Australian Shepherd - genetic tests

The Australian Shepherd, a favorite herding dog of cowboys, is a medium-sized dog with a keen, penetrating gaze in the eye. The coats of the Australian Shepherd offer various looks, including merle (a spotted pattern with lightened shades of dark color). In all respects, Australian Shepherds are the picture of rugged and agile cattle chasers. These dogs have an irresistible drive to herd anything: birds, dogs, children. This strong working instinct and agility can make them too active for a sedentary pet owner. However, if you're looking for a smart, tireless partner for work or sport, Aussie might be your breed choice.
