The Australian Shepherd is a well-balanced dog of medium size and bone. He is attentive and animated, showing strength and stamina combined with unusual agility. Slightly longer than tall, he has a coat of moderate length and coarseness with colouring that offers variety and individuality in each specimen. An identifying characteristic is his natural or docked bobtail. In each sex, masculinity or femininity is well defined.

The Aussie’s character is as variable as he is versatile and is unique to each dog, much like his coat and markings are. Some are more drivey than others, some are more or less protective than others, and some are downright clownish. All Aussies, however, are super smart and hugely devoted – all Aussies are ready to be your next very best friend and personal shadow.

The Aussie’s great energy and athleticism makes him an ideal companion for active, outdoorsy people and those interested in dog performance sports and activities such as agility, herding, fly-ball, Rally-O, and obedience. This dog’s idea of a good time is hiking in the woods in any kind of weather, swimming at the cottage, retrieving, learning new tricks – any kind of physical or mental activity, followed by a nap at your feet.

Despite the name of this breed, the Australian Shepherd was actually developed fully in the United States by American ranchers, where they worked as herding dogs. Although the miniature version is not yet accepted as a breed, the standard size of Australian Shepherd was registered with the AKC in the early 1990s.
The life expectancy of the Australian Shepherd is around 12-15 years. Some of the health problems and issues that are associated with this breed include cataracts, glaucoma, epilepsy, heart problems, allergies, skin problems, and cancers. You should ensure that the parents have OFA and CERF certificates.
