One of those “only in America” tales is the Australian Shepherd, a thin, hardy ranch dog that originated in Europe and was developed in California by way of Australia. They are a staple of the rodeo circuit and intimately related to the cowboy lifestyle. The Australian Shepherd is a medium-sized working dog with a keen, penetrating glance in its eyes. It is the herding dog of choice for cowboys. Australian coats come in a variety of styles, such as merle (a mottled pattern with contrasting blue or red tones). They are the epitome of tough and quick stock movers in every manner. Aussies have an uncontrollable urge to herd anything, including dogs, children, and birds. Aussies may be too much of a dog for a sedentary pet owner because of their strong work ethic.
Australians are extraordinarily bright and highly capable of deceiving a gullible new owner. Overall, this pet isn’t appropriate for everyone. However, your quest may be over if you’re seeking for a smart, tenacious, and adaptable companion for work or sport.
