Country of Origin:Australian Cattle Dogs are amazing. They are both smart and long living. They were bred of course in Australia where when the cattle herders weren’t able to herd the unruly cattle. A man named Thomas Hall crossed blue merle smooth Highland Collie with dingoes to create a breed know as "Hall’s Heelers”. Later they were crossed with Bull Terriers to be more aggressive and then a Dalmatian so they could run long distances to keep up with the horses carriages. In 1980 they were recognized by the American Kennel club. An Australian Cattle Dog named Bluey lived from 1910 to 1939 giving him the Guinness World Record for longest canine life span.

Size:The Australian Cattle Dog has a shoulder height of 43-51 cm (17-20 in) and weighs 12-18 kg (25-50 lbs). It is a fast, strong breed with powerful muscles and a distinct appearance from its dingo heritage. The Australian Cattle Dog has a broad head with dark brown, oval eyes, small, pricked ears, and a scissors bite. It has a low set tail which curves in slightly between the legs and is docked only in American pets. The Australian Cattle Dog is slightly longer than it is tall.

Coat: The Australian Cattle Dog’s outer coat is weather resistant, short, and somewhat rough. The inner layer is short and thick. There are a variety of coat colors: red speckled (with possible dark markings on the head), or blue/blue mottled with possible markings of any color but black. Australian Cattle Dogs are born with a white coat which darkens increasingly over time. They shed once or twice a year.

Character: The Australian Cattle Dog is intelligent and willing to work. It is loyal and affectionate, and seldom barks. Bred to herd, Australian Cattle Dogs are very energetic and love to play. They can be stubborn and independent, but are highly obedient and attentive if properly exercised and socialized.

Temperament: The Australian Cattle Dog makes an ideal companion for children and other dogs if adequately socialized when young (though it may nip at running children due to its herding instinct). Australian Cattle Dogs are wary of strangers. They make good guard dogs if trained.

Care: The Australian Cattle Dog requires only occasional grooming with a brush or comb to remove dead hairs. Musculoskeletal and reproductive ailments are common areas of concern. The Australian Cattle Dog is comfortable in warm and cool weather, but prefers to live indoors. Australian Cattle Dogs have a life span of 11-13 years and litters of 4-8 puppies.

Training: The Australian Cattle Dog is highly intelligent, making the training process simple. It is willing and able to learn a wide variety of tricks, and sports such as catch or Frisbee. Australian Cattle Dogs must be kept occupied with tasks and provided companionship or they will become destructive and mischievous.

Activity: Constant exercise and activity are required to keep the Australian Cattle Dog happy. If you are unable to commit to this, this may not be the breed for you. The Australian Cattle Dog is definitely unsuited to apartment life.
