All-American Working Dog
The Australian shepherd is the classic working dog: masterful stock herder, champion Frisbee, Flyball and agility participant, and accomplished in search and rescue, therapy, service and guiding the blind.
While the breed loves to work, it also loves its family and is fiercely loyal and affectionate with its owners.
Despite its name, the breed is not from Australia. Many would be surprised to learn that the Australian shepherd is actually an American-bred dog.
