Australian Shepherds

Best friend, essential farm dog, search & rescue hero—the Australian Shepherd is many dogs to many people. One thing they all agree on: Aussies are awesome!

Bred for brains and bravery—at least when it comes to herding uncooperative cattle and sheep—Australian Shepherds bring their strong work ethic to everything they do. They’re smart, quick, biddable, energetic, and tough, a combination that makes them invaluable as working ranch dogs and unsurpassed as active home companions.
