Colorful Australian Shepherd

But the qualities of this Australian Shepherd breed go far beyond their appearance.

-They’re highly intelligent, and adore having a sense of purpose which is why they excel when being trained.

-They’re perfect for the owner who is active, as they love to play ball, fetch Frisbees, and are masters at agility competitions. This Australian breed is not a dog for couch potatoes!

-They have strong guarding instincts, and are bred to herd. And herd they do! Strangers, your neighbors kids, your kids, you too if you should need to be herded.

-Australian Shepherds can have a vast array of eye colors, from hazel, green, blue, brown, amber and no doubt every color in between. Colorful eyes for a colorful dog with a colorful personality.

So pull your Aussie up on your lap (if it’s not off herding something) and see which names for Australian Shepherds you both respond well to.
