiedoodles, Labradors, Labradoodles, and Goldendoodles. ​

Here at 4J Family Puppies, we strive to provide healthy, well-socialized puppies. All our puppies will have a health certificate and will be up to date on vaccinations. ​

Please contact Clint with any questions you have or to schedule a visit to our home. ​

PLEASE DO NOT OVER FEED YOUR DOG! Follow manufacture directions. Over feeding dogs is the greatest cause of cancer and joint problems in dogs. Keep them physically fit with top quality food in the correct quantity and plenty of exercise. Other than an occasional treat of scrambled eggs, some cheeses including cottage cheese we highly discourage human food given to dogs. Dog feed with corn, soy, or wheat products is also discouraged and not recommended. Cooked beef bones from your local butcher can be a healthy treat also. No chicken or turkey bones recommended!
