About The Australian Shepherd

Beauty, brains, personality and energy to spare!

Contrary to it’s name, the Australian Shepherd is an All-American breed. It’s roots can be traced back to the ranches of the American west and south. Looking for an all-around working dog, the ranchers needed dogs who could think on their own and make decisions, work all day and protect their stock and families as well as be a companion. All of these wonderful traits can still be found in the Aussie, but those same traits may make it an unsuitable companion for some people. Find out about their personality, their history, and all of those wonderful colors that make them so unique. Once you do, you can appreciate your best friend a little more, or maybe decide if an Aussie is in your future.
