Australian Shepherd Breed Overview

The Australian Shepherd is a relatively new breed of dog, having only been developed in the 19th century. However, the origins of the breed are somewhat mysterious. Some believe that the Australian Shepherd is descended from Spanish Sheepdogs, while others believe that they are the product of interbreeding between collies and other herding dogs. Regardless of their origins, Aussies quickly became popular in their namesake country due to their intelligence, trainability, and herding ability.

In the early 20th century, the breed began to gain popularity in the United States as well, and today they are one of the most popular breeds in America. Thanks to their versatility and friendly nature, Australian Shepherds make excellent companion animals as well as working dogs, and they continue to be prized for their many positive qualities.

Australian Shepherd Puppy Health Considerations

Though generally very happy and long-lived — with an average lifespan of around 12-15 years — our Australian Shepherds for sale are not without their unique health concerns. Like every breed of dog, there are a few conditions you should be aware of before you consider purchasing one of our Aussie puppies for sale. Understanding the risks allows you to know the signs and prevent small health concerns from turning into big ones.

Australian Shepherd puppies are at a somewhat elevated risk for developing the following conditions:

  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Elbow Dysplasia
  • Deafness
  • Eye Problems
  • Allergies

Some of the most common problems seen in Australian Shepherds include hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, and congenital deafness. Other issues that may be seen in this breed include eye problems such as cataracts.

Aussie Puppies Coat & Coat Care

Australian Shepherds are a beautiful breed of dog, and their coat is one of their most distinguishing features. The coat is medium-length and density, with a thick undercoat that helps to keep the dog warm in cooler weather. The outer coat is water-resistant, making the breed an excellent choice for working dogs who spend a lot of time outdoors.

When it comes to coat care, Australian Shepherds are relatively low-maintenance. A regular brushing will help to remove dead hair and keep the coat healthy and shiny. The breed does shed year-round, so owners need to be prepared for some extra vacuuming.
