Australian Shepherds are loyal, easygoing, and dependable. These dogs are great family pets, police dogs, herding animals, and competitors in obedience trials. Their eyes will never leave you indifferent?.
Some Indian tribes called this dog breed the “Ghost Eye Dog” because of its phantom-like eyes.
The Australian Shepherd Club of America (ASCA) standard calls for the Australian shepherd to stand between 18 and 23 inches (46 and 58 cm) at the withers, females being 18 to 22 inches (46 to 56 cm) and males measuring 19 to 23 inches (48 to 58 cm); however, quality is not to be sacrificed in favor of size.
