Australian Shepherd

I have heard many, many rumors about where my relatives came from and I'm not sure which one is right. My mom always told me never to repeat anything for a fact that I didn't know was the truth, so I guess I won't tell you my family history.

Suffice it to say that I am not from Australia and there are hardly any two of us Australian Shepherds that are identical. Each one of us seems to have our own unique coloration and markings.( If we are born with a tail, it is usually bobbed while we are still very young.)

I really like people, but my first love is working with livestock. I can herd anything on four legs, and I sometimes play at herding humans, just for the fun of it. I might enjoy being a family pet, but only if you have a place for me to run and exercise.

My herding instinct is very strong, so it is frustrating for me not to have any livestock to work with. I need to stay fit.

When fully grown, I am between 18 and 23 inches tall (45.7 to 58.4 centimeters) and I weigh between 35 and 70 pounds (15.8 to 31.5 kilograms).
