Australian Cattle Dog - Herding Dog
The Australian Cattle Dog is a breed of herding dog developed for droving cattle over long distances. A courageous and tireless worker, the Australian Cattle Dog is an intelligent and athletic companion and a loving family pet. The dogs have either red-brown or blue-black hair and motivate reluctant sheep by nipping at their heels – hence the dogs’ affectionate nickname, ‘Red Heeler’ or ‘Blue Heeler’.
