Australian Shepherd

Surprisingly, despite its name, this dog comes from America! Well proportioned, of medium size and bone, it is flexible and agile. Its hair is medium length, straight or wavy, and weather resistant!
Originally used as a sheepdog , it has a pronounced instinct to guard. It can be reserved at first sight, but will prove loving and somewhat quarrelsome!
