Australian Shepherds

Beauty, brains, personality and energy to spare!

Contrary to its name, the Australian Shepherd is an All-American breed. Its 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, work all day and protect their stock as well as being a family companion. All of these wonderful traits are still found in the Aussie, but those same traits may make it an unsuitable companion for some people. Find out about their personality, history, and all of those wonderful colors that make them so unique. Once you do, you will appreciate your best friend a little more. Maybe you’ll even decide an Aussie is in your future.
