About Us

We Are Australian Shepherds



Australian Shepherds have been around since 1860. We are known for our intelligence, gentleness, devotion, loyalty and uncompromising courage, strength and endurance in the face of danger or the need to come to your rescue.

The job we are bred to do calls for strength of body, intelligence of mind  and a willingness to work long hard hours all day, every day in all kinds of weather from freezing snow and ice of Antartica to the hot dry plains of Texas and in all kinds of  terrain.

We will trail with you while riding horses, walking trails for fun or riding your bicycle. We have incredible energy and intelligence.  But left alone with nothing to do, we can be just as destructive form loneliness and boredom as we are helpful when there is a job to be done.

We are Australian Shepherds.

 The Australian Shepherd first came into its own about 150 years ago. We are the only herding stock dog originally bred in the
United States. We are truly American made, being a melting pot of many different breeds to become what we are today.  We can herd one thousand sheep with a few buddies and one human shepherd.  But we don’t stop there.  We also herd ducks, geese,  chickens, rabbits, horses, and cows.  We adjust our methods of herding depending on what is needed for each type of animal we are responsible for.  And we

will protect these animals with as much vigor and loyalty as we use to herd them.

We have guarded sheep, ducks, horses, cows and other farm animals – so our eyes are definitely on you. Our guarding instincts are just as strong as our herding instincts. And we will guard the person or family we love with every ounce of love and devotion in our hearts. We get the job done. 

We are Australian Shepherds.

We will run your home, if we think you are not doing it correctly.  We can be high maintenance.  If you are not an avid Aussie person, if you have never had an Aussie before, or been raised close to one; If you are not 100% sure that this is the dog for you; then the Aussie may not be the best choice for you as a pet.  However – if you know and understand our unique personality and breed. If you love the Australian Shepherd and can handle a strong minded, extremely active, highly intelligent dog that doesn’t mind leading, if needed.  Then the Aussie will give you its whole heart, willingly.  It will be devoted to you and your family with all that is in its heart.  It will love you forever.

This is the Australian Shepherd.
