One of our favorite breeds is the Australian Shepherd! This beautiful breed is known as both a brilliant thinker and an athlete. The Australian Shepherd grows to around 20 inches tall. Aussie pups are highly intelligent, so keep them busy with training and toys that exercise the mind. Puppy training is typically very easy, since the Aussie wants to learn and will enjoy new tricks and tasks. This breed has a high work drive, so keeping your Aussie well exercised is an absolute necessity. The Australian Shepherd is gentle and aware around children and other animals and its high intelligence coupled with a big personality will win your heart over. This is a great running partner and an amazing friend to have. Take home your new Aussie today!
