Why St James?
Setting the standard for excellence
As an AKC preservation breeder, we follow strict standards and health guidelines. We set the standard for excellence in our industry. Each of our dogs are genetically tested for a full Aussie panel and then tested again for every genetic disease test available for dogs in general. This includes over 200 diseases which are common in dogs. All our medical needs are supported and performed by a licensed veterinarian. We never cut corners on the health of our animals. Our program demands pups go home with a total of two doctor exams to include a full physical teeth to tail,fecal and puppy vaccinations. Beyond our outstanding medical and health program, our dogs are family. Our puppies are born and raised in the comfort of our home. There is constant care from the time they are born until they leave at 8 weeks for their new families. Because of this, our puppies excel in socialization and quickly settle into their new surroundings. As a Vegan, it is personally important to me to change the view on breeders and how they keep and treat their animals. With a rescue sanctuary for all dogs on our property that is funded by our Aussie program, we are more than just a preservation breeder. We are a champion for all animals. St James defines how animals should be treated and how the breed should be protected for our future generations. Our program funds the medical needs and gives life saving surgeries to rescue pups on their way to find their forever home. We support local rescues and vegan education. Our puppies come with a lifetime support from our family. We love to stay in touch and hear about how the puppies are growing and how they have impacted and changed people's lives. We will answer any and all questions about the breed and our program.
