Australian Shepherd Dog Breed

The Definitive Guide To Australian Shepherd Dogs

Bred in the western United States to perform a similar role to the Australian Heeler, this high-energy, good-natured medium breed is a working dog. They possess natural intelligence and, while they are wary of strangers, are intensely friendly if socialized early. Happiest when they have too much work to do, they thrive in competitive canine sports and endurance contests. They also make excellent outdoor buddies, their natural courage and spunky outlook leading them to follow their human pack in a variety of non-doggy activities.
