The Aussies History

The Australian Shepherd didn't developed in Australia like many think. They think the dog was developed in the Pryneese Mountains somewhere between France and Spain.
The named comes from the association with the Basque Shepherd which came from Australia to America in the 1800's. Other names for the Australian Shepherd can be Spanish Shepherd , Pastor Dog, Bob-Tail (some Aussies have naturally bobbed tails) and the New Mexican Shepard.
