Despite their name, the Australian Shepherd has its origins in the United States. The modern “Aussie” came about when farmers crossed the Pyrenean Shepherd with several other herding breeds. They’ve been a trusty companion to cowboys and a beloved family pet ever since. Today, they not only herd sheep and cattle, but work as guide, search and rescue, and narcotics dogs.
